Hello, I have had my Y700 for 2 months. Right from the start I had the issue where it wouldn't seem to boot up, and I would have to put it to sleep a time or 2 before it would start windows. This problem seems to be solved. However, after installing the windows 10 anniversary update, the laptop will randomly 'freeze'. The keyboard will not respond, but I can still use the mouse. When I try to restart, the screen will go black, and it will not respond at all. I have to force shutdown with power button. After turning back on, it will work for 20-30 min and then do the same thing. I did a total reinstall of windows 10 and have updated bios to the 37, but it is doing the same thing. Lenovo Solutions Center does not detect hardware issues. Can someone please help me? Thanks!
Here are my specs:
HD: 256 SSD

I have the same problem. Lenovo IdeaPad Y700-15ISK, Windows10, latest bios veriso (37). If I restart my laptop after the keyboard froze up, I get a "Novo Button Menu" message, but the keyboard is still not working. Any word on fixes for this issue?

i had the exact same problem and downloading the lastest bios fixed it for me
it changed the Lenovo boot up logo too so i suppose i was running an older version? but i dont know why would you still have the issue if you have the latest one, it solved it for me

Have Ubuntu 16.04 + latest (as of 2018-March-20) nvidia drivers (don't have laptop at hand - can't tell exact version).
Solved by selecting to use ONLY Discreet GPU (Nvidia only - no switching between Intel HD and Geforce).
Selection must be made in BIOS ( To access BIOS press F2 during boot ).
So far solved all problems (have suspicion this can solve freezing problems on Windows as well)
Current BIOS version: CDCN27WW
