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.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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. 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 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?

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!

Hello, i acquired recently a x220. The thing is, it will only turn on if you remove the battery and the CMOS battery, and, after plugging the AC adapter it will turn on automatically. Other thing is, after you turn on, you can plug the battery back and remove the AC adapter, it will use the battery normally. Someone had this issue? i need some advices.

I don't know, but how fresh is the CMOS battery? If unsure I think I'd try replacing it with a new one first.

Hi guys, sorry to make two posts about the same thing, but I couldn't find a delete button for the other :S

Anyway, I have been looking at a Lenovo Z570 laptop for somebody.
It had a fresh install of windows and all drivers where installed and everything in that sense seems fine. The problem is, when you either try and shut down the laptop, or restart the laptop, the computer seems to power down as normal, the screen goes off etc, but, the power light and everything else stays on, and it stays in this state.

I haven't left it for a long time, to see if it turns off itself, but after about 10minutes, I just have to press the power button for it to turn off.

It cannot be software, as I did a clean install myself to see if it would help, and when the computer restarts halfway through the install, I again have to keep hold of the power button to help it through.

I don't know if this is a hardware fault, or could it possibly be a setting that needs changing somewhere?

Thanks in advance

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).

I took it to a repair shop and they removed the battery and reinserted it and nothing happened.  This is the second major problem I have had with this machine since I bought it. The first issue was a faulty touch screen that required it being sent in for repair. Now 6 months later this power problem shows up. This is extremely disappointing as I felt I did good research before I decided to buy this machine. Any suggestions before I go out and buy something other than a Lenovo product? Thanks!

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. Letīs 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.

If you have a data on the hard drive that is important to you, I would take your computer to a reputable local computer shop and have them try to backup your data.    It is possible that the drop damaged the hard drive, but the fact that it tries to boot at very all is a good sign, so there is a good chance that your data can be backed up.  In a worst case scenario, you may have to replace the hard drive (which are not too expensive), but it may be repairable too, but if you data is irreplaceable, I would not touch it until I had a backup in hand. Good Luck,

My lenovo z50-70 have run in to a bit of a problem and i think it is either due to the motherboard or the power socket cable. When the battery is plugged in aswell as the power chord the little orange battery light is lit but turns of briefly every few seconds. I can't start the pc though.When the battery is not plugged in but the power chord is i still cant turn on the pc. When i try turning it on it seems to start the fan and do the normal routine but for less than a second. Then it turns off and tries to start again a few seconds later with the same result. So it just keeps looping in a state where it is never powered for more than half a second or something like that. I guess it is either the power socket cable that needs to be changed or the motherboard is broken, but is there any way to find out?  Thanks EDIT:Btw, i tried the static electricity thing by holding down the power botton for 30 seconds while there is no battery or cable attached but it didn't help

Hi everyone, I have a H530s, it's about 15 months old but I only used it once or twice a month for a couple of hours each time since I bought it. So it has probably less than 50 hours use on it. About 3 months ago it wouldn't come on after I pressed the power button. Left it for a few weeks as I hadn't time to do anything with it. Tried it again but still dead. Opened it up, all looked normal, tried all connections etc. Still dead. The following week I was about to take it to a pc shop for repair but thought I would plug it in and try one last time, it came on straight away!  Powered up, done all the updates. 3 restarts for installs to complete, ran antivirus checks,  ran diagnostics,  all fine. Computer worked as normal. Next day, dead again. Got a refurbished power supply and swapped it over, still dead. Changed bios battery, still dead. Took ram and graphics card out and tried to power up, still dead. Fast forward two weeks, plugged it in pushed power button and it came on, ran all checks again, all fine. Edited photos, went online, all fine. Turned it off that night, got up and turned it on the next day and it came on first time. Used it as normal to edit photos for a few hours, turned it off when I had finished with it, tried to turn it on the next day and.... Dead again.  No lights, no anything again,  it's like it's not plugged in, so frustrating.  I've also tried different plug sockets and different power cables. Can anyone help... Read more

Hi stuartie007 , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Seems only thing that you have tried is reseating the processor and reapplying thermal paste. 
Usually it would help doing isolation and reverse check. Since wall sockets and cable are already checked too. 
 
Would the Original Power Suppy work on a different board (or volt meter tested) using verified working power cables ?
Try powering on without the hard drive and memory . Any lights or beeps.  
Check if memory and cpu are working on a different PC if available. 
Check on the systemboard for any loose pins on capacitors , burnt marks , bulges. 
 
Since most service center have available spare parts to counter test the device, it is only then that we can say probable systemboard / power port issue if not the other devices.
 
Update us how it goes. 
 
 
Regards
