Yoga 900 shuts off when moved

Q: Yoga 900 shuts off when moved

I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 that **bleep**s off whenever tapped hard enough or even when bumped or shifted. I've googled some solutions and sounds like it could be related to the sw2 on the Lenovo Yogo s3 14. Anyone know where that sw2 is on a Lenovo yoga 900? I've already done a system reset and tried opening the laptop and disconnecting and reconnecting and tightening everything to no avail.

I have the Inspiron 15R Notebook (Inspiron 5521). I bought it back in April and from the beginning it has randomly shut off, but I overlooked it because it did not happen very often. For about the last month, the shut offs have happened almost every time I shift my computer to a more comfortable position. I have checked online and the general consensus appears to be loose components on the motherboard. I have a one year limited warranty. Can this problem be fixed under my warranty and how do I go about sending it back to Dell for the repairs?

Hi naturalTAN,
Please provide the complete error message received for the hard drive while running the diagnostics.
You may also run the diagnostics specifically on the hard drive from the main menu. Pressing the Esc key while the diagnostics are running will redirect to Main menu page.
Also, try the system performance in ‘Safe Mode’. Try working on the system for some time in ‘Safe Mode’ and try moving it to see if it shuts down. The steps are given below:

Restart or Power on the system.
Tap <F8> at dell logo until ‘Advanced Boot Options’ appear.
Choose ‘Safe Mode’ and hit ‘Enter’

Keep me posted with the information. I will be glad to assist you further.

OK I have been looking into this problem for a little while now and I already got a little bit of info.
It is a compaq presario 1500 notebook, OS is windows xp home. I took it into a computer place and had a tech look at it. When it shut off, the power light went off. He said that it is more than likely shorting out, and it is getting shut off to keep it from frying. It made sense to me. I'm not a computer genius but I do know a lot about electric circuits. Anyway, I did a search on the net about it and it came to a thread in these forums. Someone was having the same problem, and someone else gave the same answer. It was probably a short.
One thing came up, but I didn't think of it when the tech was looking at it. A long time ago, months before it started shuting down, it might of thrown a fan blade. I could pick it up and lightly shake it and I would hear something bouncing around on the inside. Now it doesn't make that sound anymore, and I didn't do anything to fix it. It is right where the fan is so I am guessing it is the fan blade. But, could that have gotten lodged somewhere, or broke something to cause the short? I'm positive its not overheating because the fan works fine and I can feel the warm air blowing out.
So here are my questions. What could it be that is possibly shorting? What could cause it? Could being dropped cause it? It started happening after I let someone borrow it, so it may of been dropped. What kind of... Read more

Hello! New here~ Anyways, I just moved my computer from my apartment over to my friends house. The computer worked fine before I moved it here but now it won't start. If I start it up normal it gets to the XP loading screen and after loading for a bit it bsod me with the error 0x0000000034 (which I had to record to be able to catch, it's faster than lightning).

I've tried to run it on safe mode but it restarts there too. Bios is the only place where it doesn't die. Now I've checked through the computer if any cables were loose or if anything was wrong. Everything seems right though.. I've had this problem two times with my old computer when moving it. It was fixed by pressing on all the cables (one must've been "glitchy")

Here I am with a brick of a computer at my friends house, disappointed by the ruined evening and not sure what to do. Any advice how to fix this? Thank you!

I need your help people.
My friend's computer automatically shuts itself down whenever it is opened.
It continues to load up to the desktop but then it shuts down quickly and displays the shut down message "saving your settings..." then it turns off..

it is running on a Windows XP professional..
and has about 300 MB of RAM
it also has two hard drives with 20 Gigabytes each...

