Yoga Y710 with Intel 660p SSD wont turn on without AC adapter plugged in

Q: Yoga Y710 with Intel 660p SSD wont turn on without AC adapter plugged in

My original SSD died. I installed an Intel 660p but it will not power on unless I plug in the AC adapter. If I remove the 660p, it will turn on without the AC adapter so I know it's not the battery. I can't believe Lenovo blocked third party SSD?! Is there a way I could get around this issue?

Preferred Solution: Yoga Y710 with Intel 660p SSD wont turn on without AC adapter plugged in

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.)

A: Yoga Y710 with Intel 660p SSD wont turn on without AC adapter plugged in

I tried resetting the bios to default and also turning off secure boot. No go. Also with the 660p installed, when I hit the power button, I just see an orange light blinking 2-3 times from the charge port.

Hi,My Y260 is having a weird trouble which I believe is hardware/motherboard related : whenever I plug the power supply, the CPU steps down to 0.38GHz... This is 1/6th of the full 2.3GHz the i5-6200U can provide, and the CPU is stuck at 16% use, which is 1/6th of 100%.If I unplug the AC adapter then the machine shuts down as if it had no battery. If I start it without an AC adapter then the CPU uses the full 2.3GHz and everything is fine, until I plug it in !I already tried disabling Intel Speedstep or any power saving stuff onto the BIOS, and I ran every Lenovo hardware tests and everything seems OK. Do someone have any idea about what I could try ?If none, I will have to call Lenovo (46 days of warranty left !) but I would prefer not I need my Thinkpad for my job. Thanks,Boris (from France so excuse my english)

New X1 Yoga 3rd Gen, BIOS 1.24. Screen is set to turn off after 10 minutes (# of minutes is arbitrary). Sometimes it does, sometimes it stays on indefinitely. It DOES reliably turn off screen under battery power. Totally unreliable when plugged in. Pretty annoying. Is this a known issue and is there a fix?

My parents have just bought a new Toshiba Satellite C855 -1J1, and it wont work unless it is plugged in. If it is on and you pull the power adapter out or in any way disconnect the power it will turn off. If it is turned off it will not turn on without the power adapter being plugged in.

I have checked to make sure the battery is inserted correctly and it is. The status of the battery is also showing that it is at 100%, but it will not work at all in anyway with just its battery and you can only get it to work with an external adapter to power it.

Before I take it back the shop does anyone have any idea what it may be.

Regards

A:New laptop wont turn on unless plugged in

I would take it back. Sounds like a bad connection somewhere.

What you can do is check all the pins of the battery and battery plug-ins whether they look OK - but that's about all the diagnostics that come to mind.

I have a y710 Cube and ran into an issue where I needed to install a fresh copy of windows 10.  To do this I contacted Microsoft, from whom I bought the computer.  (Two month old computer)  The OS iso they told me to use did not include the lenovo pre loaded software, which is not the end of the world I guess.  But the cube has LED lights on the front that I can no longer control without one of the pre loaded apps according to Lenovo tech support.  They told me since I did not contact Lenovo to reload my OS I voided the warranty and have to pay them $70 to do another clean install!!  That seems ridiculous.  All I want to do is turn the LED lights off.  Does anyone know of any work around or third party app that can turn these lights off?

I am on windows 7 64bit, I have listed in my speaker system 4 different devices

this is the order they are listed and their status also

Sharp HDMI - Disabled (unplugged) - I have to manually enable it when I want to plug my laptop to my tv

Speakers - Ready - Default Device

Headphones - Disabled, unplugged

Headset Earphones - Default Device when plugged in (otherwise not visable on list)

Here is the issue

If I were to plug in the Earphones Headset Earphones without the Sharp HDMI being disabled (but still unplugged) my laptop for some reason selects both Headset Earphones and Speakers, some sound comes out the speakers, others the Headset Earphone

If I disble the Sharp HDMI then when I plug the Headset Earphones in it swaps as it should to the Headset Earphones making them the default device and only the Headset Earphones work so when I pull the Headset Earphones plug it automatically switches back to the Speakers, this is how I want it to work but without having to disable the HDMI in order to do it.

would anyone hazard a guess to what is going on here?.. thanks

A:Speakers wont turn off when headphones are plugged in

In most cases (all that I've seen), the HDMI is inactive unless an HDMI cable is plugged into the PC.

The normal (and usual) speaker/headset mode is the speakers are muted when a headset is plugged in. Some RealTek control panel's will allow reconfiguring this so that either the speakers are muted (normal) when headset is plugged in or speakers are still active when a headset is plugged in.

If you haven't done it, install the latest AMD (ATI) drivers for the HD3450 and see if that makes any difference. Also check your RealTek HD Audio Manager (assuming you have one) to see if there are any speaker options that could affect what is happening. There are different RealTek versions, depending on the PC or motherboard vendor (in your case you should be using ASUS supplied RealTek drivers).

Basically,

I recently found out my router username and password and so was opening a few ports for some software im using.

