Lenovo 3000 Notebooks : N100 Power Failure!

Have a N100 notebook and battery does not recharge and now runs on AC power but would shut off by itself very shortly after switching it on. Brought a new AC adapter and battery straight from the lenovo website, received it, but did not solve the problem. I called lenovo directly they are not sure what could be the cause of the problem. They never heard of this problem. Laptop is only a year or so old, and only use couple hours a day. Wondering if anyone have the same problem and had it resolve, I would appreciate any insights you can offer. Thank you in advance for you help! Hello.
My N100 0768 is running Vusta.  It will not charge the battery and it shuts down at random times but never gets hot.  It lasted 6 minutes the first time I tried to boot it after I got it back from an authorized Lenovo repair shop, and then when I reboot it again it lasted only 3 minutes.
Lenovo replaced the fan, and that resolved the shut down problem for less than 30 days.  Just yesterday, the repair shop replaced the mother board and then the CPU, that did not resolve the problem.  It seems that the longer the laptop is turned off, the longer it will stay on once it is booted.
It does not even stay on long enough for me to backup all my files.  Lenovo wants me to restore it to the factory defaults, and that means I will lose all my programs and all my data.  The shut down occurs even if I do not load Vista. 
Can anyone help me resolve the shut down issue? Thank you very much. Peg peggydaly@yahoo.com

    Hi.
    Yes, the machine actually shuts down completely.  
    Thank you for your help!

    I am currently having the same exact problem with my laptop.

  • peggydaly Feb 09, 2009

    Hi.
    Your solution does work for a little while, thank you!  I was able to cool the laptop down using a fan, so I backed up my files and then ran hard drive diagnostics - the hard drive was working just fine.  I sent the laptop back to Lenovo - they replaced the monitor and serviced the fan (again), and reset my laptop back to factory defaults (re-imaged the hard drive).  My laptop shut down less than 10 minutes after I got it home a week later.  I removed the battery, plugged in the ac adapter, and powered on the laptop.  It stayed powered on overnight, but it shut down sometime during the morning on the next day. Lenovo can't find the issue, but I will call them again today.  I will update this post if something interesting happens.

    A friend of mine has this same problem. I tried the solution of taking the battery out but it still just shuts off after about 2 minutes.



    Has anyone come up with any other solutions?

    I have the same problem with my Lenovo 3000 N100 0768-A49. I initially thought it was an OS problem, did a complete reinstallation of Windows XP ... no use. Installed Ubuntu afterwards, still same problem. Removing the battery did not help. Now I'm listening closely to see if I hear my fan. Lenovos are inferior, will NEVER buy another Lenovo.

  • adrian53 Apr 17, 2009

    I have the same problem running operating on winows XP. it just cuts out sometimes it goes to restart all over again, it can be after 5 mins or 4 to 5 hours. It is definately a design fault. Any solution yet ?

    Class Action Lawsiut is not the way to go Hp had simmiler problems with an Nvidia chipset cooking the board in the F500 series but in there sace the best recourse was small claims courts because the companies lawyers can't be involved

  • John Griffiths May 11, 2010

    Ok, quick question for troubleshooting purposes. Are you sure that the machine actually shuts down/Off? Do all the lights on the laptop go out as if you have shut it down? If you have the power light still on, then this could indicate a problem with the invertor or the lcd panel itself. Let me know and ill try and help you more.

This seems to be a common problem on Lenovo N100. Lenovo should present a solution or make a recall of the machine in order to keep their reputation

Hi.. I have a temporary solution to your problem. I had the same problem. Remove the battery and the ac adapter from the laptop. Just reconnect the ac adapter without the battery and switch on the lap. Presto.. Problem solved.. It doesnt power off anymore unless u remove the ac adaptor. Usefull if u hav needed files n want 2 create a backup. Still i havent found out a permanent solution to this problem. I suspect its a motherboard fault

I have the same problem. It seems that running on battery it's fine, but if the AC adapter is in the frame at all then it cuts out with no warning. It has taken me a while to come to this conclusion!! It sounds as if a small relay clicks just as the computer trips

Same problem, n100 768 lenovo, did some digging, seems to be a motherboard design fault, but Lenovo refuses to own up to it, what is needed is a Class Action Lawsuit, if anyone hears of one please contact me radisindahouse@yahoo.com

I have similar problem with my Lenovo N100. I tried several suggestions provided in this and other threads but none worked.

I have tried to run the laptop just on power code, without battery as suggested by few. It seems, this works for few but not for all.

Too bad Lenovo is not taking any responsibility and coming up with solution. It sucks that now I have buy a laptop just within 2 years but one thing is sure, it won't be Lenovo this time.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

Bluetooth & sound


Generally, connecting phones via bluetooth to a laptop just allows for file transfer between the two devices. It is not to input sound from the phone through the speakers of the laptop. You would need a bluetooth audio device for that such as bluetooth speakers or headphones

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.
