x201 shut down randomly

[ Edited ]

I bought three x201 3249-ct0 at one and half year ago in UK from the Lenovo official website, I used one, and other two for my friends, recently, my x201 and my friend’s are all face the those problem:

-- Random shutdowns over the course of the past months.
-- Sleep usually doesn't work. That is, it'll shutdown.

--screen turn black if press sleep button.


what can I do in UK?

Re: x210 shut down randomly

update all the drivers from System update and windows update...

You can check this thread for how some users manage to fix their X201.

I have a Y2P (i5) ... Feel free to ping me if you want me to test some applications with your Y2P if you have the same model. I don't mind keep doing recovery on it if needed .... =)
