I have to report also 3 issues with my Lenovo Ideapad U410:
1. WI-FI issues since I bought the notebook, end of February 2013.
- I tried updating the wireless drivers, but did not help.
2. Left hinge detached from the lid 3 months ago.
3. The LCD screen remains black after starting the laptop, it takes several reboots to eventually display the image.
The left hinge detached from the lid apparently because of poor design, the plastic keeping the screws in place broked in small pieces... There are still pieces of plastic around the screws... No way to place the hinge back, unless passing the screws through the LCD lid...
Being a desktop support technician, A+ certified and Dell technician certified, I supported IBM laptops, then HP laptops, and now Dell laptops. Never had this kind of issue with other laptops.
I have an 16 inch HP laptop since 2008, and still no issues, also WI-FI works wonderful.
I bought the U410 to have a smaller notebook, as the HP is much biger, thicker and much havier, but unfortunately after only 2.5 years of use, I cannot use the Lenovo Ideapad U410 anymore.
I would invite Lenovo to replace the lid, fix the display issue, and also fix the WI-FI issue.
Thank you for reading this.
