T410 won't turn on unless i push hard under keyboard

Q: T410 won't turn on unless i push hard under keyboard

My dead T410 turns on only if I kept pushing hard on under the Alt button of the keyboard. When I leave it free it turns immediately off. I guess there is a loose connection but i cannot find out what. Where should i focus? What is the most common issue ?

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.)

This just started happening. My T420s won't turn on using ON button -- it blinks a bit but nothing happens -- but it will turn on if I push and hold down the down-arrow button. The only problem is I have to keep holding the down-arrow button down. As soon as I lift off the down-arrow button it crashes. Wierd I know. Any ideas? I mainly want to use this laptop in the expansion tray with an external monitor so I am thinking of trying to put a pad on the down arrow button that a closed top will hold down but this is a bit of a kluge...

A:T420s won't turn on using ON button but will turn on if I push and hold down arrow button

OK ... first I gotta know .... what made you try holding down the down-arrow key?    Does the T420s have the "paper clip reset" hole on the bottom? This is the procedure for an X1:  https://is.wfu.edu/help-articles/hard-reset-for-lenovo-x1-carbon/ My T440s and T480 both have the hole....the hole is not in the same place on all the machines of course, but you get the idea.Or maybe you already tried this trick?

But every morning when i get up I turn the power to my computer on and it has a blank screen the two DVD drives blink and the hdd led stays lit up bright. but then when i hit the reset button it comes up just like normal. can anyone tell me why this is? It's not affecting anything that I can tell just annoying. I do not have to go into BIOS and change anything after this occurs.

Hello all,

This really sucks I might have to make this fast. Every now and then my keyboard will get scramble and if I press (example "q" i get a comma or "y" or something like that. If any body might know any solution please e-mail [email protected] with "Your Keyboard Solution" in the subject line. My keyboard is a: "standard 101/102-Key or Microsoft Natural PS/2", compaq model no: KB-0133.

I've tried hijack this 1.98 (have not posted issue to them yet), ad-aware 6.0, spykiller 2004, system mechanic 4, editing the registry myself (file by file ), Registry First Aid, scanned with pandasoftware.com.

VIPost: This all started when I used MyIE2 browser. Used to only pertain to- when I had MyIE2 open for awhile then my keyboard would just start getting scrambled. I'd have to close MyIE2 to make the bug go away, so I could use Word or Notepad. Now it just does this whenever I have any program running. Then I will have to guess which program it is, close it then the keyboard will work again. So please, if any body might know any solution please e-mail [email protected] with "Your Keyboard Solution" in the subject line.

Hello,
I have AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE with CM Hyper 212 Plus cooler with 1 push fan I also have a SickleFlow case fan 120mm running @2000 RPM. Does it make difference to add another pull fan to become push-pull system?

Rear case fan<<<<<Pull<<<<<heatsink<<<<<Push
OR
Rear case fan<<<<<heatsink<<<<<Push

And if yes how much is that difference in temp?

P.S my CPU temperature is 50 ?C (122 ?F) while Idle moreover it's Winter on my country.

Thank you

A:CM Hyper 212 Plus One(push) OR Two(push-pull) fans?

In all machines I've built even with only 1 fan I'd come to around ~44-45C with Prime95 and Furmark.
I'd go for this example and maybe changing out the thermal compound to MX-4 or the Artic Silver (99.9%)
This will give you temperatures around 40-45 AT MAX with the '955 (got it myself)
Used to have 212+, it's the best.

EXHAUST (BLOW OUT) hot air at the REAR and at the TOP.
and INTAKES from FRONT and BOTTOM.

Hi, my Lenovo T410 laptop won't start. I hit the power button and it looks like it's about to boot up. The thinklight blinks on as normal, the cd drive is checked, the caps lock button blinks on, then nothing. No display, and keyboard is unresponsive. Power light remains on; if I leave it a while the fan comes on. I can turn the machine off using the power button, but the problem remains next time I switch it on. I've tried removing power and battery, pressing power button 10 times then holding power for 30 secs, before replacing power and battery, but nothing happens. I've tried using a different keyboard. I've tried plugging in an external monitor. No change.  This problem appeared after I left it on overnight. I have a hunch that it went into hybernation mode, perhaps, and that it disrupted some important function which it was unable to complete. Not sure though. Any help gratefully received.Many thanks,Pete

After building my new machine,
Gigabyte 945GCM(X)-s2
E6550 2.33 Duo Core
Gigabyte 8500 GT 512 Mb
Sata 80 Gb HDD
Windows XP

I noticed when i open the clip when you install your processor on the mobo, it's quite easy and without any effort what so ever. But after i put the processor into place with the golden arrow pointing in the correct direction and the processor completely laying flat. I noticed when i go to close the clamp you actually have to give it some force. I played around with it for like 10 minutes just trying to put in very gently seeing if something was getting caught....but nothing.

What i'm asking is it normal for the clamp to be a little hard to push down. I'm able to clamp down the processor, but i thought it would require no effort at all. Maybe i'm just nervous. The processor is already mounted and so is the heatsink and fan. The computer has been running fine for about 4 days now.

I just wanted to hear some advice from the experts.
 

A:Is the motherboard mounted lever suppose to be hard to push?...

