Power adapter question (T410 2537-DN1)

Question: Power adapter question (T410 2537-DN1)

I have a thinkpad T410 (2537-DN1) and my original power adapter is seeing some wear and tear that I have temporarily fixed with some electrical tape. My adapter is currently a 60W/20V model. What I am wondering is that I still have an adapter from my old T60. It's a 90W/20V model. Can I safely use it on my T410? My research has found both yes and no suggestions but nothing solid. Ergo, I thought I would ask. Thanks in advance, kate

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everybody, I am trying to set up the bluetooth to work on Windows 8. Funnily enough everything went smooth with Ubuntu 14.04.So I am 100% sure this laptop has bluetooth hardware. Still, on the support website there is driver for bluetooth.It says it should be included in Windows 8 but I can't find it.Nor I can find the proper device in my control panel. Any hint? Thank you all.  

Answer:T410 2537 NQ6 bluetooth under Windows 8

Hello, Are you sure Windows 8 didn't install its native Bluetooth drivers? I've never had any problems with Bluetoothinstallation on any ThinkPads when either clean installing or upgrading to Windows 8. If you have the Thinkpad Hotkey Features Integration package installed, you can press FN+F5 to open upyour WiFi-Bluetooth window and enable the Bluetooth there. If not, the package is here: Hotkey Features Integration for Windows 8 See if this doesn't resolve the issue. Cheers.

Answer:wwan card in thinkpad t410 2537-BA2

Hi, tejas08881
 
From what I can see, the card is not in your system by default, so you would have to procure one. The card for your system is the Gobi 2000 for worldwide use, as shown here in this KnowledgeBase article. The correct part number for it is 60Y3183 and you should be able to give Lenovo India a call at 1-800-3000-9990 to order one if you'd like. Just make sure that the WWAN card is Lenovo-branded, as other cards will not be recognized in the BIOS.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Hi everyone, I bought the t410 for about 5 months ago and I've been having problems with the Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 adapter (I'm running Windows 7, 64-bit). I uninstalled access connections about two weeks into owning the laptop because it was not working with my school's wireless network. A few weeks later, I realised that when I turned on the laptop or brought the laptop out of hibernation, it would attempt to connect to a wireless network (whether it had been my school or home network) and would fail to connect without notification. When I attempted to reconnect, it would fail again, bring up the notification to see if I wanted to troubleshoot it, I would run the troubleshooting, and it would fix it 99% of the time, saying that there was a problem with my adapter or the access point and that the adapter had to be reset. I've been dealing with this for a few months now but it's really starting to bother me, considering the fact that this laptop is fairly new. From my understanding, my adapter's driver is up to date.  Any suggestion? Has anyone else encountered this problem? If you need anymore details, please let me know.  Fluder 

Answer:Problem with t410 wireless adapter - automatic connection fails coming out of hibernate/power off

The replacement adapters for my model (dv6000) list the power output as 18.5 volts 3.5 amps 65 watts.

I just received my new thinkpad t500. For some reason, the power adapter that came with it only has a 2-prong plug, and not 3, so it is not grounding. Is this normal? Can I request they send me a grounding one?

Answer:Power Adapter Question

Hi gzeigerman, and welcome to the Lenovo User Community!
 
Yes that's normal. All my ThinkPads, bought in the US, have 2-pin adapters.
 
There ARE 3-pin AC adapters and power cords listed in the T500 Hardware Maintenance Manual:
 
http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70068
 
If you really wanted 3-pin, they are sold by IBM parts.

I have a HP Compaq 6910p notebook/laptop? The external power adapter rated output is 19 Vdc 4.74 amps = 90 wattsMy old notebook/laptop is a HP NC8000. The external power adapter rated output is 18.5 Vdc 3.5 amps = 64.75 wattsI would like to use my 6910p power adapter on both computersAm I correct in thinking that you must match DC voltage, I.E. 19 v/18.5 v = Same but amps and watts don?t matter as my old NC8000 laptop uses less.In other words although my 6910p power adapter can produce a maximum of 4.74 amps and 90 watts my NC8000 will only take/use 3.5 amps and 64.75 watts.I don?t want to ?blow up? my old NC8000 so can someone confirm that what I?ve said above is correct.Thanks in advanceFF

Answer:External Power Adapter Question

"In other words although my 6910p power adapter can produce a maximum of 4.74 amps and 90 watts my NC8000 will only take/use 3.5 amps and 64.75 watts."Yes, that's quite correct.18.5v does seem close enough to 19v that it would work (the basic input voltage is regulated and changed as required inside the laptop) - but I won't offer that as a guarantee that all will be OK.Are the DC ends that go into the laptop the same physical size - often they are different.

