    Thank you for responding.. the bottom of the computer was hot and it was stored in a carrier even though it was turned off. Yes, it's under warranty and Circuit city is offering to exchange it back for a brand new one. Just curious if this brand is reliable like Circuit City says it is. Had problems w/Toshiba. Hewlett Package was not recommended saying they have a lot of problems with them. I want to stay in the $700 price range.. Do you have any recommendations? Apparently, this computer model is brand new.

    Kind of a crappy solution. If it's brand new it should be under warranty, right? Did you buy it retail? Also, where was it hot, all over, the battery, the screen...? Does the screen display anything (is just the backlight out) or is the screen just black all the time?

Have you installed the Lenovo EnergyCut drivers? Without it, laptop may not work properly and turns extra hot. Try letting it cool down before you try again.

Lonovo ideapad tuns on but doesnt work


You turn on but it won't boot to your OS? or powers on (i.e LED power light comes on) but you get no display at all, not even Lenovo logo?

If it's not booting try booting from your windows CD/DVD and running a start up repair. This is a guide for Windows 7 but should be very similar process for Windows Vista.
http://pcsupport.about.com/od/toolsofthetrade/ss/windows-7-startup-repair.htm

If you get no display at all (Not even a Lenovo splash screen) and just lights, try popping your battery out and power the system up on mains only. If this works, pop your battery back in, it should be begin to charge. You laptop should continue to work from now on. This is a problem that occurs from time to time on any laptop and is cleared this way.
If removing the battery doesn't work I would try removing/re-seating/swapping out RAM.

Let me know how it goes, I may be able to help further.

My lenovo z500 has a screen brightness issue. It very dim and it won't turn up no matter what I do?


Hi, I had this problem also and I don't know why, but Lenovo Ideapad Z500 seems to have some compatibilities issues with a new Intel video card.
So, what you need to do is rolling back the HD intel video card driver to the previous version OR go to the following path: D:\drivers\VGA\Intel\x64\9.17.10 and press Setup to install the old driver again.
That solved my problem. It's a shame that I can't upload this driver in my laptop.

Lenovo Ideapad Y510 won't turn on or off


try removing the battery and removing the adaptor press and hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds then let got this will power drain your system board noy turn the system on using the battery only without any adaptors to charge or power the system, try turning the system on if the system turnes on leave it turned on for a couple of hours then conenct your sysem adaptor monitor if the battery light and the battery indicator on the lower right of the screen in windows woll indicate that the system is chargin if it is then I believe everything should be fine the blue indicator is for your system if it is blue then your system is turned on and has power if it turned orange and blnking then the battery will be more likely be almost out of juice or may need charging.

Lenovo netbook wont turn on. It is brand new, and ...


hi! just a tip if its a brand new one try to isolate the problem check if it can actually run by removing the battery just by the ac adapter if still doesnt work then probably you have to charge the battery first if it still doesnt charge then probably there is somethin wrong with the power board. i suggest you call your lenovo tech support for further assistance. hope this would help goodluck!

After installing windows 7 webcam is not functining


Your lenevo IdeaPad S10 doesn't support windows 7 nor Windows Vista, so no drivers is available for your webcam.You might be able to install Windows 7 but only Windows XP drivers are available from IBM site.

If your system has atleast support Windows Vista and the drivers for windows vista might work with windows 7 as 90% of the drivers meant for Windows Vista works fine with windows 7,

Check out the chipset of your webcam and go to the manufacturer site and check if any updates are available from their side.

Good Luck..

Happy New Year.
