Question about Lenovo 3000 N100 0768 - Pentium Dual Core T2060 1.6 GHz - 15.4in. TFT PC Desktop

1 Answer

Gone in 60 seconds

Unit will power up and boot to OS. After 60 seconds it shuts down hard. This happens at normal boot, safe mode and on the bios setup screen. When first plugged in, the battery indicator will flash red/orange exactly 53 times, then it stops. Battery will not charge. I am neither an expert or novice. I believe it to be a bad power supply as I can hear an irregular hum from the supply. It sounds like a whiny intermittent sizzle (for lack of a better word), but not the bad blue smoke sizzle.......No odor either. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!

Seems to be a problem with your power supply. Contact your manufacturer for a new one. It won't be expensive

Powerup problems


you should not leave PC on for more than a couple days.

It may have gone into Hibernate and if there is a bad sector, (i.e. read errors,) when that is loaded into RAM, then that can cause many symptoms. Try to boot into Safe Mode, then if that works, Restart and use Normal mode.

Hi Amanda.

When it is like that you usually need to reinstall the operative system (Windows or Linux). Try first turning off the netbook and removing the internal battery for one minute. I don't think that will work.

You can also try accessing the RAM modules in the internal slot and checking they are well in place. Do this with battery and power off. Do not touch the chip contacts. electrostatic discharge from your fingers can damage them.

If that does not work, then the system must be reinstalled. The unit does not have internal DVD player. The system is reinstalled using an external DVD player and an operative system install disk or using an USB disk where the OS install files have been previously copied. The system setup is commonly done at any local computer shop for a small fee.

Regards.

The is something wrong with the booting of the computer. Does it pass the initial BIOS boot screen? Try pressing F8 once every second after pressing the power button and see if you can boot the computer in safe mode.

It is your operating system that is failing, not your hardware. When Windows hits a Blue Screen of Death on startup it happens so fast that you only see it for a split second then it reboots. If you want to know what the issue is, when it reboots wait till the first screen goes away, (the f10 and esc screen you mentioned) then start tapping F8 every few seconds. It will bring up a new menu that has options like Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. Choose "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure" then hit enter. Windows will continue to boot and then will stop on the Blue Screen of Death. Copy down the info on the screen and enter it into a Google search or post on here for me to diagnose. Let me know if you need more help.

Push the start button and start up begins but then shuts down after 10-15 seconds. Push again and the duration between start up and shut down are shorter intervals. Pressing F8 will bring up the safe mode...


You need to determine if it is hardware or software. Try booting from your restore CD. If the unit will boot from the CD then you just need to repair your OS installation. If it will boot from the CD then try going into BIOS setup. If you are able to access the BIOS leave it in there for about 1 hour to make sure there is not a hardware issue such as an overheating CPU.
Open the cover and remove all of the "Dust Bunnies" that are collected inside the case - look closely at the cooling fins of the CPU if they are clogged your CPU will shut down to prevent damage. I use a tooth pick to clean out the fins of gunk - especially if there is a smoker in the house

I have reviewed your problem and have the fallowing items for you to check and or try.
Try booting into safe mode and see if the same thing happens.
( F-8 )
Choose safe mode with network configuration installed.
If the unit runs without shutting down, it is a program conflict and not a hardware issue.
Run this safe mode start up, with no external devices connected.
Note... Remove any Flash Cards or USB devices, CD or DVD's .
If the unit runs without shutting down in safe mode, you may want to run a complete restoration of software.
Hope this helps.

Same problem!


I would boot the computer in safe mode and here is the instructions.
Learn how to start up in Safe Mode.
Products Affected Mac OS X 10.4, Mac OS X 10.3, Mac OS X 10.2, Mac OS X 10.5
To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:
  1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
  2. Press the power button.
  3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
  4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).
During startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.
During startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.
To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.


while your in safe mode see if you can uninstall the drive software and reinstall it

Toshiba, when i start the computer. it says toshiba tempro accounted a problem, computer logging of, and then it shuts down.


There are a myriad of problems that could have resulted in this.
1. A virus has shut down your system
2. Memory has gone bad
3. Last software you installed has corrupted the hard drive
Possible solutions:
1. When it is coming up – hit F8 (over and over again) till the menu comes up :

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

See if you can get in safe mode. IF NOT – repeat these steps, and instead of clicking on Safe Mode – Click on “Last Known Good Configuration”
IF THAT does not work:
Insert your recovery CD and see if you can boot up to that.
If THAT still does not work, you have a hardware problem, either memory chips (RAM) or your Hard Drive.

Well, the 1st thing to check is boot into safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can get to the desktop.

If you can, run system restore and then see if you can boot to normal mode.

If it shuts down, boot to the system BIOS, and see if the system will continue to run, if it does, then your issue is most likely a operating system problem or a hard drive problem causing an OS problem.

If the system doesn't shut down in BIOS, next is try to boot to a CD. You may have to remove the Hard Drive to exclude it from the issue. If the system boots to a CD and will continue to run, then we are pretty sure the HDD/OS is the issue.

Next would be trying to run diagnostics on the hard drive, if they fail, replace the drive. If they pass, reinstall WIndows.
