ThinkPad L430 - 5 Bips

2016-06-10, 13:03 PM

Dear all,

 

I have a Lenovo L430. At boot, i can listen 5 shorts bips (maybe CPU).

 

The laptop has been disassembled, remove the CPU and then plug it again. Still 5 bips.

 

When i plug it into power supply, it boots itself, then beeps 5 times, then shut down, and boot again ...

 

What could be the problem?

 

Thank you in advance,

Welcome to the forum!

 

I'm sorry to hear about your problem, according to Lenovo Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM), 5 beeps means a motherboard problem. Source: L430 HMM (check chapter 4, page 42 - printed page of the document, not the page number your pdf viewer shows - )

 

If you still have warranty on the machine you should contact Lenovo.

Hello,

 

Thank you for your support. Unfortunately, i'm out of warranty. I'll try to buy a new one somewhere.

 

King Regards,
