Lenovo Thinkcenter M92 - Power supply died???

Q: Lenovo Thinkcenter M92 - Power supply died???

I have a Lenovo Thinkcenter i7 M92 that worked a while ago and when I turned around to work on another computer, it apparently turned off and now the power will not come back on. The power button wont even light up, nor will the lights where the network cable plugs in. Have tried different outlets, different power cords. I am thinking it is a power supply issue but I cannot find a power supply to order. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I was looking at eBay (I have an older LeNovo), noticed there are a few Internal power supplys there.
How did you make out so far? a couple 200 watts and 230 watts ones.

Hi, this is my first post, so I hope I can explain what happened to my pc clearly. I have an older gateway 450mhz and recently I tried to power it up and nothing happened, like it didn't have power. So I reset my power strip thinking it just tripped the breaker, and it started to come on, I could hear it power up and then it just shut off again, no power, lights or any thing. so I plugged it directly into the wall. and the same thing happened, started to power up, and it was like it would reach a certain power level and trip some kind of internal breaker or something.
Hopefully there's someone out there that knows whats wrong and if its worth fixing..... Thanks alot for any replys

Hi all,

my power supply died two days ago. By chance, everything else seems in
order, except for the USB ports which act strangely.

I bought a new power supply and installed it. The computer boots normally
and the OS starts without a problem when there is no USB devices plugged to
the motherboard.

If I try to plug something to the USB ports while the computer is on, there
is no problem and all my USB devices work fine.

But if I boot with the USB devices plugged to the motherboard, the computer
doesn't even try to boot (nothing happens when I press the power button).

Someone have a hint?

If the USB ports are not working properly, should I change the motherboard (in case it blows up something else with time) or just disable USB ports and buy a PCI USB card?

Thanks!

Presently have this power supply:

Antec BP500U ATX 12V 500W Power Supply

http://www.amazon.com/Antec-BP500U-...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1297041715&sr=1-1

Computer overheats and shuts down. On checking, the fan in the power supply stopped working. Looking to replace the power supply with a different brand. The fan in this one was LOUD.

I'm running an Intel Core i7.

Does it matter what brand/type I replace the power supply with? (I see 550w, 600w, dual power. Should I consider any of these?)

Are there any recommended brands/models that keep it very cool and very quiet?

Old Power Supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...ords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-NA-_-NA

It's a pretty by the book build. Last night though, I walked into my room and noticed the power off, and it wouldn't turn on. I opened it up, checked all the connectors, gave it another shot, and nothing.

My old computer had a 750 watt Cooler Master (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817171024) in it, so i took that out and tossed it into the new system while I wait for OCZ To send me a new PSU. Everything seemed great, I did my normal tasks for the rest of the night. When I launched Battlefield 3 though, the PSU actually makes a very odd buzzing noise. I don't remember this at all from my old computer. The red warning light doesn't go on or anything, it just buzzes. It also happens in Dungeon Defenders. The second I turn either game off, it stops.

Right now I'm back to basic tasks, but is this just due to the extra load from the new system? My old computer probably could have run fine off something much weaker than 750w (it had 8800 gt / Q6600), so I'm wondering if this it's just finally getting a workout or something. It has always run fine, I'm not sure why it would act up in the new comp. I'm sort of stuck until OCZ Gives me a replacement. Is it safe to run this thing?

I have a 6.5 yr old e9180t which the power supply died on me this weekend. The unit has an interesting history. The mother board was defective when I bought it and they had to finally replace it along with thousands of others. This unit coined the term inherently defective with google at the time. They rolled it our before really vetting it properly. When I looked inside the box when I first got it I noticed how crammed the interior was compared to my previous unit.  This unit has always run HOT. After years of the heat build up I eventually just removed the side panel due to the heat. So when the power supply died this weekend I discovered another big design problem with this unit. For the first time I removed the top plastic panel . . .  this panel completely hid and covered a vent for the power supply the whole time! The vent was completely covered with thick dust. I literally had to peel the dust off this area. I always used air to blow the dust way inside but since there was no vent visible I had no idea about this issue and never saw the need to remove the top plastic cover.  So I plan to replace the power supply and have two questions. 1. First what is a good replacement? I see that EVGA makes these power supplys where both ends of the wires are plug in which seems like a perfect DIY approach. The current dead power supply was a Samsung 460watt HD642jj. I use two 27" hp monitors with this unit and work on graphics mostly during the da... Read more

