Lenovo L440 - Turn on slow

Q: Lenovo L440 - Turn on slow

Hi, I have a Lenovo L440 and when I turn on my laptop, its take more less 5/6 secs to turn on the screen and show me Thinkpad screen. I compared my laptop whith a same model in my work and I saw that the laptop in my work turn on faster than my laptop (2 secs). Can you tell me if 5/6 it is normal or how I can improve this? I have the last version of the BIOS and I buy a SSD and it is frustrating that the laptop take much time in turn on the screen when windows start very fast. Thanks!,Mati

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.

Hello everyone, about a month ago my lenovo laptop charger died so I ordered one straight away, it took a month to arrive and in the period I used the laptop a couple of times. The battery died so much it got to a critical battery splash screen and wouldnt boot to windows. So for two weeks I left the laptop in my cupboard, when the charger finally arrived I plugged in the laptop AND nothing... There was no light on top of the "i" and the laptop doesn't turn on, I've done the "30 second trick" already and other stuff bun none of them work. Please leave a suggestion and thanks.

Hi Ms,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
We understand that your display is not working in your L440 laptop.
 
Issue might be with the LCD cable. Since the external display is working fine there is no issue with the motherboard.
 
Note: As per the Lenovo policy, the warranty will be void if the laptop is dismantled by yourself.
 
We would like you to visit the nearest authorised Lenovo service centre to purchase the power supply.
 
Service Center link - https://support.lenovo.com/in/en/contactus/findaprovider
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!
 
Best Regards,
 
Poojitha.

Hello guys, can you tell me if it is normal this situation? When I connect the chager the display turn off for few seconds. It is the same situation when I disconnect the charger. Can you tell me if it is normal? I update the BIOS with the last version and I have the last version of the video card. Power plans are the same for both situations too.

Hello,I recently bought my school laptop from my school since I am graduating and I was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the screen to a more angle friendly screen, like an IPS panel also with higher resolution (FullHD). Is it possible and can any of you recommend a panel. The laptop in question is a Thinkpad L440 and the screen resolution is 1600x900.

Hi,I have replaced CD-ROM by HDD Caddy with SSD (Samsung 850 EVO 250GB) in my Lenovo ThinkPad L440 (20ASS3GT0) as a second storage device (not one with the OS). When I'm trying to start the system, I'm getting a message "Configuration changes - restart the system." and the system reboots again and again. What is more, I can't access the BIOS any more - pressing F1 does not work. Updating to the newest version of BIOS (1.85) does not help. After removing HDD Caddy everything works fine. I have tried some of the configurations below: Removed the battery, pressed the power button for 10-15 sec. and rebooted with AC Adapter connected - still got message "Configuration changes - restart the system."Removed HDD from standard SATA port and connected it using HDD Caddy - cannot boot into the system. There is no message "Configuration changes...", HDD is detected but it is not on the list with bootable devices (there is only one option to boot over the LAN).HDD Caddy connected with no storage device - boot into the system with no problem.The problem is, that I need two storage devices - one for the OS and second one (using HDD caddy) for another data. Could anyone help me to solve that issue?

Hello. I have Lenovo L440 laptop. As I remember BIOS is Phoenix. When I turn on my laptop, it makes 1-3-3-1 (1 signal, pause, 3 signals, pause, 3 signals, pause, 1 signal). I could find in Internet what those signals mean. I could find only 1-3-3. Tell me please, what is wrong with my laptop? Thank you. 

A:Lenovo L440 makes 8 signals (1-3-3-1)

Hello and welcome,
 
From the (English) Hardware Maintenance Manual - ThinkPad L440, L540
 
One short beep, pause, three short beeps, pause, threemore short beeps, pause, and one short beep
 
Shut down the computer immediately. Ensure thatmemory modules are installed correctly. If they are, andyou still hear the beeps, have the computer serviced.
 
That would seem to indicate memory issues.

Hi, I started having weird after-wake up BSODs (bugcheck: 0x00000133) last week. I don't recall installing or udpating any software (other than Windows update) nor changing hardware configuration.
The BSODs are not regular and don't happen after every wake up, just circa every second third. It seems that they're slightly more likely to happen more times in a row but other than that there doesn't seem to be any way to predict them. Once a BSOD happened during normal use and not immediately after wake up (was about 2 mins after wake up).
The exact way they occur is following: Laptop gets waken up, is normally responsive for about 1-4 seconds, freezes, and after variying amount of time (sometimes seconds, sometimes minutes) fall into BSOD.
Event viewer (system logs) doesn't show anything with the exception of some printer-related problems that have - however -timespamp indicating that they-re after-crash problems. There're no System logs with timestamp in between wake up and crash and the after-reboot ones doesn't provide any useful information.
The laptop runs Windows 8.1 x64 with Ubuntu in dualboot which seems to be unaffected (can't say for sure, don't use it as much).
Crash dump, minidump, and log files: http://1drv.ms/1Cn7RMd

Hi there! I am having problems with my Lenovo s10-3t. I was still able to use it before it didn't turn on. I used it at school and when it notified me that I only have 10% battery left, I turned it off till I reached home and charged it from 11:00pm-1:00am (which I usually do). When I turned it on that morning around 9:30am, it won't turn on anymore. With battery on, the battery indicator will just blink once and will not continue booting. Not even the power indicator nor the hdd indicator will lit. The screen is not displaying anything, no logo, nothing.. Please help me. I did all the suggestions I've searched here in the internet but nothing happens... Thanks!

