One of our new Lenovo desktops (710 25ISH Desktop) threw this error when running the hardware scan.Result Code: WMB01A008-WM7CWJDevice: Motherboard I was not able to find much info about this error code online. So I was wondering if I should get this looked at or repaired.

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.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

Although the hardware scan is a useful tool, most error codes can only be deciphered by Lenovo Support. I would recommend that you contact Lenovo Support about the issue. Please call Lenovo at the number below or visit a local Best Buy store. Most stores are also authorized Lenovo service centers.

Hello: I replaced my K450e with above model.  Because I had motherboard issues with a 700 25ISH just prior to this one, I ran the test out of concern.  It failed, specifically with the USB.  The error detail stated "overcurrent detected."  What does this mean?  I have no USB devices on the machine, unless you count the keyboard and mouse. Does someone in the community have any thoughts on this?  Thanks! tNtftb

I've been having a constant issue since I got this desktop with a popup message saying that a USB device needs more power than the port can supply. The only USB devices I use are a mouse, keyboard and an external hard drive and it seems to happen at random. I've run hardware scans and each time the results show a failure with the motherboard USB test. If anyone has advice about this issue it would be very appreciated. (I am using my old keyboard because I don't care for the one that came with the desktop, so I don't know if that could be the problem or not.)

Hello I'm new to the forums, but any how my computer did a hardware scan and the only failure was the motherboard's usb test. I tried http://www.lenovo.com/eticket but It kept taking me to the main page. The result code is WMB01A008-WM7XUJ. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me fix this issue or just give me a solution that works.
Thank you for your time.

I ran the hardware test this morning and everything passed but the SMART short self test. It failed and gave me this code. WHD01V00G-BK7W0J It says to send to Lenovo but I don't know where. I also can't add my laptop to my products on my account. I keep getting a message #WL Service Busy #   What do I do?

hi Smurfette,
Welcome to the Forums.
The image below is the breakdown on how the LSC error codes mean.
  - Link to picture
The SMART short self-test that failed may have detected some certain sectors on the drive that are bad and predicted an imminent HDD failure so I would recommend you contact the lenovo helpdesk and report your findings as you likely need to send the unit for service.

So as the title suggests , my computer shuts down instantly and wont open up for a while. I used lenovo solution center to see if this was a hardware issue and it gave me a failed marker on motherboard usb section. W1HQQVPQ2-2JNQ11 was the report code. I am not entirely sure about what to do right now. Should I send it service or is this really not relevant to my problem? Will appreciate any advice to be honest, thanks in advance.

I just bought a 700 25ISH 90ED desktop and I am trying to use my television as the monitor. The TV is brand new, only two months old. I am attempting to connect them via HDMI cord but no signal is coming through. I tried connecting my laptop to the TV using the same cord and it works fine so the TV, and the cable are obviously functional. But the Lenovo desktop will not come through, all I get is a no signal message on my TV. I thought that the HDMI port on the desktop was damaged or not functional so I took it back to Best Buy and exchanged it for an identical model. But the same issue is happening. I ran through all the basic checks, everything is plugged in and on the right TV input setting, tried using all of the HDMI ports on the TV (which all work with other devices), tried swapping around the cord ends, and the computer is plugged in.

A:Lenovo Desktop 700 25ISH to TV via HDMI No Signal

Hi samwhys , 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Based on what you have described , cord and monitor all ok with the HDMI connected with your laptop. 
Back on the 700 25ISH rear ports, would you have an additional graphics card installed as on the image ?
Will it say no image even when connected on the bottom HDMI port? What is the machine number for the PC?

Do you have a different HDMI cable available to test also ?
Update us how it goes?

I just purchased this computer 13 days ago and it has been nothing but problems since day 1. No matter what i do, no matter what software im trying to use this thing crashes all the way to restarting the computer constantly. I have litterally spent more time in online chat with tech support for different software and even microsoft trying to figure this thing out. I am about at the end of my last nerve with this thing. It even crashes when all im doing is playing the dang solitaire game that comes with windows!! And thats before loading any other software on it. I was wondering if anyone might have any advice for anything i havent tried. I have done a complete reinstall of windows and all software. Checked for virus malware adware had the hardware checked everything i can think of. No matter what i seem to do the **bleep** thing keeps crashing and restarting. Microsoft tech support has tried everything they know on multiple occasions. Windows and all drivers are up to date and still no joy. This is the first Lenovo i have ever purchased and the reason being because i had seen alot of very exceptional reviews. But to be totally honest im starting to wish i had not purchased it.

