Question about Lenovo IdeaPad U160 Laptop Computer 089455U Dark Brown Intel Core i7640UM 120GHz 800MHz 4

1 Answer

My Lenovo U165 hung, and after waiting for the system to resume, the laptop suddenly freaked, screen went blue (with white text) for a split second, before the laptop restarted. What happened?

I was only using Google Chrome, with multiple (but not too many) tabs open. This has occurred twice. The first time, recovery was almost immediate. Now, my laptop starts very slowly, and hangs much more often.

    Worked, somewhat. It seems like more of a temporary fix; everything was working at normal speeds, no freezes, until the next day, where the same stuff happened. I didn't even add any new files :(

Remove all USB attached devices like drives.

  • Roll back system with System Restore. Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

How do i reset a Lenovo Thinkpad T500


Reset could mean one of several things. I assume you know how to simply reboot it. If it is hung you can hold the power button down for about 6 seconds to turn it off.

If you forgot the password, contact Lenovo support at http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/
Provide them with proof of purchase and original receipt to prove ownership of laptop.

If you want to restore factory defaults then installed on the ThinkPad T500 is a program called Rescue and Recovery, which helps you diagnose and fix problems with the Windows operating system. To access this software, reboot your T500 and press the oval-shaped blue ThinkVantage button -- located on the upper-left area of your keyboard -- when the ThinkPad logo appears. When the Rescue and Recovery menu appears, choose the option that describes what you want to do. Follow the directions on the screen to run the appropriate action.

If you need the recovery disks then try

What could be the problem with my laptop (Lenovo G460, Processor - Intel Pentium)


Does it come back up if you reboot? If so, you might have a video driver problem. Your laptop has an Nvidia N11M-GE1 graphics chip integrated into the system. You can download the drivers here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/lenovo-g-series-laptops/lenovo-g460-notebook

However, you may have a worse problem. White screen issues are often caused by bad cabling, in which case you (or a certified technician) would have to open your laptop's bezel and check the wiring for the screen.

Third possibility is ensuring your power options are set to NOT turn off the screen after any amount of time. Sometimes Windows doesn't recognize that something as simple as a movie is currently playing, so it tries to hibernate, and that causes the issue.

Best,
-Jon

Black blank screen Lenovo 3000 N100


You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

Hello! :)
The first thing I would have you do is to shutdown the computer (Hold the power button until the system turns off) and retry the format. Are you using a Microsoft XP disc or a recovery disc? If your not sure just post with all of the text that appears on the CD.
