I waited 48 hours it turned on black screen then shut off. Then I waited 12 hours turned on black screen. 12 more hours turned on stayed on until my cousin unplugged it. I waited 12 hours again same thing black screen then shuts off. 2 days later I take it apart and clean all the soda off of the internals. The I wait 3 days and it turns on stays on, I even took the battery out twice and A/C and it turned back on. Well, today I took the battery out and it won't turn back on. I don't want to wait 6-24 hours so I am posting here. I have already tried taking out the ram, battery and A/C and holding for 60 seconds no luck. I have also tried leaving the ram and SSD, and removing all power and holding power button for 60 seconds. No luck. Sending it to lenovo is my last resort so please leave suggestions that may help me to get it to turn on.  ** Sending To Lenovo Is Last Resort **I need suggestions to help me turn in back on. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

I had put my laptop in my bag thinking it was on sleep, but it wasn't. When I pulled it up several hours later, it was a little warm and the fan was running but the screen was black. I turned it off on the power button and tried to turn it on again. The keyboard light appeared and the fan started, but only black screen, and the computer gave 4x4 beeps. Then nothing. Tried to turn on and off again and again with the same result. Forth time or so the beeping stopped. Tried to connect to an external display but no signal was passed so it wasn't "just" the laptop. Tried to remove power cable and battery and hold down the power button for 30 secs, which some have reported to solve similar problems. Tried this multiple times with no luck. Then I screwed free the lid inot the RAM and Harddrive on hte back of the laptop. I took my two RAM blocks out and put them back in. I took my Harddrive out and put it back in. After this the computer started normally. I am so relieved and wanted to pass this on so it might help others with a similar problem.

Hi, I have a 3 year old (ish) T540p which all of a sudden is giving me this message when the ac power adapter is plugged in.  I have two adapters as I have the docking station also which I normally use and neither of these adapters are working.  I have read some posts on here and tried all of the suggested actions to rectify this but none seem to be working for some reason. Funnily enough in the Lenovo Vantage application I tried to do the battery gauge reset and as soon as i set that off the laptop started to charge and got up to 100%, i left it for a good couple of hours and didn't seem to move on to the next part in the cycle which is to drain the battery so I cancelled it.  I thought that the fact that it had started to charge might have reset something but alas I'm back in the same position where I'm getting the plugged in but not charging message. I've recently updated to Windows 10 but the chargers have worked fine since, now for some reason they are not. Can anybody give me any help troubleshooting to try and sort the problem out.  Is it likely to be the battery which needs replacing or is there someting else that it could be perhaps? Thanks.

A:T540p Thinkpad plugged in but not charging

What about your battery threshold settings? When you're doing battery calibration (gauge reset), it's a common thing that your inducator stucks at some percentage of charging and discharging. I suggest you to turn off any threshold you set, turn off the machine, turn it on with no battery, then turn it off and re-set the battery.What about discharging? Is it normal? Try to discharge it to below 50% and then plug the charger.

Hello, I have a T540p and noticed that the ethernet lights remain iluminated when the device enters hibernation (plugged in or on battery) when there is not an ethernet cable connected.  After searching around online, I found two similar cases; one was the result of a driver issue and was was a hardware fault. I am led to believe this is a driver issue as the port functions properly and has never sustained any form of liquid damage. I tried disabling the Wake on LAN features as described in the thread I came across, but the behavior still persists. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

HiAre you sure laptop has the wwan card em7355 installed? Sim card reader presence doesn't mean laptop has built-in wwan card and even wwan antennas. What's the laptop model code, MTM (Machine-Type-Model)? Is there unknown device in the Device Manager? What description does the device with error 10 have? The same question for network adapter.Note, em7355 doesn't have drivers for win10. The only chance wodem could work is to use OS drivers for modem in the MBIM mode.What's the network type (3G, LTE) and mobile broadband operator name are you trying to connect?

