I have had same problem before - its a hard one as it could be a few diffent things.
1 - battery
2- power supply
3 - faulty ram
4 - over heating

Your 1st step would be to see if it happens again then re-post reporting if it happen when on battery or power plugged in.

When i power it on i get four beeps four times and it won't boot and shows nothing on the screen i.e. dark screen the make is thinkcentre lenovo model and after i decide to shut it down by long pressing...


1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

It turns on for a few seconds then shuts off


Hi,
Since you have already replaced the ac adapter. The problem is still there. the most likely cause of the failure is bad motherboard. Remove the battery from the laptop and disconnect the ac adapter . Press the power button for 10 seconds. Reconnect the ac adapter and try powering on the system. If the same doesnot work

Shut down computer but some lights stay on


Your are not "shutting down" the laptop. It is going into "Stand-by" mode.

#1:
When you want to shut down,
select [Start]
then select "Shut down" and not "Stand-by"

The power button will also work.
#2:
When you want to shut down,
Press the power button and nothing else.
The laptop will log you OFF and "shut down"

Powering down by itself. I have changed all the power options to never turn off but it still will shut down. It doesn't seem to be any time either. It can be 3mins or 30 mins. I do notice that my battery...


Remove the battery, see if it still shuts down. If it does not shut down when the battery is removed, than you can pretty much decide that the battery or the interface between the battery and the main board is the problem. If it still shuts down when there is no battery, and just plugged in via the power adapter, than it's either the power adapter, or the interface with the main board. Also, in "power options", make sure that "enable hibernation", and "standby" are NOT checked.
