Yoga 710 shuts down when plugin a device on always on USB

Q: Yoga 710 shuts down when plugin a device on always on USB

Hi there, I'm experimenting some troubles when I plug an Ethernet adapter (TECKNET HU043-V3) on the "always on" USB port, the laptop shuts down inmediatly (seems like a power supply issue). Is anybody getting this kind of issues? If I plug the same adapter into the other usb port, it works fine. I tried also to plug the same adapter in other computers and nothing happened. Thanks in advance!!

Hey @PROINDIA,  Welcome to the HP Support Forums! You had mentioned that you are having an issue with the backlight when you plug in a USB device or play a video on  your HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC. You also mentioned that you had contacted the Customer Care Center.  Was it the HP System Recovery that you had done?Did anything change between when the display was working and when the display went dim again?Have you connected the Notebook to an external monitor or TV?Have you tried to see if it happens while you are in Safe Mode?Have you done your Windows updates?Have you tried to do a System Restore back to when it was working fine?Have you gone to your Power Options, Advanced settings and changed the USB settings?Have you done any of your HP Support Assistant Updates? Here is a link to the HP Support Assistant if you need it. Just download and run the application and it will help with the software and drivers on your system that need updating. In some cases, a dim display might be caused by an outdated BIOS or graphics driver.  If you would like to provide me with your Model Number (How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number?), I can look at the Software and Driver's page for you and see if there are updated drivers available.  If you require further assistance, I would be more than happy to help!

I've had this happen a few times and only when I least expect it.  I thought that perhaps it didn't like me disconnecting devices after shutdown but after several rounds of testing, I think the problem is closing the lid (which is set to sleep) but not always. Is anyone else finding that sometimes when the computer should sleep that it's shut down completely, without hibernating, thus resulting in a cold boot the next time it's started up? Each time it's happened, I've found the following event in the event log at the same time that I expected the computer to sleep, so I know that it's not a case of an attempt at hibernation that failed. Log Name:      SystemSource:        EventLogDate:          5/22/2017 5:11:59 PMEvent ID:      6008Task Category: NoneLevel:         ErrorKeywords:      ClassicUser:          N/AComputer:      FennelDescription:The previous system shutdown at 3:01:37 PM on ?5/?22/?2017 was unexpected.Event Xml:<Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">  <System>    <Provider Name="EventLog" />    <EventID Qualifiers="32768">6008</EventID>    <Level>2</Level>...

Just got a brand new Yoga 710 w/ Win 10 Pro and the system just shuts down when put to sleep.Happens when:- I close the lid (even if "close lid" power option is set to sleep), or- I select the "Sleep" option from the Start [equivalent] menu, the system immediately shuts down (within seconds),- Leave the system idle for 5 min (what sleep timeout is set) And since it shuts down:- I lose any open document, applications running, etc. Also, on restart, Windows occasionally will also complain that it wasn't shutdown properly, starts to scan disk, etc. This is really BAD!- Pressing the mouse or keyboard doesn't do anything and only pressing the power button will get it working again (and I see the Lenovo BIOS logo, etc.).It feels like the OS is trying to go to sleep, but the laptop is shutting down instead. I tried calling Lenovo customer service but the response was really really unacceptable:- First tried to disable sleep completely and saying that that since this is a new machine so that should be okay.- I asked what about battery life if I don't use the laptop (say overnight) for a while -- response was I should shutdown the laptop. I checked the power option, tried disabling hibernate, disable fast boot, etc. and other suggestions from searching the forum but nothing worked.   Also checked BIOS settings but there's not much that can be changed (which is rather surprising).Drivers are BIOS are up-to-date. Any other ideas?  Any one else seeing this i...

Hi, 2+ year old Yoga 900 is perfect, except for a recent problem that I just started experiencing a few months ago. Randomly, during the start-up, it will just shut down. This goes on for several hours where when I push the power button, the screen and keyboard backlight will turn on, the black screen with the white Lenovo text is displayed for serveral seconds, then the screen suddenly turns black and the computer turns off. I can keep turning it on and it will keep doing the same thing over and over. I have to let it sit for several hours before I come back to the computer and it "fixes itself". I can't make any corrolation to why or when this problem starts happening, or when it "fixes itself" (as in, it doesn't matter if it's plugged in or or not, or what the charge level is, etc.). I already had my battery replaced once, and I have no idea what might cause this. The computer has never been dropped, and I don't think its a power supply/battery connection internal issue becasue I can leave the computer sitting on my desk and it will start having this problem and "fix itself" without me moving the computer.

