Hi, Greetings!My new Lenovo Edge 2-1580 won't turn ON anymore. I was using it a few times setting it up as it's brand new and one day it won't turn ON anymore and power LED light won't lit. When I plug it on a power source, it the LED light is ON but nothing shows up on the computer. I already tried pressing pressing F3 to max out volumne and F12 to max out brightness but nothing happens. I tried to connect it to an external display using HDMI cable but to no avail as well. Need help please. Thank you!Jheng

A:New Lenovo Edge 2-1580 won't turn ON anymore

Hi jheng,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums!
 
I guess it seems to be a hardware issue, but before I go ahead with the troubleshooting steps I would like to remind you regarding the warranty of your laptop, if the laptop is in warranty then you can take the laptop to the nearest service centre or you can contact the Lenovo contact centre.
 
However, before taking the laptop to the nearest service centre please perform the below given troubleshooting steps and let me know the result of the same to assist you further.
 

Try powering on the laptop only with battery and check whether it works?
Try powering on the laptop only with adapter by removing the battery and check whether it works.
If possible try swapping the battery and adapter to check whether the issue is with the battery or adapter?
If none of the steps didn?t work, toggle the caps lock key and check you can see the LED indication.
Remove the battery and AC adapter
Remove the hard drive and wlan/wwcan cards
Remove both RAM modules
Re attach the AC adapter and boot

 
Please post back whether the above steps helped  you.
Thank you, have a good day.

My Lenovo Flex15 has just stopped turning on. Initially, I thought it was the power cord but even a new one has the same result. How do I get Lenovo support to help fix this issue (my laptop is out of warranty unfortunately)? All I really need is to be able to backup the data on the laptop's harddrive. ThanksVenkat

Hi guys, Looking to purchase the latest Lenovo Ideapad s540 (81NE003GIN). The standard config is an 15 8th gen and comes with 8gb of RAM and a 1TB SSD. I'd like to know what if any parts of this laptop are upgradeable, without possibly affecting the warranty. Can I upgrade my RAM to 16gb? Also, I've been told the laptop screen has a max brightness of 250 nits. Is that sufficient enough for viewing videos in HD?

Hello, Since two weeks my Lenovo Thinkpad screen flickers on the right side and on boot up or recover from stand by. This becomes pretty annoying and I have updated all the drivers and also upgrading to Windows 10 didn't work neither. The warranty was due June this year, so I don't know that if I have to repair it that it will cost money. But I think it's strange for a screen to be broken in one year and 3 months. If you perhaps know a solution for this or know how it will be handled by Lenovo if I send it away for repairs please tell me. Yours faithfully, Joost Kolkhuis Tanke

Hi, I had an accident with my laptop and althought they fixed it for some reason one of the two word files I was working on is lost. I dont know if may be in my panic I saved one over the other but the two recovery (.tmp files) that Windows created are both different versions of just one file. I tried to access previous versions but although that option is ON on my laptop there are no previous versions of these files (although I've worked on them for several days). Please help!

Hello everyone There have been plenty of threads about poor wifi performance on Lenovo S540.  But this is a new story. It is not poor, it is unhealthily terrible. I purchased S540 in summer 2014 and yes, wifi was weak but tolerable. Around 1 month ago, without a notice and without any intervention from my side, it became unhealthily weak. I mean it, 1 meter from router is more or less fine (three bars out of five), 2 meters  - weak and unstable, 3 meters - it doesn't even see the network. No barriers between router and laptop, of course The problem is not with router. That's because I tried two different routers, two different ISPs (and iphone hotspot just in case)- same story in every instance. Also, other devices in my family - laptops, smartphones and tablets - work just fine with existing wifi network. The problem is not with specific wifi card. I replaced wifi card (Intel N 7260) with the new one (nb. and probably lost guarantee by that) but nothing changed at all. The problem is not with software. I have all latest drivers and BIOS, and I also tested the problem under Windows 10 and under Ubuntu liveUSB - absolutely same symptoms, 3 meters from router = no wifi networks seen. P.S. LAN internet works perfectly fine, problem is only with wifi. From the above testings I conclude that problem is with hardware, but not wifi card - is it possibe? I would appreciate any thoughts or ideas on how I should...