After posting this I thought about the issue with the power supply and HP must have installed the power supply upside down and that is why this power supplied died and why this unit was always super hot. I just looked at the power supply and yep I think it was upside down. For years I have been plugging this in on the upper right hand side not the left hand side. The only person who has worked on this computer was the guy who was hired by HP to replace the motherboard after two months since the board was defective from the get go. I wonder if he had taken it out and put it back in wrong? I don't know since I thought HP and the guy knew what they were doing and I had no idea to keep a close eye on how the power supply should be. Unbelievable!

Hi. This is the story. In the middle of my son using the computer, it just shut down. I came down to the room where it was a minute later, tried flipping the master switch on the surge protector off and on, then pressed to power button on the case. It started up. A few minutes later my son called me again because it had shut down again. The former trick didn't work. Here's what I've tried:

Flipping the I/O switch on the power supply both ways and trying to power up.
Unplugging the power supply from the surge protector and plugging it with another cord directly into the wall outlet. Then flipping that I/O switch again.

Nothing happened. Does this sound like it's the power supply?
 

A:Computer died!! Is this a power supply problem?

I`m afraid it does sound like the psu has gone bad.

However, the only way to tell for sure, is to try another psu, and hope that`s all it is.

Bit of a long story for this but bear with me.

I was playing a game this past sunday when my main pc lost it's power, after it died I heard what sounded like metal hitting metal within my case, I took my power supply out and took it apart to find what looked like a coil wrapped around a plastic tube, half burned, so I guess it melted itself off. It was my fault as the inside had tons of dust clogging the fans and vents. Luckily I had a backup for just such a problem, I borrowed the power supply within this secondary pc, it has a 1000watt psu(sli ready) whereas my old had a 600w(also sli ready), I figured it would be a more than suitable temporary psu until the replacement I ordered arrived.

However for whatever reason it won't work in my main pc, whenever I boot it up, everything seems fine but after so much time of being in use the pc just loses power. If I do nothing it will stay on, if I do anything other than idling it loses power. If I scan using MSE it always crashes around 7 minutes or so of scanning but spybot can scan completely, if I browse it tends to take a bit longer to crash (around 30 minutes more or less). I have ran a temperature detector in the background as I scanned and did other things and nothing ever went above 50C so I'm fairly certain that it isn't a heat problem.

To be honest I've been pretty lucky with most of my past pc's, I've had this one for about 8 1/2 months and other than a few random crashes this has ... Read more

I am sure that you can located one in China for fairly cheep, especially since they are probably made there anyway, and then upon your return, have the original replaced under warranty.     Ask around, there must be a computer outlet somewhere that sells parts that can locate one for you in China.    It may be a knockoff, but it will get you by for your trip, just make sure the voltage/amperage match that printed on the original.

My system has 3 HD's. The SATA is an add on, with a sata pci card, just for storage. The 2 IDE's are setup for dual boot with XP Pro on both(C:drive & D:drive). One is more for gaming, the other is for everthing else. Everything has been fine for several months until my power supply burnt up. I had set up a dvd to burn when I went to bed and the power supply died during the burn process. I replaced the power supply and now cannot get my C: XP to boot completely. I can however boot to my D: XP and access my C:drive and all of its files as well as my SATA storage drive.

On bootup, I select the XP installation that is listed first which is my D:drive, all goes well and evething works. If I select the second installation which is my C:drive all seems well... It shows that Windows XP is loading but when it normally goes to the screen that allows me to enter UserName and Password all I get is a black screen and it just stays like that. No error or reboot... nothing.

Would really hate to reformat(take about 2 days) as I had just got it setup the way I want it. Since ntloader does come up and allows selection would it be safe to assume bootini is ok? Is it probable that the death of my power supply could have cause corruption to kernel32.dll? What say you?

a few hours ago, my mom brought home a brand new Acer Travelmate 4603WLCi laptop. after connecting the AC adaptor to the laptop, I turned the thing on. it worked just fine, and the Acer ePower Management software showed 33% battery power and still charging.

