Q: Thinkpad S1 Yoga - Won't boot, only blinks light t...

So I just purchased a refurbished Thinkpad Yoga, and all was great for a little while. Then I decided to shut it down and set it aside for a few minutes. After coming back, it now refuses to even POST. I tried every power cycle I could think of, in various combinations, and browsed several forums. In the end I found no functional solution. Current Status: System responds in no way other than the 'i' light (in the Thinkpad logo) blinking three times when the charger is connected, or the same when the reset button is pressed while the charger is still connected. Nothing else illicits any sort of beep, light, or otherwise. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks and regards.

I have a feeling you had opened up the back cover to fiddle around with the components (be it a change of SSD or the 3g/4g modem). the symptoms you described sounds exactly like a disconnect MB cable. you can try to open up the back cover, and around the left side, you will see a cable labelled "MB". secure it properly, and the computer should be responsive now.

Hey there, everyone.I've got this 2 year old ThinkPad Yoga 12 that was working fine one day, and then won't boot at all the next. No screen activity, no backlight on keyboard, nothing except for a solid light on the "i" and then nothing. I've tried taking out both batteries, I've tried all kinds of combos of power button pushing, and I tried the reset switch. That caused the light to blink three times and now it's not doing anything. It does blink when I put the power cord in. Is my mobo borked, or is there something I haven't tried? Thank you!!!

Just purchased a Lenovo Yoga 2 13" about 3 weeks ago. I like the PC, but I have an issue. I was using it last night and I shut it down and left it to charge. Today when I went to turn it on the battery light blinks 3 times (1 second on, 1 second off x 3) and that's it. It won't boot at all. Have tried holding the power button for 3 - 30 seconds and pressing the reset button but all I get is the 3 blinks of the battery light (no power button light at all). Is there anything I can do? Hard reset button combo or anything like that to try? Thanks.

Hey all,

Weird one here. Got myself a new graphics card the other day, upgrading from a Radeon x1650 pro, which died after 4 odd years of good service, to the Radeon HD5450, and everything seems to have gone successful except for since installing it, when I press the power button to boot, the PC's power light will blink 7 times and then boot up normally on the 8th blink.

I was kinda in 2 minds about whether or not to troubleshoot this if I'm honest, but figured I might as well in case it could be causing some kinda damage. I can't see any error's appearing, nothing in event logs, as far as I can tell the PSU should be more than capable, everything seems to be performing as expected, it's just these 8 blinks before the system starts to boot.

I've reseated the memory and Graphics and tried booting with a few non-essential components disconnected, which fixed it for the first boot, but the issue reappeared for every boot after that.

As well as my listed components I've also got a PCI NIC (D-link DGE-528T), wireless KBoard + Mouse, USB Wireless Adapter, a SATA DVD RW and a couple of fans (1x80mm, 1x92mm and 1xLED120mm)

...any ideas?

Cheers,
Sean

Hello out there, I wanted to do a fresh post about this issue as I see that no one has resolved it yet. My Lenovo Thinkpad 12's f1 key has an indicator light that is supposed to turn on or off depending on if it is muted or not. However, after upgrading to Windows 8.1 pro, it seems that the light has been on ever since. It could be unrelated, as this is simply when I started noticing the issue, but it's worth noting. Specs:ThinkPad Yoga 12Windows 8.1 Proi5, 128 Gb SSD, 8 GB RAM Troubleshooting already tried:Restarting the machineTurning the machine on / offInstalling Windows updatesInstalling Lenovo updates (note I did not do all of them as some were only recommended and not required and I did not want a bunch of bloat ware on my PC)Plugging in a wired headset and toggling the f1 key

I have a ThinkPad Yoga (Type 20CD) that recently began experiencing a major issue. I was using as usual when it gave me the windows 10 blue screen and told me it was restarting. Upon restarting, it was only able to launch to the boot manager, and when I tried to start normally, it noted that my Hard Drive was not found. I figured it was a seating issue, as I've had those before with the cables for the trackpad, so I opened the bottom and reseated the drive. After doing so, the computer will not power back on. When I press the power button, the ThinkPad logo light comes on for around 3-4 seconds, but then dies. No other sound is made, the fans do not come on, and nothing is displayed on screen. I have tried several suggested fixes (holding the power button for 30 seconds while disconnected from AC power, pressing the emergency reset button, etc) but to no avail. Since this is my primary computer for work and school, I am really looking to get this fixed asap, so any solutions I can do myself would be appreciated.

When It tries to turn back on, the power light flashes once as does the function bar then it turns off. I have to wait at least 5 minutes before I can turn it back on. I have tried the diagnostic software and everything passes with the exception of the Fan. it says "Not Available". I'm unsure if the fan is grayed out by design or if that is where the problem could be. If anyone has come across this before please let me know.

I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate to my new PC (was XP before) and I noticed that the HDD light blinks every second even if the PC's idle. Is that a normal behavior for Windows 7?

A:HDD light blinks every second.

In the early days, yes.

Windows 7 uses Superfetch to quickly learn which are your favourite programs and this task plus indexing means there will be a lot of hard drive chatter, which of course is more noticeable when your computer is idling.

Give it a few days and things will quieten down.