I was using it and it said there was a problem and it needed to reboot.  When I press the power button, it starts to turn on, shows the lenovo welcome screen then just gives a black screen and doesn't do anything else.  This happened last week too, and it eventually started working again but there's definitely something not right.  Please, I have no idea what I'm supposed to do. I have lots of important documents on my computer I need and haven't backed up! Thank you in advanceNicky

This laptop won't turn on screen does not even flicker. The power light does come on and the battery does charge. I know this because the light blicks orange if it is charging and eventually goes back to white when complete. I have replaced the mother board and the lcd with absolutely no change. I have removed battery power over night and no change. I've removed both battery and cmos battery overnight and no change. The only reaction other than the power indicator light and charging lights is that the pc will beep when the power adapter plug is inserted or removed. Also, I cannot turn the power off. If i deprees the power button for about six seconds it wil turn off and turn right back on again anfter i release it.

So about 1 month ago, my sister was coming from the kithcen upstairs down with her lenovo laptop in sleep mode, she sent me to bring her charger and so i did. We then plugged thecharger in and tried to turn on the laptop. All that happened was the key board lit up and the cpu fan turns on for about 3 seconds, and the laptop does this in a loop until the battery dies. But it does not do this if you disconect the battery and just use the plug, i have tried so many thing, i have tried disconecting power and battery and holding power for 30 seconds, and then pluging it back in. There was only one issue prior to this and it is that the usb 3.0 port that is mounted on the mother board is broken.Note That the charging light does not turn on. My theory's1. The battery is broken, i did test the battery and on the volt measure it said open loop.(likely)2. The usb 3.0 somehow fried part of the mother board, but not all of it since the cpu fan, power light, and the keyboard still work.(unlikely since a fried mother board nothing works)3. The charger port is broken.(unlikely since the battery does charge, but the laptop does not turn on without a bettery).

Hey Guys, I picked up a Yoga 3 just before xmas and its been running well until just recently. I have noticed that if I shut the machine down and then return to it later it will often not turn back on. Pressing the power button will cause the keyboard to light up but nothing else. After a random amount of time and attempts it will turn on. Whilst trying the light on the power button will remain on. I have contacted online support and they want me to post the laptop to Germany for them to take a look but this wil leave me without my work computer for some time. This problem is also random in that it doesnt always happen. I worry they will try a few times and not be able to reproduce the issue and post it back. Any one any idea of what it might be? I searced the forum and found similar stories but no real advice as to what it might be or a fix. I have updated the BIOS, which didnt seem to help.  Thanks guys

hi anabella1234,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If you're already installed the driver below then it's likely that you have a different type of wireless card installed 
 
WLAN Driver (Atheros, Broadcom) for Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
 
This may also explain why you still have Network Controller entry in the device manager --which is your wireless adapter.
 
In this case, can you follow this guide on how to find the hardware ID of the adapter or send me a PM regarding your machine serial number so I could check the brand and type of the wireless card.
 
 
Let me know your findings.
 
Regards

A:Lenovo Y50-70 wont turn on at all

Hello there, I just got the same problem this morning with my Y50-70. It suddenly turned off while I was working with Win7, just a black screen, power off. So I tried to power it on again and it failed, simply no reaction at all. The only thing working is the battery LED when the AC connector is plugged in. My Y50-70 is only 5 weeks old and worked without any problems until today ;-( I called the support at Lenovo and they told me to "hard reset" by pulling the power cable and pressing the power button for 20 seconds....no success at all. Finally after several tries I decided to send my Y50-70 back to Lenovo. It seems to be a hardware problem. Lenovo offer 2 years of warranty for the Y50-70, because of that I decided not to open it. Let´s see how long ist takes until I have my - hopefully working- Y50-70 back.Perhaps you have more luck than I.Greetings from Germany!

I bought a Yoga 700 and after a couple of months it stopped charging and wouldn't turn on. When pressing the power button the light flashed amber a couple of times but that was it. I returned it for repair and the repair notes said the BIOS had been upgraded and it was working again. Unfortunately the person performing the repair sliced the top of the laptop with what looks to have been a Stanley knife but they didn't say anything. I returned it and got a replacement. Now, a few weeks later I have exactly the same symptoms with the new Yoga 700. Is this a known problem with the 700 because it seems too much of a coincidence? I'm probably just going to ask for my money back unless someone can tell me a quick fix? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I returned, the battery has run out and the laptop was turned off. So I plugged the laptop and I leave it charging, but when I try to use the laptop again, it's dead.The only thing that it does, after I press the Power button, is turn on the battery and power lights (both in white), and after seven seconds, they both turned off and that's it.What can I do? Open the laptop, take out the battery, what? Any help is welcomed!! Chris

Hello.The problem is that when I try to shut down the system it seems to work. Windows 8.1 exits, the screen turns off but the fan is still working, and probably so is the HDD. It does not matter how long I wait, nothing changes. The only way to turn it off ultimately is to hold POWER button but this will damage my HDD.I hope you guys have any solution for this issue.Thank you in advance.
