I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,i have Lenovo ThinkPad T470 (LENOVO 20HD0002MC) and recently has started a strange problem:While booting at first Lenovo logo shows up (where you can get to BIOS by Enter key) and right after screen goes black. When i power down laptop and boot again (sometime few times) intead of the black screen there is a prompt for Bios password, like it should have and booting continues to OS.Enter key for BIOS doesnt work while it slill get stuck on black screen just right before it loads the BIOS (after trying few times with power -off/on it gets to BIOS and i can boot normally)I have BIOS firmware updated to the latest version, so as well drivers for hardware.Im not aware of any change that could potentionally start this issue, maybe after updating bios to some newer version.Otherwise im using Windows 10 with latest updates, but i dont think this could cause the issue as its way before windows loading.Thanks for the help.

A:Recommended power adapter/charger for Lenovo Thinkpad T470

I would buy the USB-C, thinking if or when I replace the laptop, the USB-C charger is more likely to work as a spare.  As far as wattage, the 45W will be lighter, but 65W may charge some devices faster and is more likely to be compatible with any replacement.  (I am not suggesting that you are going to replace the laptop soon, but things happen and situations change.)

You might have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard.  If that is the case, the only solution is to replace the board.  There is an array of power transistors that handles the switching back and forth between AC and battery.

ERROR0210: Stuck Key 01 Press <F1> to Setup This is what happens when I try to turn my laptop on. My battery is faulty, so my charging adapter has to stay plugged in at all times. I would normally power off the computer the right way but i began to feel lazy and i would just plug the adapter out, causing the power to be lost. I believe this contributed to my issue (according to my research). This has been an issue for about four months and i stopped trying to fix it. But, a few days ago, I tried again and instead of that usual error, it said: ERROR0210: KEY STUCK 7D I began pressing random keys to see if any were stuck, then the Windows logo randomly appeared.I was able to use it for a couple of days (I shut it down the correct way). There would be a blank black screen and "-" at the top left corner. But in less than 2 minutes it would disappear and i'd see the Windows logo.  This was all going well until last night, when the charger was accidentally plugged out. I tried turning it back on and i kept getting the initial error message: ERROR0210: Stuck Key 01 Press <F1> to Setup I don't know what to do at this point because I really need to use my laptop. Please give your suggestions.

I posted a similar question earlier and people referred me to the Yoga (much appreciated).  However, I was interested in the 2.6 lb carbon version with touch screen capabilities.  Asus has a Spin 7 model that is very good at 2.65lb, but I miss the red mouse toggle in the middle of the keyboard and Asus's track pad was designed too large....causing unintended tapping.  The Yoga, while nice, is heavier than I was looking for.  The 14 inch screen is about 3.3lb? the 12 inch at 3? I thought that some of the earlier Thinkpad Carbons had touch screen and was hoping they would make a return soon.  Thanks,

Just a guess, but I think your boot SSD is slow to respond to a power-up command.  I would try turning off fast startup (control panel/power/change what power buttons do)  I don't think it's likely to work, but it's free and easy.  If you can borrow another drive, try that.

A:When booting I get an Error 0210: Stuck Key 01 Lenovo Thinkpad

Hi Sukumar,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are getting stuck key error in your Lenovo ThinkPad.
 
Stuck key error means that one or more keys on the keyboard are stuck. It's possible that a liquid spill can also cause one or more keys to electrically "short" causing the error. Inspect the keyboard and check if any keys are mechanically stuck.
 
If you're mechanically handy you can remove the keyboard, inspect any chances of damage or corrosion. Plug it back and see if error is still occurring.
 
Reset BIOS to default settings. Perform Flee Power ? remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and turn ON the computer.
 
If none of the above said helped to resolve your concern, I strongly recommend you to contact our technical support for assistance.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.

My encrypted Thinkpad T470 (2yrs old) has suddenly begun "crashing" during use. This doesn't seem to be triggered by any particular programs or user behaviour that I can identify, and once it happens it will occur again relatively soon if I restart it without a long rest. What happens is that the screen goes black, and white boxes flicker in and out. Sometimes I see white lines near the top, which I associate with graphics card issues, but I've never seen this white boxes pattern before. The laptp will not project on an external monitor, so it's not just a display issue. It does not fully shut down when this happens, but rather requires a force quit in order to restart. It restarts normally until it crashes again. Any ideas on what is happening here? Am I on the right track to suspect graphics card issues? Thanks.

Hi Azadkv,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G500 Laptop is not booting to Windows and hanging at Lenovo Logo and the issue persists even after performing Flee-Power step. Hence, I suggest to perform BIOS reset and check if the issue persists. Below are the steps to perform BIOS reset:
 

To access BIOS menu turn OFF the Laptop and press the NOVO button located beside power button.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer will automatically restart.

Do post us back if the issue persists.
 
Best Regards

It looks to me like you have a faulty hardware issue or a serious driver issue. Try the Lenovo recovery to put the device back to the factory windows install. If that fails, I would think you have a hardware issue.

Hi Everyone! I have a Thinkpad Yoga 12 and recently I am experiencing a rather serious problem with the machine.If I have a drive in it, it will simply not start the booting process and will freeze on the "press enter to interrupt..." screen. Whenever I remove the disk (SSD) the computer starts and I can access BIOS/Diagnostics/Etc. but when reinserting the SSD everything stops and the computer freezes on start.This problem is very annoying because without a proper boot I cannot update the BIOS or do anything with it at all. Did anyone else experience something similiar?I checked the SSD in a different computer and it works without a problem.

A:Thinkpad Yoga stuck on boot screen

Hanging on startup with a disk inserted would most likely indicate either a bad SSD or a bad SATA control circuit (motherboard).  If the disk is OK, that leaves only one part.

I was working on my thinkpad L421 last night and it showed some error and stated your laptop needs to be restarted. I did not read the notification clearly. Since then the laptop whenever restarted shows blank screen. Pressing F8 or thinkvantage also did not help.After that I googled from my phone about the problem. I removed battery, pressed start key for a minute, waited for a minute, inserted the battery and restarted. It still showed blank screen. Now in the morning, after around 12 hours, I started the laptop and it showed thinkpad logo screen. The laptop was only on batteries. I was very glad but it did not move ahead even after waiting for 5-10 mins. Pressing blue thinkvantage did not help. I connected the laptop to power source and immediately the thinkpad screen went blank. Now even after performing all measures mentioned above, I cannot even see the thinkpad screen and the screen us blank like last night. Please help.