OK, so not really to do with PCs, but there's a variety of knowledge on this forum.
With AC mains power it is quite normal for the supply current availability to exceed the needs of an appliance (e.g. one plugs an appliance that draws 1A into a 13A socket).
Does the same apply for DC current with a mains power adapter. For example, I have a radio that has built in rechargeable batteries. The supplied power adapter (rated at 9VDC 500mA output) has failed. Does the same concept apply as with AC mains power such that I can safely use a 9VDC 1000mA adapter in its place (such that the radio still just draws the current required) or would the 1000mA adapter overload the radio?

Answer:A mains power adapter question

I think the Adapter does the 'reducing' and feeds the appliance with the output so you need to have an Adapter that will reduce current to match the appliance.
I am not an expert, but I wouldn't risk not using the correct rated adapter.

I recently picked up a Lenovo Yoga 13 as so far I am loving it.  The power brick that comes with the computer is rated for 65W.  I have a Kensingtom universal power brick that I beleive I can get an adapter to fit the Yoga.  My Kensington power brick is rated at 120W. Here are my questions.  Would it be ok to use the larger wattage power brick? Would it cause any problems with the system in the long run or affect the life span of the battery?  Would using an aftermarket power brick have any affect on the warranty? The Lenovo power brick is the one that I will almost always use.  It stays plugged in at my desk.  The Kensington power brick lives in my computer bag and is only used when traveling.

Answer:Power Adapter wattage question

Hi Fargo,
 
regarding wattage of AC adapter/ power supply/ charger/ power brick... the more, the better... no problem at all.
 
But the voltage used is most important, in case of the IdeaPad Yoga 13 it must be 20V DC (+/- 5%)
and the adapter must have the appropriate type/ size plug with correct polarity,
 
proper voltage and polarity information can be found printed on the OEM AC adapter.
 
Hope this info helps... Zehn

If I have my adapter set (Power Management) to not allow the computer to turn off the device to save power, will it still turn off / sleep when I put the computer itself to sleep?

I had a scare today where for the first time, I rebooted and my network card was unable to detect any networks whatsoever. Running the Dell WLAN Config Utility Diagnostic Hardware Test showed the device failing the last 2 tests:

1. Interrupt - This test verifies that the NDIS driver is able to receive interrupts from the network controller.
2. DMA & Loopback - This test verifies that the NDIS driver is able to send packets and receive packets from the network controller.

Disabling and re-enabling the adapter both manually in XP and physically via the external switch failed to correct the issue. Luckily rebooting again did! I suspect it could have something to do with exiting my Bluetooth radio from fully loading during boot even though I always do that. Anyway I am worried about it because it's possible this is a warning of future hardware failure and if my adapter fails I will be screwed because I run online stores that require me to check my email often etc. and waiting a week to have a new card delivered would be hell. Failing to let things sleep and cool down (after days and days) such as my hdd has always come back to haunt me in the past.

Hello, I had to replace a Compaq 340Watt power supply that fried with a 450Watt and there was no SATA power connections available. I did however have a PATA to SATA power adapter, and put that in and it works, however I am questioning why it is able to work without the 3.3 volt feed that the prior power supply had which was an orange wire.Is there a disadvantage to running with just 5 and 12 volts without the 3.3 volt feed to the drive? I am guessing that the 3.3 volt feed has an importance otherwise it would not have been there... so running without it has me confused?Thanks,Dave

Answer:PATA to SATA power Adapter Question ... 3.3 volts missing???

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_ATAActually finally found the answer to my questions... Figured I would share it in case anyone else is interested who may not have known about this.Most SATA drives dont use the 3.3 volts.As copied and pasted below from the wiki link above:Adaptors are available to convert a 4-pin Molex connector to SATA power connector. However, because the 4-pin Molex connectors do not provide 3.3 V power, these adapters provide only 5 V and 12 V power and leave the 3.3 V lines disconnected. This precludes the use of such adapters with drives that require 3.3 V power. Understanding this, drive manufacturers have largely left the 3.3 V power lines unused. However, without 3.3 V power, the SATA device may not be able to implement hotplugging as mentioned in the previous paragraph.Dave

I have a Lenovo T410 which has been exhibiting keyboard issues (several keys have failed and I've been using an external keyboard). It seems that the keyboard failure is affecting the powering up of the machine. Occasionally it will turn on, most of the time it will not. I've submitted an eService request for this and the status is "Solution Provided" but the "SO Status (as shown on ICSS)" is "On Hold" "Order on hold, pending update" (per: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/research/hints-or-tips/detail.page?DocID=HT074324 ). This has been the case since the 28th of last month. I've confirmed it is a keyboard failure by swapping a keyboard from a T420 (which, ironically, had a service request fulfilled fine around the same time). I have two questions: i) most urgently, is there *any* way I can power the machine on without using the keyboard?ii) what do I do about the service request's "On Hold" status? this machine is out of action and key to our work.  

