Lenovo 3000 N100 Fan Runs 2 seconds

Q: Lenovo 3000 N100 Fan Runs 2 seconds

Greetings, This isa free laptop, Lenovo 3000 N100. I bought a power supply for it. It was running a Non-Genuine version of Windows 7 so I formatted and installed Puppy Linux. Problem: The fan runs for a couple of seconds during bootup, then no more. The laptop will shutdown randomly, I assume from overheating but I don't know that. The battery is dead so I pulled it out and am running straight off the power supply. I pulled the fan out and taped (3) 1.5V batteries together, hooked some leads to them and found that the fan runs fine and continuously. I cleaned out all dust found in the air vent. This has not fixed the problem. Something is telling the fan to shut off. Don't know if this is a motherboard problem or what? It is so far a free computer aside from the power supply. Any ideas? Thanks,Doug

I recommend downloading and running Outlook PST Repair. It's a PST repair tool that I've used it in the past to recover emails, contacts, tasks and notes from corrupt Outlook files that are damaged or inaccessible. Supports Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/1bjhSi. (This link will automatically start a download of Outlook PST Repair that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

The fan problem maybe why the computer was free especially if you dumpster dived it.

With the fan wired to the batteries does the computer still shut down randomly? You could also see if Linux has any apps or software for temperature monitoring to confirm overheating. If overheating is an issue you should probably renew the thermal paste and see that the heat sink is securely mounted. Either of those can lead to high temperatures. If overheating is not an issue it just might be that the computer isn't getting hot enough for the fan to kick in for additional cooling.

Hello.I have a ( now ) ancient Lenovo 3000 N100.I don't like throwing things away and if I can get it restarted I would be pleased. Basically, it won't boot up.   I get a message: STOP: 0x000000ED (0x89B16858,0xC0000006,0x00000000,0x0000000000 ) Is there any SIMPLE way to just go to a factory reset ? .   I see posts saying 'press the Lenovo care button'  but where is that ?  what does it look like ?Others say stick a pin in a hole   ~but I cannot see any pin stickable hole anywhere ...... So what to do ?  I doubt if it is worth spending money on.

Can someone help me solve these problems, especially the usb. I been using alot of flash cards and i can't connect them to transfer files.....
 

A:Nothing but problems with Lenovo n100 3000

You should go to the Lenovo Driver Matrix, to download and install all drivers listed, using the text explanations exactly.
When done properly, your Lenovo 0768-A49 will work just fine.
As a shortcut, you can install the Systems update 3.14 by your model:
· H100
· J100
· J105
· J110
· J115
· J200
· J200p
· J205
· K100
· Q100
· S200
· S205
. C200
· N100
· N200
· V100
· V200
· Y100
Or you can connect to the Lenovo site and let their system tell you what you need and install it for you.
Basically, you need the Chipset most importantly, being sure your BIOS is up to date.
The Matrix will show you exactly what you need... it can be as many as 35 download installs, depending on your exact model.
Or you can buy the Lenovo WXP Professional disk set by telephone for less than $50 including shipping.

Hi.I've got some problems with my computer. 1. Due to some unexplainable reason, whenever I type something on the keyboard, all my USB ports stop working for the time I'm typing. When I stop typing it takes a few seconds to recognize the USB device currently attached and it starts working again.  2. Another problem is with my sound driver. It's kind of messed up. I can't hear any sounds from the speakers unless I've plugged in headphones. And while they're plugged in I can hear sound from both, the speakers and the headphones. At the moment I've disabled front panel jack detection and I can hear sound from the speakers without having to plug anything in, although when I do, I don't hear sound from the headphones, but still from the speakers. 3. I haven't been able to find any working drivers for my SD card reader. 4. The driver for the fingerprint reader does not work. The device manager shows that I have AuthenTec AES2501A installed but when going to Biometric devices in the control panel, it says that Windows didn't find any biometric devices. 5. I've been unable to get my bluetooth device to work. I've tried adding a new device and it can't find any, even when I have several working near the comupter.

Hi everyone,

I have recently acquired a Lenovo 3000 N100 768-BXG and like many people with the N100 have massive USB problems.

