Lenovo g550 orange flash 3 times

3 orange flashes means flat battery. If you have a faulty charger or charger socket on the laptop then the battery wont charge or power up with just the charger connected.

My Lenovo ideapad z565 with Windows 7 does not boot after the Windows logo appears. How can I restore it to it's factory settings by using the onekey recovery (F11)? I already did that but nothing...

For you to perform One Key Recovery, it is done by pressing the OKR button next to power button when the computer is off..(OKR or One key recovery is a very small button usually next/ near the power button that has an inverted U-shaped arrow and usually, some models, the color is orange button)..Select "One key recovery" from the options and next, select "Restore from Initial Back up" after that, you may select "start" to perform OKR..
Just in case OKR button is no longer working, you may ask for the recovery CD's from lenovo to manually install windows.

How do you get the ps3 to pick up the blue tooth head set

Pairing the Headset with the PS3
Before the Headset can be used with the PS3, the two devices must be ‘paired’ so they can communicate with each other. Use a gaming controller for this procedure and ensure that the Headset is powered on (flashing blue LED light) and that it is not being charged via USB cable.

1. Power on your PS3 console.

2. Within the “Settings” menu, press X on “Accessory Settings.”

3. Press X on the icon labeled: “Manage Bluetooth® Devices.”

4. Scroll down and press X on the icon labeled: “Register New Device.”

IMPORTANT: Depending on your model of the 8860 Bluetooth® Headset, your power button is either an oval shape with an icon of a circle with a line going through it (5a) or it is a button with a phone icon (5b). Please follow the appropriate next step depending on your model of the 8860.

5a. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by holding down the K1 button until the LED flashes Blue and Red (hold K1 approx 12 seconds).

5b. Once at the next screen, prepare the Headset to be paired with the PS3 by tapping the pairing button located next to the volume controls on the side until the LED flashes BOTH Blue and Red.

6. Once the Headset’s LED indicator is alternately flashing Blue and Red (indicating the Headset is ready to be paired), press X on “Start Scanning.”

7. Once Scan is complete, the PS3 will recognize all Bluetooth devices within range.

8. Locate “8860” from the list of available devices and press X on its icon to be prompted for a Pass Key

9. Enter 0000 (four zeros) as the Pass Key and press X on OK

10. You should then be taken to a new screen stating: “Register completed”

Trouble Shooting
Q. The PS3 is unable find the Headset.
A. If the Headset has been paired with another Bluetooth device, the PS3 will have trouble finding the Headset. Either remove the Headset from the paired device or turn off the Bluetooth power on the paired device.

Lenovo R61 won't get to login

I,d suggest To charge the battery Fully.
Then power up the laptop, with A/C Adaptor connected.
Also check your models user manual, regarding the sleep/hibernate mode. the laptop may have gone into one of these modes. Usually a ( zzz ) Icon Key or Similar.
Also when booting press the LCD/VGA Button.
If all else fails, try to see if your laptop, has a hard-reset button or switch. ** Sometimes this can be a small hole ** On the underside of laptop. *** Only use with laptop Powered Off ***