I accidently went to the unpn tab and there was a list of port numbers which were already there (around 7 or so) anyway, Instead of clicking cancel to leave the tab I clicked done and they all vanished ......

I panicked, clicked back on the browser and they were there again.

I then took a screen shot to note down all the numbers,

I then quit my browser, went back into the router settings, clicked unpn and nothing .....

ok,

so recently I was using my laptop which is not directly connected to the wireless router and accidently pulled out my 'marvell yukon' network adapter, I use it to help with the internet when im near a plug socket.

And then I clicked refresh page and 'page could not be displayed', my network lost connection,

now when I go to my router settings it says connected with limited access.

So the only way I can connect to the internet is when Im plugged in with my marvel yukon thing.

Is this somehting to do with my unpn settings vanishing ??

also I have updated my network card drivers.

Perfectly up to date!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated !!

kind regards, Jack

- I have ThinkPad Yoga 260 (20FES0LQ00).- Power button does nothing.- Plugging the charger does nothing..- Hit the reset button on bottom. No change. Any ideas on how to best troubleshoot this? My guess is 1) bad power switch (not sure how likely that is), 2) shorted battery (seems highly unlikely) and 3) bad motherboard. Additional questions: 1) If I buy a used motherboard, will I need a new copy of Windows 10? Isn't the windows key stored on the motherboard so I would that key still work? 2) Can I upgrade to an I7? The currents system has a I5-6200U. Is it worth it? It appears that both use the same heat sink. 3) There is an listing on EBay for the same sytem I have (same type, different version) without a hard drive. Can I just install my drive in the new system without buying and installing a new copy of windows?  Help!

Hello, I have an issue with my laptop as it is not turning on. When plugging in the charger cable, the small light indicates that it is plugged in. When I tried opening it by pressing on the switch on button, the light lit up but did not open. The laptop's battery is not external hence i cannot remove/ and plug it again without opening the laptop personally and that would void the warranty. I want to avoid sending it repair since they take a  very long time to fix and return the laptop and I need it for daily use. Help please !

I purchased a Lenovo Yoga 3.14 laptop from Best Buy about a year and a half ago. Unfortunately I have had to send it out twice so far because the keyboard stopped working. It was within warranty, so this cost me $0. Now, the computer won?t turn on at all (just 4 months after my warranty expired). I went to best buy to have the computer looked at and was told it may be a big problem. The computer has no physical or water damage of any kind. Sending it out for testing and repair it will likely cost me over $500. The computer was originally $800 and with its record of needing repairs I don?t think it would be wise to repair it just to have it break again (as it does once every six months.) I am finding it very difficult to get any support information from lenovo itself. I have never heard of a computer breaking so quickly and so often. I sent them feedback, but I dont actually know if they will contact me about it. Has anyone else had success using 'feedback' or over the phone? I love this computer and I would buy it again if I knew it wouldnt have these issues or they would give me some guarantee or discount. Thanks for any help!

I have a Lenovo Yoga Pro and have been using the wireless with no problems.
 
This evening I was on my computer and watching a video.  Then suddenly I had no connection.
 
I went to log on again, and found that the Wireless Connections showed as "Unavailable".  Now I know there is a connection since I am currently on it on another computer.

Hey guys, I have used all my SATA ports on my motherboard (4 HDs on them), but i wanted to use my dvd burners, so I bought a IDE to SATA connector, to use on the DVD burners, the PC turns on and boots fine, but my monitor LG L192WS wont turn on, with the connector connected, what could be the problem.

A:monitor wont turn on after installing ide to sata adapter

Here is my confusion:
If the monitor will not turn on, how do you know the PC "boots fine"?
What do you see? Are there any error messages? How could you tell if there is no output on the monitor?

Do you mean that you eventually hear the Windows startup sound, but with nothing on the screen?

If so, then your new device may be conflicting with your video card. I assume if you remove it, all works normally?

If this is so, then try installing the new card in a different slot on the motherboard.

Let us know what is going on here!

Hello, I have a Lenovo Yoga 900 and it recently wont turn on.  The issue is being caused by the computer not recieving power.  I tried charging it the last time that I was able to use it, and it didnt recieve power.  I tried restarting a few times and now it is stuck and wont turn on. I have researched the issue a bit, and I think the difference with mine is that it doesnt light up the light near the power button, the computer is totally dead.  I have tested the power brick, and I was able to charge my phone with it, so that worked.  I inspected the cable, and that appears to be in excellent shape.  I have never dropped the computer and it has no water damage. Another issue that may or may not be related is that one of the speakers has been on the fritz for the last few months.  Most the time only one speaker works... the left one, and the right one has only worked for about a week over the last year or so.  I have also tested with headphones and only the left ear phone works.   I bring this up because it appears that there is a board in the computer that appears to have audio and power on the same part, and I am wondering if this is what is failing.  I would appreciate any advice because I really like this computer and would like to work with it again. Lenovo Yoga 900 i7 512gb Thank you
