Yoga 2 13 laptop - Windows 10 issues

2015-07-27, 17:58 PM

I thought it would be useful to start a topic for the Lenovo Yoga 2 13 Windows 10 issues, please reply with solutions, comments and additions :cattongue: After trying the insider preview of Windows 10 for several months I have noticed the following:

 

- Shutdown / standby bug: computer hangs often when trying to shutdown or enter standby mode -the display goes black, but the Windows touchkey below the screen still gives vibration feedback, power light stays on and fans keep spinning loud. The solution then is to hold the power button pressed for a long time to force shutdown or wait until the battery depletes. Very annoying!!!:catmad:

 

- Microphone volume very low, adjusting levels in Windows audio settings or Realtek control panel does not fix this. I have Lenovo's Windows 10 driver installed. See this regarding same problem on Yoga 2 Pro: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Windows-10/Audio-problems-microphone-very-quiet-on-Yoga-2-Pro/td-p/2118089

 

- Veriface Pro stopped working on Windows 10.:catsad: There is no downloadable file to try to reinstall the old version, nor have I seen Lenovo posting a Windows 10 version of Veriface somewhere.

 

- Lenovo's Intel HD4400 graphics Windows 10 driver still crashing sometimes, but somewhat less than the one from Windows Update.:catsad:

 

- Energy Manager and energy driver were not updated for Windows 10. I think this might be the cause of shutdown/standby hanging (see above).

 

- Battery lasts much less than on Windows 8.1!:catfrustrated:

Thanks for starting this topic.

 

Here is the official Windows 10 upgrade guide for IdeaPad Notebooks like the Yoga 2 13:
 
https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/documents/ht103611
 
The list of applications that are recommended to be uninstalled before upgrading is very long. :smileysurprised:

 

Veryface Pro is on this list, too.

Hello,

 

I upgraded my Yoga 2 13 to win 10 and I'm having the following problem:

Transition between Laptop, Tent, Tablet, etc does not work at all (always in laptop).

 

Any ideas?

Hey, diretz, have you tried turning off rotation lock? It took me a while to figure out... there are 2 ways to do that:

1) push a small round button on the right side with an crossed round arrow symbol to toggle rotation lock

2) open Win10 Notification center, you'll see a button for turning rotation lock on/off

@diretz:

 

Lenovo Transition is also on the list of applications which i posted above. I'm afraid that we have to wait for an update from Lenovo which is compatible to Windows 10.

thanks, luxx! I havent seen this article before. I hope Lenovo tells us if the apps can be reinstalled later or they are going to provide new versions of Energy manager and veriface.

Thanks for the answers.

Unforunately screen rotation locking-unlocking does not fixes the problem with transition.

By the way, which one manages transition: Lenovo Transition or Windows?

 

Thanks for the help.

Evening all, I have upgraded my yoga 2 to windows 10 but for some reason I can't connect to wifi? It won't show any networks? I looked in device manager and wifi drivers are hidden and won't give me option to enable them... I have tried downloading windows 10 drivers from Lenovo website but that won't work either :s I have also called customer support but they said nothing they can do I just have to factory reset but that means no windows 10 please help!!!!

transition can be downloaded from Yoga 2 Pro support site, or you can try Harmony from Yoga 3 support site. As I understand, it is the Lenovo Transition or Lenovo Harmony that tells windows to change the mode, without them windows only rotates screen. I might be wrong here, it is just speculation.