I was playing Solitaire back then, only for like 20-30 minutes, when suddenly the laptop just died. plain died. without shutdown.

so I turned it back on, and it went back on. only for like a few seconds after the Windows XP splash screen showed up, it died again. this time, I can't turn the thing on again.

I checked the adaptor cable that connected to the laptop, it's plugged firmly. however, the 'battery charge' lamp did not lit. I disconnected the adaptor cable, tried to turn on the laptop, it didn't work. I tried removing the battery, re-installing it, then tried turning it on again, also didn't work.

so I re-plugged the laptop to the adaptor, and thought that it'd charge up. but after 3 long hours of (useless) waiting, it's still not showing any signs of life.

I assume that this is a power adaptor failure, because when you connect the adaptor to the laptop, the 'battery charge' light is supposed to lit and you should be able to power-on the laptop. but hey, if the adaptor fails, aren't I supposed to be able to power-on the laptop by just the battery?

well, that's all I can tell for now.
thanks in advance for any advice(s) given.

cheers!

4 year old laptop wasn't charging properly, it was being very fussy about the exact position of the power cable in the socket. It has what looks like a pretty common power connector for lenovo, which is a USB sized hole with a single centre pin. I looked into the laptop socket and saw that as well as the conductor for the centre pin and the outer sides, there was also 4 little tines on each side between the centre and the edge which were clearly all bent off in wrong directions (looked like an old toothbrush inside) I'm guessing the centre pin is +ve, the tines are -ve and the outer connections are just mechanical/shielding. I straightened these all out with a pencil but I think I must have momentarily shorted something as now the laptop shows absolutely no signs of life when I hit the power button. Tried various tricks I've read online about various sequencies of hitting the power button with the battery in and out but no luck. The laptop was fully charged before I started this, but I didn't disconnect the battery before starting which I probably should have. So I'm guessing I've shorted the power rails on that connector. What damage have I likely done? I'm amazed that there can be a design where very flimsy pins inside an external connector which are clearly easily bent can cause such damage if they touch another pin 2mm away from them. Is there any way to save this laptop?

This is my first post on the community and im having trouble upgrading my power supply. I recently purchased an EVGA 400w psu with a standard 20+4 pin atx connector. The lenovo board only supports a 14 pin connection with a 4 pin cpu so i also purchased a 20 to 14 pin adapter for it but have not had any luck getting the computer to boot with the new power supply. i know the problem lies with the connection to the motherboard because it booted properly with the original psu. So my question is: what adjustments need to be made in order to get the proper connection from the power supply, to the adapter, to the board?

Hi everyone, I need some suggestion with my problem. I am facing this problem from nearly a month. The problem is that sometime my laptop does not charge the battery even if it is pluged in. During those time i can only use my laptop untill my battery charge lasts. Which is normally 2 to 4 hour depending on the nature of the work. The only solution to fix this problem is to remove the battery and replacing it and hope for the best. Sometimes just one time doing this solves the problem and battery starts to charge again. However, sometime the process (bettery removal and reattachment) have to be done 5 to 6 time to do the trick. Please also note that if i remove the battery and directly connect the charger there is no problem and i can work. But here we face very frequent power cut so this process is not very benificial.  I believe something is loose in the battery compartment and thats why the bettery does not charge sometime and does sometime. Please let me know what i can do to fix the problem. The laptop is under warrenty but i am not sure if this kind of problem is covered under warrenty.  With regardsGKS

This may be due to a loose connection on the battery, or on the socket it locks into.  Either way - if under warranty I would suggest calling the support line and getting it fixed ASAP... That is the only way to be sure.

I was waiting for other members that my have used the Corsair ATX that you are planning. 
As it is still an ATX and the bulk would still not fit your chassis if you are not considering atx chassis. 
Seen your previous post and maybe this article can also provide you additional information on your plan of upgrade considering both size and pin.