Now I have read up and discovered that this is a problem with the BIOS which seems to affect all the available BIOS except the 1.08 version for machines preloaded with Vista - well I have the 2.06 BIOS for machines preloaded for XP.

I have read that I can flash the BIOS to an earlier version designed for the C200 (specifically that contained in the 63af02us.exe update, DL20102A.WPH) which is I think the 1.02 BIOS - then I can reboot and it will then allow me to flash to the fixed (ie: USB working properly!) 1.08 BIOS.

Now for the meat of the question: I have installed Win7 on the laptop as it came with no HDD thus no recovery partition etc. Do I have to wipe this install and install WinXP Pro in order to perform the BIOS flash? Can it be done from Win7 safely or at all?

I have never flashed any BIOS except my router although I am fairly confident that I have read and understood everything required. My problem is that I don't really understand the detail of BIOS and am only able to post this due to scouring other people's posts on this and other forums.

Can anyone out there confirm that I have the process correct, and answer my questions?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me

A:Help resolving USB problem with Lenovo 3000 N100?

If there is a downloadable Windows based bios flashing utility from Lenovo for your model laptop you should be able to use it to flash the bios without much trouble, regardless of the Windows version installed. Don't worry about having no battery installed. Bios flashing should never be done on battery power alone. If the laptop can boot from the CD/DVD you could flash the bios using a CD/DVD image. You will also have an option to back up the current bios to a file. If the bios flashing fails, the laptop may be rendered useless, so no recovery can be attempted

I have a IBM Lenovo N100 3000 laptop that keeps shutting down at random, it doesnt matter what you do it shuts off when it feels like, what i notice is if it is off for a while it will stay on longer before the first shutdown but once the first shutdown occurs it just keep on doing so as soon as around 5 minutes after bootup.
I thought it was having a heat issue so I opened the section where the fan and processor heatsink is and cooled it manually with an external fan, i actually had my hand on the processor heatsink one of the time when it shut down and it was extremely cool.
I reformatted my hard drive and installed a fresh copy of windows...same problem
I went into BIOS and left it there to see what happen...it shut right off just the same!!!
(I also noticed in the BIOS there is no power management nor temperature readings even though I have ruled out overheating previously I would have loved to see these settings)
so now i'm down to definitely a hardware issue!!
I replaced my memory to see if that was the culprit.....it shuts down just the same!

oops my battery is no good so I wondered if that was the influence so I removed the battery completely and booted it on just AC power...it shuts down just the same!
Could you experts please kindly advice me of what other possible hardware could be causing this problem?
I have tried my best, I really dont know what else to do.
 

A:IBM Lenovo N100 3000 laptop that keeps shutting down

Sounds like overheating. If the thermal paste has worn and/or is not making proper contact with the CPU heat sink and fan, your computer will overheat and shut down quickly, to prevent damage.

Also, the heatsink WILL appear cold in that case, because proper heat transfer isn't taking place, so the heat doesn't really transfer to the heat sink accordingly thus seeming "cold." If you can, re-apply the thermal paste or have a technician do it for you.

Another thing to do is make sure the fan and heatsink aren't full of lint/dust, etc. That can prevent heat dissipation and cause overheating.

If none of those work, you are looking at a different type of hardware problem, such as a faulty motherboard or CPU.

I have an Lenovo 3000 N100 Notebook, TYPE: 0768-04U which came loaded with Vista operating system. The battery that came with it was DOA so I ordered a new battery from Lenovo which is working fine.

The issue I'm experiencing is as follows:

After using the notebook where everything is working just fine. No devices with any issues, I go through a normal shutdown and leave the notebook off for a day or two with the new battery in (fully charged) and the power cable plugged in.

Upon trying to boot up, the Rescue & Recovery process kicks off automatically and Vista will not boot. However, if I take the battery out and unplug the power chord and leave it sitting for a day or so and then put the battery back in and plug the power chord in, it boots up with Vista with no problems.

Anyone have any ideas on what might be causing this or what to do to remedy this situation?

Thanks!

