 The base hinge plate cover is defective (part# 736475-001). I opened a case # [Personal Information Removed]
on March 10, 2017 after further research. The 17" touchsmart screen, while opening and closing, separated the hinge screws from the hinge screw inserts built into the base cover. There are over 800 hundred complaints online. The 17" touchsmart screen is not supported by proper hinge PSI in the base screw inserts. This product should be recalled.

I volunteered to help a friend upgrade the memory and SSD in their Yoga 460. I've worked on a lot of older ThinkPads, and the HMM made it look pretty easy. But when it says "pry" off the bottom cover, they are not kidding! Unfortunately I'd misplaced my spudgers, so I used an old credit card to help pry the cover off. In the process I broke one of the clips near the power connector. I think I pushed the credit card inward a little too hard. The machine went back together OK, but of course there is now a tiny gap where that clip isn't holding it. My friend treats computers fairly roughly and may not care, but it's bugging me a bit. I should have looked more closely before putting the machine back together, but now I don't remember whether the clip I broke off is part of the base cover or part of the piece it snaps onto (the keyboard bezel?). Would anyone happen to know? If the clip was part of the base cover it would be pretty easy to get a new one and replace it. Thanks!

Hello, I am a certified repair technician for a large company. I am also Lenovo certified through my company for warranty repairs. We have ran into an issue with a T450 laptop we have not seen before.  The system came in with a no POST issue. We unplugged the internal and external battery and did the reset by pressing and holding the power button and the small micro switch on the system board for 30 seconds. System would not POST so we ordered a new system board. The new board will NOT work with the bottom base cover installed. It will work with the base off, but as soon as it is put on again, the system does not POST. We then have to unplug both batteries and reset the board in order to even get it POST again (with or without batteries). It does work, with base installed, and no batteries plugged in. However, it also works with batteries installed, and no base cover.  What is causing this problem? We have tried other batteries and bases with no resolution.

I've had the Yoga 13 (1st generation) for a little more than a year now and the bottom cover of the laptop (with the 10 screws and the manufacturers stickers) has cracked right next to the hinge. The screw had fallen out and over time it eventually cracked. I replaced the screw so it's in place now, but I would like to replace the bottom panel. How would I go about removing it and replacing it? It seems to be attached to something and I don't want to just pry it open and break something. It's off warranty now too.  Thanks!

 I have had My Envy 17 for over a year now and from the last few weeks the bottom of the laptop is getting deatached from the laptop's body.I have never seen or experienced this kind of problem with any laptop. I take very good care of mine and I am surprise to see this happening to it. This is not the first problem I had with it. Just after I bought it the screen died and suport changed it for me cause the warranty was still on. I've seen posts of people having the same issue and it seems that this happens after the warranty is done. I think this should be a recall problem to be sloved by HP.If not at least some guidance should be given to us customers on how to fix it by ourselves. Everytime I open my laptop to use it I can see the gap becoming bigger, it can be fit back in place once the screen is closed, but is never 100% when the screen is open. I am worried about damage of the laptop components. Please help! Thanks

Hello everyone, hope we're all well! I'm hoping someone can help me! I recently got a HP Pavilion 15-aw065sa and I love it. I decided to upgrade the SSD, and sadly in doing so, have slightly cracked the underside plastic (about an inch along from the middle of the rear towards the centre of the case). It's not a biggie, but I'd really know if there is anywhere (be it HP or someone else) where I can PAY MONEY (to a limit, lets not go silly, it's just a piece of plastic) to get a replacement. I'm also looking at getting an optical HDD caddy, so a DVD drive front replacement would be useful too! If anyone can help please let me know, it's a great laptop! EDIT: Should mention I checked the part surfer, as well as ebay, and sadly can't find anything

I can disable it by fully disabling tamper detection in the BIOS or removing the Supervisor password.

You just need to remove all the screws in the base, then wedge the cover off.

But you may want to get an ASP to do it since this may void the warranty, or something may break.

Well, after weeks of trouble with detection error on my brand new Yoga X1 3rd Gen. laptop and after a miraculously fix by chance by my local technician, I'm once again faced with an error before I can even boot up Windows. Are all Lenovo Thinkpads horrendously faulty or is just my device partially prone to errors? I checked the bio and this detection isn't even enabled so I'm puzzled as to why I must face this error everytime I attempt to boot up the device. Is there a way to fix this error or to reset it? Of course I've tampered the bottom to fix an error that was caused by loose screws. Now I have to deal with another obvious irritatable error without finding an explanation online. The few information even containing the tamper error on the manual for the device shows no hint in solving this issue. Lenovo support is testing my patience during an already hectic time in my life.

Hi there, I am new to the Forum. I hope you can help me.The original Windows was 8 upgraded to 10.I replaced the bottom cover. The Notebook was working fine before. In the proses I disconnected the CMOSS battery, HD, DVD, WiFi adapter, etc. I have done this before many times.Before assembling all back, as I usually do, I performed a quick test. I connected the LCD, memory, CMOSS battery, on/off button board, keyboard and DC charger.When I pressed the on/off button the led on the on/off board turned on, the CPU fan turned on, the HP logo on the back of the LCD turned on, the LCD screen stays black and the caps lock led start blinking once every 2 or 3 seconds.Because this Notebook was Windows 8 and use UEFI I decided to finish the assembling and try again. It responded the same as before.I can?t believe that the MB is bad; it was OK before replacing the bottom cover. Probably something to do with the UEFI/Windows 10 combination??????What I have tried?1-Hard Reset: no battery, no DC charger and pressing on/off button for 15 seconds.2-Disconected the CMOSS battery for several hours.3-Turning on and hitting the Esc, F12,F11,F10? button many times (all the F buttons).

Hi all,
Unfortunately in the process of adding more ram to my dell laptop I managed to break a couple of the hinges on the base cover and lose the metal cylinder which surrounds the single captive screw.
The bottom of my laptop practically threatens to fall off now and the screw is constantly falling out. No amount of twisting secures the screw, which also makes me fear that I may have damaged something.
Any suggestions?

I didn't really notice this problem until a few months after having this computer. I have been making bi-weekly payments on this wonderful laptop since fall of last year through a local Circuit World. I soon started to notice that even if I opened the laptop slowly or gently, there was this awful cracking noise coming from the computer. I had gotten used to it and assumed it was a minor thing, as I have experienced with other laptops in the past. It wasn't until I had run my hand over the left corner of the laptop that I noticed that the bottom cover had been starting to "pop out" or at least not connect itself correctly to the top cover as the right side did.  I have never once damaged this laptop via tossing, dropping or rough handling. This computer is very expensive and takes a lot from my budget, so I have made sure to take the most absolute delicate care of this computer, including handling and virus protection. Unfortunately, with this computer now being excessively harder to open than it should, and the damage that I'm afraid this left hinge is causing, it has become more than just a "little" problem to me, and I fear that it will only worsen over time.

My Hp has some problems with the bottom cover that pops open every time I open up my notebook. My Laptop has always been in a good condition, it never fell and I hardly travel with it.

I searched the forum, and found at least 20 pages of Hp-costumers with my same problem. link.I really what this problem to be fixed. It one of your most expensive notebooks. So Its realy sad for me that I bought an expensive product with a design-production flaw. I really hope you can help to solve this issue. I really need my laptop to continue working on it. The problem can only get worse. Please help me fast. Thanks in advance. Kind regards Dylan
