T580, second time defect storage. Defect in Design?

Q: T580, second time defect storage. Defect in Design?

Hi all, since April, 2018 I have a T580. Good Notebook, but unfortunatley, I have a defect on the storage for the second time. The first time, the system did not resume from hibernate anymore and started to crash with a blue screen during usage. When starting the hardware scan on startup by hittin F10 key, the utility said, that reading from the SSD failed. Hence, the Lenovo contractor changed the SSD, but back in my office, same problems occured. Hence, the mainboard was replaced. So the T580 worked fine for two month, but now is shows the same problems again.The contractor who will repair the T580 said, that unfortunatley, he observed, that this error seems to occur often on the T580 and P52. So I want to ask if Lenovo is aware of the problem, and if they are aware, if they already have a strategy, to get Mainboards, SSDs, or controller board without this defect from the supplier. Best regards, Steve

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.)

I bought a T580 with the 4K screen in June 27. Right after I received the laptop I had to leave for work in another country. About 3-4 days after leaving the country I noticed that there are a couple of defects on the screen. But the worst one is right on the address bar, which is really annoying. See the image below (sorry for the quality, that's the best I could do). They're like a dark "stain" right below the surface of the screen. I've tried to overlook this, but you know how it works, you can't "unsee" it and it's really sad that a brand new laptop would have these defects right on the screen.  What are my options with this? I bought the laptop in the US, but I'm not so sure if this can be fixed where I am now (Venezuela).  I'm going to the US for a week in December, but:I don't know if this can still be fixed under warrantyIf this can get fixed in under a week.

Here is my problem. I purchased a custom 17in Notebook with all the bells and whistles back in October. When it finally arrived its edges were sharp and hurt my fingers a little and I chalked it up to buying it sight unseen. otherwise it worked great. The design flaw I found is that I Have to open the screen from the corners which seemed odd to me but what the hell it was new and I figured the people at HP knew what they were doing. Normally there is a place on the top center of the screen in which I could open the Notebook without putting dagnal stress on the screen.   It seems that over time the lid gets weeker from opening at the corners and the Screens crack diagnally when you open it. Upon reporting the defect I am told that I have to pay for a screen and they won't listen that this is a defect in the style of case that they built. That even if I get it fixxed it will break again because of the defect.  Does anyone else have this problem.  The customer service in India was no help. You cannot understand them as the voice delay when they speak cuts off what they are saying.  I made the first guy get a  a superviser who hung up on me! When I called back I got anothert person who said  he would get everything sorted out for about half the price then renigged on that after I said OK to the $249 price and then he said it was $459 to fix it.  The first guy said $499.     Back to the issue at hand.

Hi, if got a question

i have a 160G noname Harddisk, bought it a year ago in germany and used it as an extrenal HD conected on USB.
I went to Seattle for 3 Month and used it there with an american power adapter for 110V... did run a little slower as in germany but i still did work. So now, when i came back to germany and plugged my HD in the PC it totaly crashed and all the files were deleted (wierd pathnames and filenames, not accessable) so i formated it and recovert almost 90% of my file with getDataback.
K now, here is my point... i have now 2 Partitions on that HD in makes sounds like an old P386 and it is slow I plugged it on the IDE port but it is as slow as it would be on USB... if i try to format it it will stop at 23% and won't move on ... ... i am able to use 20G of my harddisk but the rest can't be formated ... it there maybe a chance to repair the HD with any software or is this a hardware defect and i have to buy a new one?

Thanks for reading this.

A:HD defect?

Hard drives are not something you can put together in a small shack in the chinese countryside. That drive has a real manufacturer. Look for serial numbers on it or what is being reported by the BIOS. The maker of the HD can be recognised by the serial numbers and after that you can use the respective disk diagnosis tool to find out for sure that your disk is dead.

My 3 day old laptop stays on a black screen, but fans start to run very loudly and keyboard lights up, after I put it out of sleep mode.

A:Possible defect on v17 nitro

Hello Glim,  Is your V Nitro running Windows 10? I've seen a few cases where strange behaviors such as these would happen on Windows 10 units, especially those that were upgraded from 8.1 either by the end user, or prior to being shipped. (This may not apply to new in box units). I see that you have only had the computer for a couple days. Have you installed any applications or migrated any personal files to this unit yet? One of the possible solutions to this problem involves wiping the unit and reinstalling the Operating System via the recovery partition, and I understand the inconvenience this process could cause if you already have this unit set up just the way you like. If you'd like to continue with this option and would like a set of instructions on how to perform this wipe/restore of the Windows OS, just let me know and I'll post it for you. If the problem still persists, I also recommend if possible to toggle off any Wake on LAN feature or Fastboot/Hybrid Shutdown feature to see if this helps solve the problem for you.