Hello, this is my first post. I am new member. I also am a very novice/amateur computer user and so I need some help from some pros or anyone that has experienced a similar problem and can help fix my laptop. I have a Lenovo 3000 N100 laptop model number 0768 6EU. About a week ago I updated/downloaded a bunch of software upgrades from Lenovo's website recommended for this computer. Prior to this download I was able to connect to my wireless home network. But after the download of various required/recommended software upgrades it no longer connects to the wireless home network. my other laptops connect so I know that it is not my wireless router. I have tried various things recommended by the ThinkVantage access connection on my computer but I get the following on that: signal strength: 0%, status: disconnected, IP address: not assigned. I also ran the diagnostic tools and it gave me the following: connection status: disconnected, cause: wireless stack initialization failed, error code: 118, recommended action please check the wireless driver installation. I even went to the Intel wireless 3945 abg hardware properties window and pressed the tab to revert back to the prior driver for the wireless card. I would appreciate any help.

My laptop was working fine last summer until the Windows Genuine Advantage kept popping up telling me it wanted to verify if my OS was valid. I tried to shut it down or disable it and windows started to behave strangely to the point that it would not load at all. I purchased the laptop in December 2008 from Micro Center in Houston brand new. I have the sticker on the laptop that tells me the OS is valid.

Lenovo did not ship with the rescue and recovery disks, instead it has a rescue partition. The rescue partition would not restore the laptop. So I tried the rescue and recovery DVD I created. Somehow it did not create the product recovery CDs. When I called Lenovo about this problem, they belittled me and then charged me $50 for the set of Product CDs. I thought my troubles were over, wrong!

After installing the CDs windows almost loaded and then it went to the blue screen of death. This happened a few times. I tried reinstalling the disks and everytime I would receive a different error message, it is missing drivers, it can't locate a file, etc.

Today it returned:
The application or DLL X:minint\system32\umpnpmgr.dll is not a valid Windows image, Please check this against your installation diskette.

Product Recovery could not find file Z:\UBREC.CMD

I called Lenovo and again, no help. I am at a loss. My laptop was fine until the Microsoft Genuine Advantage pop-up kept showing up. And Lenovo is not providing any support for the faulty CDs they sold me.

I have this 3000 N100 laptop for over a year now with no problems (except the lousy battery which died in 6 months and I'm running on A/C since then). Last week I started laptop and this shutdown problem started appearing. System would start normally and then would suddenly power itself in 2/3 minutes (most of the times, but sometimes in runs for 2-4 hours before shutting itself down)I checked the fan and processor. Nothing is heating up.I changed processor. Even then it'd go down.I have made the fan DIRECT (always ON) but the system still shuts down.I tried hmonitor but it only reads HDD temprature which is 36-40C - I guess very normal. Now I wonder where the problem may lie. Is it motherboard? What part of board might be getting heat? Or is it actually heat? Or do I need to get certain parts (capacitor, I/C or something) on Motherboard replaced? Any help? Comments?

Hi. I was just given a Lenovo 3000 n100 (prod. i.d.# - 97684JU) laptop that had crashed. If I can fix it, it's mine. Yay!

Problem: Keyboard does not work. It has a fresh install of XP with Service pack 2 - which I believe was taken off a disk labelled XP Pro Svc pk 2, w/sata drivers for gateway - key preloaded - which was in dvd drive.

In device manager under other devices there is a list of devices marked as uninstalled drivers -
3 base system devices,
fingerprint sensor,
foxconn bluetooth 2.0 plus EDR,
Network Controller
PCI Device
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

The registered to in properties of My Computer has all the symbols for two lines. I have figured by trial and error that the keyboard is not working. USB keyboard and mouse do work.

I have a XP Pro cd, version 2002, unopened that I can use to reinstall the operating system - however this one I believe is for a compaq/hp pc.

My question: should I download all Lenovo drivers to a flash drive, and do I need anything special during install?

will computer recognize usb keyboard and mouse if i am formatting and reinstalling opsys?

I am thinking that maybe with the disk they used that may be the reason why the keyboard does not work.

Or can I just install the drivers needed from the lenovo site, and then fix the "registered to" and "users" in the registry?

what would be my best bet here?

thanks for the help here.