Answer:Lenovo T410 does not power on due to keyboard / power button issue.

i) There are three ways to power on the laptop without the power button. a) Use a dock. b) Check under BIOS menu (if possible) under power, to see whether you have something called 'Power On with AC Attach' feature. If you do enable it, and save then exit. What this do, is that it will power on the laptop when you connect the power plug into the laptop. http://www.flickr.com/photos/lead_org/8991415709/c) remove the CMOS battery, and power on the laptop by attaching the power adapter to the laptop.

Hello, I've received a new company laptop a T410 TYPE 2537-24G S/N xxxxxxx 10/08. It was delivered with a 65 Watt adapter and when I boot it connected to the adapter (battery in or not) it states that the adapter does supply insufficient power and therefore system performance is reduces and battery charging time may be increased. It asks me to confirm otherwise it will not boot. I've got the extended battery pack on it and an Intel I5 M540 CPU. It's got a solid state hard drive and I think the graphic memory is onboard not discrete. The website says it comes with a 65 Watt power supply when graphics on board and 90 Watt when descrite. But why does the alert come up in DOS boot menu and tell me that the 65 Watt power supply is insufficient? Would it be beneficial for me to get a 90 Watt one? Could the 90 Watt do any harm to the laptop? Our IT support can't help me, maybe you lot can. Thanks for your support, looking forward to your answers. Ralf

Hi ! T410 uses 90W adaptor. I was wondering if T410 is compatible with a 69Watt adaptor. If so, what is the cons for using it? Thank you! =)

Answer:Is 69W Adapter Compatible with T410?

you mean the 65 watts adapter? If your T410 came with Nvidia GPU, it is recommended that you use the 90 watt adapter, but you can still use the 65 watts adapter when the battery is full, but the laptop maybe throttle down accordingly.

I've had my T410 for about eight months, and have never had any problems with wireless connectivity before. Now the wireless adapter won't turn on. I'm on Windows 7. These are the symptoms: In the fn-F5 menu, the hardware wireless radio switch is reflected as "on". The 802.11 wireless radio shows "off". When I click to turn it on, the application looks like it's doing something for a few seconds, but the radio does not turn on. No errors are reported. Both the mobile broadband adapter and Bluetooth turn on fine.If I try to use Access Connections to connect to a pre-existing profile, it tells me it's powering on the wireless adapter, and then proceeds with the connection. However, the association fails, and it doesn't appear as if the wireless adapter is in fact turned on.The ThinkVantage Toolbox shows the wireless adapter as disabled at the hardware level.All Windows diagnostic tools reflect that the hardware radio is off.I've read a number of threads on this, and have tried all of the following: Uninstalling Access Connections, the drivers for the wireless adapter, all power management utilities, the on-screen display and the on-screen magnifier; and then reinstalling them.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad  T410 with WIndows 7 . It has "Intel 82577LM Gigabit " network adapter. The issue is that , sometimes, my laptop doesn't connect to the internet. The problem is very intermittent. There is no issue with my wired network connectivity , as I'm able to connect to my Sony Vaio Windows 7 laptop without any problem.I have tried everything I could get on Internet forums. I updated the network driver also. But the issue still occurs sometimes, and after a few hours , inexplicably, it starts working fine. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks,Suraj

Answer:T410 Network Adapter Issue

The Intel 82577LM Gigabit network adapter IS the wired network adapter.Could it be that the wireless is going into power saving mode? Try holding the connection by doing aping 192.168.1.1 /tWhere 192.168.1.1 is the IP of your router. EDIT: Never mind, I misunderstood your post. Likewise, is the Ethernet adapter going into power saving mode after a while?

I have a T410 and when I take out the battery, the CPU will throttle to 931Mhz no matter the power setting. I have a 65W AC Adapter, Intel HD, i3-330m.Does anyone else have this issue? When I use a 90W AC Adapter the issue disappear.  It's not like I have dedicated graphics....  I tried calling support to get a replacement 90W adapter, but they said they could not do that? So I am posting this issue on the official Lenovo forum so hopefully someone can do the right thing and help me out.  I see that on the website, you can choose a 90W or a 65W. However, I was not given that option when I purchased my system.

