usb problem,DVD drive problem , auto startup problem and shutdown problem

2008-09-05, 18:35 PM

hello to lenovo community ,

i bought my laptop last year in jan. i was extemely statisfied with product.for few months but then acing lots o problem with it

listing my problems below. and my laptopin not in warranty state


laptop info :

model : y500 7761 4AQ 

windows xp sp2 home (originial windows provided with laptop)

hardisk 80 gb hitachi sata

intel t2250 1.73 ghz c2d processor

512 mb ram


problem #1


the 3 usb ports on laptops left side doesnot work

they give error "usb device not recognized"

i know it is not the problem of drivers as the same devices were working before on the ports

and same devide (pen drive or any other usb) works on the usb port on right side of latop


i mean  out 4 usb ports only one works  and rest gives the error "usb device not recognized"

i tried formating and repartitioning the hardisk and  and istalled original window but of no use


problem #2

DVD drive

mat**bleep**a DVD-RAM UJ-85JS only recognizes the cd's that came with laptop and by chance few other dvd some time i think only 1 out of 100 .and doesnot burn at all

this is common problem with most of lenovo users with mat**bleep**a drives. i think levono techinians shuld give us firmaware update for this

any one who knows sol,


problem #3

my orginal charging adpater was broken ..so i bought another one . not of lenove original and after that when i put my latop on charge(when i switch on adapter) it gets started automatically


problem #4


sometime my laptop shutdowns abruptly rather it restarts. don't know the cause


i checked my hardisk status with software hddlie pro and it reported 100% health


i request the lenovo community to give solution of these


now i am not all staisied with the lenovo laptops :smileysad:

With so many problems I would recommend sending the laptop back if you're still in warranty. Make sure that the new charger runs at the same voltage/current as the old charger, it starting up automatically will be the least of your problems if it explodes your battery! Does it say anything in device manager about your usb ports?