A:3000 N100 PXE Error, won't boot to BIOS

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I'm not an owner of your model, but in reviewing the Hardware Maintenance Manual for the N100 it notes that you must press the Lenovo Care Button when the computer is powered up.  You will then be presented with a menu from which you can access the BIOS Setup.  Page #104 of the manual will show you the location of the Care Button.  Here is a link to that manual for your reference......
 
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/42x3553_03.pdf
 
As for clearing the CMOS, it is probably not needed.  If the time and date were cleared and you received a CMOS checksum error then all the information stored in the CMOS was likely cleared  when the battery lost power from sitting unused.
 
Once you are able to get into the BIOS you should be able to correct the boot order so that you can use the XP boot disc.

I had to open the laptop casing and used this to wipe the usually hidden edges of the sensitive surface of the touchpad with a damp cloth. After reassembling and starting, the touchpad seemed working as the pointer responded to the touch. I had to re-attach the keyboard. After that the touchpad was not recognized. The connection to the mainboard seems fine but I re-plugged it. If relevant or not (assuming the touchpad is responsible only for moving and clicking), if the pointer happens over a link, the URL is shown, that is the pointer is active. 1) The connection to the touchpad seems to have no plug, i.e. is soldered, and I didn't check it. Should I, even after a short intervention that I did? 2) There is a dark glossy bulging surface ca. 1x.5" on the bottom (back) of the touchpad. Just in case, should this be open or covered? 3) Should I need a replacement, how do I find compatible ones?

A:Dell Dimension 3000 Runs SLOW !!!

In most cases, issues dealing with slow computers can be attributed to viruses/malware. Sometimes loading new software (or software updates) can slow down a computer because of the size of the program relative to your computer's hardware specs, but 95% of the problems I've ever run across as far as slow computers are concerned (especially abrupt slowness) are due to viruses/malware. So my question to you is have you run a virus/malware scan lately? I'd start there especially if you haven't loaded any new software recently.

I switched on my 4 year old Pc to find the fans run for 1 to 2 seconds and that was it. after examination of M Board i found a scorch mark on board.. which is a MSI 6775.. no longer available, so replaced it with a MSI 6570G. switched on.. hey presto.. nowt.. could this now be a power supply problem? help. :
 

A:PC only runs for 1 to 2 seconds?

Yes psu first then compatibility of ram second is where I would look...also make certain hsf is firmly in place.

Hi,
I wrote earlier about this problem I am having when I start up my PC. Hopefully some one can help me? I get a blue screen with the words "F10=SETUP. When I hit F10 nothing happens. After approximately 38 seconds what I call the main blue BIOS screen comes up briefly and goes away and Windows starts up. Its this first blue screen I want to get rid of. This situation cropped up about a week ago. I even have done a restore to an earlier time, but it did not solve this problem. Any ideas? Thank you.

A:BIOS Screen runs 38 seconds

The problem is sounding as much bios induced as a windows problem. Are you able to start it in safe mode without this occurring?

My first guess just based on what's being described is a bad bios battery.

My screensaver just randomly stopped working. Don't know why or what the (*@(* I did. I am Win xp home, SP3. I've attached my hijack this log file. I have NO clue what to do. I tried installing some other MS screensavers... that did nothing. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling graphics drivers... uninstalling and reinstalling the monitor in the hardware profile. I've run several malware and spyware programs and they all come up zilch. I run AVG free as my antivirus... I mostly use mozilla, not explorer. Any ideas?

I turn the laptop on and the WiFi light flashes along with the two lights on the right side.  The fan runs for about 3 seconds and turn off.  No display or hard drive sound.  I connected an external Monitor, but no display on it.  I removed the battery and held the power button down for 30 seconds.  I plugged it back in without the battery.  No difference.  I put the battery back in, no difference. I reseated the RAM, and HD.  Same thing.  I completely took the laptop apart disconnecting everything.  With just the motherboard and power button connected, I plugged in it and got the same results.  I took the fan and processor off and cleaned them.  Put them back with fresh thermal paste.  Reconnected the power button to the motherboard and plugged the power cord back in, Same thing.  Does anyone else have any other ideas before I spend money on a new motherboard?

