Hi blue_eyes_ca,

Do you mean that your system is not able to turn on after sleepmode and you need to push power button in order for it to turn on again?

If this is the case, you're system is actually not shutting down. The system is just having hard time turning on the system after sleep mode and this is because of the hard disk rotation being stopped.

You need to go to the Energy/Power management to change this setting to never.

Here's how:

1. Go to Start, select All Programs
2. Look for Lenovo Folder and expand the folder
3. Then select Enery/Power Management
4. The Energy/Power Management tool will open
5. Click on the mechanical icon and the settings will pop-up
6. Go to the system tab and change settings for "Stop Harddisk rotation" to Never
7. Save and Exit

Kindly observe the computer and see if it works. If my solution is not able to resolve your issue, please call Lenovo Warranty Support at 1877-453-6686 or 1877-737-1083 for OOW system.

Thank you for using Fixya,

Battery does not last even 20 minutes

Simple, replace your battery.

Search online for Lenovo G550 replacement battery. They range in price from about $25 and up depending on brand and quality. The cheaper ones typically are Chinese import knock-offs, which can do fine, but may have reliability issues. I've had several and for the most part they work ok. For the price, its not likely buying the highest priced will necessarily make it any better in the long run. Just make sure the source you buy from (ebay, amazon, craigslist) are reputable and offer a replacement warranty.

Lenovo g550 turns off when power supply is disconnected ,battery shows fully charged

Replace the battery, it's faulty.

Batteries only have a useful life, then they have to be replaced. Sounds like yours is doing like the ink cartridges, where they register as being full of ink when actually there is no ink in the cartridge.

Iam using Lenovo G550 today system is not booting screen totally blank all Led was on but system is not booting screen totally even hardisk, posser also not responding let me know what is the exact problem

Hi and welcome to Fixya!

If the issue with your machine is just caused by a glitch, try to do power drain.
1. First shut down the machine and unplug the adapter and take out the battery.
2. Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
3. Then put back the battery and plug back the adapter. Try to turn on the machine normally.

If this does not solve the issue, it could be caused by a problem with the motherboard. If your machine is in warranty (or even if its not), contact Lenovo warranty support on this number - 1 877 453 6686.

Hope this helps!

I cannot exit safe mode on my lenovo G550 laptop. I have system restored. booted, and failed booting. Also I restarted the computer many times completely.

Symptons like these usually are due to corrupted data file that is why you Operating System is not loading correctly. Normally an OS reinstallation is the fix. You can shut down the computer and press the OKR button next to the power with an arched arrow sign from the computer turned off and it will restore the system to the default, however everything is gonna be wiped out but guaranteed you system will be error free.
