Lenovo flex 2 auto turning on and showing bios menu after shutting down

Q: Lenovo flex 2 auto turning on and showing bios menu after shutting down

I guess the title says it all. I have tried to change boot mode and priority into legacy, but it didn't work. And i can't really find the diagnostic option, only Normal boot, Boot setup, Boot menu and Recovery.

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.

The notebook is turning off at exact 30 minutes, in the BIOS or in Windows this is make no differents.Now i googled a lot and found a lot of the same problem and all replaced the mainboard.

Hello, I have had my Lenovo Flex 4-1470 laptop for about half a year now, have always taken careful precaution when carrying it, etc. Recently, Upon touching the touchscreen on the right side and bottom of the screen, I am experiencing these "ghost" or "phantom" touches where I touch that part of the screen and it presses on a random part of the screen. The middle and left sides of the screen do not seem to be affected, however, the top of the screen seems to refuse to calibrate to my finger correctly despite calibrating the screen many times. I have updated the touchscreen driver to find that I already have the best and newest version so that cannot be my issue. I have seen that this was a common issue on the Yoga 3-14, and that there was a firmware fix to this... So far the only "fix" I have seen to this issue is disabling the touchscreen altogether, but I bought this laptop specifically for the touchscreen capabilities. I have not physically damaged the laptop, so I am curious on why this is happening.  Is there a firmware fix or something to that extent or will I have to send the laptop to Lenovo and get it repaired? Any Help would be appreciated --Kaitlyn

Hello, my Lenovo y500 laptop has not been working properly after normal shutdown (with fast boot on win8.1 enabled). After plugging AC adapter, laptop turned on by itself (I didn't press power button) but nothing appears on the screen - I hear quite loud fan from inside. So the screen is black, it doesn't even show 'Lenovo' logo. What's more, I can't even turn the laptop off by hitting power button! I can only do that by unplugging AC... Did someone experience such things?

Hi, after updating the bios to version 9FCN27WW I'm experiencing Windows 10 startup problems (booting the system crashes on the home screen), with other Linux operating systems not happening. I have the BIOS set to Boot Mode, from "UEFI" to "Legacy", changing the next Boot priority item from UEFI to Legacy First and saving the setting, restarting crashes again, but if it enters the bios and resets to Boot Mode, from "Legacy" to "UEFI" and saving the settings again, the operating system will re-operate. Salve dopo l'aggiornamento del bios alla versione 9FCN27WW sto riscontrando problemi di avvio di Windows 10 (l'avvio del sistema si blocca nella schermata iniziale), con altri sistemi operativi Linux non succede. Ho il BIOS impostato su Boot Mode, da "UEFI" a "Legacy", cambiando la voce successiva Boot priority da UEFI a Legacy First e salvando l'impostazione,  al riavvio si blocca di nuovo ma, se rientrando nel bios e reimpostando su Boot Mode, da "Legacy" a "UEFI" e salvando di nuovo le impostazioni, il sistema operativo funziona nuovamente.

Hi Lenovo Forum,I wanted to ask for help and advice on whether there is a need for my Flex 4 laptop to update its BIOS.It's my first time opening the Lenovo companion app that came with the laptop and I noticed that there is one critical update.  Here is the installation history: Here is the system info from the companion app Now my question is, do I have to update this or simply ignore it?Just to clarify, I'm not really a tech savvy person. I am unsure if this is safe or not. I read from other sites that updating the BIOS may have risks of bricking the laptop and make it unusable. So, I really need help if I should proceed with the update or leave as it is. The current situation right now is, everything seems to be working fine. I am near my warranty expiration. The only complaints that I have is that whenever I leave my laptop and set it to sleep by 11PM, I open it the next morning and the battery is all drained to 1%. This does not happen all the time, but for it may happen quite frequently. Here is my battery information And one other complain is that, even if I set it to sleep mode, sometimes, I do hear the laptop fan go really loud. I am also not sure why that happens. But I hope all my additional information would be helpful on determining if my computer has issues and if I do really need to update the BIOS. Any type of help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi. I have a Lenovo P50 that after doing recent Windows 10 updates, it now is not booting properly. When it boots, it brings me to a boot menu that is completely empty. It does not detect the hard drives, any external usb/hard drives, external DVD, etc. from the boot menu. If I run a diagnostics, that detects the drives for example, and all results come back fine.  If I try to go in to the BIOS and edit anything in the boot order, that too shows nothing. Also, the network boot option shows nothing.  I cannot figure out why there are no boot options appearing and why I also cannot even boot of a USB if I wanted to.

As you can see there are multiple problems that have come up in this notebook. I recently reinstalled windows 10 to solve some other problems. The installation went perfect and afterward everything seemed to work fine. When my wife turned it on the blue BIOS screen came on (as it did before the installation) and I was unable to use the touchpad, mouse or arrow keys to move the selection. I rebooted and it started up fine only the keyboard did not work. I had to use the onscreen keyboard to log in. Once inside, sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes it doesn't. I've tried using the f6 to toggle the touchpad on but it didn't work. The keyboard is touch and go and now the blue screen BIOS sometimes comes up when the computer is started. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I've searched for solutions and haven't been able to find anything that works to solve these problems. I've uninstalled the drivers and rebooted for a fresh re-install of the drivers but that only temporarily fixes the problem. Thank you.

Hello! I am a happy owner of Lenovo p50, but i got couple of questions. Firstly, Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHz should have a maximum clock speed of 3.7ghz, but thats not the case. The higher i see it goes is ~3.4ghz. I use Piriform Speccy.

Yesterday i upgraded the BIOS to the latest N1EET60W (1.33 ) and today i tried to visit the BIOS to check some CPU related settings, but i found that almost every setting is locked and i cannot access it.

RELEVANCY SCORE 51.6

Hi,

I am not sure whether this is the correct place to post this but, as of late my computer has been shutting down and turning on by its self. I can be using it and it will automatically close down all the programs that I have open and will turn its self off a few hours later it will turn back on and will load windows up. So far I have tried swapping out the PSU with a known working one, changing the hard drive swapping the memory, resetting the CMOS, reinstalling windows. None of these have fixed the issue. I am now thinking that this issue is either the following a faulty power switch on the case or a fault somewhere on the computers motherboard.

The specs are as follows:

Antec 380W EarthWatts Green PSU

Samsung SpinPoint F3 500GB Hard Drive

AMD Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition 3.1GHz

ASUS M4A78LT-M LE AMD 760G Socket AM3

CM3X1024-1333C9 RAM



I would be grateful for any advice people can offer on this problem.


Thanks in advance.

A:Computer Shutting down and turning on.

Hi wizkid - You've probably already done this, but have you checked all the important temperatures inside your computer, especially your CPU and Video card temps ???? You could be getting thermal shutdown.

And how about the voltages on your CPU and on your Video Card.

I'm sure you probably have checked these - maybe you do just have an intermittent power connection somewhere. If you have a volt meter you could check a few things ....... Good luck