A:Lenovo S540 extremely weak wifi - new symptoms

Hi LenovoWarrior, I have exactly the same problem. All other devices work flawlessly on the same router. I replaced the wifi card and updated the drivers without any result. Using other routers (at the office) gives the same problem. The signal is very weak and unstable. Like you said: plenty of threads about poor wifi performance on Lenovo S540. @Lenovo: please give us advice what we can do to fix the performance. Thank you,A lenovo user.

So I got a new laptop, a Lenovo s540-14IWL. Everything is great about it, other than the fact that the bezel is not glued properly to the screen at the right and left edges.I had this problem on the original one I got and also on two replacements. I decided to keep it because the price was very good and I really like it. The other options were not nearly as good and as a programmer I need to have a computer all the time. I was wondering if someone could offer some help?I got 2 options:- Live with it.- Send it to the lab under warranty as it's only about a week old (Problem is I saw their work on my cousin's laptop and it wasn't good). Can it cause any further damage to the computer if I leave it like that. To the eye it's not as bad as it looks in the picture. One important note: If I hold it with my hands it will glue back and look perfect for a few minutes (When it was new it stayed for longer) until it goes back to its' original state. Thanks a lot for taking the time to read my post!Here are some pictures:When staring in front of the laptop:[img]https://i.imgur.com/Hz068OT.jpg[/img]Right Side:[img]https://i.imgur.com/fsJTxwC.jpg[/img]Left Side:[img]https://i.imgur.com/JEo27F5.jpg[/img]After touching it with my fingers for a few seconds:[img]https://i.imgur.com/luAVBPN.jpg[/img]

A few days later I got the replacement - same exact problem. The sales representative said it is probbly a problem with the whole line. Is that so? I just returned it to get my money back. Is it a known problem? I see that I'm not the only one having this problem. I've been a Lenovo user for most of my life and would like to remain one. Can you please suggest a fix?

Ok so this is what happened...

yesterday I came back home to see my computer turned off, I hadn't turned it off. So I boot it, it starts and then stops. The fans start up and the drive also but then complete shut down. For it to restart I had to cut the power and replug. Then it did the same little boot and stop. It has been doing that since I switched from a 40HD to a 200HD, does that take more power since I've only encountered this problem since my HD switch. Anyways I went and took my other comp, this one, and loaded my 400w PSU in it at first it would work but I changed the cable to the HD and it loaded fully. So I closed it and put the HD in place and went to bed. This morning it won't even START with either PSU not even the fans. My mobo green light for power standby is on but it wont turn on. Is it my Mobo or only my Power switch... and should I get a 400w psu if I run

A7N8X-X
Athlon xp 2600+ Barthon
Sapphire Radeon 9200 or something low...
768 pc3200 memory
200g HD
Printer/Scanner/Mouse off USB ports
1 case fan 1 heat sink.

So before I go and buy a new A7N8X-X board and 400+ PSU I wanted some advice

Thanks.
 

A:My Computer Won'T Turn On Anymore...

well, first of all, change back the old hd to see if the problem is still there. Also, you should try the new 200gig on another computer to see if that's the problem. AHave you try to change the ide cable.

HD usually consumes same amount of power but it's possible that your 200gig consumes more power than the 40gig. Youc an test it buy disconnect everything that's not needed and just connect the cpu,mobo, memory, gfx card, and hd and see if that works. if that works but when you add more pci stuff, then you know that you need a new psu.

I really don't know what to do, and I'm not at all familiar with computer language and children and grandchildren are too far to help.
I have had my toshiba for almost 4 years and a month ago, my hard drive died.
I brought it to a shop where they managed to save my data and put it on a "new" second hand hard drive. When I got my laptop back from them, I didn't have vista anymore, but windows 7!
During the last week, my laptop has started to take longer and longer to start up.
But now, what I get is this:
- if I try to start windows normally, it takes about 30mins to bring me to the password page. Once the password in, I'm stuck with a black screen, arrow in the middle and nothing else for hours!!!
- each time I try to turn it on, I get the option to launch start up repair. It gets just worst. Once the files uploaded, I stay stuck on a totally black screen for about 20mins or more, then I got the welcome screen and an arrow, but it doesn't ask me the password... It's been stuck there for the last 2 hours.
- yesterday, I managed to turn it on after an interminable wait, but then everything was either incredibly slow, or simply not working. Today, it simply looks dead, and I'm myself desperate. I really want and need it to work now.

I will be so grateful for your advises but please bear with me when it comes to using computerised language. As I said before, I'm am a novice.
Thanks you all, looking forward to reading you.