Hi Lenovo, I've recently been trying to upgrade my H30-50s graphics card. In fact, I've bought the wrong card twice from misguided advice. Ended up buying 2 cards that were 12cm instead of the needed 7cm or so. Believe me, that's been frustrating enough. Anyway, I've finally found a card that'll fit. It's MSI's low profile 750ti. Its got plenty of power. Looks great. Hopefully should fit. Here's the link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-Nvidia-750Ti-Graphics-Dvi-D/dp/B00ZA1IFGA/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8... Wattage on Amazon says 400W. Wattage on Nvidia website says 300W. As far as I'm aware, the H30-50 has a 240W PSU? Is this graphics card an absolute no-go? I have the i3-4160 model. 12gb ram, upgraded with 8gb recently. 1TB HDD.  If this is not a possibility, is it possible to upgrade the PSU considering how slimline these pcs are? I'd much rather find a new PSU than have to try and find another, decent specification, low profile graphics card. Any ideas? Thanks.

At home, I am using a Docking station (ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3) which has a different power demand than the W520. The docking station works properly but does NOT charge the laptop. So, I plugged in a spare charger-plug directly into the laptop but it will not charge. My logical guess is that the docking power plug is over-riding the laptop plug. Is there a way around this so that I won't lose power while working from home using the docking station?

I can't seem to find any definitive PSU information about this machine. So, I'm asking - what is the MAXIMUM watt make and model you've found to use? I've seen posts give some vague information, but not enough so that I can actually order one. Thanks in advance for the help!

I recently purchased a Lenovo Ideacentre 700 series desktop computer from Best Buy.  Though the performance seems to be okay, I've found one 'feature' that is extremely frustrating...the motherboard has a proprietary PSU connector.  The 725W aftermarket PSU I purchased can't be installed because the Lenovo motherboard has a 10+4 pin connector for the PSU whereas the aftermarket PSU has a 'standard' 20+4 pin connector. Since Lenovo advertises this as an "Easy to Upgrade Powerhouse", do they sell an adapter to use aftermarket PSUs?!  If not, is anyone aware of an aftermarket solution that I can purchase?  I would think that enough people have encountered this issue that someone would offer a plug-and-play adapter cable. I've already reviewed the following post on this forum, but it primarily desribes a solution that involves cutting wires and using a paperclip as a jumper.  It also mentions a 24-to-10 pin ATX adapter cable at a site called Moddiy, but a later post says that this adapter unfortunately doesn't work.https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-E-H-K-M-Q-Y-and-ErazerX/IdeaCentre-700-10-Pin-Atx-Connector/td-p... Is anyone aware of an adpater that will work? Thanks in advance.

Hi, I'm looking for a power supply for my Lenovo Y510P with a single dedicated graphics card (not SLI, therefore, via bay). I was wondering if you could recommend a product that could be shipped to Italy: I saw on Ebay, among the 120W power supplies, this model https://www.ebay.it/itm/Lenovo-IdeaPad-Y570-0862-26U-New-Genuine-DELTA-AC-Adapter-120W-Power-Charger... Do you know any more?

Today, when I was using my laptop, suddenly it stopped running on the AC power supply, and switched to battery instead. The power supply was still connected to the laptop. And now it seems it would run only on the battery. When both the power supply and battery are connected, the laptop works (powered by the battery, not the A/C). The power light blinks white, and the battery light blinks amber, even though the battery has >90% charge (Demo video https://youtu.be/RTTTGqBKVVI )When I unplug the A/C power while the laptop is running, it keeps running just fine on the battery. But the power and battery lights both turn white (not blinking).When I unplug and replug the A/C power, it seems to detect the A/C power for 2-3 seconds, and starts charging, but then goes back to using the battery after that.When I take out the battery, while the A/C is plugged in, the laptop just shuts down.While the laptop is turned off, and I plug the AC power in, the battery lights turns on white. I tried doing the "remove the battery and AC power and hold the power button for 30 seconds" trick, and then tried to run the laptop on AC power. It seemed to run on the AC power for about 30-40 seconds, which is a fairly long duration, but then it shutdown after that (since I didnt have the battery plugged in). I did this only once, maybe I should try again? Can someone help me solve this problem? I hope its not a motherboard issue, because it seems Lenovo doesnt sell the motherboard ... Read more

A:Lenovo G480 (Model 2184) not using AC power supply

I have a similar issue. I have a thinkpad e570 with an i7 core. It?ll work with the battery in or the ac adapter but not both. It only started doing it in the last month. Has anyone had the same issue or know how to sort? It will not update the new bios because both power sources cannot be fitted at the same time

I have a problem with flashing screen on the power supply in Lenovo G50-30. Everything happens only when the battery level falls below 100% and connected power supply. This problem does not occur when working on the battery itself or when the battery is 100% charged.This flashing is not very clear but on a white background the screen brightness is slightly flickering.

