Topic: Lenovo G500 does not boot without batteries

Hello. Actually, a question in a subject title. G500 (Pentium G2020), slightly  - instead of regular HDD it is installed SSD OCZ 460A, it is added the storage unit 8Gb (and  one-in-one selected pressure as at factory 4Gb the unit), total 12Gb RAM, the matrix is replaced on IPS right after purchases. After all changes  fulfilled without remarks 2-3 years (precisely I do not remember how many), never completely understood, since the construction is that that access to system  and to all principal components is given after untwisting of two screws and removal of a back cover. Recently ceased to start confidently. From time to time switching-on comes to an end on a logo of Lenovo and further happens nothing, to buttons does not react, in BIOS does not enter. After  the notebook starts batteries BIOS (each time it is necessary to remove a back cover) absolutely normally. Special regularities it is not revealed, besides, that the first similar glitch happened after long inactivity of a notebook, but here today again happened, last time thus turned on about 2-3 days ago. On a software - Windows 10 x64 LTSB pure, not the assembly by_Vasyan, Office, well and standard  and  . I can not understand where to catch a glitch. The first thought was about SSD - but the firm utility shows the green status and health of 95 %.

Something there are vague suspicions that at a variation on this subject . There is a possibility temporarily to replace it with the same HDD with cloning of an image and to check up?

Native HDD already is not present available, I sold it right after changeovers on SSD. Ate speech about mode SATA utility OCZ confidently shows connection 6 Gbit. But it in normally loaded state, of course, also is not known in what mode SATA works at the moment of a glitch. And it is not absolutely clear why helps  batteries - I do it in a mode disconnected \there and then connected, I do not wait some minutes for resetting to zero of adjustments BIOS. Even system time is not dropped.

Probably something happens at the moment of drive initialization, dropping  something initialization  normally changes also. Generally an Internet floor it is filled up by problems not notebook start in a Lenovo sheaf + OCZ Vertex. Here still an example . Not the fact certainly that in your case of 100 % is guilty SSD, but is very-very similar. What about updates  and the last insertion for SSD?

Tried to disconnect instead of a battery itself SSD and to enter in ?

... It is necessary, really the people complain of this sheaf of vendors:spy:  the latest accessible is stitched (2.03), firmware SSD too. Actually, at me still is in other computer SSD Kingston SH103S3120G, it is possible to span their places to try. If really problem in compatibility of Lenovo and OCZ, that, on idea, has to help. On the other hand, worked  normally in this sheaf:spy: But, at present, seemingly, really variants are not present. Taking an opportunity,  - [off] what now the software is considered the most normal for system cloning at image and deployment of an image on HDD? I such was not engaged in things especially, once used Clonezilla, but after it it was necessary  with the loader manually, details I do not remember, for a long time was. [/off]

Did not guess, if it is fair. Somehow so it turned out at the moment of the first glitch that the problem needed to be solved quickly, and the first that occurred - battery switch-off , it and helped, so this method and I use.

Before something somewhere to throw, try to disconnect at first at glitch display SSD and to enter in . If norms, then 95 % that it SSD. To tinker with sections and changeovers by something another always be in time.
[off] For operation with disks I use products Acronis and Paragon. But at them a little that is free wink [/off]

It seems that matter is not in SSD. At next  de-energized a notebook and pulled out SSD. Included, the notebook reported that the load device is not found and allowed to enter in . For a long time the ripened idea about the experimental changeover SSD by another has been carried out. Connected regularly working in other computer Kingston SH103S3/120G and from zero installed on it system. After pair reboots the situation repeated one-in-one as with OCZ - a logo of Lenovo and all. Difference only that with it SSD the notebook at least reacts on Ctrl-Alt-Del, but in  does not enter.
PS Surprised that after setting of new system on Kingston the system generally in any way did not define an optical drive as though it generally is not present.

it is bad... A pancake. It is bad that  capital in behavior . A drive use? If is not present, take out it  from a notebook, try to live without it.

Drive I do not use practically. Without business adapter Espada SS12 for a long time rolls, thrust in it OCZ on which as the system and a software have been installed - I deleted nothing - and installed instead of a drive. Simply assumed that glitches can be somehow connected to SATA-port for a hard. The notebook booted indifferently. Utility OCZ showed that through Espada SSD works in mode SATA 3 Gbit, but, I think, here an adapter there is nothing, simply port for a drive such and is.

Here in the last message just say that drive switch-off helped to get rid of problems at loading.

It completely agree with the last phrase in the last message - "It s a shame that these things happen...."
That is characteristic, with OCZ in a bay for a drive the notebook boots and ungeared almost quickly as, actually, and should be at usage SSD, before was more slowly. While let works in such configuration, I think, then, probably, I will try to return SSD into place, and a drive not to connect. Still - in a regular bay for a hard installed while Kingston the second disk. In general, at me the expanse for search of the most efficient configuration:D is simple now
[off] Nevertheless, slowly I select changeover to a notebook. I want not to save, and to take at once normal  - with regular IPS and SSD. Like, praise Thinkpad, but now something I doubt that I will contact Lenovo again:spy: [/off]

[off] Well nevertheless it is not necessary to compare  and business notebooks. At any vendor between these rulers a precipice, both on quality and on support level. TP good notebooks if the price list does not confuse, it is possible to take safely [/off]
