Hello bogdanx003 and welcome to community,

 

The BIOS update helps in resolving the issue. Kindly change do the power drain and change the main, refix the power connector on system board  then check.

 

If the issue persisting then check with live Linux disc and feedback us.

 

 

Best Regards,

Tanuj

Hello Lenovo-Forum,

 

I have a great Thinkcentre edge 71 in my Office now, but since I installed Windows 8 x64 my Lenovo has the described Problem. When I want to power off the pc is shuts down everything but the fan and the green power light are continuing to work.

 

I was curious and installed Win 8 x86 and I dont have any Problem with shutdown only on the x64.

I Need to use the x64 because of the amount of RAM I have installed.

 

I also tried the described BIOS UPDATE but still no luck on shuting down on x64

 

If anyone can help me with that please. I dont know how to solve this Problem on my own.

 

thank you

Hello all,

 

I bought 15 Edge 71 for the computer room of my school and some of them have exactly the same problem. I made an image from the 1st one and made clones for all others. What is 'funny' is that only some of them have this problem, not all. I realized that this problem occurs more offen when windows has just made an update .. Im really in trouble with that because teaches are complaining, so I anybody has an idea, it's really welcomed

thanks in advance for your help

Regards

I'm experiencing the same problem, clean install of Windows 7 x64 and power led and fan not shutting down. I also notice that screen freezes on shutting down screen. I tried to update BIOS, etc. The solution I found is to install the Windows 7 Lenovo factory image and problem disappeared. However I would like to know how to avoid this problem with a clean original WIndows 7 DVD. So what has the lenovo image different than Original DVD of WIndows 7? Thx

Hello, i had the same problem on my edge 71, clean install windows 7 64 bit , after shutdown the led power was still green fans reving .

The solution is to dissable quick boot in bios , wipe the disc an format it MBR not GPT, if installing windows 10 or 7 with quick boot enabled it will automaticly format in GPT and will have the same problem .

After turning off quick boot i used a linux distribution live cd and wiped the disk , installed windows 7 64 bit and had no problem since .

 

Good luck
