Q: Yoga 720 13 Power Delivery Requirement

Hi All, What is the power delivery requirement (Watts) to charge the Yoga 720 13"? I don't know what wattage the charger that came with the computer provides, but can the computer accept a lower wattage and just charge more slowly? Thanks!

so i use an essential phone that comes with a usb-c to usb-c cable, if i plug my phone into the usb-c ports. the power direction GOES INTO the laptop. but what i want is to charge the phone FROM the laptop. just like if i plug in a USB-A -> USB-C cable to my phone, that works fine. why not usb-c? where are the settings to change this direction?

Hi geminihc!
 
Thanks for posting in our community
 
As per checking, this model Yoga 720 does not have power delivery (a protocol specification which supports power delivery up to 100W of power while transmitting data in a single cable. It's designed to be a more universal charging standard that allows a range of devices (not just smartphones) to charge quickly over a USB connection) reason why the phone will not charge. You may check the product specifications in this link as well https://psref.lenovo.com/syspool/Sys/PDF/Lenovo%20Tablets%20_%20Convertibles/Yoga%20720%20(15_)/Yoga...

Hi everybody,

For the last several days, I've been doing a lot of research about whether my power supply can support my graphics card, but I can't seem to find a definate answer. What I have is a 450 watt power supply; it has one single 12v rail that provides 24 amps. My graphics card is a ATI Radeon X1950 Pro PCI-E. It requires a 450 watt power supply and recommends 30 amps on the 12v rail.

When I asked whether my PSU can support my graphics card on other forums, some people tell me it can, but others tell me it can't, so I'm really confused right now. I had my X1950 hooked up and running for 3 days without having any problem, but I took it out today, just to be safe until I can get a definate answer. Although I do notice that my power supply runs cooler without the X1950 hooked up.

But on other forums, I even heard people run this card on a 18 amp 12v rail without any problem and they even have it running on a fully loaded system with 2x HDD, 2x DVD Drive, cooling system, fans and lights. And many people say that 22 amps should be the minimum to this card and 24 amps should be fine. However, there are also people who say that you should follow the manufacturers recommendation and get a minimum 30 amps power supply.

To give you a better idea of my system, here are the specs.
Pentium 4 HT 524 Prescott 3.06 GHZ (84 watt)
Motherboard: ATI RC410 ULI M1573
2 stick of DDR2 Ram 1x 1GB and 1x 512MB

My parents' video card is not cutting it. Since I am not going to change the power supply (it's technically not my computer), so I am trying to work with Sony's Generic 300Watt (18A on 2 +12V Rails). I see that on the 7600GS, it has a power requirement of 300Watts. I was just wondering if it is wise to purchase a card that requires the amound of power I have. Thanks for any feedback :wave: ! Happy holidays!

It'll depend on how much other hardware is in that system, but there is a good chance it will work. No way to be certain until you pop it in, but my guess is, you'll be good.

A:Power requirement question

Power supply problems relate mainly to video graphics. I suggest you get a quality power supply from the list of power supplies on this forum you can find with a search. Certainly 400 or 500 watts is a good choice, if it has steady output.

I'm trying to figure out how many amps at 12v the system I'm building will require, since it seems like the true limit of basically any PSU is the amount of power is supplies on 12v rails. I have a PSU that supplies 17A at 12v and I'm hoping that will be enough. The system is pretty basic:

ASUS M3N78-EM mobo with NVIDIA GeForce 8300 onboard video
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Brisbane 2.8GHz 65W processor
1 SATA HD
1 SATA DVD-ROM drive
May add one or two IDE or SATA HDs and a TV tuner card down the road

I'm having trouble finding data on how much these devices will draw from the 12v specifically. The CPU isn't hard, since it draws all its power at 12v: 65W/12v = 5.4A. Let's say 6.5A with imperfect efficiency, though I have no idea at what efficiency I should expect the CPU to operate. But what about the rest? In particular, I expect the onboard video to draw significant power at 12v, but I can't find how much.

Can anyone help? And can anyone suggest a resource for finding this kind of information in the future? When I find power usage information at all, it's usually simply listed in watts, without specifying which rail it's drawn from.

