Ideapad 510S won't boot up on battery

Q: Ideapad 510S won't boot up on battery

Hi all, I've got a strange anomaly with my 18 month old 510S 14" running windows 10. A couple of days ago I opened it up to boot up on battery and nothing happened. I plugged in the AC power supply and it fired into action. The battery indicator was showing 78% and charging. So I unplugged the AC and the machine shut down instantly. I plugged the AC back in and booted up without problem. I left it on for a while, then unplugged the AC once the battery had reached 98% charged - this time the machine stayed on using the battery. Then I experimented by restarting just on battery, and all was good. Then I shut down the laptop, left it for 10 mins, then tried to start up - nothing. Plugged in the AC and it came to life, still saying the battery was at 98% and charging. After several hours of online research, and assuming it was a battery fault I bought a replacement. I fitted the new battery, same issue. So it will restart on battery, but not boot up from cold on battery. AC is good and charges the battery, and once the machine has booted up I can unplug the AC and the machine will stay running on battery only. Anyone come across this before, or have an idea what the culprit might be? Many thanks in advance.

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 recently bought Ideapad 510s - 14ISK (i7) and the battery life is just awful.It lasts about 1hr and 50 min on Balanced while browsing Internet or watching a movie. Is this normal ? I previously had a crappy 4yr old Samsung laptop and even after 4 years the battery life on it was better than on my new Lenovo. Thanks !

Hi,I have had my ideapad 510s for about 6 months. I recently moved from Malaysia to Auckland and have noticed that the battery drains fast. It lasts only 1 1/2 hours instead of the usual 5 hours or so on normal work with Microsoft Office files. I usually shut down my laptop, not sleep. All updates are, well, up to date. Anyone with the same problem? Can anyone shed some light, please? Thanks.

Hello, I bought my ideapad 520s 14IKB on 25/08/2017, and, today I just checked my battery status in Lenovo Settings, and the total capacity of the battery is now 47,58Wh and the design capacity is 52,5Wh, that means that in 3 weeks the battery is now in 90% of it's capacity... Is this normal? At this rate soon enough my battery will be dead. Thanks in advance.

I ordered an Ideapad 510S with the 256GB SSD, 7th generation i7, and AMD Radeon R7 graphics last month, and I was so excited to get my hands on it. I've never owned a Lenovo product before, but my friends convinced me that Lenovo is a fantastic brand, and so I placed the order for my new daily driver laptop. After a couple of weeks of waiting, it finally arrived! I followed the initial startup instructions (plugging in the power adapter and then booting via the power button), and to my dismay, the laptop did not boot windows first-time startup protocol, but instead directed me to a blue screen that said: "Your PC/Device needs to be repaired". FANTASTIC. Error code: 0xc0000185 was spat out at me. I tried to repair the laptop via the onscreen options but to no avail, and so began my conquest with the Lenovo technical support/sales departments. After describing my issue to someone at technical support over the phone, she was not able to fix my issue, and nor was she able to transfer me to anybody at the sales department to further help me. Instead, I was left to call someone at Lenovo sales, and re-explain to them the entirety of my issue. They simply informed me that I can return the laptop for a refund, or have a replacement PC sent to me. I couldn't believe it. I don't understand how a company as large as Lenovo, who is supposed to be focused on providing excellent customer service, can allow a completely defunct unit to arrive in my hands and then make me the one who has to ...

Other than being a bit thicker, the Ideapad 510 seems to be equal or better than the 510s accross the board, and yet the 510s is more expensive. Why is that? Also, I can't seem to find any thorough reviews of either. Could somebody link me some?

I bought a new Lenovo Ideapad 510s 14" recently. The fan constantly runs, even if the laptop is idle. A quick look at task manger shows that only 2% of the CPU and 31% of the memory is being used. The laptop is not heating up at all, yet the fan is still running. I have scanned for viruses and malware using Windows Defender and Malwarebytes, and got 0 results. I disabled Cortana and the P2P windows update system too. Anyone have any idea why this is happening?

A:Ideapad 510S 13IKB - I can't turn it on!

Hi Mperal , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
You can follow the initial power check out guideline (page 21-22) from the hardware manual initially.
Checking probable point of failure such as adapter functionality we hope that a spare one would charge up the battery while the laptop is turned off. Battery indicators should indicate change in status after 1-2 hours being plugged in. 
 
Here is the official service center locator but you may consult with other repair center to verify the cause until you can get back to your location where your inwarranty service would be available.
 
 
Update us how things go.
 
Regards

I tryed to follow the solution proposed in the Lenovo forum but:
 
1. In the Lenovo Settings, the camera page and its privacy mode does not open.
 
2. In the Device Manager the camera and its drivers do not appear (there is no "imaging devices" and in "audio, Video and Game controllers" there are only audio stuff).

Hi, I've recently bought a 510s-14ISK, and am regularly getting timeout errors when browsing the web. Seems to mainly be when something is being streamed or downloaded i.e. Spotify. Spotify continues to work fine, but all websites will timeout, then refresh and (mostly) load up as expected. Any one else having the same issues? I've already exchanged the device for a new one and it's happening on both. Happens in all browsers. Doesn't happen on other devices on the network, so must be something wrong with the device.  Have tried https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/solutions/ht502846 to no avail, and the two emails I've had with support about installing new wireless and chipset drivers haven't helped either, and the Lenovo Solutions Centre hardware scan doesn't report any issues.

I have a brand new ideapad 510S-14ISK - it all works just fine, but gosh do i hate the fan jerking on it. At CPU temperature just mere 40'C it runs to cool it down to just 35'C and then in a few minutes it gets back to 40'C and jerks the fans on again. It is so disruptive when you have to concentrate on a difficult focus demanding task. I would rather them run all the time at low speed or turn at 80'C for longer periods of time, but no attention pulling like this ! Please, can anybody help change the temperature threshold or tell me how to turn the fans on constantly at low speeds ? I come from a mac world - 2011 Macbook Air never did it like this to me...
