Just unplug computer, remove battery and CMOS battery for 5 minutes. Don't need to remove RAM or others.

Hi SMAG,

thanks a lot for you test. On my PC it ist also very reproducible:

After shutdown with a monitor connected via HDMI --> The PC cannot start again and I've to cut the power to the CMOS.

Without a monitor connected via HDMI, I've often shutdown my PC and every time I could start him again without any extra actions.

 

Of course, this can't be a solution, because I need the second monitor and it is unreasonable if I once forgot to disconnect the HDMI I have to open the PC and cut the power to the CMOS (with a long wait after it until the BIOS has rebootet the first time without power and to reset the date/time).

 

But hopefully it is now reproducible and Lenovo will find a solution very soon.

 

So thanks a lot for your testing!

I haven't experienced the issue since I downgraded to BIOS firmware 1.15.

 

But I'm experiencing slowness since I get the Lenovo logo until I get Windows starting. After that everything seems to be OK.

Just curious, if there is there a reason v1.15 was chosen over any of the other v1.xx BIOS versions. Have you tried any of the later v1.xx BIOS?

 

I'm going to revert mine later and see if the problem still occurs.

I first started having these troubles on the original P70 when I went from 1.15 to 2.03 back in April when that was the current latest. After 4 weeks I finally got a replacement which came with 2.03. This still had all the troubles so I flashed back to 1.15 which was the CD I has to hand.

Question!

 

Can you test it, if the problem is also without connected HDMI Monitor, without Dock, without connected Beamer?

Sorry, I'm not sure I understand the question.

If you're asking if the problem occurs without the monitor connected, No, It does not. The problem did not occur until I added the external monitor. It's failed under displayport and thunderbolt. I haven't tried HDMI or a dock.
