Ideapad 310-15ISK Repeatedly Logging Out/Start-up problem


I’ve had the Lenovo Ideapad since Dec 2016 and in the last week it’s started logging me out to the Windows log-in screen perhaps every 10-20seconds, then lets me back in with my password as usual.

Another two odd things (again only this week) are the mouse tracker often freezes on screens like the log-in screen or Ctrl-Alt-Del, and seemingly double-tapping enter releases it.

And on once occasion it seemed a Windows button was jammed (it physically wasn’t) so any keyboard prompt opened a shortcut.


Looking back I can see some start-up issues were from start-up programs, I’ve disabled them all. There was a duplicate of AVG on the start-up menu which I couldn’t disable which I needed to uninstall via add-remove programs.


The other thing worth mentioning is while UK-based and under warranty until Dec 2018 I’m in remote Central America until April so can’t pop into a PC shop easily!





Specs: Ideapad 310-15ISK (Non-touch).

Windows 10 version 1703. OS 15063.786.

Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50 GHz 2.59 GHz


64-bit system

PayPal not compatible with device

For some I reason the PayPal app is not compatible with my device.

I have a tab 4 8 and I’ve checked that it’s up to date.

I’ve only recently purchased this and I’m wondering why I can’t get the PayPal app.


Any ideas anyone?