Hey,

Is there something wrong with my laptop? Whenever i plug in the internet cable to my laptop in order to connect to the internet, the DSL light won't stop blinking. Therefore, i can't stay connected to the internet. Nothing wrong with the cable cause I can stay connected w/o any blinks when using my desktop. Is there something that keeps making it this way. And also my laptop is clean from any virus,spyware,adware,trojan so thats not the problem.

Make sure it is the right kind of cable. Many cables can look very similar (virtually identical) but only work in certain envirements.

A friend of mines computer starts, but his green monitor light blinks on and off.(he uses a CRT). Any suggestions?
 

A:Monitor light blinks on and off

The light blinks green? Or orange?
Usually a blinking light means no signal. Meaning the PC is not sending a signal out the video card, meaning something on the PC is trashed.

Easiest thing to do is test the monitor real quick on another PC that IS working. If the monitor works, then something is wrong with the PC. And you'll have to troubleshoot it from there.

But this will get you started. Chances are good it's not the monitor that is the problem.

When I sign out of my user profile on my 2 Acer laptops and then click shut down, the computer goes black indicating that it is shutting down. However, the power light blinks until it shuts down completely. I don't know if it's a hardware issue or what but when hibernation is disabled, it tells you its shutting down and the power light doesn't blink (instead it shuts down normally). This is not a UEFI BIOS, it is a Legacy BIOS therefore it doesn't have the option to enable or to disable fast startup. This occurs on my Acer Aspire 5250 and Acer Aspire 5749 laptops. My Acer desktop doesn't do this, but it has a UEFI BIOS.

Hey I'm really after some help here, my problem is as follows:

I bought a new Alienware M17x laptop from Dell a few days ago and my internet connection is fine (so it seems), however i have bumped into this issue that i simply cannot get my head around.

When i try to log into the game WoW on my laptop (which is connected wirelessly to the router) my DSL light blinks red and disconnects me, its very frustrating. The only thing i think it could be is something to do with a packet overflow?

Ive checked the connections and rebooted my modem, I'm really on my last leg here, i have no idea whats wrong with it.

I played WoW on my old desktop PC on the same connection for almost 2 years and this problem occured very rarely, but it did happen a few times, but on the laptop it happens on a good 80% of my logins. I can't understand why the changing of the computers would cause an issue, so i guess it has to be the router itself?

I have a Bigpond router and the gateway is a 2701HGV-W. My internet speed is 8mb and i am not capped. The router supports wireless connections and i am running windows 7 on a virus free brand new laptop.

Please somebody help me, or post if u have the same issue. Cheers.
 

A:DSL light blinks red when logging into WoW (plz help, desperate)

Given that the router apparently disconnects, I'd try these two steps. It appears that the router is disconnecting. The other possibility would be an ISP issue with the connection, but I'd try this first.

Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Well, the first thing to do is to make sure your wireless is secure. If you use WPA/WPA2 encryption with a strong random key, that will do the job.

I have an HP Pavilion 15-p043cl with the same problem. The power/charge light blinks white three times when you press it. The laptop never actually powers up. I've tried with and without the battery and numerous other power adapters. It even blinks while the battery is removed, which is strange because the I've opened up the case and measured 19.5 volts on the motherboard, which is why the light even flashes in the first place.
 
The customer said the computer felt really warm, and now it's not working and this is happening. My only guess is that one of those hundreds of small components on the motherboard died/shorted out. So this seems to be a common issue with some HP models.

I doubt anyone here remembers, but I made a topic here last month regarding a laptop I was attempting to fix. Basically, someone spilt soda over it and tried to repair it, but after that failed he gave it to me and told me that if I could fix it, I could keep it.

At that point, the problem was when I turned it on, the screen would stay black, but I could hear noises and the power light slowly flashed. I noticed that there was no memory in it though, and since the issues seemed to reflect that, I decided to buy some ram and hope that it was going to be my only problem.

Well, unfortunatly, it wasn't. Now the problem has changed that the power light flashes faster than before, but the screen still remains blank.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be?

EDIT: On a second test, it appers that the flashing is the same speed as before. Also, when I attempt to turn it on, the ligh will stay on for a second and I can almost hear the laptop starting up, but that stops when the light begins to blink.

My G72 will not start.  I have tried all the tricks for unplugging power cable, battery, holding the button down, etc. I have pulled RAM, verified power to the system board using a voltmeter.... No matter what I try, when I put the battery in and hook it to power, then press the power button, the AC power LED blinks three times.  It does this if the power is not hooked up; it does not do it if the battery's removed (with AC power). I have tried two separate AC adapters, known working ones. I have voltage at the system board, so I don't think it's the power connector.  The system responds only with the 3 blinks when I hit the power switch. What do the three blinks mean? I can find nothing online specific, and it's out of warranty.

Guys,

My Toshiba Laptop running Windows 8.1 runs great! However, about every four to five months the Power button blinks when lifting the cover. When I press the Power Button, it boots fine. Why does the Power button blink?

A:Power Light Blinks on Toshiba Laptop?

I think it blinks to show it's in sleep mode and pressing the power button wakes it up. You can test this by putting the laptop to sleep manually.
There's a setting in Control Panel > Power Options where you can change what closing the lid does, try setting it to Shutdown then check the power light goes out completely. You can change it back to Sleep afterwards.
