I have a (now broken) T460s whose warranty ran out two weeks ago. I took it to a (non-Lenovo) computer repair shop and they said the mainboard is most likely broken and needs to be replaced. Interestingly, the mainboard was replaced with a "used but serviceable" part just in November of last year by a Lenovo technician while the laptop was still under warranty.
I wonder if there's any extended warranty on the replacement mainboard, because for me it feels like Lenovo put in a used mainboard that broke down after half a year of use and now tells me that's my problem.
Getting it repaired and paying for it hardly seems sensible, as mainboards for this laptop start at 800+ USD.
Thanks for listening to my problems