A:Please help, I can't turn my laptop on anymore!

Hi Dee1Sis, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Please notice the below is just my personal opinion, based on my own experiences with various laptops. Other members might give you other advice, this is what I think.

Almost four years is a long time for a basic laptop. Although there are plenty of laptops working fine after several years, when they start to fail it can be a never ending story. The hard drive is often the first to fail. In your case it sounds as if not only the HDD was broken but also the so called disk controller, the part of the motherboard that takes care of the communications between CPU (processor) and disk drives.

As the replacement parts & work needed for laptops can cost quite a lot, my recommendation is to let your Toshiba to retire and get a new laptop.

If you get your laptop up and running, I would like to ask you to run two built-in Windows 7 tools to try to repair as much as possible. First run Check Disk (chkdsk) as told in this tutorial step 8: Disk Check.

When done, run System File Checker (sfc) with Scannow option as told in this tutorial: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker.

Hi everyone,

So, 2 days ago i was in the middle of using my NB500 and suddenly the laptop turned off automatically. I tried turning it back on but it won't turn back on.

So here's what i've tried to fixed the problem:
- I've tried taking the battery out, while leaving the re-charger plugged into the laptop and tried turning it on but it won't turn on.
- I've tried taking the battery out and unplugging the re-charger from the laptop and holding down on the power button for 30 seconds then plugging back the re-charger and tried turning it on but it won't turn on.

Here's what i noticed about the laptop after this problem has occured.
-When i have the re-charger plugged in, the light which lights up orange when the re-charger is plugged charging the laptop isn't lighting up anymore when i have the re-charge plugged in. So this might indicate with the re-charger is broken or it's the laptop. But it's likely to be the laptop because when i was last using it with charger plugged into the laptop , the laptop suddenly shut down for no reason. So it can' tbe the fact that the laptop is out of battery.
-When every time i hold down the power button for 5 seconds with the battery still in the laptop then let go of the power button, the green light which lights up when the laptop is on does a quick flash.

So, if anyone knows how to solve this problem please help me out.

A:NB500 does not turn on anymore

On this virtual way it is not easy to say what is wrong there. We can just speculate about the problem and this hardware related issue.
I cannot say for sure but for me it sounds like power supply electronic problem (mainboard).

I’m afraid you will not be able to solve this issue alone. Contact nearest Toshiba service, explain the situation and ask for help.

Well, I guess I should have seen it coming, but now, it's finally happened. My computer won't start. First, I'll start of with a bit of history about it. It was bought in Holland (not by me) so I'm using an adapter to work it. It's a packard bell Imedia 6225 AIO (I think) 360 Gig, running windows 7. At first, it was fine, it was really quiet. However, last summer, it was really hot, and it started turning off at random times and it became really loud, to the point where it sounded more like a hoover than a computer. I moved it from under my desk to a more breezy area. After the heatwave had passed, the problems persisted. It would turn off seemingly randomly, but I soon realised it only turned off when I ran too much at the same time. (it was fine with it before the summer though). I didnt look too much into it because it was bearable. However, the night before it died, it was making strange grinding/stalling noises. From what i've researched, it seems to be a power supply problem. If it is, is it fixable at home? If I have to buy a new one, how do I know if it will be appropriate for my computer? Thank you very much for any help you can offer. I appreciate it.

P.S. I have opened it up and cleaned it since it died. It was a little dusty inside. It still hasn't been working, but it eliminates a dust problem.

-Vista Home Basic, on a laptop
-Verizon USB AirCard (Model USB 720)

After about 3 hours of turmoil I was able to find all the services that needed do to be turned on to get ICS to work through my USB Air Card.

I've been toggling ICS on/off between my Air Card and my wi-fi, depending on the physical location I am at. I have been successfully doing this for almost 9 months.

Last month I could no longer enable ICS on the Air Card. Soon after that the wi-fi properties show that ICS is permanently enabled, however I'm still not able to use my VoIP device through the wi-fi now either.
When enabling ICS for the Air Card I get the following message:Cannot enable shared access.
Error 1003: Cannot complete this function.
I'm using my laptop for business. It's really important, to me, that I get this resolved. Does anyone have any ideas?

A:ICS doesn't turn on anymore...

I think I found a possible answer...well, I know it did work for me. Don't know if it'd work for everyone.
After about 45 minutes of having a tech look at my computer he finally washed his hands of the issue and told me to install Service Pack 1.


