    I have a problem with my laptop. It works great but when I move the display it starts showing some vertical lines on the right side. As soon as I stop moving it the display works again.

      Andrew, most likely you have failing LCD screen and it has to be replaced. I don’t have LCD removal instructions for this particular model but at the end of my disassembly guide I posted a link to a similar model. Hope it helps.

      First, test the laptop with an external monitor connected via the HDMI port. If there is video on the external monitor but not on the laptop screen, it’s possible you have a bad screen.

      Second, try replacing the memory module. It’s possible the memory module is bad.

      Third, try disconnecting the main battery and the CMOS battery. Keep booth batteries unplugged for a few minutes. After that connect both batteries and try turning the laptop on again.

      Also, try turning it on with the hard drive disconnected.

      If nothing helps, most likely there is a problem with the motherboard.

    My problem is that my laptop does not start properly .. As soon as the sign comes from Lenovo, he does not do anything anymore
    He just tries to restart over and over, and he beeps

    (original comment in German). Mein Problem ist, dass mein Laptop nicht richtig startet.. Sobald das Zeichen von lenovo kommt, macht er nichts mehr
    Er versucht nur immer wieder neu zu starten und dabei piept er auch

      Enrico, the failure depends on the beep code. Check out this Lenovo page for error codes: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht062270