I have an HP Pavilion notebook model XH136 that now turns on for about 10 seconds then shuts off completely. No beeps, no display, nothing. The power light comes on as does the HD light but it doesn't sound like its booting up at all during its brief activity.
I removed the HD and connected it externally to my PC and I can access it using windows explorer but I have no idea if it is bootable.
Reinstalled the HD and the problem persists.
AC adapter works fine and the battery shows 100% charge using the front panel LCD controls. Still will not boot with or without the AC power supply connected. Just powers up for the 10 seconds then shuts down. Nothing is seen on the screen at all.
I do not have another 2.5 drive to check in it.
Machine has a celeron processor, 256mb ram , 10Gig HD and runs WinXP.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
Thank you!

Hello! I've recently noticed something on my laptop (Windows 7 64 Bit).
 
When I start up my laptop, I usually open task manager right away, and I've noticed that vbc.exe runs for a few seconds (say like 10 seconds), before vanishing from the list. I'm curious what could cause this.
As far as I'm aware it's not a vital essential for Windows to run at startup as my desktop doesn't do it, and never has done so. But then again, my laptop is a bit weird when it comes to processes. There's usually a lot of them, many related to the hardware. (Thanks, Dell.)
 
I'm not sure when it started to appear. I'm thinking it has always been this way. My laptop hasn't been acting strange (other than being a tad slow, although this seems common with Windows 7 laptops from my experience fixing them.) and Microsoft Security Essentials and Mbam both say there's nothing wrong. It runs from the legitimate .NET framework folders, and nowhere else.
 
So I'm curious about your opinions about this. Is it something worth scratching the back of my head over?
It just seems a bit odd because I wouldn't be able to imagine what it's necessary for. Could it be something related to MS Office? We do use VBS with MS Visio and Excel for one of my college classes.
 
Awaiting any kind of thoughts. Thanks.
 
EDIT: It doesn't seem to run when starting in safe mode. I'm going to say that's good, because I've had terrible experiences with a vbs worm in the past.

A:vbc.exe runs for a few seconds before stopping (seen in task manager on startup)

I have tried twice now to turn on my computer, but each time the computer only turned on for two seconds then i saw a blue spark from the power supply, which died immediately and never turned on again. The power supply was an Enermax Noisertaker rated for 420W.

My system consists of the following:
- Chaintech Zenith Value Edition VNF4 Ultra Motherboard
- AMD Athlon 64 bit 300+ cpu
- ATI Radeon x700 pro video card
- Audigy 2 ZS audio card

I have no idea why it keeps on dying.

I've looked all over for help but alas; nothing.

Put simply, I'm using a decent Lenovo B560 laptop, and when playing games or running programs linked to the hard drive disk, it freezes intermittently.

Not sure what's causing it, but the whirring of the disk drive can be heard for about 3 seconds, at which point it slows down, and then the game freezes until the hard drive starts whirring again. It doesn't seem to be able to keep itself running in order to keep playback fluid; it just keeps spinning long enough to power 3-4 seconds of playback.

Any ideas?

System is 7 64 bit, with Intel Core i5 CPU M480 @
2.67GHz
3GB RAM

A:Laptop hard drive runs for 3 seconds, stops, and causes freezing

Normally when a disk is making noise it's going to quiet soon. I would make a backup of what ever you want to save.
You can run a disk check up.
Computer and pick what drive you want to check and right click on it. Pick tools and check/disk. On my computers I do it the simple way. If a hard disk is making unusual noises I replace it. First save what you can before it quiets completely.

I have an Inspiron 1545 laptop that boots up part-way, then dies before the User screen fully comes into view. It dies to black before I can choose which User to login.

Should I try reseating my CPU? Clean the heatsink?

Could someone point me to a how-to or wiki for doing either of the above?

hi Braddburm,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It looks like the onboard VGA port gave out. Try to:
1. Use a discrete graphics card to output your video (i.e. pci or low profile pci-e graphics card)
2. If option 1 is not possible and you're considering a replacement machine, you will need a 3.5 HDD sata enclosure to convert the internal HDD to an external HDD to read the data on the new replacement machine.
 
 
Best regards,
