I have a Lenovo x230 laptop with an i7 processor that starts the second time. This means that when you first turn on, there is a black screen. The restart must be forced and then normally turns on. I tried to use an external screen, tricks with disconnecting the battery and pressing the switch, CMOS battery, RAM memory replacement - nothing did not succeed. On this motherboard, the service replaced the BIOS chips due to failure in the upgrade. They said that the computer would not work anyway. The computer, however, works, but after the second launch - which is annoying. I have updated the BIOS on my own, which did not solve the problem. Once the computer starts, it works very steadily and without problems. I have not found a similar case anywhere on the internet.

I have this problem on the X260. I thought maybe the sleep/turn off settings were set wrong, but I can't figure it out. I have to do a cold restart almost every time I come back to my computer.

You need tools and skills. It is not a user thing. You have to read the BIOS chip, insert the new ME Region and programming the chip. Maybe you have to unsolder/solder the chip.
It is possible to send you one programmated chip, but still have to replace the chip without damaging the motherboard.