Hello, I have a Lenovo Y50-70, model 20378. The one with a 4k screen. Mfg date is 09-12-2014, so not the newest one. But perfect for me. A few weeks ago the laptop stopped completely while I was working. It won't turn on and the leds on the front were not lighting up. So I searched for the problem. I found a little gap in the ENE KB9022Q D chip. So I decided to buy a secondhand motherboard from China. Exact the same model as the defect one. I have (ESD safe) installed it and the laptop worked then. But after five hours of working, the laptop won't not start up. I think it is the same problem as before. Now I want to know which component(which is connected to the motherboard) cause this problem. Does someone had the same issue with this model, or does someone know which part the error causes? Or do I have bad luck with this second hand motherboard? Hope to hear youre ideas about this, thanks in advance!

A:Motherboard defect Y50-70

Did you try pressing the OneKey recovery button? If that also doesn't turn the laptop on, it might be the power button board. I've seen those go out before, resulting in the laptop not being able to power up with the power button. 
 
Here's a board on eBay with free returns just in case it doesn't work: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lenovo-Ideapad-Y50-70-Power-Button-Board-with-Cable-LS-B111P-Genuine/322758...

I purchased a Lenovo 730 less then a month ago. I recently noticed the right hinge is missing a connector to the screen itself. This causes the hinge to look slanted and frankly it is an accident waiting to happen. I have read about other people's problems with this specific hinge and it clearly is a manufacturing defect. The problem is that I bought this computer while on vacation, and I've been told the only way to fix this problem is to return the laptop to where I bought it, or to send it to Lenovo for repairs, which I must pay for. I cannot return to where I bought it and I do not want to spend more money on this problem that was no fault of my own. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know what I can do about this.

I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this problem. I have a Yoga 15, and earlier today I opened it up to use it and the screen cracked, starting from the lower left. It looks like the frame inside of the LCD apparatus broke, causing it to not bend with the hinge, and that ended up cracking the screen. I talked with support and they basically told me to pound sand, even though this is a defect in manufacturing and not an accidental break. Is there anyone who has had this happen and how they dealt with it, or a Lenovo rep that can give me some help? I appreciate any advice! Thanks!

Hi everyone.  I bought a 2018 YOGA 730 15.6" 2 weeks ago and I've been enjoying this laptop so far w/o any problem. But there is one little thing that's kind of bothering me. The right hinge seems to miss a connection!  The left hinge has a wire or some sort of connection in both upper and lower part of the hinge, while the right hinge doesn't have anything that connects the upper part. I hope you can see and understand what I mean from below photos. There is a noticeable gap in the red circle at the right hinge.  So far I haven't found any functional error even though it looks a bit insecure since the hinge connection isn't symmetrical. I somehow feel like it should be. So... could this be a defect? Or is it just how it's designed? I'd really appreciate it if some could clarify this for me. I seriously hope this is not a defect that will cause the hinge to fall apart with months of use.  Thank you!!

I bought a Dell Inspiron 15 3000 series laptop, with a touch screen about half a year ago and have had nothing but problems with it.
I have spent hours and hours one the phone with Dell, who finally acknowledged a defect.
When attempting to use the laptop, small "circles" appear at the bottom of the scree, bouncing up and down.
This is followed by the rapid-fire opening and closing of various windows on the screen, rendering the unit unusable. Dell had me send it to them for repair, and I received it back today. It's doing the same thing, no one tested the unit prior to sending back to me.
I am very frustrated and greatly regret buying this unit as it remains defective.
What options can Dell offer me, given that this unit has never worked, despite many, many hours of back and forth, which I am no longer prepared to do, given the lack of results so far.

I am running an Active Directory with Windows Server 2008 R2 as the domain controller, and Windows 7 for the clients. As standard, the clients use Internet Explorer 9 as their web browser. I have noticed that there is a critical performance defect in IE9, at least in this setup.

I can load the homepage, Google, within a second - this is fine. However, if I then try to load a games website (the domain users are quite fond of game sites such as Armor Games), the HTML title loads, but the page remains white. After around 20 seconds, half of the page loads, but is not interactive (the cursor doesn't update appropriately). After that, it is forever stuck on a half-loaded page. It's also impossible to close the browser or tab. However, opening a new tab works instantly.

Hi
just testing W8 RP with HYPER-V. Seems that if you enable this VMware workstation no longer functions.

I think from what I remember this worked OK in the Consumer preview.

