Lenovo Yoga 2 13 Inquires

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently I added a 120gb adata m.2 2280 ssd into my sister' yoga 2 13 and performed a fresh install of Windows 10. I left the old sshd in for my sister to copy out her data. Now I want to take out hdd since it's really dead/broken. Reporting false capacity of 2TB. However some screws are stripped. any way to unscrew stripped torx screws? 

 

I also want to ask whether any other Yoga 2 13 users is facing disintegrating rubber surrounding the chassis.

This, and use the proper torx driver this time.

Ok, I've managed to get rid of the SSHD after I purchased proper torx drivers.

 

However, recently while I wait for my new laptop to arrive, I've been using my sister's Yoga 2 13 laptop and have noticed two things:

 

1) when I plug in the charger, the screen will freeze. Just the screen. Mouse and keyboard input are still being recognise. To unfreeze the screen, I have to unplug and replug the reversible charging plug. When, I unplug, everything goes back normal. If I plug charger in again and the screen freeze again, I then have to replug at the mains which then allows me to use the laptop while charging. This was not a behaviour experience before installing the SSD. 

 

2) screen brightness. I feel like the difference in brightness between 0-60 ish % is very minimal while the difference between 60 ish-100 % is great. I'm not sure whether this was experience before fresh install. I also feel that brightness is automatically adjustment subtly despite auto brightness being disable.

1) Really sounds like you had a corrupted file/files during installation. Can you make a new install disk and reinstall again?

 

2) Seems pretty normal. Linus went into depth on the topic in his video about edge browser offering better battery life.

 

I know you figured it out, but if you have a torx screw really strip on you, you can work the torx around for a few seconds and use a hex key. I have to do this all the time on high torque bolts made of softer metal.
