Hello I have a problem with my lenovo g510. When I try to turn it on everything is ok, but it hangs on black screen. I hear hdd that is working but after few minutes it stops. The cooler is working on the start but after few seconds stops. Power and charging leds are on. After few minutes laptop turns off and is very hot.

Hy guys,I'm really desperate and I'm in mood of destroying this fine piece of laptop in Lenovo store just because of stupid whitelist which restricts me of using egpu with this laptop. I own Lenovo G510 ( i3 4000m,8 GB DDR3,Intel HD 4600,SSHD 1000 GB ) and I'm really satisfied with speed,mobility,battery,quality for price etc. I came with idea of adding external GPU with EXP GDC Beast from banggood.com,Dell 220p adapter and Gainward GTX 660. Lets put this simple,I have tried every possible way of enabling from DIY EGPU setup 1.30,removing wifi card and putting to sleep,enabling after BIOS post ( I connect then cable to egpu and ofcourse freeze ),no way. Obviously modding bios is also restricted due to eprom write protection and only way is trough buying programmer kit from ebay. The irony is that Lenovo G500 works very good with EGPU just by looking on techinferno and how many users are using egpu with Lenovo G500. http://forum.techinferno.com/diy-e-gpu-projects/6578-implementations-hub-tb-ec-mpcie.htmlI'm thinking of selling laptop but I dont want to sell because its excellent laptop for me and in that price range I wont get so good design quality,8 gigs of ram,silent and fast HDD ..The EGPU is tested and fully functional,I almost started crying when one forum member from another forum connected to Dell and for Dell it was plug and play. Summary,I tried every possible way of bypassing whitelist throghout Windows sleep,trying after bios post...

I bought this laptop in 2014, and had a great time with it. After roughly 2 years, the GTX860M died... booting up would result in a complete freeze before i could even log in. No BSOD whatsoever, just a complete freeze. Yes, i even reinstalled windows multiple times and tried to reinstall the drivers in safemode, nothing helped the situation. I could get around this by disabling the nvidia gpu in the BIOS, which was tricky, since the BIOS itself would freeze aswell after roughly 15 seconds.Then, the past few days my laptop screen would disable itself (it would just shut off, only my second monitor would work and hold all my windows, as if my laptop screen wasn't there). It also wouldn't boot properly from time to time either, the keyboard would light up (sometimes i couldn't change its brightness, and sometimes i could) but the screen would never turn on. I did some research and what seemed to help others was holding down the powerbutton for 10 seconds (didn't help), some even unplugged the battery and drained the system of power (which i did aswell, also didn't help). After that, the system would refuse to fire up at all. I can't get to the BIOS, the keyboard won't light up, i can't get to anything through the button next to the power button (forgot it's name). The power button just lights up for 5 seconds, and that's it. I checked the motherboard to see if anything blew, haven't found anything so far. i tried to switch the places for the RAM, doesn't help eit...

Hey, thanks for reading this! I'm completely new to the forums, and am here for this question only, as I'm at a loss of what to do. My Lenovo Z70-80 has been dead for months now for a second time. The first time, my dad and I figured it was the charging port, and he replaced it. It worked again for a while, and then the same thing happened. Nothing had been done to damage the AC adapter or the charging port itself this time, so recently we ordered a replacement AC adapter to try and see if that was the problem, as the one we had had been chipped away a bit. I just got the package today, and plugged the PC in. immediately when I pressed the power button, it started up, but after a few seconds, it simply shut down. I've tried starting it up again a few times more, and sometimes it does nothing at all, sometimes it does the same thing as the first time. One thing I noticed was the occasional blinking orange light at the front of the PC, which started up most times I tried the power button (without the screen reacting).  In conclusion, I hope this made sense as I'm pretty much illiterate when it comes to computer issues, but I hope someone is able to help me out on this. It's been a major inconvenience to have this laptop dead, especially right now with college applications, studying, research, etc. Thank you so much for reading this far!

