Lenovo laptop(8932) will go into a sleep like mode (you can still see the screen, very dim) when plugged into ac adaptor. Doesn't do it with battery power. Changed system board, power adaptor - no...


Good Day Psmith!

It looks like the AC adaptor is not making the right supply voltage needed for your laptop.

If you have a multi tester, you can test your ac adaptor to see if it has stable 20V voltage output supply needed for the laptop to make it work.

Set your tester to DC range. Plug the ac adaptor to your wall socket. Hold the other end of the ac adaptor (the one you connect to your laptop. Insert the red (positive) lead into the center of the adapter pin, then touch the black (negative) lead to the outside metal part of the pin.

Read the display in your tester. If the adapter is working properly, the meter should read between 19 to 20 volts of the rating. If the adapter is faulty, the meter will read below 18volts.

If that would be the case, I'm afraid you will need to replace your ac adaptor.

You can purchase online a replacement ac adaptor for lenovo 8932.

I have Lenovo Thinkpad R500 laptop, when I poweron the laptop, lights all lights flases on and then off altogether. The laptop is only a month old to the day of purchased.


First, check the AC cord where it plugs into the AC adapter. Sometimes it gets loose there.

If that isn't it, take the battery out of the machine and see if the machine will power on when just connected to AC. If so, try putting the battery back in.

If indication is OK, but could not power ON then check ur RAM for any loose connection or dust. clean & reinstall. 7. If still no display, connect an external monitor, check if display is comming. 8. If Display is coming then your LCD need to replace.

AC runs for 5 minutes and then circuit breaker


What else do you have running on hydro while AC is running? Such as coffee maker, microwave, water heater, fridge. That 30 amp breaker is your main breaker I assume, or breaker on pole your plugged in to. Keep in mind your AC will normally draw approx. 15-17+ amps momentarily when compressor kicks in to cool, then drop back to 12-15 amps when running normal. If your AC is drawing too much current, then you would only normally trip 20 amp breaker for AC in your panel. Try switching other appliances to gas operation while running AC, such as water heater, and fridge. Make sure incoming voltage is up to specs as well . (115-120 volts)
If water heater takes 5-8 amps, and fridge takes same when they are calling for power, you'll be close or over the 20amp mark when you consider your on board converter etc. as well. That only leaves approx 10 amps for AC that requires approx 15 amps to run, and up to 20amps when compressor kicks in. If you switch all those other items over to propane, and it still happens, then a current draw test should be done on AC unit to see if perhaps a capacitor is faulty, or possible compressor faulty.

Lenovo R61 won't get to login


Hi,
I,d suggest To charge the battery Fully.
Then power up the laptop, with A/C Adaptor connected.
Also check your models user manual, regarding the sleep/hibernate mode. the laptop may have gone into one of these modes. Usually a ( zzz ) Icon Key or Similar.
Also when booting press the LCD/VGA Button.
If all else fails, try to see if your laptop, has a hard-reset button or switch. ** Sometimes this can be a small hole ** On the underside of laptop. *** Only use with laptop Powered Off ***
