I just wanted to point out that after some trial and error I've found the computer only fails if i completely shut it down with an external monitor plugged in. If I unplug the monitor then shut down the system will boot next time without error.

 

I'm still running v2.04 btw. I haven't tested out the older versions yet.

Remove CMOS battery and use something metal to shortcut the CMOS battery pins on the motherboard. Then the computer can boot again.

This seems will happen if P70 sleep with dell thunderbolt dock connected, and then I disconnected it thunderbolt cabel.

Problem happened:

1.  P70 + dell thunderbolt dock ---> Dell UP2715K, Win10 running

2.  Close P70 , P70 go to sleep

3.  After 12- 20 hours(the next day), P70 maybe in  dormant state.

4. Disconnect thunderbolt cabel

5. Open P70, keyboard light flash for one time.  then nothing happens, screen keeps black, power button light on, no disk light flash.

6. Remove CMOS battery and short cut CMOS pins.

7. P70 boot (Slow than normal, keyboard light flash several times before LENOVO logo shows) . Then windows restored to previous working state ( document opened just like before it go to sleep.)

2016-06-27, 17:26 PM

Hello,

 

can you confirm, that the issues only, when you use your p70 with an external monitor, beamer, dock?

 

Without any external devices, without docking station no problems?