Everything is all better now!! ICS toggles off/on between the Verizon AirCard and the wi-fi!!

Go install SP-1 and hopefully that fixes your problems!!

Today I made a change in my BIOS and after that the laptop didn't boot anymore. Some leds come on (bluetooth, Z, and the AC led), the fan starts for a second, stops and starts permanently spinning after a minute or so. But the screen stays black.  I have tried on AC, on battery, on both. Removed both. Furthest I have come by unplugging the BIOS battery. It boots then, and gets me into the BIOS, but as soon as I save and exit, and the screen goes off, I am in the same situation. I have also tried pressing the power button 10 times in 30 sec intervals. Not sure what that should do, but it didn't help me.

Let me preface by saying that im not sure if this is the right thread.

But basically my new desktop was working fine for two hours. Now it won't even start.

I have:
ASUS Motherboard
500W PSU
GTX 260 graphics card
AMD dual core 3.0GHz

And Windows 7.

I was halfway through trying to set up a network to transfer stuff from my laptop when my screen went black and my computer just shut off completely. I turn on the switch and it lights up for a second at most and then switches off again. Nothing shows up on the monitor, only the lights on the desktop turn on.

It seems kind of strange that it would work for only two hours!

If you could help that would be great. Feel free to request more information.

A:Desktop won't turn on anymore

what about sounds when you power up, does the drives and fans seems to be working properly? Since it is a new desktop, you may want to check with the manufacturers support since it is under warranty and you want to at least get this issue on record in case of further problems.

Hi there,

my Satellite Pro M10 (PS630E-G207V-GR) doesn?t allow me to turn it on via ist power switch; and if it turns itself (!) on after a bunch of minutes, it doesn?t allow me to turn it off anymore. I already tried to exchange RAM, CPU, HDD, AC power adapter, FAN, but nothing helps. I suspect the motherboard to be the culprit one. What part could be defective on the motherboard? Which Toshiba P/N do I have to order for the motherboard?

Any more hints and tips for tracking down the culprit component?

My Asus Q550LF crapped out on me. I was browsing when a whole bunch of black rectangles appeared on my screen, about an inch long. I restarted my computer thinking it just froze or something. I could occasionally get to the desktop page if I unplugged the charger but now it doesn't even turn on. It'll make one beep when I push the power button but that's it. What might the issue be and is it gonna be expensive? Because this computer has been one of the worst I have ever owned and I would just scrap it or something if it might end up being costly.
 

A:Laptop wont turn on anymore

How old is it? It sounds like it could be a multiple of hardware failures including the motherboard. The black rectangles sounds like what we call video card artifacting which means the video card is dying. But the fact that it is not even booting up could point to a failed hard drive. Again, it could be anything.

Asus is known for poor customer service but you could try giving them a call.

Do you know anyone who can do some diagnostics on it? I certainly would be checking out the hard drive.

Help, I was trying to reset my system as it was feeling very bogged down, (keep in mind this was my first time doing this) so I went to updates and security and reset it and made sure anything vital would still be there. Then I come back and when I go to turn on my laptop there is nothing. I tried hard reseting it but it didn't respond at all. The charging led doesn't even come on anymore. Can anybody please help me? Thanks.

Dear techs,
 
I have an big issue. Yesterday night I decided to download another Suits episode torrent from TPB on my new laptop. . The torrent had alot of seeders and so I thought it was safe. After installing the torrent and trying to play the file with VLC it gave me some error (which is very unusual) so I decided to open the ReadMe file which was also downloaded. The readme file was telling me to open the file with Windows media player and that Windows media player will download an automatic codec which was missing apparently. So stupid me decided to go for it and downloaded the divx codec. After that everything went really bad. Before I knew my whole laptop was infected. Automatically opening apps. No internet acces. So I decided to download an anti-malware program to my usb from other pc and afterwards run it on my laptop. After the program was scanning for like 20 min. my laptop shut down.. and till now I can't power it on. When I press the power button. The laptop goes on for 1 sec and it goes back off. then pressing it again will turn it on for 4-5 sec without showing anything on screen or making noise and it goes back off. The only way I can get something on my screen is by pressing Power button + D. Doing that gives me some color show. After the show it goes back off. Help me, I'm not really experienced with malware and I know it was not smart to download torrents at the end..

Hello outhere,

The backlight of my M-series M70-147 does not turn on anymore.
I first noticed this when awakening the laptop from standby or hibernation mode.