Answer:T410 Throttle on 65W AC Adapter with Battery

Hi frnchung,
 
Yes, when you remove part of the power delivery system, the ThinkPad throttles the CPU if necessary. Apparently a 90W AC adapter provides enough power to run your T410 at full speed without the battery.

Answer:t410 - using the Serial Hard Drive Bay Adapter III

I bought mine off ebay from hongkong for about £15. It's not genuine but works well.  I've got WD Scorpio black 320Gb in there which is 7200 and 9mm thick ( I guess )  Do not know if shock protection is included within ultrabay adapter as I use as a desktop replacement. The only problem with my HD in the ultrabay is noise - WD Scorpio Black are quite noisy and vibrate a lot (7200). I suppose if you would use 5400 with higher capacity that would be a nice setup.

Go to Solution.

Answer:Second Hard Drive Bay Adapter 62P4553 for T410

the hdd adapter used in the T61 is not compatible with the T410 one, regardless of whether it is for the sata hdd or the pata hdd.Also, the 62P4553 is for PATA hdd.The T410 uses a SATA ultrabay connector, while the T61 uses PATA ultrabay connector. Those T61 hdd adapter that allows you to install a SATA hdd have a SATA to PATA bridge chip.So the answer is that you have to get a new hdd adapter.

Just faced a rather strange issue, but not really an issue, just different system behaviour than expected. System:W520 Batteries:55++ connected27++ connected Power adapter:Unplugged No other accessories connected. Scenario:I was using the system till it power itself off due to low power (0% reached for both batteries). i.e. Ungraceful Windows shutdown. Then upon pressing the power on button, the LEDs flashes, no THINKPAD logo or BIOS message appears, system appears to then restart again, and the LEDs flash again...and loops until it was no longer able to even attempt to POST. Expected behaviour:Either display the message that says "Battery level is too low".OrDon't loop (this is the behaviour when only the 55++ battery is connected at 0%) Why does having the 27++ would make the system go through this looping cycle?

Answer:W520, 55++, 27++, unplugged from power adapter, 0% battery. Press Power button --> power up loops.

Hello Chatbox,
 
I can understand your issue very well, as there is no message comes on the screen which gives you information to plug the power adapter and prevent the laptop to get shut down.
 
You should install Power Manager software and then customize it as per your requirement.
The software can be download from the mentioned below web link.
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/8mu417ww.exe
 
 
Hope, after this laptop will not shut down automatically due to battery backup

Hi!My Fujitsu Siemens Scaleoview T19-1's power adapter does not work properly (the screen stays black, the light next to the ON button flickers etc.). There are some ways to make it work, but these sollutions are not so safe, so I decided to get a new one.It would be really hard to get an exact same one, since it's an old model, but I wondered if it could be replaced with a universal notebook power adapter? For example the TRUST 16665 65W seems suitable.What do you think?Additional question: I have heard that that if you plug out and in these adapters every day it's reduces their lifetime. It does not seem very logical, but I wonder what the experts think, since I can not think of any other reason why could it broke.

I recently purchased a refurbished T410 as I always have been interested in Thinkpad's for a while and felt it was time to take the plunge. I have been using it without any issues until I installed Lenovo Update and once I installed it I let it do its thing and update all that it needed to one thing being the BIOS. Once everything updated and it restarted itself I was at my desktop and I could not get a wireless signal only to find out that my wireless adapter wasn?t even being recognized. I pulled up device manager and looked into the issue and saw that it has a Code 52. This message followed: Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52) After doing some research I found out that upon boot you can press F8 and boot into the Windows advanced boot options and select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement." Once I did this the problem was solved but here is the kicker, this is needed to be done every time you power on the T410 from shut down. Has anyone encountered this sort of problem before or can help me and point me in a specific direction to help fix this issue?

I am looking for some assistance in getting this feature up and running.  I have flashed 5 T410s to the newest 1.49 BIOS so they have the AC POWER ON feature in the BIOS and enabled the setting.  However they are not powering on when the AC is turned on.  It sporadically works when I monkey with the devices, but it is not consistent or showing a pattern for me to figure it out.  We are trying to mount them in Enovate mobile carts and wish to remove the battery as the carts have batteries in them to make them mobile and we do not want to waste the laptop battery.  The cart has a separate power button for the cart and one that connects to the dock port on the bottom that can turn the unit on and off.  We really want to have one power button that turn everything off and on to not confuse the end users however in order to do so we need the AC enabled to be working.    Anyone else have any similar issues with the AC Enabled setting for the T410s?

