You may try to uncheck the box under my computer>right click> properties> advanced> startup and recovery.

uncheck the box for automatic restart.

try to blow a can of compressed air into your fan and heat sink channel.

then try to run windows update or go to update.microsoft.com to do so..

regards,
Ronald.

Not switching on


Hi, Disconnect your ac adaptor from the laptop and remove the battery for about 30mins. Then keep power button pressed for about 10 seconds. Now fit install the battery and the power lead, wait for the mains led to liight which should also show the battery led as being charged, after 20 seconds, power up the laptop.
It should now power up, if not check if any flashing leds are present and if the lcd screen tries to light up.

How to format a lenovo laptop


If you have the OEM Lenovo XP disc are you have to do is insert and follow the instruction. If you are using off the shelf software, then switch the BIOS SATA to compatibility mode, and boot from your CD drive with the disc in it, and format the harddrive followed by installing the software.( like Windows XP or the Vista)

Lenovo n100 is 10 minut after power off.


If you are running on battery power and it powers off, then the battery is not fully charged or the battery is worn out or faulty.
Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and after 2 or more years they will lose its charge capacity until it will not charge at all.
A new battery will solve your problem provided the charging circuit in the laptop is OK.

Battery problem-plugged in, not charging. Lenovo 3000 N100.Type:0768.Model:24U.S.no:L3LA215. Please offer a solution.


Had the same problem with a manufactured refurb, would go to 79 %, if you go to power options, change plan settings, change advance power settings, then to the Lenovo energy management tab, press the big enable Lenovo energy management, click on the blue gear to the left of the question mark, if "Optimize for Battery lifespan" is selected it will only charge the battery to 80%, change this to "Optimize for Battery Runtime" and it will charge to 100%

Battery problem


Batteries in portable systems on average last approximately 300 to 500 recharge cycles (Roughly 12 to 18 months) and are considered a consumable item (Hence the 1 year warranty when the rest of the system can have a 3 to 5 year warranty). So your battery replacement is not entirely unusual. If a replacement battery is detected and recharges normally, then stops working after 12+ months of heavy use, the failure is normally the battery.

One thing to check is to see if the battery is under recall:

Google shows that Lenovo batteries run about $100 for a N-Series system (4400 mAh) which is about normal pricing for a laptop battery.

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
