Question about Lenovo 3000 G530 Notebook

Open Question

We ordered a replacement keyboard for a Lenovo G530 laptop. The computer wouldn't run with the built in keyboard plugged in. While waiting for the new keyboard I restored the system using the recovery disks and a USB keyboard. Now the replacement keyboard is here and installed but Vista sees the keyboard as a standard PS/2 keyboard and the fn keys won't work. What's worse is numlock is on. Is there any way to tell the system or Vista that this is NOT a standard keyboard. I haven't had any luck finding drivers for it.

SOURCE: numlock problem in HP DV9000

why need to press numlock when it has already a numeric numbers above? when pressing numlock on a laptop it will turn the letters to number because you lock the it. now to go back on the letters you have to press again the numlock key.

SOURCE: lenovo g530 4151 - restore bios from USB or CD ?

Hi, What I would best sugget you if you this kind of issue is to restore your system to its original settings, just look for the small button just beside the power button on your keyboard, it has an arching arrow logo, that key is what we called One Key Recovery that would restore your system to its original factory settings. but just a hint it would also delete everything on your computer so consider bucking up every important files taht you have before proceeding with the recovery. also make sure that the ac adapter is plugin before you press the one key recovery button then it will give the options to choose from, just choose one key recovey then proceed with the factory default recovery, thats it it would now proceed with the system factory default restoration. If you still need some clarifications regarding this issue you could also call the tech support hotline of lenovo

There are a number od web sites offering the service but you don't explain the OS used.
I take a guess at this one.

There are XP, Vista etc. etc.
Hope this gets you started again.

Lenovo 3000 g530 4151 battery is not charging,give the solution

When you connect and disconnect the AC adapter, do you hear a beep? If you do not hear a beep, check the AC adapter for the following.
1. Check that you have power at the plug in the wall. Don't laugh, this happens.
2. Check the cable that plugs in the wall is fully plugged in the adapter. It needs to be fully seated.
3. Check the cable that plugs into the computer. Make sure is not damaged from running over with chairs, etc. or maybe someone tripped on the cord and damaged it.
4. Measure the voltage at the plug with it disconnected from the computer. It should be the same voltage as marked on the sticker. If you are not getting the correct voltage change the adapter.
5. If you are getting the correct voltage, you may have a bad battery, or a bad motherboard. Replace in that order.
Good luck!

I have lenovo 3000 G530 laptop which turns off automatically after 15 sec when turned on. All the lights are blinking when restarted. But again turns off itself.

The problem is most likely caused by the DC jack in the laptop, "common problem" the computer must be dismantled down to the motherboad level and the plug resolded on the flip side of the board, also a can of compressed air will do wonders cleaning the cooling fan and heatsink and open port area's.