Answer:T410 AC Power On Feature

Hi, AdvocateAndrew
 
I just did some tests on an L412 to better understand this issue and I discovered something: The machine would boot on as intended every time it received power, but would lose this functionality once the battery was removed, after which the BIOS setting had to be redone before it would work again. So, at least during my tests, the battery had to be in the system and could not be removed. Perhaps this applies to your system as well. I fully understand wanting to preserve the battery, but it may not be possible. I think that having the battery in the computer gives the system enough power to recognize that the AC adapter has been plugged in. 
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

         At the end of last year we purchased just over 330 T410 laptops. In 6 months we have had 13 with cracked LCDs. I can say that 2 where caused by the users. Pen left on one units keyboard and there was a dropped unit with scratches on the corner were visible. If this continues we will end up with 26 units per year getting mysterious cracke. We did not experience these problems with the Dell D620/D630 series we had for 4 years prior to the T410.  One of our users claimed that the support tech at IBM told him that the LCDs could not support high temperature variations. No details as to what these variations are. We are nationwide so each area will have a variety of temps.  I remember back about 4 years ago watching live demos by IBM reps that would stand on the laptops and pour water in the keyboard. The units looked tough. Has something changed?

Dear Lenovo,dear x220-engineers, after three years of staying with a *insert-name-of-a-popular-u.s-it-brand* notebook I have the desperate need to upgrade to a new, ultra portable device. Gladly this coincides perfectly with the release of x220. Besides perfect display, perfect weigth and perfect price there is one thing bugging me... There are numerous reports of the standard-cpus creating lot of heat and thus prompting also fan noise. Personally I would prefer a slightly less powerful CPU like the low voltage i5-2537 over the standard ones. These ones are stated to have half the TPD as standard ones. Therefore I would like to know, can we expect x220 variants with these lv-cpus? Possibly also as university-model? Thanks in advance. 

Answer:When will we see X220 with Low-Voltage CPU, e.g. i5-2537

Heh. I don't think Lenovo Forums censors other brands names. (Apple, Asus, Acer, Dell, Gateway, HP, SONY, Toshiba)The X220 fan issues might be an issue not necessarily related to the heat of a full power CPU. Probably want to stay tuned to the X220 fan thread. Can't remember if anyone reported egregious thermal output on the X220.

Bought new T410 a week ago. While trying to make recovery disc noticed my DVD drive is always powered off, even when machine is plugged in. To turn power on either you push side button on drive to open the case and it will turn on after almost a minute or can turn power on by right click on mouse. Is this a power saving default setting never heard of it before. Problem is if you are not able to put the disc in and able to play it within a minute it will turn itself off again and won't turn on again until I close all the programs and retry. While trying to change DVD during making of recovery disc it turned itself off if I was not able to pop the next DVD in and play it within a minute time. Very frustrating. Spend 7 DVD's  to complete recovery program as every time it turns off and I have to restart again. Checked power saving setting- Battery stretch is disabled so that`s not the issue. First of all Is this a normal feature with Lenovo. This is my first thinkpad. Why doesn`t it gives me a warning prior to turning itself off. Is there a option where I can increase the time line for it to stay active. Like the machine overall except this annoying feature. Called the technical support they suggested to replace the DVD drive and have shipped a new DVD drive.  Will try once I receive it but not sure if DVD drive is the problem. Any suggestions.

Good Afternoon,Im having a little power problem with my Lenovo T410, after replacing the hard drive. After I replaced the hard drive, I was installing an OS and it powered off because I haven't charged it for about 2 days. When I plugged in my AC charger, it won't turn on.After many trials, it seems that my Lenovo is not able to power on with only the AC power cord. I took out the battery and used only the AC Power cord and it will not turn on.Next, I put back the battery back, along with the AC power cord and it booted, but shuts off right after the "ThinkPad" logo comes on. Now it is charging but the LCD light for the battery is blinking orange.After about 10 mins of charging, I still can not turn on the Lenovo. Is this due to a bad AC adapter? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Lenovo T410 Power Problem

Hi DerivativeX,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I cannot confirm it is a issue with AC adapter, you can also check with performing power drain.
 
To perform power drain you have to remov the AC power adapter & battery after that hold the power button for 30 seconds perform this step for 2 or more times.
 