HI Techies,

This is my first post here. I am doing my first MOBO build and am having some issues. Here are my specs:

PC Chips A13G+ Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 2.0GhZ
200 GB SATA Hard drive
80 GB SATA Hard drive

Now when I first turned on the computer I got the following error. I have seen posts with this error before and I tried some of the things but they didn't work for me. The only thing I didn't try is replacing the Lithium battery, which I will do tomorrow. But in the mean time the error I got was the following:

PXE - E61: Media Test Failure, check cable

Now here is what I have tried so far:

- Reset CMOS (by placing the jumper in the CLR_CMOS mode for about 30 secs)
- Unplugged Video card, HDD cables
- Switched RAM around
- tried booting a Win XP cd
- taking out the lithium battery and placing it in again.

I would appreciate any help from you guys.

Thanks in advance.

A:Media Test Failure, check cable, disk boot failure

Make sure your BIOS is set to boot from your optical drive first.

Or you have a SATA hard drive and controller and are trying to boot from an unpartitioned drive on a controller that you haven't provided a driver for.

I've read a few threads here on these forums and have found a few similar situations but nothing that really matches what i'm dealing with. Here goes:

I was playing a game when my PC made a short strange muffled hissing noise and then popped. The PC completley shut down like someone has pulled the plug. Almost right away it smelled like an electrical fire. I figured this was the power supply (NZXT 550W) since it is around 4 years old and has been through a lot.

The following day I went to best buy and picked up a Thermaltake TR2 600W PSU and installed it. After plugging in the main power cord from the wall outlet I switched on the PSU itself. Inside, the SB PWR light on the MB lit up. I thought this was good news. I hit the power button for the whole system and
the CPU fan moved slightly and the front LED light quickly flashed on and off. Then nothing. I checked to make sure all connections were snug. Same result.

I can't remember why but I unplugged the 4-pin Auxillary... Read more

Heres the basics: I had my digital camera connected to my computer via usb. Through an unfortunate series of events, my computer was on standbye and the camera got unplugged without telling the computer to disconnect it first. The computer told me a file was corrupt then shut off, and it won't start anymore. When I turn it on, the harddrives start working, but my master cd drive starts clicking. Neither cd drive works at all. I tried removing all the RAM and starting the computer to listen for beeps, but I heard none. From what i've read so far, that indicates a motherboard failure, but the no output points to a video card failure. I'm not sure what steps to take next, so any help will be very appreciated.

A:Motherboard failure or video card failure?

What you can do is plug out everything just leaving you Ram, MB ,processor display card, power supply and turn on the machine once done and evrything runs smoothly and disply is shown than its none of the above device problem if there was a problem in that stage than you can narrow down try interchanging the ram module into different sockets. If you have another diaply card you can try that too. IF that worked try hooking up all devices one by one .See which one gives you problem.

I am experiencing a rebooting problem with a P III 450 System. So far I have replaced the ram, the motherboard (Abit BE 6 II), the power supply, the cpu, I have add a UPS and reinstall the win98 OS. I run Micro Scope and it indicated that I have a RTC RAM TEST FAILURE 32 00 20. Number one does RTC = Real Time Clock and two if so how do I correct a Real Time Clock failure, three are there any other things that I should check out.

A:RTC Ram TEST Failure 32 00 20

Well Real Time Clock is part of the motherboard. You said you already replaced that.

Since it says RTC RAM... I am guessing that it means it had trouble with a timing test loop in the RAM chips. But you said you replaced the RAM too.

So, personally, I would ignore that error and assume that the error is due to the program not working correctly on your system.

Try this one: http://www.simmtester.com/PAGE/products/doc/docinfo.asp

It's free and works very well. Let it run overnight - if there are no fails, and the machine doesn't reboot, I would say the RAM and power supply are ok.

What are these rebooting issues anyway? How often? What OS?

I have two motherboards. Both worked just fine in the past. Recently installed the ASUS M4A79 Deluxe with an AMD Quad-Core (probably a 1st generation AMD - 2nd generation corrected lots of problems as you know).

No beeps - just fans and motherboard lights. Classic case of motherboard and/or CPU being defective.

Removed the AMD Quad-Core and saw 2-3 pins were seriously bent. I do not know if they were bent when I inserted the chip into the socket. (I'm so farsighted it's ridiculous,
so I didn't notice them being bent - though of course I did check).