I did find the following two links in thread:

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine
http://web.aanet.com.au/SnooP/psucalc.php

Both seem pretty useful (if a little out of date), but neither site seems to have good information on onboard video.
 

A:Please help me calculate power requirement

The onboard graphics doesn't draw significant amounts of power. You could say 1-2 A on the 12 V rail. It's quite a lot less than what a better discrete graphics card, let's say Radeon 4350 would draw.
What's the actual model of your power supply? If it's a "Ultra value 500w power supply" then even the underpowered 17 A @ 12V isn't most probably true, rather it's measured as a top peak output at unrealistic circumstances, for example a lot lower ambient temp than what it normally operates at.

Hi,this is for a friend who is interested in buying an AMD A6-3650. The power for the processor is listed as 100w.I want to know what will be the minimum power requirement without any GPU attached.It will be of great help since we wanna cut cost to the most affordable one.
 

A:AMD A6-3650 power supply requirement

In a standard setup with no-GPU one or two HDDs, one or two ODDs a 300w should be sufficient however I would be hesitant to build any system with less than a 400w and preferably a 500w just because there isn't that much of a price difference and it gives you room for future upgradeability.

For budget PSUs I usually recommend these:
Antec VP-450 = $40 (This is a true budget / low end unit, It is decent for the money but I would recommend the others I listed over it. unless you have a really tight budget)
Antec NEO ECO 400C = $45
Antec NEO ECO 520C = $50
Antec EarthWatts Green EA-430D = $55
FSP Group SAGA+ 500R = $57 (this is good but it is an older model so it doesn't have very many SATA power connectors)
Antec BP550 Plus =$65 (modular if that is important to you)

Almost all of the newer Antecs are made by Delta or Seasonic so they are very good PSUs. Some people recommend the Corsair Builder series in this price range, however the builder series is made by Channel Well Technologies (CWT) which has a less than stellar record and I still don't really trust.

I am upgrading my pc using my old ATX case with a new motherboard which is ECS KM400-M2. The cpu is AMD XP 2800+. The pc would work for a few minutes or seconds and then just shutdown by itself.

The day before yesterday, I posted this question in this forum and an expert had provided with some suggestions on this problem: It seems that something wrong with the power supply and the cpu temperature. I definitely appreciated that.

Before I throw more money onto this computer (I really don't like to do so), could somebody help me on this issues:

1. Do I need a more powerful power switch? Right now, I have a 350kw power supply and someone suggest me to buy a 400kw one.

2. I actually bought and installed a new case fan. I connect the pins to the motherboard. However, when the pc is starting, from the BIOS, I couldn't see its speed and the temperature. Is that a problem? What's wrong and Why?

Please help!

Thanks very much in advanced!

When reading the specifications for the P52 (not the "s" variant) Lenovo states that the usb-c port is power delivery capable. What does that mean for the P52? Has anyone tried to charge the laptop over usb-c?  I know that the usb-c power delivery spec has 100w as upper limit and that it therefore wont be able to charge the laptop under full load. However I frequently move between offices and on some places there are usb-c monitors available which means I could hook up my laptop and do some light work (and charge the laptop while having lunch). I know that Philips monitors can charge Dell XPS 15 (and therefore Precision 5530). I think those monitors outputs 60W or so. Right now I'm having a discusion with myself regarding which computer to get next and the convenience of not having to carry heavy power bricks with me is quite temppting.

I just came in to the desktop group about 6 months ago, and a few things we do are a little odd (to me). For instance, we order GeForce 9800 cards for AutoCAD users.

But any way, we always ordered these 9800s with a computer that had a power supply that put out lesser wattage than required. So my question is, for the 9800/GTX 260 (nvidia), will it give a message that the wattage is too low or that it is going to start performing less, or can it cause issues without ever giving such messages?

Can it potentially cause issues with other pieces of hardware?
 

A:Video card power supply requirement (GTX 260, GeForce 9800)

You won't get a warning message.

Most often what happens is a freeze/crash or a restart.

If you haven't experienced any crashes, then the video card is not being stressed very hard. Normally these crashes occur as soon as you put load on to the card, but if this isn't happening, then a 9800 card is total overkill for your application.