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

Hey guys, Left my laptop asleep yesterday. Went to use it today and it was a brick. No LED lights turned on when I went to plug it into the wall, and the power would not come on. A little Googling and I found the "press the power button 11 times" trick. That worked! My question is: what happened? Is this serious or just a fluke? How can I avoid it in the future? Thanks, Justin

Answer:Pretty much brand new T410 wouldn't power on

There is probably a build up of statics within the power circuitry. You can't really avoid it, well at least no one seriously documented the cause and effect of all these.

Hi all,I looked around thinking I would easily find an explanation for my dead T410s given all these symptoms, but I can't find anything. Its out of warranty so I will probably need to diagnose myself and order the right part etc. Thank you for your help in advance! Andrew  - Computer went black (powered down) for apparently no reason. It has done this ~once a week for the last month but  I can usually turn it back on - Now, when AC power is provided (w/ and w/o battery) there is a beeping and clicking 1 to 2 times a second with the fingerprint reader flashing in sync. Computer does not respond to pressing power button.  - With battery power only, the computer is totally unresponsive

Answer:T410 is dead with flashing and beeping with AC power

Solved the problem! Hopefully this will help someone else. Symptoms are apparently that of a short with the mother board? When I removed the back plate for the Wifi cards there were three cables not attached to anything (I think they are antenna cables for a WAN card that I don't have). Two of them had slipped under the protective plastic that was stuck to the motherboard. When I removed the wires and covered them in electric tape the computer stopped beeping and booted normally.

Hello - I'll try to be succinct and cover everything I have tried. I have a T410 i7 with Win 7 installed along with all the drivers.  It has been working fine but I seem to be experiencing a power issue.  This first manifested itself as the screen going blank and refusing to come back on.  Thinking it was overheating my partner opened it up and cleaned out the fan (my partner fixes Lenovos as a field engineer) and applied thermal paste to the processor.  All seemed well.I was working on it, plugged in, when suddenly it shut down.  I tried to restart it but without success so I left it plugged in (with the orange light flashing) and went off to have supper.  When I came back, the orange light was still flashing so I decided to leave it to charge overnight.Next morning - orange light still flashing and although it would power up there were odd things going on when I looked in Power Manager.  It showed the battery as being good for 35 hours (although I knew that if I took the AC adapter out it would close down).  So I tried a different known good battery - same thing.  Then a different PSU - same thing.  On the desktop, it shows as charging for half a dozen animations then goes static - Power Manager says it's charging but doesn't display the 'time left to fully charge' and isn't actually charging at all. So - here are the things I've changed and tested at each step:1)  The battery2)  The PSU (trying both 90w ...

Recently my T410 has been overheating and shuttind down after a few hours of browser usage. I believed this was due to a heating problem so I finally got under the keyboard today only to find little to no dust or debris clogging up the heatsink fan. Just to be safe I hit it with the compressed air again. After reassembling, the laptop now shutdown after a short period of being powered on. This shutdown happens regardless of me getting into windows loading or getting into the BIOS setup. I think this too may be an overheating problem, as I see and hear the fan spinning up harder before the sudden shutdown.  I've tried everything from running with only the AC in, only one ram card in, holding the power button for 30 seconds prior to actually powering up, etc. Is there any more troubleshooting I should preform, or should I just accept the fact I'm better off handing this to a repair professional.  Side note: After reassemble I had 3 screws that didn't fit anywhere on the exterior casing, maybe I mistook a screw placement and now it's somehow short circuiting?

When plugging in the power adapter, the "charge" light does not come on, nor will the notebook power up. To rule out the HP power adapter I plugged in a Targus universal adapter (with correct polarity) and same result. Same results whether the battery is installed or not. The notebook had been in storage for several months, therefore, no recent changes. Any ideas?

Question: T410 fan Question

I have a Thinkpad T410 model 2518. I think it may be having fan issues. From time to time the machine will just shut off. It has a brand new battery so I know that?s not the issue.  While it often runs in the 60?s for temp for CPU and Motherboard it sometimes gets up to 81 ? 91 for the CPU and 81 ? 83 for the motherboard. Do you know what the normal temp range is for this computer? Would 81 and above be consdered a hot temp that could lead to these computer shut downs? I appreciate any insights. Thank you.

