Lenovo Edge 15 Won't Power Up

Q: Lenovo Edge 15 Won't Power Up

When I turned my Edge 15 (80H1) off the other day, it was working fine. I went to turn it back on the next day, and all I got was the power light blinking slowly (approx. 1 second intervals). When it is plugged in the light that usually indicates it's plugged in isn't on any more. I can't get th power light to stop blinking when it's not plugged in. The only way to get it to stop blinking is if I plug it in (still blinking) and then remove the power cord (then it stops), but of course won't power up. Any advice would be appreciated.

I have a lenovo edge 2 1580 and it worked perfectly fine last night.  Today I pushed the power button and nothing happened.  The little white LED next to the power button is lit but the screen will not turn on and neither will the fans.  I have tried unplugging the battery and RAM and holding the power button but that didn't work.  I also tried putting a paper clip in the little hole next to the power button but that didn't work either.  Has anyone else come across this issue?  I have searched the forums and tried everything I could find but nothing seems to work. The laptop is still under warranty but if I send it in, I was told it will take 2-4 weeks before I will get it back and I have important work information that I need to get from there and it can't wait that long. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Lenovo Edge 2 1580 fails to power on completely.  There is a slight glowing from the screeen but other than that it does not complete the power on process.  I was able to get it to boot up by removing the CMOS battery and found a bios updated that needed to be applied:  D3CN32WW.  I applied the bios update and thought that fixed the problem.  I rebooted fine a few times with the CMOS battery in but then stopped again.  There is a note in the bios update file for the Ideapad 300s/500s failing to power on when it is booted the first time or after a period of normal use.  This is very issue I am having.  However, I can only get the computer to work correctly if the CMOS battery is removed.  Anyone else having this issue?

Good evening! I have a Lenovo Edge 2 that has been babied since purchased. Never abused, dropped, no scratches or dents, it's in fantastic condition still. I purchased the extended warranty, hoping I'd never need it.Last year, it stopped charging properly. The battery power dropped to 0%, and hasn't increased since. The machine will only power on when plugged in to AC power, and will immediately power down when the adapter is disconnected. The charging status indicator LED on the right side of the machine flashes orange in a non-steady, intermittent pattern, and the charging indicator in the taskbar in Windows 10 does the same thing. I returned the machine to Best Buy, they sent it to their "Geek Squad" facility for repairs, and the AC Adaptor and battery were replaced, under warranty. The machine was returned to me, and still doesn't charge.I contacted Lenovo, they advised I would need to return it to their facility for repairs. I put it in the provided box, and dropped it off to FedEx on 6/24/17. It's now been 2 weeks. I contacted Lenovo to inquire about the status of the repair, and was told "The technician found evidence of damage, and the upper case will need to be replaced as well, but damage isn't covered under warranty, so you'll need to cover the cost of the repair." I asked for the price, was told "A technician will email you with the price." I inquired about the status of the original repairs, they told me the claim was on hold, pending my review and... Read more

Using Windows 10 version 1511 and all updates.  Used the Lenovo System Update and everything has been updated.  I wanted to turn on the built-in camera on my Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 530, the F5 key, and it came up with a message saying, "This key combination opens the Lenovo Settings Program. You do not have the Lenovo Settings Program installed on your computer. To launch the program using this key combination, install the program first." I went and downloaded the Thinkpad Settings Dependency for Windows 10, restarted the laptop and it still doesn't work. Even the Lenovo System Update program has it and I also downloaded it.  I restarted the laptop again and it still doesn't work. I then went to install the Lenovo Settings App on the Windows store and it doesn't look like the right one plus it still didn't work. My other problem is with the Lenovo Companion App from the Windows Store.  It worked before but now it ask to "Please install or update the Lenovo System Interface Driver for full functionality of Companion, then restart the app after installation."  I have installed the Lenovo System Interface Driver multiple times and it still popped up that message.  Yes, I have restarted the laptop and Companion.   Is there a reason why these issues are happening and how to fix it?  Thank you in advance.

The product Lenovo edge 15, I purchased and just opening and closing it from laptop mode to tablet mode broke the surface part of the hinges. After that happened shortly after within a week or so, the whole computer stopped working. It will not turn on period, even with charge. Even though I barely used it. I went to basic training, came back and the warranty had expired for anything. I was going to college and paid my last few money I had to buy that computer only for it stop working, now I'm still a college student having to go to library just for use of a computer. I'm thoroughly upset at my situation and at the durability & design of the product. I would love to have a new one or to trade it in for my money back.

