Question about Lenovo Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I think I'm the problem. I have a new lenovo Thinkvision desktop computer bought through my wife's place of work. There's no set-up manual or user's guide with it - just a warranty book including safety information. My wife's work IT group have supposedly set it up for immediate use. I've plugged it in and connected the hard drive to the monitor, the keyboard and the mouse etc. All the green lights are functioning on the monitor, AC Adaptor and hard-drive and I'm hearing the healthy sound of a functioning computer. However, all I'm getting is the 'Thinkviison' logo followed by the 'Power Saving Mode' message and then a black blank screen. Am I one step away from activating the screen for use? I'd be grateful for your help. Rupert Sydney, Australia

The Thinkvision Logo - (and power save mode) means your Monitor is not getting a video signal.

Be sure you have the monitor plugged into the proper PC port. Some PCs have on-board video, and some have a separate PCI Video Card.

Like this image....

I think I'm the problem. - bc1409c.jpg

In this example - the onboard video is disabled. And you want to use the PCI Video card (in green)

You havent indicated the model # of your desktop - so i am unable to look it up.
You can enter the information HERE to download a copy of the user manual.

If this solves your problem - GREAT!

If you have the PC plugged in properly and it still is acting buggy, or have problems locating your manual - please use the "Continue With this Expert" option so we are connected in the future and can continue to the next troubleshooting step(s).

Thanks for using FixYa!!

How do i get my thinkvison to get out of power saving mode


I do not know how many Thinkvision models are out there, but here is a site that offers manuals you can read online or download.
This is just a page from the manual I found. Here is a link to the manual I found. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/91948/Lenovo-Thinkvision-E54.html#manual
THIS MONITOR WILL APPEAR TO BE NON-FUNCTIONAL IF
THERE IS NO VIDEO INPUT SIGNAL. IN ORDER FOR THIS
MONITOR TO OPERATE PROPERLY, THERE MUST BE A VIDEO
INPUT SIGNAL.
This feature is designed to conserve electrical energy by reducing power
consumption when there is no video input signal present.when there is no
video input signal present.When there is no video input signal, this monitor,
following a time-out period,will automatically switch to an OFF mode. And the
LED will turn orange. This reduces the monitor's internal power supply
consumption. After the video input signal is restored, full power is restored
and the display is automatically redrawn. The appearance is similar to a
"Screen Saver" feature except the display is completely off. The display is
restored by pressing a key on the keyboard, or clicking the mouse. Lenovo ThinkVision E54 User Manual

My Lenovo Thinkvision monitor stuck in sleep mode.


You may need to blow the dust out of the back of the monitor or get a new rebuilt monitor. They run about $30 at shops that rebuild them. Usually good will stores have computer stores attached to some of them. The computer store in Omaha is Called good bytes.

All typeset and pictures have shadows/blur have changed out video card on Lenovo computer - seemed successful for a while but now back to square one. any ideas


Try a different "data" cable between the monitor and the computer.

Connect the monitor to a different desktop/laptop.
If the "shadowing" is still visible, then it's the monitor that has gone "bad'.

Connect a different monitor to your Lenovo computer.
If the "shadowing" is still visible, then your monitor is OK, and your video-card is the problem.
