Yoga 300 Flashing Caps Lock

2018-02-16, 12:18 PM

Hello 

 

My Yoga 300 will not start any more and the Caps Lock keeps flashing.

I have tried to hold the Start Button for 30 seconds but it will still not turn on.

When the computer is off, I pressed the NOVO button to start the Lenovo OneKey Recovery system but it does not respond.

 

The laptop is 18 months old.

 

Can you please provide some pointers on how to recover my laptop?

 

Many thanks,

- Peter

Is there a pattern to the flashing Caps Lock light?

 

It helps if you can remove the battery to clear the CMOS, but that's not easy with a 300.

 

Unplug the AC adapter, press and hold the Power button for a full minute after you notice the compuer's shut off (which will probably be instantly in your case), then try the NOVO button. Longshot, though.

Thanks for your reply.

 

The flashing starts slowly and then continues quite quickly.
I will try your suggestion to clear CMOS.

 

Thanks again,
