Hi  We have purchased a Lenovo Yoga Laptop on 20.01.17. From 10th of April onwards , there is some issues with Laptop Power Button .We are not able to switch it on using power Button.

Opened up the case housing the motherboard to get at the power to see if I could jimmy it a little bit because I couldn't turn it on. A while ago I accidentally bumped the 1yr old notebook in its case against the desk and since then was having difficulty turn it on needing a little more effort since the time I bought it. About a 3 weeks ago it wouldn't turn on no matter how hard I tried. When I posted a question on how to deal with the first answer was to open the casing to see if I could get at the button easier. I did that, after getting the smallest phillips screwdriver but wasn't able to get the button to work. It is somehow loose and not connecting. I also noticed that unscrewing the housing unit holding the motherboard might make it easier but I have not expertise in this and I don't want to mess things up. I wonder if anyone could get a help with this ,maybe a schematic showing me the parts of the housing unit so that I can unscrew it safely and not messing everything up or any other solution - short of taking it to a specialist. Any help very much appreciated. Thanks!

This is my first time posting; i was wondering if anyone would help me with my problem. I have a lenovo 3 2in1 14inch yoga series laptop and i have been very pleased with it up until now. Recently I have not been able to power it on with the power button. I think about 6 months ago, while in it's case I accidently bumped the side of it onto a desk, and every since it became increasingly more difficult to turn it on - I've had to apply more and more pressure to turn the  system on. I also noticed it had been more indented and pliable than originally but I gave no importance to it since I could still turn it on. This brings me to about a week ago when I could no longer to turn it on at all no matter how hard i tried. I wonder, short of short of getting another computer and since I have an an expired warranty, if I can find an easier solution to this problem. All possible solutions appreciated. Thank you!

Starting having trouble with my power button last week.1. Would not power on when pressing power button.  When I tried the "novo" button, it does goes through System Recovery menu and I can do a normal startup.2. Today I disconnected the battery.  I plugged the power cable in and was able to successfully use the power button to start up.  Upon shut down, the power button does not work again unless I unplug power cable, then re-plug it in, then power button will work (just once, then have to repeat steps above).3.  If the battery is plugged in, the power button does not work in either battery only mode (battery shows good charge) or when the battery and power cable are connected (hitting 'novo" button - System Recovery menu comes up and I am able to go through Normal StartUp option again, on recovery menu). Not sure what is going on here or how to resolve.

Hi Everyone  I have a Yoga 500 141BD (model number: 80N400PNUK) which has a broken power button. It became recessed after being pushed in too vigorously (not by myself I may add) and although I managed to pop it back out, it has obviously lost connection and was wondering how I would go about replacing the button. Would this require work on the motherboard itself or require a new part? I would be greatful for any advice, Thank you Lesley.Note: I am aware that this model of laptop can be switched on using a paper clip, however I would like to resolve the issue instead of using an alternative method.

Since you have to hunt around different Lenovo sites (and other sites) to find out about these softwares, I decided to make a post to get feedback from actual Yoga owners on how these programs interact, what they do, which ones are prerequisite, and which ones are unnecessary. Please don't take this as a blanket answer. This is just what I have found. It might be right - it might be wrong. I'm looking for others to post their experiences as well. Lenovo System Interface Foundation Driver - Necessary prerequisite (missing driver in device manager without it). It allows the Lenovo Utility and Lenovo Companion to work. Lenovo Yoga Mode Control - Necessary if you want to use your yoga to seemlessly change between all the different modes (laptop, tablet, tent, stand). This software is responsible for autorotating and putting Windows into tablet mode. Lenovo Utility - Recommended(?) This one I'm not too sure on. I remember that I was missing some function that I wanted but I can't remember what it was now. Maybe battery cycle count and health? Lenovo Companion - I don't have this one installed and don't think it's necessary but would like someone else to shed some light here.

I have been using my Lenovo Y500 laptop for 5 years and there was no problem like this. Yesterday I got a new SSD to replace my hard drive and after some problems, I managed to install windows and started using it.However, there is a problem. When trying to open the laptop with power button, it no longer boots. It just gets stuck on Lenovo logo screen.The only way to get past this is pressing restore button, which opens something called Novo button menu Where I have to select "Normal startup" to start my OS. Which is kinda annoying.What could be the problem here?

Hello guys, I own a Lenovo Yoga 2 11" for two years and I hadn't met a problem with it since then. The last time I used my laptop (3 days ago) I started it with the power button normally and everything worked fine. But today, I tried to start it clicking the power button but it didn't work, tried many times and nothing. Then I clicked the Novo button and it started with the boot menu. The options "Starts Normally", "Boot Menu", "System Recovery" and etc showed up. So, I turned off my laptop and tried to turn it on again with the power button many times, but all of them failed and now it only starts with the Novo button. I would like to know if it is a confuguration problem or its a fisical problem (my power button just gone), or if Lenovo or Microsoft had dropped a update that change it or something else?. Thank you guys.

Dear all,I would be thankful for advices on how to deal with delivery issues of a X1 Extreme product. I have bought a X1 Extreme last 21st November (order #8920488909) from the italian official Lenovo website, to be delivered to Italy. The UPS online tracking shows a last scan of the package (in Italy but not in the final destination) on December 13, which was also the Estimated Delivery Date. After that, I waited a couple of days until on the 19th December I contacted UPS: they "probably have lost it", and need Lenovo to contact them and initiate the investigation procedure to determine whether the package has been definitively lost. I called the Lenovo consumer service and they opened a ticket to contact UPS. Since the 19th I have called several other times, but today - January the 10th! - UPS has not yet heard anything from them. Lenovo claims that if UPS does not officialize that the package is lost, they cannot issue a full refound. However they are not starting the investigation! This is getting pretty surreal. Any advice on how to move? EP

Hello there,I have Lenovo Yoga 13 with Windows 8.1 and recently it has started behaving strangely. It was in hibernation for some time, then I opened it and the notification ?Autorotation on/Autorotation off? started winkling and changing all the time in the upper left corner. I had great problems with typing my account password because keyboard did not obey my actions. After some time, I found out that if I pressed ?r? button, command line appeared. The same for the others buttons, just as ?windows? button was pressed. So, I downloaded SharpKeys and turned off left ?windows? button. After that winkling notification about autorotation disappeared, but the ?o? button began always typing itself, as if it was stuck and it continues to behave the same way. Everything goes well if autorotation button on the right side of laptop is pressed and held, but after pressing this button no notification appears just as if it is broken. If it is not pressed and held, ?o? button types itself and also touchpad works bad. I have also turned off ?o? button, but touchpad still works really bad and it is very uncomfortable not to have ?o? button.What I have already tried to deal with this problem:Checking for virusesDeleting recent softwareAutomatic drivers update via Lenovo websiteKeyboard and Synaptics drivers reinstallationChanging autorotation parameters in registryWhen I disconnected keyboard from the laptop, notification ?Autorotation on/Autorotation off?...
