    Hi, thank you so much for your post!

    Quick question, qould you happen to know where I can find the CMOS battery in the Lenovo Yoga 710? (this laptop)

    I had disassembled the computer but couldnt find it. Is it possible for the computer to not have one?

    Hello! Is there something like SMC reset? Mine doesn´t power on, when I push power button, it flashes three times, but does nothing. I disassembled it now, tried to reconnect battery, but still nothing. Thank you. 🙂

    Remove battery and hold power down for 30 s to reset
    Then reconnect and power on
    It should work