Question: Can I test the motherboard by just powering it up without the CPU? Any other ways to test this ASUS and my Gigabyte boards without going through the whole CPU, thermal paste, heatsink procedure.

Footnote: I hope you guys fully appreciate just how important I am to this esteemed forum.
I mean, without me and my dumbo questions, you guys would have no fun at all in your oh-so-sad lives.

A:How to Test Motherboard

No, I believe the motherboard is just a dumb slab without the processor. It will light up, but it won't beep, or give any diagnostic codes, or anything.

Yesterday, I ran CC Cleaner, and chose the "Wipe Free Space" option.  It ran for about 2 hours, and wasn't anywhere nearing completion.  I stopped it.  My computer restarted and I received a black screen that says "PXE-E61 Media Test Failure" and "PXE-MOF Exiting PXE ROM"
Now, one of the odd things, is that, if I turn my comptuer off (using power button) and it asks if I want to boot in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, or Start Windows Normally, I can choose Start Windows Normally, and Windows loads fine and everything, and I am able to use my computer.  But if I shut it down or restart the proper way, that is when I get the black screen with those messages.

I have recently installed xp after my system crashed. I found one of RAM cards to be faulty. I reinstalled XP but have my system restarts every so often, more so when I am installing applications but sometimes just randomly.

Is there anything I can do to test motherboard/processor - I have ran a RAM test and it had no problems for the remaining memory card

However, I noticed that if I were to put the RAM into one of the other two slots - the computer will not start up at all.

I'm pretty sure this is hardware related - because of new xp install, but any suggestions to confirm?

Everything passed except the usual DVD-RW Drive tests which have always been unsupported, and the RTC Accuracy Test failed. It had also failed the week before as well. The error code I get is WSB01-HFZ I looked online a lot and couldn't find much except that this could mean the CMOS battery is dying or there's something wrong with the motherboard?

A:RTC accuracy test failure

I would imagine that Test is not to reliable ... Read the Link below ...

No way to know for sure, but I would think its the hard drive. You may want to take out your hard drive and test in another computer.

Getting media test failure, check cable error when computer boots.

Hi im having some problems with my comp. Just the other day when the computer started to boot it says:

PXE-e1: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting NVIDIA Boot Agent.

Ive been looking around on forums (including this) and many of the replies is telling you to go to the BIOS. Problem is when i start the computer i cant enter by pressing F2 (which i think is right). It says Booting from CD:
It enters NVIDIA Boot Agent then the error message occurs.

Ive tried to disable cables and attaching them again but it does not work.
(im using Vista btw)
Would like all the help i can get!
And remember im a newbie when it comes to these sorts of things!

A:Media test failure

On an nvidia board,it is probably the del key to enter the bios.
Check that first boot device is set to the hard drive.
You are getting that message because it is not finding the
hard drive and trying to boot to other devices.
PXE is network boot.
Either the settings are wrong or the hard drive has failed.

Hi. I gave my sisiter a refurbished Gateway 500S for Christmas. I checked it out before hand and everything was running just fine. She just called me and told me when she got it home and plugged it in and went to boot up she is getting an error message that says media test failure check cable. I told her to open it up and check to see if all the cables were pushed in tightly. She said they are. Any suggestions?

A:Media Test Failure

A loose cable does seem to be high on the list especially since the computer was moved. Have her recheck the data cable from the MB to the HD.

Go into BIOS and check the boot settings. Did you leave anything in the CD or floppy drive (if there is one)?

Hi.  I have a HP Pavilion ze4900 (Windows XP).  I keep getting the following error when I boot up:PXE:  Media Test FailurePXE:  M0F: Exiting PXE ROM It loops on and won't boot up.  I did some research online and found that I should go into the BIOS and redo the boot order.  I did that, and selected "Hard Drive" as the first option.  However, I'm still getting this error message. I'm not a techie, but I would appreciate any/all advice so I can get my computer  back up and running. Thanks in advance!

A:PXE: Media Test Failure

Hi: If you have a hard drive diagnostics utility in your BIOS, I recommend you run it. Getting that failure notice can indicate there is a failed hard drive. What is happening is your PC is looking for a device to boot from, and can't find any. The PXE was the last attempt--booting from a network source. Paul

First, can you see anything... that allows you to remove and reinstall the driver as a first step... Looks as if you have a part to replace, if the configuration allows it... otherwise, is it under warrnty still?