Can someone help me with this problem? So I just received my brand new Dell Inspiron 15 3000 and the battery is not charging. It says it's "Plugged In, Charging" but it never goes up and stays at 0%. At first I thought I just need to plug it in for several hours but it's been 5 hours now and still the battery stays at 0%. I tried running the BIOS Diagnostics just to see if there are problems and there's none. The battery status says everything is running normally and the Battery State says it's Idle. I tried draining the flea power several times, removing and reattaching the battery, but to no avail. I'm getting really frustrated and I'm really close to throwing this laptop back to Dell. 
I read somewhere that I have to update the BIOS but it won't update unless the battery is charged at least 10%. Someone also suggested that Windows 8.1 is causing the problem. I haven't even started using this laptop and it's already giving me a *** ton of problems. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks guys! :)

The battery status toggles between not charging, not used, and unauthorized battery after it was calibrated using one key. Before that, the battery was working perfectly, lasting close to 5 hours. Now the laptop shuts off when unplugged and the battery status is constantly changing. I've had this laptop for approximately a year now and it was unused and left in an unopened box for the first 8 months.

What does this error mean? I ran the Lenovo Diagnostics and this was the only fail. I've been getting frequent restarts, with critical errors in the events log for "Kernel-Power" and a lot of BugCheck code 59. Given the power reference, can I assume it's related? My 5 year old T540p Windows 10 Pro laptop is always plugged into a dock, I rarely take it anywhere. Is my battery failing? Something else?
 
So far the restarts have been after I've been away from the machine for an extended time, overnight or several hours. I get no BSODs, but there are minidumps. I have a blue screen viewer for the logs but don't know what to look for. I'm a recently retired IT professional, but this is WAY out of my area of expertise

It's virtually always in the plugged in dock, but I dunno if that matters I'm guessing I might need a new battery, darn it. TIA elaine

A:Thinkpad Thunderbolt 3 docking station does not charge Thinkpad P51 battery.

Everbody's p51 would be the same.  The thunderbolt port won't work as a charging port.  The thunderbolt specs specify 100w max.  That's not enough.  Your thunderbolt port is not for charging.  To charge via the dock, you need a workstation dock, not a thunderbolt dock.  A thinderbolt dock can charge things like an x1 carbon (5th gen) or x1 yoga (2nd gen)

Hello!  I am seeking the sage wisdom of veteran thinkpad owners for an upcoming purchase.  I am considering an x250 (i5, 256 ssd, 8gb, 1080P ips non touch, with nothing but a fresh install of Windows 10 pro 64 bit and MS office pro plus) to use for the next two years while I complete a degree(mostly paper writing, web browsing, netflix/youtube etc..nothing heavy). I prioritize a good keyboard, good battery life, light weight(under 3lbs), durability, and saving money if possible.  With that said, I can't deal with laggy performance and lackluster battery life. I "could" buy a new laptop, but am having a hard time justifying spending that much since my usage is so light.  My previous laptop was a macbook air and it served me well, but the keyboard never really impressed me. I sold it, bought a nice Chromebook(12.5 inch screen) and pocketed the change.

I have gone to the Lenovo warranty check page and entered the SN exactly as it says on the machin, but the search couldnt find anything.Then I stripped the "-" from the SN and tried again, still nothing. Then I tried the autmatically detect method. downloaded and installed the Lenovo Service bridge program.But that only says "#lsb failed to detect" So how can I check the warranty status if the webpage dont want to take my serial number?

Hi, I use to check my laptop battery status almost daily from Hp support assistant, but since few days it's showing battery status unknown. I am unable to detect the condition of battery also how much charging capacity left in it. I have tried many thing from internet but non of them seemed to work. Need help. Thanks 

A:Battery Status Unknown

First of all, shutdown the notebook, unplug the AC Adapter unplugged, remove the battery, and then hold down the Power button for a full minute. Now, plug in the AC Adapter without the battery inserted, start the notebook, open windows Control Panel, open Device Manager, expand the entry for Batteries, right click on and the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery and select Uninstall - do not uninstall anything else here.  When the uninstall is complete, shut the PC down, unplug the AC Adapter, re-insert the battery and then start the PC on just the battery.  Windows will automatically reinstall the driver - leave Windows running for a few minutes. Shutdown the PC again.  Now plug in the AC Adapter ( with the battery still inserted ) and start the notebook. Next, download, install and run the latest version of the HP Battery Check Utility, on the link below. ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp49001-49500/sp49129.exe (PLEASE NOTE THIS IS FROM A DIFFERENT QUESTION) Hope this can help you as its simular to the one you have.
