Yoga 3 14" & Yoga 2 Pro Both Laptops Not Turning O...

Q: Yoga 3 14" & Yoga 2 Pro Both Laptops Not Turning O...

So three weeks ago, I was working on my Yoga 3 14" and popped to get a drink, I came back and the screen was blank, I assumed it had gone to sleep, so hit a key to wake it up. Nothing! The laptop was plugged in, so I know it hadn't run out of charge.After sheer panic, I contacted Lenovo, who told me that my warranty was out by a month, and that I could send it to them to diagnose, and they would tell me how much to fix, then it was up to me if they did or not.One I wouldn't be happy about not having my laptop for a couple of weeks minimum, but also it had all my private information on.I turned to good old google, and stumbled across this forum, and somebody with the same problem.Their solution was to unscrew the back case of the laptop (as mentioned above, my warranty was already out), remove the battery cable, hold down the power button for 30 seconds and reconnect the battery cable.I did this, and low and behold it worked. Fantastic!Only for it to happen twice more that week, and approx twice a week since. Then yesterday my brother contacts me saying his laptop has died, just won't turn on. His is the Yoga 2 Pro, I told him to bring it to mine, and I would try what I had to do to mine, to his, low and behold, the same solution worked. Seeing as I wasn't the first person to have this issue, and I'm guessing others have used the solution but not commented, this is obviously a fault with the Yoga range. I'm hoping that Lenovo can address this issue, as I feel a 13 month old laptop should not be having these problems. Please if you are reading this because you are having the same issues, comment on here. I loved this laptop, but now I am panicking very time I go to turn it on.

I updated my two Yoga laptops this wee on two different days. I noticed that after the update my yoga mouse couldn't pair (connect) to each computer.  There was no issue before the update. Because it happened with both computers, I suspect there is an issue with the update. I came to the Forum and the new support Lenovo system to see if others have the same issue but I don't see any post related to this topic nor an updated driver for the Yoga Mouse. Are you having the same issue? Did you solve it? How?

I bought a yoga 900 six months ago, which bought me into deep trouble. The laptop wall adapter failed twice and lenovo offered replacement which took two months to arrive and after that it failed again and this happend twice.Lenovo officials were kind enough to help me replace laptop after i explained them what happened and complained regarding their poor parts availability for premium laptop variants. So they replaced my yoga 900 with 910 with same top end specs which i used to have in my yoga 900.Yoga 900's big daddy is now facing charging error again. And same old story, loosing data twice and having a yoga 910 which has a charging issue. Have been calling them twice every day and today they are facing technical difficulites in their tech assistance support center . Helpless if you can help in any possible way it would be greatly appriciated. The biggest threatning factor is if i send the laptop for warranty claim it will take 3-4 weeks as they claim, so relying on one laptop is a bad idea after all.

Is there a typo in the specifications?

A:Why other 8 gen laptops use DDR4 RAM but X1 Yoga uses DDR3?

Not a typo.  It's LPDDR3, which is not DDR3L.  It runs at 1.2V (like DDR4) and has a low power state that allows it to sleep much longer.  I discussed it in the review of the x1 Yoga gen2 in the favorites section of this forum.  I also wrote a review of the gen 3 machine, but it was the same as gen2 so I didn't discuss it much.  Differences in speed vs. DDR4 are more theoretical than actual.

Hello, all! After weeks of researching, I finally settled on the X1 Yoga 3rd Gen as the laptop of my choice, but, unfortunately, I've seen so many users complain about Ghost Touching on this. And that really makes me want to not buy it, so, my question is, how prevalent is this issue about Ghost Touches?I read the other thread, but it's a bit outdated, and wanted a more recent response.  Like, are my chances of getting the Ghost Touch high or low if I get the product?  Have they fixed the issue in the new batches, or, is it still a huge risk I face?  Thanks in advance for the responses!

Hello, I've had this laptop for a bit less than a year, so I believe the warranty is valid, but I'd like to know if there's anything I can do myself. I was using it plugged in although it had a full battery. I have an Anker power bank that was nearly out of battery, on which I was charging my phone. I thought it supported pass through charging but apparently it didn't, so my mistake. Upon connecting the bank (and the phone) to my laptop, the laptop immediately shut off and I could tell the lights in the room flashed very quickly. Since then (at writing this less than one day ago), the laptop will not power on. When connected to the wall the small charging light turns on and is white. The power button lights up for a couple of seconds before turning off again when pressed. Fans do not start, display does not turn on nor do the keyboard lights. I figured it may have overheated at first, but the bottom was not hot to the touch. There were no signs of smoke or smells indicating a bad electrical problem. I've tried pretty much just holding the power button for different amounts of time (10sec, 30sec, 1min) and nothing happens. I believe I've done something to the battery but I'd like to know what. Thank you.

I have had the 720 15" for almost a year and just recently been experiencing a problem with the fans. The fans are running even when I shut the lid of the computer and the computer is in sleep mode. The only way for me to stop the fans from running while the computer is in sleep mode is to manually power off the laptop. I am not sure why the fans just start to run even during sleep mode since this was not an issue previously.

I like the height of the screen because I don't have to hunch for the screen to be in my line of vision, but why is there such a disproportionately huge bottom bezel? I always wish that it could all just be screen. It would be nice if it was a 3:2 ratio. I also don't want a screen like the S940 because the screen is too low. It's a reason why I didn't buy a XPS 13 - a friend of mine has to hunch when using it. It looks painful and comedic. I also want to be able to use Windows Ink, and convert the laptop to a tablet.

Hello, I bought my Yoga 900 around september-october last year and it was working great for me without any problems.  However, I came home from work the other day and it would not turn on. I plugged in the AC adapter to charge it and still there was no response. The battery indicator light is not showing any signs of life either. There has been no damage to it, and I had been using it the night before to watch a movie with no problems.  My issue is that I bought it in Canada but I am now living in China, and I'm not sure which steps should be taken to resolve this issue.