Here's what happened before this..
-The last time it ran I had a problem running BitDefender and any other antivirus / anti spy softwares because the system shuts the program down. I installed Trojan Remover and scanned for malicious files but then in the middle of scanning, the computer freezes and I restart it pressing the reset button on the CPU.
-I tried restarting in safe mode but it just freezes so I repeated restarting the computer in normal mode for about five times then finally i was able to run Bitdefender, Trojan Remover, and Ad-aware.. but there came an error message saying that "RegEdit cannot be accessed" or something like that..
-When I ran Trojan Remover there were about more or less 5 files that were detected as "internet worm" I tried choosing "disable from running by changing its reference" and it says "the policy on registry editing was reset" but then whenever i run Trojan Remover again these files are still detected.. i didn't know what to do so i left that matter

about a week ago I was given a used Sony Vaio desktop model RS310 with XP, 256 ram, 2.8hgz, and a 80gig HD.
The owner had the PC (layed on its side) in a box in the garage for maybe 2 years or less. The PC outer case was pretty dirty, but the inside had your typical dustiness. But I took the whole PC apart and cleaned it like new. Used only liquid cleaners on non electronic boards and such.

Ok, here are the issues
XP boots fine, but when the tower is moved around the Sony Vaio Monitor would shut off, along with the keyboard and mouse. But both fans, and DVD drive were still functional (maybe HD too, but I cant tell). The PC would reboot automactially, sometimes it wouldn't.
I checked the Sony monitor/keyboard/mouse on my other PC to make sure they weren't faulty and they worked perfectly. When the Sony Vaio was up and running normal, I moved the back ports around, the monitor/keyboard/mouse/internet cables and were functioning perfectly.
But this time when I slightly tilted the Tower back, these issues returned. After having the PC on for about 30mins without movement the PC would of all of a sudden do these problems again, sometimes reboot other times not.

Now the PC stays on for hours, sometimes restarts, other times it doesn't. I don't even bother moving the PC around Im too scared. I been able to do all important updates on XP, with SP3.

So the question I have, what do some of you guys think it might be? I personally think the Power Supply might ... Read more

During a light load activities like browsing or watching videos it works fine, I've tried cpu and gpu benchmarking it also works fine, so its not heat problem. I thinks it's motherboard problem but im not sure. I've tried these:
removing the battery and  holding the power button for 30 secs.

I have had this problem since new. The only solution is to keep the yoga 3 on a desk or somewhere where it will not get moved. Needless to say all the features that are tablet and tent features are out of the question. When this happens only a power button reset will work, This will even occur when booting up if the computer is moved. I am certain is has something to do with the sensor that detects screen orientation. At this point, I am thinking poorly of Lenova as this problem along with some of the keyboard keys becoming hard to register are combining to make this product appear generally cheap/defective. I did read something about turning off the Intel Rapid Display SSD link if I quoted that right, which I did, but the problem still persists. BTW I have seen a few posts where a similar problem occurs but the mouse cursor still responds, but in my situation everything freezes, even the mouse cursor, zero response to anything.

A:Yoga 3 Freezes when moved

I think you may have a hardware problem, could be something related to HDD or the complete motherboard.
 
My advice would be to contact Lenovo Support and ask them for a repair. Please note that it is extremely important that you provide your problem details (freezing on moving laptop), othewise they wont be able to identify it.

A couple of weeks ago I did a clean install of Windows 10, and it has been running smooth since then. The last day, Windows 10 has been freezing constantly. After som digging, i realized Windows was freezing when i moved the laptop (not shutting down or anything, just picking it up from my lap was enough). I have tested my theory several times, and every time i lift the laptop up from the surface it freezes. It only happens in Windows, tried running the recovery application (outside windows), and I can move the laptop freely without it ever freezing. Any clues? Edit: Oddly enough, this behavior only happens when the WiFi adapter is enabled in Device Manager. I can add that yesterday, after the system froze, the wifi adapter disappeared from device manager all together. Had to disable/enable in BIOS to get it back.

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.

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.

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. I have multiple spreadsheets or power points open so it's easier than shutting those down every time or even at night. But since yesterday, when I open it back up, it has shut down and has to start up from "off" vs sleep. All things open have to be recovered (xls, docs, ppt, etc) and chrome says it has shut down unexpectedly and asks if I want to restore tabs, etc.What is causing this change and how can I troubleshoot it and fix it?Help much appreciated.

Now on this window look for Sleep and open it up.

Make sure that it is on and save changes

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.

