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.)

Whenever I play a movie or a game, after about 20 mins or so the display stops working. On some occasions the computer will just shut off. I have ran a AIDA64 benchmark test on my machine with all hardware devices and the system performs well. (Test ran for 5 hours +) I also checked my cpu temperatures and when I do play a movie or game temps rise into the 75C + range. I have replaced my power supply with a(thermaltake 600w tr2) and even bought a ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB cooler to help but still no solution to my problem. I also tried putting in a pci-express video card and the problem still happens.

A:Computer display shuts off/computer shuts down. During video tasks.

75c isnt hot hot, but is a little hot for watching movies.

what cooler do you have on your cpu? and what are the idle temperatures?
also how long do they take to recover from the highest to the lowest temp?

this could be something as simple as poorly applied thermal compound.

im not saying it is over heating its just one possibility.
especially if youve a cpu with a built in apu and not a discreet gpu.

Unfortunately a friend's Yoga 900s display crashed. It is a QHD type. And, even more unfortunately, it seems there's currently no provider for Yoga 900s QHD displays. But the FHD display seems to be availabe. Does anybody know, if the FHD display will work in a Yoga 900s QHD model? Of course with reduced quality, but better than broken. ThanksMenner

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...

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>...

Hi, my Yoga 720 decided that it should shut down when in battery mode. According to the windows system logs Kernel-power had a critical error. I tried to update BIOS to the latest version, but that failed as during the installation it stated that the battery is missing.

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. Please help!

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.

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!

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.

But since yesterday, when I open it back up, it has shut down and has to start up from "off" vs sleep.

Can you try checking under

Click on change plan settings on your selected Power Plan
Click on change advanced settings

Now on this window look for Sleep and open it up.
Look for "Allow hybrid sleep"
Make sure that it is on and save changes
 
Check and let me know if that works.

I'd like a second opinion. A friend has a Dell Insp. 1000 notebook and the display shuts off at random. Usually shutting off after staying on no longer than a few minutes. When a system overheats I'm used to the entire computer shutting down instead of simply the monitor. I know it's the monitor because i can close the lid and reopen it and it would come back on. The reason I'm confused on this one is because i also noticed the fan isn't working. I went to blow the dusk out and hardly any come out which surprised me and that was when i noticed the fan not running. I'd let it sit with the computer running but the fan never turns on. The laptop doesn't feel hot and nor is it running all the time. Is the lack of a fan truly causing the monitor to shut off or is there the possibility of something inside sitting on the lid button??? Of course i know the fan not running isn't a good sign and I'm sure more problems will begin to arise after a while but right now I'm just wondering about the display.

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.

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?

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

Hello,
I am having an yoga 720 15 and i am having an problem with the sleeping mode. I have already change the settings of the screen into go sleeping mode after 20 minutes but my screen is going into sleeping mode( going black and need to fill in password) after only a few minutes, by not using the laptop. i have already installed the latest windows updates. Is it having something to do with the biosupdate i did to reduce the fan noise?  bios version 4MCN25WW

I'm using a Dell U3415W monitor. My video card is AMD Radeon RX480. The monitor is connected via DisplayPort to my computer. The monitor is connected via HDMI to my work laptop. When I want to switch over to HDMI, it acts as if I shut off the monitor on the Displayport shifting everything over to my secondary monitor. It causes no problem, but drives me nuts because when I switch back over to DIsplayPort, I have to move my open programs around again. Is there any simple way to make this stop? If I don't use DisplayPort, and instead use HDMI/DVI combination, the behavior described does not happen. I'm guessing that is just the way it is, but I'm hoping there is an easy way to make it stop.

The display on my one month old HP Pavilion dv7t Entertainment PC randomly turns off. All the power lights remain on and I can hear it running.
My graphic card is 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 4530.

Any advice for what I should be checking? Why this might be happening?

thank you,
Lori

A:Display randomly shuts off

Have you checked the power options in Control Panel? Change the plan settings to High performance. Then edit the plan settings and turn standby off.

Hi, this just started happening recently and I have no idea what causes it. Whenever the computer display shuts off to save power after 15-20 mins of idle time, the display would not turn back on again no matter what input is given. The only way to get out of it is a force shutdown. However, all the power / indicator lights are still on and the fans are still running.

This only happens when the system turns off it's own display as a power saving procedure, sleep mode and manually turning off the display do not result in a freeze.

A:Freezing when display shuts off?

Hi pjfadeqq,

Is this a laptop or PC? If it's a laptop, does external displays stop working aswell? Laptops usually has a function to rediscover/change monitors. Usually the FN-button + one of F-keys that has small monitors on them). Try pressing these when this happens.

The event viewer didn't help.

Any ideas what's causing this? Thanks in advance.

Please move if not in correct section, new here and wasn't sure where to post.

Alright so a few months back I built this custom computer.

Monitor: Asus PG279Q ROG Swift 27.0" 165Hz Monitor

Unfortunately my new work roster requires me to work 60-70 hours weekly so I barely get time to play this rig however lately I have noticed the rig acting strangely. Basically when the system is on, it decides to shut off display completely without warning. I have changed cables, switched between HDMI and DVI, different monitors, all the same result. My motherboard isn't shooting any error codes when this event happens so my google search wasn't the best. I assumed it was due to a faulty driver update with my graphics card. I have attempted to install previous versions with some luck. Currently Nvidia's latest drive is 375.57 ? October 20th. This version nearly triggers the event every 1-5 minut... Read more

A:PC Shuts Display Off Randomly

PC shuting down on itself whitout warning are USUALLY related to CPU-REACH-TEMPERATUR-LIMIT, Have you changed or checked your thermal PASTE recently? If you need help on how to do it, check out on youtube and BY experience the best way to apply thermal paste is with your fingers.
If you did and you think this might not be the problem, Check your Sata Cable, especially the power one.Click to expand...

I have multiple temp monitors active, none of which are overheating. The computer does not shut down itself, the screen just decides to turn off and say no input detected.

Hi All

My PC's display just went off while I was surfing the net...first I thought it was the screen, so I plugged in another screen, windows booted and same happened after a few minutes after startup...screen just goes off...Now to my knowledge it can be 2 things:

1. graphics card
2. RAM. Notes: I do not get any beep errors...

I would like to know, what are the best software available for testing RAM issues? Also, I am using AMI BIOS(american megatrends v7.4, 2009), how do I do the startup memory diagnostics? I know there is a keyboard shortcut for it...

Any other advice?

Also, I'm typing on the PC now that is giving me issues, don't know how long until display goes again...

Thank you