So is this a VMware or Ms bug -- I'd suspect it's VMware's bug because you could install VMware AFTER setting up your desired Windows 8 environment.

Which is a pity since if it was an MS bug it would be on a fix list before RTM / Release candidate builds.

A:VMware or Windows 8 defect with HYPER-V

They cannot share VT-x from what I've found out.






If you already run a virtualisation environment such as VMWare or VirtualBox (with 64-bit VMs only), they will no longer work. The reason is that the Hypervisor doesn't expose the VT-x extension to it's virtual machines (including your new root), and so other virtualisation products can't be ran with full effectiveness. The obvious workaround to this problem is to convert your VMWare/VirtualBox VMs to Hyper-V, and import them using the Hyper-V Manager.

[...] By enabling Hyper-V on your machine, your root OS (which you use) will now run on top of a Hypervisor, which means it's essentially virtualised. It's not in the same sense as a virtual machine, as your OS will still have direct hardware access to essentials such as graphics cards for gaming etc.

Hi
Recently we have bought XPS 13 2-in-1 (XPS 9365) with Qhd Touch display, 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD with 4 years of Premium Support and 4 years of Accidental Damage warranty.
after placing order it took 30 days to delivered by Dell, and sadly the product was having manufacturing defects. The system was not properly aligned and screen was flickering automatically, after connecting with dell Tech Support and so many troubleshoot and mails, you cant imagine such a system with unboxing, after that they moved me to Whole Unit replacement Team, But again WUR dont have the the same system which i have ordered. I have ordered the system with 16Gb ram and 512Gb SSD, but WUR team is offering me lower version of system i.e. with 8GB ram and 256 GB ssd for the price i have paid. also they are not ready to refund my amount. So I am moving to consumer court for the same.
This is happened with me when i bought highest possible tech specification system with 4 years of Premium Support and Accidental Warranty by paying 174000 INR. Its my suggestion please don't buy Dell laptop.

A:Manufacturing Defect in Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 9365

I'm a big fan of Dell, and really won't buy anything else. I've had my share of problems though and the most recent was with an Alienware purchase. They replaced 3 of them for what sounds like the same problem you are having. What's bad about it, at least what was the case with mine and after getting a 4th system with the exact same problem, all it was, what I suspect was a faulty driver on their installation master. What I did was uninstalled the Intel Graphics Driver from the device manager and then reinstalled it. No more flicker. In the earlier days of Windows 10, that was a common problem on not just Dell's, but others as well.

Greetings again,

Unfortunately I suffered from BSoD's for months and I was required to send the PC to be tested. Turns out the RAM was defect and, as said by the first specialist that checked it, so was the Motherboards Chipset. I got new RAM and send the mobo to be checked by the retailer. After I week I get an email from the retailer stating that after 55hours of using a Burn-In test it showed no faults. I called the original guy and he 100% assured me the chipset was indeed defect. The retailer wants to send me my original mobo back and I'm not sure what to do... Is the Mobo defect or isnt it?>< Any insight would help me out a lot. Thanks in advance!

A:Motherboard chipset defect or not? (P8P67 Pro rev 3.1)

Unless your box and motherboard are marked as "Rev B3" then the chipset is defective.
The initial P67 intel chipsets had a flaw in the sata 3(6g) controller. With continued use of the controller a transistor suffered degradation which resulted in diminished performance from sata devices connected to it.

I contacted Asus directly regarding this issue and sent my motherboard back to them and they sent me a replacement out within a week. I'm not sure if their replacement scheme has ended now. If it has you might only be able to return the motherboard to the retailer for replacement. On the other hand, unless you have any Sata 3(6G) devices and are using the intel controller (there is also a marvell controller on the motherboard which can handle Sata 3(6G) devices) you won't notice any issue with it.

First of all let me say it is very disappointing that a defect as obvious as this does not get checked before a thinkpad is leaving the factory, especially since the X1 Carbon is one of the flagship models. Key(board) model: Dual row Enter key (UK layout) from Chicony 01YR564 Problem: The Enter key behaves similar to a two-stage photo camera shutter button where the key faces some resistance when pressed half way down. Except that this is not a smooth operation like in cameras. I believe the resistance stems from the hinge grinding against the mounts, which you can clearly feel - and hear! - when forcing the key all the way down. I am travelling so sending the laptop in is out of question. I do have wordwide warranty, but I assume that does not include on-site servicing of individual keys!? I did find some information about inserting keys, but nothing really on how to unhinge them in first place. Since this is a 2-row key I assume it even has a unique hinge. In the worst case scenario of breaking the hinge, will you still be able to trigger the key with the finger tip?
