I have the same problem. Have you solved it ? My ideapad s10-3 still doesn't work now. I don't know what to do next. Maybe I should return it. I never meet this problem before. My email address : xxxxxxxxx or xxxxxxxxxxxxx  If you have solved problem , would you please email me how to do. Thanks!

The OS of My ideapad s10-3 is windows XP. Lenovo Energymanagment can not work in windows XP but in  windows 7.  There is no bright when I plug the cable in though the cable worked well in another laptop just now. I don't know why. Maybe there is something wrong of the hardware. I just bought the netbook 4 days ago.   My email address is xxxxxxxx  or  xxxxxxx.  Thank you!

Re: s10-3 WIRELESS PROBLEM.....

my mistake.

 

i flipped the wireless switch just above the SD card reader thinking it was a locking mechanish for the card.

 

to get it working again i flipped the switch back again, shutdown, powered on, hit Fn-F5 and enabled the wireless.

This solved my WiFi issue as well.

AFter installing this, Fn-F5 brought up the pop up that allowed me to power on the wifI card and the Bluetooth.

Worked like a charm.

 

Thanks so much.