Purchased a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge e520 1143-cto from Lenovo in December, 2011 and now it won't power-up. I plug it in wall, press the power button and nothing. 1 year warranty expired December, 2012.

Can't be the power cord: 1) Tried a cord from another Thinkpad (R61i back in 2008 that's slow but still works) but still get no power, and 2) Edge's cord powers up R61i.

Price to fix probably beyond what the laptop's worth but thought I'd ask anyway. Thanks.
 

A:Solved: Thinkpad Edge won't power-up

Those models have a faulty EEPROM chip on the motherboard. However there is no recall on them so you will have to pay out of pocket to get it fixed. The cheapest and best way to get it fixed is to call Lenovo and buy an extended warranty for about $130(I think) and then use the newly purchased warranty to get a warranty claim to send it in. Turn around is one to two weeks and shipping is covered both ways. The only upside is that you then have a warranty again on the laptop for other possible issues.

Hello Walter,
 
Please update the BIOS which will resolve the issue.

You may also try the Windows registry setting. Kindly be careful while editing windows registry.
Have a look at the following registry location (note that you need to invoke regedit.exe with administrative privileges in order to make any changes in this location) and ensure that the value ClearPageFileAtShutdown is set to 0 (if it is set to 1, change the value to 0).

After that when I lauch it, it displays the message "Completing the Lenovo Vantage Gaming Feature Driver Setup Wizard".

I have a Lenovo edge 2 with windows 10. The problem: Randomly my screen goes black with the LED light still on. Sound goes off as well and mouse does not appear. Seems like its crashing. Happens about 2-3 times in a span of 4-5 hours. When I check my system event log, around the time of the crash I have 1 error and 1 warning  1 second apart as follows: ERROR: A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the FontCache3.0.0.0 service to connect. WARNING: The speed of processor 3 in group 0 is being limited by system firmware. The processor has been in this reduced performance state for 71 seconds since the last report. I also get a "could not reconnect to all network drivers" message at start-up which may or may not be related. Could this be malware??

I have a very strange issue with my processor underclocking.The factory specs for this laptop state my processor is the intel i7 500U @ 2.4GHz. Which it does fine and has perfect performance. Unless my laptop is under 20 percent AND plugged in (yes, plugged in, not on battery). I fmy laptop gets low on charge and drops below 20 percent I can hardly use it at the same time it is charging because it underclocks my cpu to a max clock of .5GHz rendering my laptop extremely sluggish even when doing simple operations. Once it has charged to 20 percent or above I have to disconnect the charger and then the cpu will throttle back up and then I can reconnect the charger without it underclocking until next time it has dropped below 20 percent and I plug it in. Please tell me if you have a suggested fix or if this may be a hardware problem (which seems a little unlikely). For the record I have played around with every option in the advanced power settings and have it on high performance mode and everything but nothing fixes it. Thanks in advance, Alex

I am presently researching to purchase a laptop for my wife at Christmas who is a teacher thus she will need to access the internet, do Office work, grading, emails, research, etc., but no gaming at all.

Will be running 7 64 OS, with 4 gigs of RAM, and hopefully a 7200 rpm hd. Leaning towards the i5 processor.

The Thinkpad Edge is part of Lenovo's excellent T Series but somewhat less expensive. Looking at current configurations it seems it will deliver what I am looking for but I know nothing of the quality build.

Would love to hear back from people who have used this series and/or from ITs who repair laptops for their insights.

A:Lenovo EDGE E440 RAM upgrade

Hi -- I just bought this kind of RAM for my E540, and it has worked just fine. The set I bought was G.Skil F3-1600C9D-16GRSL (which I believe is the same you specified; sorry if I misread it).  To be absolutely certain I was ordering a compatible set, I went through the vendor's Memory Selector or Memory Finder tool. That way, if it recommends something that DOESN'T work I figure their customer support has a moral obligation to make it right. Most of the online vendors have a selector to help you find upgrades -- the one I used was at newegg.com but your favorite vendor (even in a retail store) probably has one too.
