ThinkPad L512 Start Up - big problem

2010-10-19, 9:38 AM

Hi,

 

I have a L512 company laptop which isn't starting up....

No battery inside, only on AC power - just saw green ring when pushed power button.

It actually starts up sometimes but it's not repeatedly action, so You don't know when he'll boot up.

Won't start without dvd-rom and hdd. All I can see afterpower button is pushed is cpu fan spin for about 2 secs. and nothing else.

Laptop was checked by authorized service (warranty checkup) and they said OK, but it's still same problem with it.

 

Thanks for any help.

Hello s3b0, welcome to Lenovo forum!

I would suggest to call service. This behaviour isn´t normal.

cheers
Andreas

I have the same problem. When i push the power button it seems like powering up but after a second or 2 it shuts down again. After pressing the button a few times(10 to 20 times) it finally starts up. 

I already updated to the last bios, but still no luck.

 

is their already an answer(fix) to this problem?

is it possible it has something to do with the cold weather? Because i go to school with my bike, and it's been pretty cold here. But the laptop is covered with a laptopsleeve and my backpack. Could it be that the L512 can't handle the cold very well?