You could probably get by with a 9400 or 9500 for these purposes. Technically, a Quadro from nVidia is really their workstation card, but they are all based off the same chips.

The power-delivery spec also classifies power sources in terms of profiles:? Profile 1 (Default Startup): 10 W (5 V @ 2 A)? Profile 2: 18 W (5 V @ 2 A -> 12 V @ 1.5A)? Profile 3: 36 W (5V @ 2 A -> 12 V @ 3A)? Profile 4 (Micro B/AB limit): 60 W (5 V @ 2 A -> 20 V @ 3 A)? Profile 5 (Standard B/AB limit): 100 W (5 V @ 2 A -> 20 V @ 5 A)

I usually keep my trusty Yoga 3 Pro laptop beside me with the power cord plugged in at night in sleep mode when I close the lid. This morning when I opened the laptop to turn it on, nothing. Did not start/wake, no power LED either white or amber on side. There has been no trauma - water, dropped, etc - it just decided not to wake up this morning and no power LED is especially troublesome. I have tried to hold the power button in for an extended amount of time to see if it would reset itself, but nothing. My first troubleshooting will be to borrow a friend's known-to-be-working Yoga 3 power charger to see if my charger/power cord is defective/died. I doubt that's the problem, but that's the easy first thing to check. Since I bought the laptop from Lenovo in December 2015, I think the warranty is done, but not sure. (Any comments?) If the friend's charger does not power up the laptop, I plan to open up the laptop (first time for this particular laptop although I've opened up previous Thinkpads and other laptops literally hundreds of times) and disconnect the battery, push the power button for 20 seconds or so and see if there's a discharge that may correct the circuitry. I know I have done this successfully with older laptops. However, I know that Lenovo and other manufacturers are hard-wiring components and making it more difficult to work on.

Hi Terratexel  , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Those steps that you have tried should be able to resolve a software or configuration issue aside from system restore back to previous working date , uninstalling lenovo setting and companion to check the difference  and lastly factory restore via One Key Recovery (page24). 
 
Try to notice if the battery indicator (page28) would turn on from amber (low charge) to white without turning on the power to check continuos battery charging connection. This is to isolate systemboard failure and /or other daughter boards. 
 
Best to have technical support informed of this scenario while the warranty is up. 
 
Hope this helps answer your query.
Update us how things go.

A:Yoga 900 power supply

I'm a little confused. Are we talking about a power bank or a USB hub? A USB hub is the thing you use to connect thumb drives and other peripherals to a computer. They will charge phones, but that's about it. A few powered USB-C hubs are designed to passthru power to some computers via USB-C, but that doesen't work with every brand of computer. 
 
A power bank, on the other hand, is little more than a battery with USB connectors on it for charging phones and such. 
 
It'd help to know the model number of the Ravpower device you're talking about so I can look up the specs.
 
I've a feeling you're trying to charge a computer that needs a 20V, 3.2 amp charger with a device that only spits out 5V.

I purchased a refurbished ThinkPad S1 Yoga (20CD-00BYUS) a month ago, from eBay (US-based shop) with guarantee active up to April 2015. Everything was fine and satisfying until yesterday. After a normal shutdown the night before, it won't power on anymore. The battery was still about 50% on the last shut down. If I press the power button (normal press or even more than 5 sec press), the "red i dot" will light for about 4 sec and then off. No noise, no other sound. I tried to push the emergergency reset button as instructed on the manual, but it didn't work.I tried also making bootable USB, but also didn't work.Anyone have idea what I have to do before the ultimate option = send it to the customer service for repair? I read some similar problem in this forum and it seems useful to check the MB cable. Is it true?Will it affect the guarantee? Thank you for your help.

A:ThinkPad S1 Yoga won't power on

no. i was the one that provided the MB cable solution. From your description, it does not fit the problem. If the MB cable is disconnected, the led should not even lightup when you press the power button. the laptop should be totally unreponsive, except when the power adapter is unplugged then plugged back in.