Answer:T410 fan Question

most of the CPUs shut off about 100C, but 81-91 is very hot. When I was using a T410, I think I could hit mid-80's temperatures only when running one of the cpu-torture utilities that would stress all the cores at the same time. I would expect idle temps in the 40's or 50's

Hi,i have a really strange bug. My thinkpad T410 (2537-UQF) with an OCZ Vertex 3 SSD only boots if the power supply is plugged in. If i have full battery and try to boot without the power supply i get a blue screen after being about 60 seconds in the screen where the windows logo appears. I have Windows 7 installed fresh a few days ago. I think its possible, that i have made some failure with the drivers. The ThinkPad Power Managers always stops working after booting. So i have removed the program by using the "msconfig" functionality. I am not really sure what i can do about it. Any idea? Thanks for every answere in advance & kind regards Rain

Answer:Thinkpad T410 only boots if power supply is plugged in

I have now more detailed information about the issue. - Restart and Sleep works without the power supply, only battery plugged in- Shutdown and then restart, works only if power supply is plugged in. (It does not make a difference if the battery is plugged in, always if the power supply is not plugged in the startup will fail with a bluescreen. On the bluescreen is a advice to make a filesystem check. If i use the harddisk check in the bios, the test will fail if the power supply is not plugged in with an Read Error. This makes me think about a problem with the SSD i am using. But im working 10hours or more a day with the notebook and everythink works as long  as i dont do a shutdown). I am now really confused. I reinstalled the power manager and the power manager driver. The power manager now works perfekt. It does not stop working after booting. What should i do next? i cannot install a SSD firmeware update because i have windows on the ssd. Also on the website from OCZ is written, that a installation of the firmware-update is not recommend if not absolutly necessary. Please, help me if someone has a idea. In my oppinion this is a really big issue (Bug), because i can not consider my notebook a notebook anymore if it can not boot without an external power supply... Any advice? Greetings, Rain

Hi everyone, on my T410 2522-EM1 the power managment gauge in the taskbar originally disappeared. After downloading and installing the newest version of the power managment (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70601) and the power managment driver (http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4GXPEG) the gauge was back again. But after a while I noticed that the gauge didn't display the actual battery load but showed the load that the battery had at startup. In the power managment utility the correct values are displayed. I am absolutly clueless on how that could be. I tried reinstalling all of it but it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone else experience the same problems?

Answer:T410 - Problem with the power managment gauge (it won't change)

Showed the... load?To which are you referring? Are you talking about the time it will take for the battery to run down or the percentage of life it has left?For me, though, Power Manager has always been an awful buggy program that breaks your computer when you uninstall it since it won't uninstall properly and denies you the use of your DVD drive when you need it.

Hi,  Yesterday I came home and was about to use my T410 like I sometimes do. I turned it on, the computer loaded the ThinkPad screen and then quickly showed me a "Fan Error" in the top left corner. I took the computer apart and saw that the fan wasn't moving like it should. I tried to clean it without taking it apart any further but that didn't work so I took the fan out and cleaned it. It is now spinning smoothly again. However, after putting it back together, when I turn it on the power you can hear the laptop turn on but the screen stays black and there are no lights flashing on the monitor. My question is, why is my monitor not turning on?  Side note: While taking out the fan I swiped my finger on the thermal paste, I'm going to re-apply some thermal paste between the heat sink and the cpu later today (any suggestions on how I should clean the old thermal paste?) 

Answer:T410 - Black screen, power on, no light on monitor

Hallo and welcome to the forum You should remove any old thermal grease and apply new thermal grease before you turn the computer on. The Hardware Maintenance Manual (HMM) has instructions on how much thermal grease you should apply. To clean the cpu in my notebook before applying new thermal grease i have been using isopropyl alcohol in the past.

My laptop is ThinkPad X1. Same situation. Originally was at 97% charge, once go to battery mode (AC unplug) battery immediately goes to 5% and then hibernate. Replaced 3 batteries from service center but problem still persist. Support Center keep insisting is battery problem despite 3 replacement batteries from service center! Lenovo is providing faulty batteries to customer for consecutively 3 times!? Issue has dragged for over 1 year and now Support Center says battery warranty is over and request to purchase new battery. If purchasing new battery can solve the issue, why did I need to replace the battery 3 times!? All batteries cycle counts range between 30 to 40 only. (Mostly on AC and recharge threshold is set to recharge at 33%). Lenovo batteries can only last for 3-6 months!? Despite case being escalated to "TOP MANAGEMENT", no response from Lenovo at all for over 1 week! Is this even escalating? Is this so-called "Customer Satisfaction" when satisfaction level is NEGATIVE ONE HUNDRED?

The original adapter cord for my T61 laptop shorted and sparked right at the base of the laptop connector where the cord had apparently cracked through from too much bending.  Then the laptop worked fine on the battery until it ran out of juice.  There is no indication of power to the laptop on the replacement power adapter cord though.  I verified power at the laptop end of the replacement cord with a multi meter. I think this pretty well isolates the problem to between where the cord plugs in and where the battery power joins the circuit, right?  Would that be in the power supply?  I've read that there is not a "power supply" per se in laptops but that it is integral with the fan kit.  So should I just be ordering a replacement "Thermal device and fan (Integrated)" to fix this problem?  I see in the part list that this is marked as "not to be replaced by the customer".  Is that just a warranty statement, irrelevant outside of warranty, or should I be looking for a good repair shop? I have some experience with computer repair, but have not dealt with any repair shops in years, and have never dug into a laptop myself.  What I think I know to this point, as stated above, is based on a bit of web searching and general experience.  In reality, I'm very unsure of anything I've said regarding diagnosis or next steps.  Please advise. Thank you, James

Hello all, I recently recieved my IdeaPad Y410p from the Lenovo repair centre and they changed my system board for a different issue, but now I have a new problem. I updated Windows to 8.1 and did all the critical updates and then tried to uninstall some of Lenovo's bloatware and now my laptop won't turn on or charge the battery. I tried to do a power drain (remove the battery and hold down the power button), but still no luck. The laptop won't turn on at all with the battery or the plug by itself.  I then waited a few hours and tried to turn on my laptop again and then this time it powered on for some reason! I quickly restored my system back to Windows 8 thinking there was a problem with an update or bloatware uninstallation and then all seemed well until  I powered down my laptop again, but then couldn't power it back on. I called Leneovo and they said it was impossible for it to be a hardware problem since they just repaired it and since I updated everything and then restored it back, which then it still had the same power issues means it most likely isn't software. The only other thing I could think of is there might be a problem with the power adapter, but I've had this laptop since July 2013 and the adapter was working perfectly fine and this problem only started once I received my laptop back from Lenovo after a "repair". Any other suggestions would be very much appreciated at this point. Thanks!

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad Y410p won't power on with power adapter plugged in and won't charge battery.

Hi there -  I wanted to add that I am having the same problem. I sent my Lenovo in for warranty repair (rear left hinge broke) - I got it back Friday May 16th and ever since then it won't stay on and sometimes won't turn on. I called Lenovo warranty support and (of course) they denied it was their problem. However, I complained enough that they're going to send me a new one. Of course, you have to be in-warranty for this to work. Just a suggestion Hope you get your straightened out!!!

Hello, I have a T530 quad core, which means I need the 135W power adapter.  I was flying yesterday and my seat had power, so I figured I would use the "Airplane In-Seat Power Mode" function on Power Manager to avoid tripping any breakers on the airplane.  However (and I've tried this at home as well on AC mains), choosing the airplane in-seat power mode doesn't seem to result in the advertised "adjusting charge rate and cpu" - instead it just causes the laptop to not charge at all and say this: "This AC adapter may not provide enough power to your Lenovo computer. Please reconnect the proper AC adapter." Of course... it is the right adapter... and switching off Airplane Power Mode makes it start charging normally again immediately. I have the BIOS update needed that says it enables this feature (1.12), and Power Manager 6.32. Has anyone else tried Airplane In-Seat Power Mode and had it work, or can anyone from Lenovo comment on this? THANKS!

Answer:T530 Airplane In-Seat Power Mode = reject power adapter

It will be a bugger just to take another flight to effectively test it again. LOLMaybe from a 12V auto socket.

I apologize in advance if this is something that has been dealt with here before; I searched and couldn't find anything.  My laptop was working fine up until this morning when I woke up.  The power indicator light that is normally solid green was orange.  I turned on the computer and it worked as normal except that it was using battery power despite being plugged in.  I was able to use the laptop until the battery died. Now the power light flashes orange when the ac adapter is plugged in, and is off when the laptop is not plugged in.  I'm pretty sure it's not a battery issue, and the ac adapter itself is brand new ( I bought it just two weeks ago) and appears completely undamaged.  I know it isn't an issue with my surge protector, which is working fine for other devices. My completely un-expert, non-technical opinion is that there is an internal issue where the ac adapter connects to the laptop.  Any thoughts?

The tips I got with this Kensington 33197 power adapter have numbers stenciled on them like N3, N5, N19, etc. The tips sold on their web site make no mention of the "N" numbers and have numbers like K20059, K20050, etc. and there is no cross reference.

You can also see a complete reference for "N" numbers to all the laptops they support at the above link. Again, no mention of the numbers Kensington uses on their site.

I need a cross reference for these kinds of numbers.

Kensington referred me to their telephone tech support; but, there is a language or cultural barrier that prevents their understanding what I need.
