  2. What should I do if I'm stuck in the phoenix securecore tiano setup I try fixing the date and stuff and saving and exiting but it just brings me straight back to the setup screen how can I stop this and be able to use my laptop

  3. Hi, my laptop had oil spillage on back but it does turn on. I wiped off the oil and reseated ram. now when I press power button it turns on with display ON showing Lenovo and turns off about 33 secs later and repeats the same until I pull the power chord. It restarts itself for every 33 seconds until I pull the power chord or force shut down by pressing power button.

    Can you please tell me what is the issue ?

  4. Dead its sure dead anything will be dead Microsoft looking for money to do some damage or buy new one why i have to open labtop and do some shit because i am only do update for drive bios fff

  5. I have a Lenovo ideapad s340 15api

    I bought this used and it wouldn’t turn on without it being plugged into AC adapter. So I purchased a new battery and replaced it. I noticed the battery that was previously installed was the wrong model and figured that would be the issue.

    Now with the new correct model battery connected it still will not take a charge. It won’t even appear as “charging”. But When I disconnect the battery and plug in the AC power it will then show up as “charging” but with no battery connected.

    It will not let me update the bios driver without both a battery connection and it being plugged into a AC power supply. Any advice will help please and thank you !

  6. The battery is the same, but fallen of from that piece of metal, i unplugged it, but the baterry still needs to be atached tu that piece of metal, or i can just plugged and that's, i ask this because i'm sure that's the problem and my laptop won't turn on

  10. if the bios is not keeping time why don't you just put a new battery in? Why would disconnecting and connecting the battery work.

  11. Hi, I tried this but my computer keeps restarting, it restarts even when I open bios. It goes to bios for a few secs then it restarts no matter what I do even if I do nothing.

  12. Hi PC Monkey, I see you are very good at repairing computers.

    I have a lenovo ideapad slim 3 ryzen 5 4500u but it's having problems. CPU speed stuck at 0.38Ghz.

    I've updated windows, diagnosed physical hardware, updated bios, reset PC, reinstalled windows, but it's still stuck at 0.38Ghz.

    do you have a solution?
    thank you

  13. Hi, my Lenovo IdeaPad 110 is not charging when the laptop is on. It only charge when its off but sometimes it only charge up to 90%. Any recommendation? Thanks

  14. Hi anyone please help my Lenovo 130 laptop was stuck in bios update for almost one hour and I removed the battery to save the motherboard from burning and afterwards when I tried to turn it on(press and hold power key for 3 seconds number lock key turns on and then turns off, if anyone has the solution please share it would really help me, thanks…

  15. I have a question please, if that CMOS battery with cable and stickers wrapped on it, if you unplugged it, would it still have any electric contact to the motherboard? As long as it is still placed on the mother board? I need to make sure not to have any power activity running on. Thank you.

  16. Thanks so much, worked a treat after trying all steps from your 1st video, my question is why does this happen? 2nd time in 2 weeks, its an old thinkpad E440, last time repeatedly keeping the power button down, it finally booted, this time, nada till I unplugged the CMOS battery that thankfully, was under a panel on the underside and I didn't have to go through all you did on this video. But why is it going into this shut down non boot mode? Red light stays on, but just blinks 3 times. Is the motherboard about to go? or is the power switch on its way out? Thanks in advance.

  17. Okay, I'm not sure if this video will work for me, and it seems like a long proscess, so im going to explain my problem and please tell me if this will work for me. So my problem is that when I was updating my BIOS (I didn't know BIOS was an important part of the computer at the time) it was taking a while, so I just shut my computer, and now it's not turning on.

  18. Hello

  19. Hello, How are you doing today! hopefully you are great. I need your help, I have Samsung model number np300e5v:
    by my mistake I tweaked so of the bios settings, I activated secure boot and changed the boost option from legacy to UEFI then I only have a black screen.

    I removed the bios battery … nothing happen
    I removed the bios battery and shortened the connection between the battery … nothing happens

    any help. because this my work laptop and I need your help. it will be great if you reply to this comment. Thank you.

  20. My Lenovo ThinkPad W530 turns on and the fans start going, but it doesn't boot at all. I had taken Windows entirely off it to do a clean install, but now I can't even get into the BIOS.

    You talk about this kind of problem early in the video and say there's a video I should look at, but I don't see it in the recommended ones off this. What's it called?