Hello,I'm having trouble since I recieved my LENOVO ThinkPad Yoga 14 two months ago.It is on guarantee.I've noticed that the master fan keeps starting even if the computer is not working at full capacity. Sometimes, it starts right after windows as finished booting! And it's a brand new computer, Intel i7 CPU and 8GO of RAM!The fan keeps working then even if I'm only surfing on the internet or working on word.It's REALLY annoying. I feel like this is already an old computer by it's blowing. My old computer, a 5 years old Toshiba Satellite, doesn't blow so much.I've searched over the web and found that LENOVO had released a new UEFI Bios that was suposed to fix this problem. I've installed it and nothing changed! The fan kept on turning on for nothing else than a gmail home page.I've already asked about another problem on the ThinkPad Yoga 14. It's about a background noise on the built in speakers. Here's the link: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Background-noise-on-ThinkPad-Yoga-14-bu...I'm not having a good experience with this Yoga 14. I was looking for professional quality and it is not.Can someone tell me if they have the same problems?What LENOVO is going to do about it?Thanks.Ludovic.

A:ThinkPad Yoga 14 - The Fan keeps on turning on eve...

Hi ludovicfd Can you please post the full model number of you machine and which Windows version are you using?. For example my TP Yoga 14 is "20DM008UUS" and I didn't experienced those issues.  I'm guessing that your machine fan is blowing too much and making huge noise. In my case I can feel more the hard drive noise than the fan, it is not like the HDD is "that loud", but when you are on a quiet enviroment you can feel it "scrattching". Do you want to try first updating any firmware / BIOS on your machine at the latest level ? After that another alternative will be to try to update the driver for the chipset and power. The basic thing for me is to try to update the drivers and firmware this way:- Windows Update- Lenovo System Update- Lenovo Companionand after that search manually for updates on the Lenovo Support site with your specific model number. Sorry, it is trial and error to see if a driver can fix your issue. If after updating the drivers, you think it is hardware issue you should try to contact Lenovo's Customer Support site Regards

Hello, for no reason my Yoga 520 (About a year old) has started shutting down when its on battery within 5 minutes of using it. The battery is always at 100% even when i reboot it and i've never had issues with the battery draining. It isn't just going to sleep either, its totally shutting down with no warnings. I have checked the battery by opening the back and everything looks in place and i have tried going through all the settings to see if its something in there but there isn't- i'd assume if it was shutting down due to power saving it would simply go to sleep not shut the whole system down.  Can someone give me some insight into what might be happening? Thanks,

Hi.  I?m not sure if there?s already forums, which has answers to my problematics, so please don?t feel irritated if there?s already someone, who had the answer in a another forum .  I brought my Lenovo Yoga 720-13ikb for about 8 months ago and until last month, them there wasn?t any problems. But then it suddenly became slow and laggy and I don?t know why. I had tried to update my graphic cards driver to the newest and had recently performed a fresh start via Windows Defended Security Center, but it didn?t help. Do you guys had experience the same problem or do you know what could be a possible cause? I also have to partions on my SSD; a C drive, where Windows 10 and all my programs are and a D drive, where it seems that there?s drivers from Lenovo. Can I combine them to one my drive or should I just leave it as it is? And if I can, them how? Then I?m also curious to figure out, how my laptop overall health is, since I?m a student, so I want it to perform as best as possible. Is there a way to figure out a laptops overall health and how the condition of my battery is?  I hope that you guys can answer my questions or at least notify me of any other topics, which have the answers to my problems .

Hi! I got this laptop december 2014, it worked nice until one day it decided not to turn on, instead of this, the laptop shows sleep-mode behaviour (blinking keyboard, black screen) but without waking up. It initiates randomly, key-combination doesn't work, nor pushing windows key. Additionally, if I turn off by pressing the power button and try to turn on again, it keeps to be in sleeping mode. If is turned off again and the one key recovery is pushed, nothing happens, same sleep-mode reaction. I contacted technnical assistance in Spain, they were really kind and quick taking the call. As suggested I restored the system to fabric condicions (when I got my laptop turned on and through the windows 8.1 menu restoring to initial configuration option). It seemed to solve the problem but just for few re-starts. After using the computer about 10 times (I mean, turning off and turning on the laptop), the same problem appeared. I called again technnical assistance, today they are picking up my laptop at home because I'm still warranty covered, I hope to get my 1600? laptop working well again soon. Just wanted to share this situation with other lenovo users who can be in the same situation. In my case, I'm not using this laptop as a primary computer, that's maybe why it took so long to detect/appear this problem. I already tested updating bios, drivers, energy configuration...

The laptop was working just fine, then all of a sudden shut off on its own. I thought the battery might've ran out, so I plugged it in, tried to power it on but did not power on, even after hours of charge. The white light on the side is lit when plugged in, and the keyboard lights up for 1 second when pressing the power button before shutting back down. I've done the hold the power button for 15 seconds, release, hold for another 15 trick, but all that happens are the fans turning on high-mode for 2 seconds then shutting back off. I'm decently tech savvy and build my own computers, but just not laptops. This says to me the motherboard is still intact and isn't having an issue communicating with parts. If I were to guess on the next thing, it'd be the battery failing. I don't hear any beeps or anything, which usually occurs with CPU errors, and with the screen/system not turning on, I can't diagnose if the m.2 ssd is failing (most likely not the issue). I've found this maintenance manual online to replace parts, but unsure if this is a common issue that others are having, and which part should I look into replacing (if any). I don't have an active warranty on this anymore but prefer to not spend a couple of hundred of dollars at a repair shop. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

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.