At first I thought the screen was not working anymore, but when I looked closely I could still make out the icons on the desktop vaguely. So at first I rebooted the laptop and then most of the times the backlight would turn on and stay on.

But now it does not do that anymore, not even when I close the screen (to force standby mode) and then open it again, the backlight won't turn on.

I also looked at other forums and topics what the cause might be, a broken backlight or a faulty power inverter.

So can anybody with the symptons described tell me what the cause might be?
I'm pretty sure nothing is wrong with the graphics card because when I hooked on my laptop to my dads LCD monitor it just displayed the desktop of my laptop on the LCD monitor. Also the first time I did this after pressing Fn-F5 a few times the screen of my laptop would come on some times. But now it does not do that anymore.

So can anybody with the symptons described tell me what the cause might be?

Many thanks.

> So can anybody with the symptons described tell me what the cause might be?

For me it looks like a faulty FL inverter.
The FL inverter is a small part behind the display frame and it controls the backlight.

Usually the external display should work properly because the FL inverter affects the internal display only...
However, the issue can be solved only by replacement of this part.

I recommend contacting the Toshiba ASP in your country to get this part replaced

LS,
A week ago I bought a new laptop, a Toshiba Satellite Pro C50-A-153.

Last night I was looking at some internetsites (looking for a new holiday) and I noticed, that the laptop was heating up.
I touched the on/ off butten and it turned of...eventually.
And now the computer will not turn on anymore.

_Situation:_
laptop was placed on my table, completely clear of any blokades for air entry.
Even the table was heated. Now after hours of cooling off, the computer does not work.
With or without power line in it.

What to do?
Erik

A:Satellite Pro C50-A-153 does not turn on anymore - overheating?

If possible remove battery, press power button for 20 seconds and try to start notebook with AC power supply only.

Hello, first post here, might be a bit rough to follow but if you can help me, cheers.

So heres the story, I was just looking around in bios and looking at one thing (because the graphic drivers like to screw up..!) so I switched the EGA/VGA to disable and it won't turn on again! at all..

I don't know what to do.. if you need more i will give what i can.

A:My computer doesnt turn on anymore.

Try opening the case (unplug it first) and pulling out the CMOS battery (it looks like a watch battery) then hold the power button the front for about 60 seconds and then put it back in, plug it back in and see if it starts.

Could you pls advise?

I have a Dell Vostro all-in-one PC, with Win Vista home basic installed. For the last 3 years, it has been running normally so far.

Today, just after I removed the external hard drive, suddenly the computer switched off. I tried to turn it on but there is no electricity indication. Nothing happened.

I checked the electricity plug, but it seemed ok as the lamp is on as usual.

Is there a virus that can do this? FYI, I have the Kaspersky internet security installed.

My sincere thanks,

A:Why can't I turn on my Dell computer anymore?

What happens if you reinstall the external HD. Also, please update your UserCP to show Vista as your OS.

Hello all, I have an HP Pavilion dv6700 or DV6810 as HP refers it to and it won't turn on anymore! My system has 3 gigs of RAM and is an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-60 2.00 GHz.

I was originally using Windows Vista 32-bit Home Premium System Pack 1 (what it came with the system) and I had upgraded to Vista 64-bit. I am not sure if my problem was caused by my upgrade of Vista or my system being too warm (as I have been using it a lot and it has been getting hot and making loud noises); but after I upgraded to the 64-bit Windows Vista Home Premium System Pack 2, I was then going to the upgrade directly from the Windows to the Vista Ultimate which I had purchased earlier (and not got around to update any of it with my schedule)....and after I did this, it asked for me to restart my computer and as soon as I did....poof! It shut off and won't turn back on...

I read up on this online....I took out the battery and adapter completely and clicked on the "on" or power button for 30 seconds then put the battery back in and plugged it to no avail....I then took out the RAM cards (a 2-gig one and a 1-gig one) to try to reset it....still nothing. I called HP tech support and they told me to reset the harddrive and how to do it and still...same thing!

Everything is completely blank and my computer and nothing on it turns on....does anyone know what it can be? I have an identical computer I am using but I need that one to work and this is driving me cr... Read more

I'm not exactly positive, and I know HP Tech Support (phone) usually isn't that helpful, however it sounds like your motherboard may have failed, if its under warranty I would call them up and request them to send you a box to send it in for repairs (shipping should be covered under warranty).