I've always used sleep mode at night and quite frankly most of the time instead of shutting down my yoga. I know thats not good after reading some here but wanted to share history in case that has something to do with problem.Typically at night or when leaving office or just going to be off computer for a while I'll close the lid (which is set for sleep mode) and when I return I open it up, enter my password and I'm right where i left off. I have multiple spreadsheets or power points open so it's easier than shutting those down every time or even at night. But since yesterday, when I open it back up, it has shut down and has to start up from "off" vs sleep. All things open have to be recovered (xls, docs, ppt, etc) and chrome says it has shut down unexpectedly and asks if I want to restore tabs, etc.What is causing this change and how can I troubleshoot it and fix it?Help much appreciated.

Now on this window look for Sleep and open it up.

I'll try and explain this one best i can. User came to me with their Yoga 15 with an issue where it randomly shuts down on battery power, as in completely switches off.  It sometimes displays a message to say the battery cannot be detected, other times just shuts down. The conclusion I've found is that when the bottom panel is off the machine the battery is completely detected in Windows, and the Lenovo Settings app. It runs fine, never cuts off even with lots of IE instances open.As soon as I put the bottom panel back on the battery appears to be disconnected in Windows, and it also shows it not charging. Intermittently it also states the battery power is low or not detected when booting up. Found that there's a battery / system reset button on the underside that may be the cause of the issue. Pressing this button with the underside of the Laptop off resets the machine entirely, I believe it's the battery reset button incase the machine ever gets stuck at any point (as by rights it's a non-removable battery and there's a small pin hole on the case over this button). Works flawlessly without the bottom case in place, as soon as I re-connect it when the unit is on Battery power I loose the battery status in the Lenovo Settings app. The machine will then randomly shut down. Any thoughts on this one, it's the strangest thing. Many thanks all.

A:Lenovo Yoga 15 - shuts down on battery

When you put the panel back, is it touching/blocking any wires?
Have you tried to do a factory reset? If everything works fine then, try updating drivers one by one to see if it comes back.

Recently my Lenovo Yoga 720 15-IKB has started shutting down after a few minutes when on battery. It's fine when I use it plugged in. But once I unplug it and it's using battery (even when fully charged), it will consistently turn off after a few minutes. Nothing has changed that I know of since this started happening. It just seemed to start doing it one day. It hasn't been dropped or anything, it hasn't even left the house. I read around a bit and saw the recommendation to update the BIOS. So I've attempted to update the BIOS via the official Lenovo support page but run into an issue and it can't complete. It has me download 4mcn33ww.exe and kicks off Insyde H20FFT (Flash Firmware Tool). The process appears to run as expected until it turns off the laptop to restart and once it boots back up with the screen black, a red message states "Warning: No Battery Connected, This process requires AC power and a charged battery to avoid accidental power-off during an update". I attached a photo of what I see. I, of course, have the laptop plugged in during this process so I'm not sure why it says that. And prior to starting the BIOS update, Windows states the laptop is, in fact, charging/plugged in.  At this point I'm stuck. The only potential fix I've found online is to update the BIOS, but I can't update the BIOS due to the AC power error it seems. Any ideas? Thanks!

Thank you for following this thread. I have recently recieved a refurbished X1 Yoga which has run extremely well until three days ago. When I first recieved the laptop I noticed only that the battery charged light and the screen notification were not aligned. The light next to the charger would indicate it was charged long before the screen would agree. This wasn't that big of a deal, but it may have led to my next issue. Three days ago the touchscreen and mouse started to malfunction. On the right side of the screen there was the mouse and three circles frozen, but I could still use the mouse through intuition and some guesswork. The visible point of the mouse would flicker back and fourth between where it actually was and the right side of the screen. Later that evening I closed the laptop and it died. I tried to charge the laptop, but no matter how long it was charged or how long I held the power button nothing happened. Essentially, it became a very expensive brick. Yesterday I charged the laptop again just out of desperation and it came to life. It made a sound like a dial-up and just turned on as if nothing happened. Everything seemed to be all right until it crashed again, and now is currently dead. Any suggestions? The laptop is still under warranty since I got it about three weeks ago, I just can't turn it on to use Lenovo Support.

Seeing as your machine appears to have suffered hardware failure, I would phone for support. If the International Warranty Tool on support.lenovo.com is correct, you should call 1-800-426-7378 in the United States.

Hi Ogata

Can you describe it more?

