X1 Carbon randomly dies

2012-09-20, 18:53 PM

I just received my new X1 Carbon yesterday. 


When I booted it up the first time the computer died after I set up username and password in Windows. Next time the same screen appeared but the username was ofcourse taken already. I logged into windows and the computer died. 


After 10-20 HDD checks the computer logs into windows and I can install some software (Visual Studio etc), but then it just dies again. Sometimes it can't even login to windows before it dies. 

 

I've tried to format and reinstall windows but it doesn't help, sometimes I can use it for one hour, and sometimes just for 10 seconds. 

 

I can't really say that I can see a pattern in this whether I'm using the AC chord or not.. 

I've also done a memory check and a harddrive check without any errors.

 

I guess I have to return it and wait for a new one.. really disappointing =( 

 

Any ideas Lenovo?

>>  Sometimes it can't even login to windows before it dies. 

 

When this happened to me on my PC a couple years ago, the problem was my one of my fans had died (either the power supply's fan or a system fan; can't remember which.) .  The system was shutting itself off as a defensive reaction to overheating.