If you have the motherboard out of the case and lying flat, you should be able to literally place the CPU on the socket (in the correct position) and it will drop into the holes and the lever will go down and lock the CPU in the socket.

It shouldn't require much force, but there may be a little lump sticking out on the socket that the lever needs to go over to get it down that holds it in place so it doesn't fall open.

If it's not going down then there has to be something wrong. Check for any bent CPU pins but don't force the lever, and if there are any bent pins, don't bend them back: they will probably break off.

There are ultra bay adapters for the T410, as well as many other T-series laptops so you can install a 2nd hard drive in place of the CD or DVD drive.  I have the adapter and drive but for some reason the computer doesn't recognize the drive in the bay.  You can hear the drive attempt to power on and spin but after it boots there isn't any sign of the drive.  Are there some steps I'm missing, something I need to change?   I just updated to a 240GB SSD, so the 2nd drive is the OEM 250GB HDD it does still have the OS installed, which would be wiped if I could just get the drive to load so I could format it and use it as a storage drive.  I'm running Windows 10 64bit.

My desktop is right next to my bed, so I sometimes swing the monitor around and put the keyboard and mouse on the bed. But it's damn hard to use a mouse when you have bedsheets and blankets and other stuff that's soft as a surface.

Windows 10
Start - Settings - Ease of Access - Keyboard

Everything here is off. If i turn on the On-Screen Keyboard no keys are Highlighted (indicating they are depressed/stuck )
When I use the hard keyboard and sometimes even the onscreen keyboard its as if either Ctrl, Alt Win or something are pressed down as it just types shortcuts.
EG:

-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via onscreen keyboard types as normal
-H- typed into chrome browser address bar via hard keyboard brings up -Chrome://history- But now also on the onscreen keyboard Ctrl is Highlighted.
I click on the onscreen keyboard to deactivate the now highlighted Ctrl button and try again. Now things are different, as now both the onscreen keyboard and the hard keyboard both bring up ?Chrome://history- when -H- is typed ( Shift is not depressed )

This seems to randomly cycle one min onscreen keyboard works fine, next the keyboard works fine or they either work or none of the work rendering the computer useless.

I cant help feel it?s a software issue but im no pro and I don?t have an additional external keyboard to try but as the onscreen and hard keyboard work ok for a while sometimes I assume something is up and that?s what brought me here.

Hopefully this is clear enough to be understood and to help others who may have the same issue.

Thank you so much for your time.

I just got my Toshiba laptop Tuesday and I'm having a hard time turning Windows Defender on. I saw the tutorial, but I'm almost totally blind and I use the Jaws screen reader, so I can only use the keyboard and not the mouse.

I pressed the windows key, which used to bring up the search box, but now does something weird, and started typing defender, which brought up the Windows Defender app. When I pressed enter, a dialog box, or what sounded like a dialog box, popped up and said Windows Defender has been turned off, but there's no option to enable it, just a message that says to go to action center but doesn't do anything and a close button. I tried to go to Action Center, but it was really confusing. I found something that let me turn it on, but it still says it's off when I go to check it.

Not sure if the Norton the laptop came with is balking me and not letting me use Defender or what. I tried to uninstall the truckload of programs from Norton using add or remove programs, but I assume it opened Norton to do the uninstall because I heard Norton internet security dialog, but that was all it said. I'm not sure if it was uninstalling or what, as Norton doesn't work at all with Jaws. I called Toshiba because I was having a few more problems that they were able to fix, but when I asked about Defender, they transferred me to their paid tech support people who wanted to charge me an arm and a leg to do remote access, when all I wanted were instructions on how to do it my...

I have been having a few problems with my 2 Dells 4300, 8200, and they were about the same. Kept looping on startup. I fixed the 8200 by installing a 'clean' HD, and I would like to try that with the 4300. (How do I wipe it clean, I did 'delete' the 'windows' partition on the last XP install, tried it a couple times, no go)

So on the 4300, I start it up, and it cycles to the XP window, and it may give me a message to hit any key or it will go through a scan routine, and cycle again. When I hit any key', it cycles to the desktop only one time. After the first time, the mouse and keyboard turn off.

Also, I have to press F1 after bios load, to get it going but it would still start.
Also, this problem STARTED after I unplugged it to work on the other computer. (bad battery?)

At the very least, what program could I use to 'wipe' the drive and start with a clean slate?

I had been leaving the backlight on, but now I want it to only be on when I press the f5 key. Why won't the backlight turn off? I am having the exact same issue. I followed the instrustions of the helper, which were: Can you please get to the Desktop Screen of Windows by pressing the Windows Key and ?D? keys together and then press the F5 key?

I was playing with the on screen keyboard and now I cant get it to stop opening up on start up. I have tried to check/un-check the box for it, apply/OK nothing seems to keep it off. --FIXED

While we are at it how about adding a icon for IE or Firefox to the task bar they disappeared with the 3D flip icons. If I drag anything down there I only get a red circle with a line through it.--FIXED
Any help would be appreciated.

I tried to turn on my computer today and nothing happened, only the keyboard backlight flashes every 3 seconds. I tried holding down the power button for various amounts of time (30s, 60s, 90s) and the keyboard stops flashing, that's it. I'm running Windows 10 and there was an update a couple days back. I'm not sure if that's relevant at all. Any help on getting my notebook up and running again would be great. Thanks!