Hallo, my name is yuval.So here is my problem, about 5-month ago I bought a new lap top of ?Lenovo yoga 720 15? 80x7? from ?best buy USA? and took it back to my country outside of the continent.When I first started to use it, it has an immediate major problem- ?no charging just plugged? so whenever I unplugged it, it would show me that I have no battery and shuts down without any notice.After struggling with the problem and trying to fixed it by myself, I gave up and sent it to Lenovo USA (I am not from the states so it costed me a 100 $ for the shipment).They fixed it and replace the batteryAbout a month ago I got the laptop back from Lenovo ? fixed and everything worked fine until a week ago when the laptop began to spontaneously shuts when unplugged but this time only when decreasing to 20-50 % battery.The charging works and when the laptop is plugged it won?t shut down at all.I tested the hardware with some of Lenovo?s software and everything looks fine I tried to use a temperature app and everything looks fine as well.I don?t know if it is software related or HW, really hope it is the first one, I saw that maybe it related to ?ME region? which I don?t know what it  is.I will be? so! Much grateful if some can help me with this problem. I?m a fast learner and can follow instructions easily      Sorry Im really desperate and run out money for another shipment to the Lenovo USA.

My Yoga 260 sometimes overheats and shuts down when I'm doing video work. But the fan speed never speeds up to 100% before it shuts down. Is there any utility to increase the Yoga's fan speed?

Hello guys! First of all, english is not my native language, so I hope I won't make too many mistakes. As stated in the title, I own the Lenovo Yoga 500 - 14IBD. Whenever I move the display inwards it gets black for a little while (maybe 1 - 2 seconds) and then gets back to normal. I don't have this problem when I move the display outwards. I guess I has something to do with the switiching between tablet and normal mode? Does somebody know how I can turn this off? My guess is that some sensor is broken. I wouldn't mind uninstalling some drivers if it helps (I mean I can switch manually between tablet and normal mode in the settings). Thanks in advance for any help!

My Yoga 11s shuts down without any warning when it's plugged in. It may operate for a few or several minutes but will always eventually shut off--completely, almost violently and requires a reboot. This issue only occurs when plugged in. 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?

When shutting down the laptop after a few hours of use, the OS (win10 x64) will shutdown normally, but the red led on the thinkpad logo will remain on. (same whether im on battery, on plugged in). I noticed this issue after finding out my fully charged battery was completely empty when I tried turning it on. However, when I only use the laptop for at most an hour or less and shut down, It will be fine and everything will be powered off. This problem only occurs during long hours of use and then I would have to hold the power button to completely shutdown. What I have tried so far:Disabling Hibernate, SleepUpdated Bios to GQET47WW (1.27) 9/23/2015Disabled Fast Startup* *What I have noticed after disabling fast startup was that before, it would usually blink red until the battery is completely discharged. After disabling fast startup, the problem still occurs but instead the LED is a solid RED until the battery is discharged. Are there any other options I can use to fix this?

Hey there,I currently have a strange issue with my Yoga 14. OutlineThe keyboard shuts down when the OS loads. It works perfectly fine in the BIOS, diagnostic tools and my bootloader (grub), but shuts down immidiately when the OS starts. This issues is not related to a specific OS. The TrackPoint on the keyboard is not affected by this issue. An external usb-keyboard works fine. What I tried so far* Did a BIOS update* Removed the keyboard and re-connected it* Ran the diagnostics tool to see if there are any hints* Tried a Windows installation medium to rule out that my bootloader causes the issue* Tried Arch Linux to rule out that my Ubuntu installation causes the issue* Lots and lots of reading Additional Notes"Debugging" the low-level keyboard input on Linux shows that the keyboard is recognized, but there is absolutely nothing coming from it. No I am completely clueless on what else I can do. Does somebody have a clue on what might be the issue?

Hi, welcome to the forums.
 
I do not have much idea about this issue, but what about when you put the computer to sleep or hibernate. Does the keyboard works to wake it up? or if you wake it up with the button, does the keyboard returns to work normally or it just keep disconnected.
 
Just in case, Which BIOS version did you have installed?
 
Regards

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.

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