About a year has gone by with my trusty Yoga 910. Now; it's not trusty. It will not start period. Charging light? Null when plugged in. Power Button Pressed? Orange / Red Light flashing at Power Port.Hold the power button for 1 Minute? A White LED lights up by the button every 12 seconds.  Not Cool!  Any ideas how to get this bad boy powered up and on again?

A:80VF WON'T POWER ON!!! YOGA 910

Let's hope this is an easy one and it's just not charging. Try a different AC Power Adapter and/or try your current adapter in a different socket elsewhere in the house (different circuit, if possible).

I have set power management so the display goes off ater 60 minutes but it (and sound) still goes off within a couple of minutes. I don't mind the display going off but I would like to still hear programs and program streams. How do I resolve this issue? What other power changes can I make to help resolve this issue? (I am not on battery power.) Thank you.

hi n6neb1,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Can you try to Disable Sleep and Hibernation Settings under the power options and see if the display or the system still goes off after a couple of minutes.
 
 
 
Let me know your findings
 
Cheers

A while back I had wireless mouse plug in the right hand USB hub. While in my laptop bag, the plastic piece broke off and the prongs were bent. Since then that hub has not worked. Yesterday I went to plug in my Yoga and accidentally tried to insert it into the same USB hub. Now the laptop will not power on. The charge light is light when plugged in, but it will not power on with or without being plugged in. The light on the power button comes on for about 4 seconds than shuts off. No sounds from the laptop or lights on the keyboard during that time. It is out of warranty by almost a year. Any suggestions? 

A:YOGA 2.13 20344 will not power on.

Hello and welcome,
 
Have you straightened the pins and made sure they're not touching each other or the socket surround?  This is typical of a power short.

A:Thinkpad Yoga 14 - Does not Power On

Here is an update to the issue. I came across some posts on Best buy Geeksquad and also on this forum (https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Re-Thinkpad-S3-Yoga-14-Random-shut-offs... ) which says that the SW2 switch may not be getting activated. I tried to locate SW2 switch on my laptop but it seems to be missing. PLs see attached picture. I have marked location of teh switch. In the other forum, i can see a tiny switch in that place.I am not sure if Lenovo remoevd that switch in later models or if the switch is missing on my laptop causing it to stop powering on.

If I start up the pc on internal battery then when I connect mains power to the pc (no matter the level left in the battery) when it is on using the battery, the pc freezes until I disconnect power and go back to the internal battery. I have to close the pc entirely to connect to mains power again. But if I start on mains power connected and disconnect to use the internal battery no problem, until I try to reconnect to mains power again. WHY?

The Yoga 3 Pro power adapter looks like a normal USB brick, and the cord looks like USB, except with a kink in the connector at the Yoga 3 Pro end. Can I charge my phone or tablet with it?

A:What's with the Yoga 3 Pro power adapter - it's a ...

Yes the Yoga 3 Pro power adapter is a USB charger too!
 

How does it work?

The special "fool proof" charging cord has two extra pins on the AC adapter end and two extra pins on the Yoga 3 Pro end. The extra pins only make a connection when the fool proof cord is plugged in to the Lenovo charger and the Yoga 3 Pro. When a regular USB cord is plugged into either the charger or the Yoga 3 Pro, it makes a regular USB connection.
 

Can I charge the Yoga 3 Pro with any USB charger?

No. The Yoga 3 Pro requires 2A at 20V, which is what the provided 40W Lenovo AC adapter supplies.
 

Can I charge a USB device with the Yoga 3 Pro AC adapter?

Absolutely. In addition to 2A at 20, the Yoga 3 Pro AC adapter supplies 2A at 5.2V (10.4W), enough to charge a phone or tablet. Works for iPad.
 

Where can I buy spare AC adapters and cords?

AC adapters with cords are sold in the accessories section of the Lenovo store.
 

Where do I find the part numbers for the AC adapter and cord?

Look for AC Adapters In the PDF Yoga 3 Pro Hardware Maintenance Manual.
 

What are the USB specs of the Yoga 3 charging port?

It's a USB 2.0 port. It provides enough power to charge an iPhone, but not enough to charge an iPad. If you want to charge an iPad, try the USB 3.0 port on the right of the Yoga 3 Pro.
 

The Yoga 3 Pro power cable connectors compared with a regular USB connector:
