Lenovo Ideapad 100s Won't Turn On

Q: Lenovo Ideapad 100s Won't Turn On

Hi everyone, my 100s Ideapad recently had a charging issue where it won't charge unless you cram it in. So, I ordered a new charger off of Amazon with the same output voltage. However, when I plug the charger in, it doesn't show the charging light or turn on. I tried unplugging the battery and holding the button down, but it didn't work. The gold part inside the charging port is loose, I think that's what's wrong. Does anyone have any fixes?

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.)

 HI, I recenty bought the Ideapad 100s  and am generally satisfied with it. But sometimes (about 7 out of 10 attempts), laptop does not turn off when I shutdown the computer.That is, the power light (one next to the battery light) is still on. In fact, I know that the computer is really not turned off because the battery life goes down when that happens.  So I have to press the power button for about 15 sec to actually turn off the computer. And I do not think manually turning off the computer like that is not good.  What might be the problem and how can I fix it?Thanks,

I was taking a 40 day break from my computer ending on Sunday, put it in the basket. I was going to test the bootup, and when i push power, no light turns on. When i plug the adapter in, i hear a very quiet buzz noise from inside the computer, and i push the power button, still nothing happens, no lights, no boot. Is my computer dead or what? I just got this for Christmas. Is their a way to fix it, i hear taking the battery and unplugging the adapter and holding the power button for 30-60 seconds works on some Lenovo models, but the battery is not accessible without me having to mess with screw drivers. I want to have a good working lenovo. Should i mail this in to Lenovo, or is their a way to fix manually. -Isaac Schaff

Hi Isaac,

When you plug in the power cord the light for the AC adaptor doesn't turn on?

The kids let their laptop run all the way down, and now we can't get it to boot back up. It's been plugged in and the battery light is on, going from orange to white, but otherwise there's no sign of life at all. No noise, no screen flicker, etc.
 
I've read through posts describing similar problems and seen suggestions to remove the battery, but this unit doesn't have a removable battery. I've also seen various suggestions to hold down the power button while unplugged or try the Novo button, and have tried both with no luck.
 
Is there any other way to bring this brick back to life?

A:IdeaPad 100S: won't turn on (but battery light is on)

Hi smcindoe,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
I would encourage you calling in technical support for inwarranty repair.
The hardware manual here do offer power checkout guide (page 21-22) to help isolate the ac charger but since it can charge the battery from purple to white, then internal parts should be checked further.
 
I hope this helps you on how to proceed.
Update us how it goes best for you.

Hi All, According to Lenovo's website the Lenovo Ideapad 100S-11lBY Storage is 32 GB / 64 GB eMMC. My storage says 29.1GB total. Does that simply mean that they developed versions that had 29.1 GB available, that I am missing an update, that I need to upgrade, or something else? I did my disk clean up to remove older versions of Windows 10, have the defrag set to weekly auto, try to keep the files saved to it to a minimum, and removed XboxApp, but it's hard working with only 29.1 GB. Not to mention I can not install the new version of Windows 10 because of it's size. Thanks for your help! rosenoir659

Hello My Ideapad 100S has in the last couple of days developed a curious problem. If I try to drag something using the touchpad, after holding down the left button, when I move my finger across the pad the machine behaves as if its receiving multiple double-taps rather than mouse-moves. So, for instance, if you do this on a map it does lots of zoom-ins. Any ideas, anyone?

How can I charge my 100S in the car?The Lenovo AC charger puts out DC 5V 4A, and I can't find any DC 12V to DC 5V 4A adaptors. Could I use a 2A USB phone car charger, with a USB to 3.5mm barrel jack cable, and trickle charge it with the laptop turned off?I'd rather not use an inverter, but if I have to, could I use a cheap modified sine wave 150w (300w max) inverter? Or will this shorten the lifespan of the Lenovo AC charger?Or as a last resort, do I use a 12V > 5V DC buck converter to make my own adaptor? Thanks.

Hi, I have had my Lenovo Ideapad 100s-14IBR for just over a year now. I had a few issues during this time such as the screen goes black and a battery issue. I sent the laptop back for repairs which were done. A problem though was they sent it back now and wifi was not working. Once in a while, it would let me connect to a connection but it the signal would be one bar or it won't connect. Usually, it says no available connections (wifi symbol dark grey with red cross). This has been like this nearly for 5 months and I've had enough. I've tried updating drivers etc but nothing works. I troubleshoot problems and it says "problem with wireless adapter or access point." This laptop is on windows 10. Please Help!