Hi, I've got a few clients with new Lenovo E-480s and USBC docking station that are having a lot of problems.  Wifi, monitor issues, general performance quality, etc.  After trying bios updates and new drivers I'm still having problems.  I thought to look at the power supplies and have a new question. Docking stations are dk1522.  Power brick for those are model ADLX45NDC2APower brick for laptop is model ADLX65YLC2AThe brick that comes with the laptop is a 65 watt brick.   20v at 3.25aThe brick that comes with the docking station is a 45 watt brick 20v at 2.25a I suspect insufficient wattage is my problem.  Can someone confirm compatibility?  Thank you

Hi everybody!  I have a lenovo h50-55 amd A10 and last night I upgrade it with a corsair CX650M power supply and a EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB  [SC GAMING, single fan, model # 06G-P4-6163-KR]  graphic card!  I bought the power supply 80$ after taxis from Best Buy and my graphic card 280$ after taxis from Amazon.  The truth is that wasn?t sure if all that is going to work together and I mean with my cpu and motherboard and I couldn?t find any information on internet to make sure that card is compatible with my system so that means I literally took a risk to invest to upgrade my pc and that?s the reason I?m writing that post!  The installation was easy and the results excellent!  Everything fit in the case.  The only i was needed is a 24 to 14 pin adapter cable [from Amazon] to connect my motherboard!  Everything works perfect and I suggest to everyone who have this PC and want a good upgrade to do it!  I hope with this post to help whoever have doubts to upgrade this model!  Thanks and good luck!

I recently purchased a refurbed M82. My question is whether it is safe to upgrade the stock PSU to a 1000W PSU. The PSU in question is a Silverstone ST1000-P 100W (https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256057) I have read several threads and I know that I will need an adapter to attach the Silverstone to the Lenovo mobo. I have read about people upgrading other Lenovo workstations to 650W supplies, but I have not read much about the M82 series and I have not read anything about a PSU as large as mine. Therefore, I do not know if there is a concern with connecting such a large power supply to the stock mobo. Why a 1000W PSU you ask? My old machine died, the mobo gave out, but the rest of the parts are functional. Sadly, it was built on an LGA 1366 chip, and there are no reasonably priced mobo?s for that chipset anymore. I built the old machine for gaming, but I have not had time to game in years, so I wanted a cheap replacement and intended to upgrade a few components (ram, video card, HD). The M82 seemed to fit the bill. Unfortunately, as we all know the stock PSU isn?t much and it won?t handle the video card I have. I would do without the video card except the M82?s only have a VGA port and my monitor is not compatible. I just want to finish the machine as inexpensively as possible. Please advise, and thank you in advance!

I have a W540, which currently uses a 170W power supply (20V 8.5A) I also just recieved a docking station for a P50 which has a 230W power supply showing 20V 11.5A. The connectors look the same, but I'm hesitant to try the 230W power supply in the W540. Should this be ok to use the 230W power supply with the W540?

A:Power Supply Question - Can I use the 230W power supply with a W540?

230 watts is the maximum power supply, it only supplies the power needed by the computer. I sold my W540, so i can't test this for you. But i do the use the ThinkPad X1 Carbon with the 230 watts power adapter without any problem.

I have 2 failed Z800 power supplies (1150 watt version). After some internet research I am led to believe this is a common problem and related to the PS capacitors. Since I do not know how to do this capacitor replacement (yet). I thought I would buy a new PS. However, I do not want to buy a Z800 PS since it seems to me to be a defective design. Can anyone chime in and tell me if the new z840 1125 watt PS will work with my older z800? I have called HP support and spoken with the correct support people on this and they were not able to confirm if the Z840 PS will work (fit) on the z800. The closest confirmantion I recieved was that if it fits then it should work. Instructions to fix the capacitors:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z800-power-on-issue... Same issue I am facing:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f563JGeoxaw On a side note, can anyone recommend a good service tech to make such capacitor repares in Southern California or insrtuctions on how to make this repair (with pictures). Thanks