What errors do you get, what do you see, what do you hear in connection with the system hardware?
Any changes you've made to the system.. hardware or software lately?
Has it ever been working stable?
Do you get a blue screen?
What do you be doing while it shuts down ie. playing games?
Your PSU is underpowered aswell. Can your download Sensors View please and let us know the voltages/temperatures your getting.

Anything of more information would help here describing what you be doing when it shuts. I mean, if you don't play any games/video/media/imaging software, just have Windows Explorer running, does it shut down?

My Yoga 11s shuts down without any warning when it's plugged in. It may operate for a few or several minutes but will always eventually shut off--completely, almost violently and requires a reboot. This issue only occurs when plugged in. No problems with sudden shut down when running on battery power. The battery fully charges without issue when closed and not in use. I have been just making sure I keep it charged and use it unplugged. However use often extends beyond the battery life. The random and persistent shut off has become extremely frustrating.  What is the problem? Any solutions or ideas?

When shutting down the laptop after a few hours of use, the OS (win10 x64) will shutdown normally, but the red led on the thinkpad logo will remain on. (same whether im on battery, on plugged in). I noticed this issue after finding out my fully charged battery was completely empty when I tried turning it on. However, when I only use the laptop for at most an hour or less and shut down, It will be fine and everything will be powered off. This problem only occurs during long hours of use and then I would have to hold the power button to completely shutdown. What I have tried so far:Disabling Hibernate, SleepUpdated Bios to GQET47WW (1.27) 9/23/2015Disabled Fast Startup* *What I have noticed after disabling fast startup was that before, it would usually blink red until the battery is completely discharged. After disabling fast startup, the problem still occurs but instead the LED is a solid RED until the battery is discharged. Are there any other options I can use to fix this?

Try with resetting the system from Emergency reset hole, which will be at the bottom of the laptop.

When shutting down the laptop after a few hours of use, the OS (win10 x64) will shutdown normally, but the red led on the thinkpad logo will remain on. (same whether im on battery, on plugged in). I noticed this issue after finding out my fully charged battery was completely empty when I tried turning it on. However, when I only use the laptop for at most an hour or less and shut down, It will be fine and everything will be powered off. This problem only occurs during long hours of use and then I would have to hold the power button to completely shutdown. What I have tried so far:Disabling Hibernate, SleepUpdated Bios to GQET47WW (1.27) 9/23/2015Disabled Fast Startup* *What I have noticed after disabling fast startup was that before, it would usually blink red until the battery is completely discharged. After disabling fast startup, the problem still occurs but instead the LED is a solid RED until the battery is discharged. Are there any other options I can use to fix this?

My Yoga Ideapad 13 often freezes (no warning or indication) and then will shut down after about five minutes.  There's no frequency or activity pattern that I can work out, sometimes it happens soon after I start up the notebook and at other times I can be working for days without incident, and I don't think it's related to overheating or processor demand either. I have tried all the updates I can find but still have this problem.  It seems to happen more when I am connected to my docking port, but that may be just coincidence as I use it more than just the notebook on its own. Although I have my Office Apps autosave set for 1 minute I still lose work, or have to waste time recovering the data back to the working file.

Hi there
I have a Yoga 14" Ultrabook and it will shut itself off when you move it also (with lid open) hold it near the thinkpad logo on the right side.
 
I have taken the keyboad and bottom off and could not find any loose connections or damage. 
 
Any ideas? Been searching internet with no luck. is it a SSD thing maybe it thinks it's being dropped?
 
Any help would be great 
thanks

Lenovo ThinkPads has a feature where it would turn off the hard drive when it detects it's being dropped. But I don't think that's present on SSDs because they don't rely on mechanical platers. I'd suggest getting the unit repaired with Lenovo. Visit http://support.lenovo.com

When I remove my memory cards from the USB device, the computer shuts down in an orderly manner, as if I'd selected Shut Down from the start menu! It does not happen every time, but it is a pissoff when I'm working on something to have the computer shut itself down just because I removed a device. Also, it doesn't happen every single time.

I've looked around for answers on this and haven't gotten anything other than a mention to update my usb drivers, but i cant seem to find an individual usb driver package at all.

What can I do about this? It's too much.
 

A:Computer shuts down when I remove USB device!

I assume those memory cards appear in Windows as removable media (with drive letters assigned?)

Use the Safely Remove Hardware icon in your notification tray to notify Windows to stop all I/O to those "logical drives" (the memory cards) before you remove them
