  1. Thanks for posting your experience with the Lenovo Q150 and Ubuntu 10.4. I have a Q150 on the way and plan to put Lucid on it first thing. Just wondering if you had any trouble with the basic installation. I've read of trouble with the wifi module and network card of the Q150 in Linux. Thanks again.

  3. Hi, I'm attempting to open one of these to upgrade the RAM. I've got the screws out, but seem to have some resistance in trying to open it. Are there certain tabs that must be depressed to open it? Thanks so much!

  4. Also remove the VGA screws. this a snap in cover try to remove it from where all the ports are, and go around try to un-snap it one edge at a time, that should do it.

  5. hello :)

    I have a problem with my lenovo q150
    it dosent work very well..When i push the power button of the computer
    works fine for a couple minutes and after that.. the computer shut down like crazy then I have to turn on the computer again ..and the same history .. What do u think that it is??


    I've got the screws out and i remove the VGA screws to examine it ( how many screws do i have to remove to open the lenovo q150?) .. cuz i think that the power button is the wrong one.

  7. Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried to upgrade the RAM to 4gb? I know the manufacturer says 2gb max, but i don't see where the limitation is. The D510 supports 4gbs, windows 7 supports it, and i think the chip-set supports 4gbs as well.

  10. I have tried this and it works great. i was suffering thru a charging period and would unplug to get me speed back until the battery croaked. Wash, rinse, repeat. Now I am rocking like a champ on the 90's we keep at out conference tables.

Ubuntu 17.10 running on Lenovo Yoga 920 with HiDPI and touch screen support

I resized the windows partiton to the minimun necessary (100G), disabled secure boot and I also remove bitlocker key encryption on windows drive, this allows Ubuntu to see that partition and allow windows to boot with secure boot disabled, without complaning.

This makes everything go easier if you want to keep windows arround on the same disk and dual boot with Ubuntu, you should do this it helps a lot. Even after you disable this, you can re-enable it back, both secure boot and bitlocker key encryption.

Before installing on windows updates resize your windows partition, installing all windows updates will not alow you to gain as much space as possible. After resizing the windows partition to the minimium size you want, install all windows updates, bios and driver updates.

I upgraded all windows updates to the latest version and all drivers to the latest version and upgraded the bios on windows to the latest version before installing Ubuntu, I don't think this makes much differenc…

Ubuntu GNOME 17.04 running with HiDPI and touch screen support








See my previous post on how to install Ubuntu on Yoga Pro 2 for Ubuntu GNOME 16.10.

I think Ubuntu GNOME is the best flavor of Ubuntu if you are running in HiDPI mode 3200x1800. All screen captured images are at HiDPI resolution.
Touch support Ubuntu gnome support for touch screen is pretty good on the desktop shell.
Chrome browser supports touch screen very well and much better than Firefox without any plug-ins.
The windows key on the screen panel works as the windows key on the keyboard.
Screen rotation is supported on the new gnome and disables the keyboard when the yoga is used as a tablet, side lock rotation button works to lock the screen in a certain rotation.



 What works Almost everything works great out of the box, there isn't many changes you need to do.