Hello, Since two months or so I can't use my Lenovo G510 properly, because it keeps crashing and acting strange. I updated the drivers as far as I know and the harddrive scan told me theres nothing wrong with my system. I did a virus check and couldn't find anything. I get blue screens with a diversity of errors, the system sometimes deletes my games, programs or bootes in some sort of "safe mode" in which my laptop looks like it has been taken back to the fabric configuration and has deleted everything (after restarting it's back to my current desktop , and I get all my programs and files back like nothing happened), and there are times in which my system won't boot at all. I start, it loads 5 seconds and turns off. I am clueless and at the point of throwing the thing through the window. I really hope someone here can tell me what might be wrong and what to do to fix this problem. I made some photos of the crashes and put one of them in here so you can see what those errors are. It's dutch, I'm sorry for that but the text says: "There's a problem with this computer and it has to be rebooted. Errordata will be collected, then the computer will be restarted." Sincerely,Graciousgirl.

A:Lenovo G510 will not boot

Hi Midohert,
 
Welcome to the Forums     
   
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with system not powering on in your Lenovo G510 laptop.
 
Try connecting different adapter and battery if available, also check this battery and adapter in other system and check for the issue, if still the issue persists in other battery and adapter, then it might be issue with the motherboard. Please visit the nearest service center for further details.
 
Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if the issue persists!

Samsung 850 Pro specifications matches and should work. Since this is a third party option we just cannnot guarantee 100 % functionality. I am also not able to get any confirmed upgrade from fellow members that done it similar to this discussion. 
 
As always advised during upgrade, when buying 3rd party parts to always check the return options just in case. The linked post would also provide you further reference about the issue.
 
I hope this helps answer your query.

When I tried to restart the computer, it booted to the desktop but before anything could be done it quickly shut off again, and now wont restart at all (no lights or anything).

A:Lenovo 3000k Vista, shuts off, now wont start up

Hi loserspearl,

It could be either a software fault(malware) or a PSU fault. You could boot into the BIOS first and see if the issue appears there aswell. Just press DEL during startup and you will be presented with a blue/white screen. Have a look at the temperatures as you see if the computer does the same thing again.

You can also try to boot into safemode (Press F8 during startup) and see if it does the same thing. Let us know the results and I'll get back to you with further instructions.

A:Lenovo G510 removal of dust

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
According to your model's User Guide the replacement of the hard drive, memory or wireless card is considered CRU activities.  In otherwords those parts can be serviced by the consumer which means you can also remove the back cover without fear of voiding warranty.  Since the fan is now accessible when the cover is removed.... have fun cleaning.  If you use compressed air to clean,  remember to use short bursts of air as prolong blasts may damage the fan's bearings.
 
For your reference, here is a link to that User Guide......

Hello dear Lenovo community, I've been having a problem regarding an HDD caddy for about two months now. After deciding I wanted to make my G510 a little bit faster, I bought a Kingston 240GB SSD (don't think the brand is needed) to put instead of the SSHD I previously had. Of course 240 GB is not that much. I only wanted it for the Windows partition. So, I also bought an HDD caddy to put it instead of the ODD (Optical Disk Drive). So far so good. Everything came and I made the swap. The SSD inside the original place of my SSHD and then I removed the ODD to put the HDD caddy with the SSHD in it. The problem is, it is not recognized when booting. The laptop just hangs/freezes at the Lenovo logo. I tried to switch places (SSHD in its original place and SSD in HDD caddy) and to my suprise, both of the drives were recognized, but I could not format my SSD and access it whatsoever. I discovered a workaround where I put the ODD tray back in, start Windows from the SSD, then while booted and loaded, I take the ODD tray out and insert the HDD caddy with the SSHD. Then, Intel Rapid Storage recognizes it and my drives are correctly shown. The problem is when I shutdown the laptop and turn it back on, I go back to my first problem, which is freezing Lenovo logo. The only way I can work with this, is if I just restart or put the laptop in Stand by. Even when I put it in Stand-by, sometimes the SSHD gets disconnected and I have to do the ODD tray thing again.

My wife's laptop has some issues so I decided to take a look and found a couple of things. No wizard here, but most of them I've been able to fix except for the fact that in the device manager the SM bus controller is not reckognized. Now I've looked and found that I'm supposed to install an intell chipset driver, but the problem is that the install fails every time. As soon as it tries to install CSVer.dll I'm getting the error message that the file can't be copied. Anyone any ideas how to fix this?
