Recently I've noticed that every time I'm hibernating the laptop for a longer time (no more than for the night), when it comes back up, it starts at 0% charge and has trouble doing so (tries to shutdown mid-wakening due to low charge). However, the battery is not "dead" For any battery issue, try updating BIOS and the Power driver. Then in this ...

D'oh it's because the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro I'm using has an AMD CPU and it doesn't support Thunderbolt. I can still use the dock to connect peripherals, but I doubt it's possible to get monitor working.

The cable is named "SATA to USB-C Cable, Benfei USB-C (Thunderbolt 3) to SATA III". On the other hand, the IdeaPad Gaming 3 Product Specifications Reference says: The USB-C is only USB 3.2 and not Thunderbolt capable. This cable cannot therefore be used for your computer. You need a SATA cable.

Either the battery very likely needs replacing; or, possibly the AC adapter is not charging well. Based on your post, it seems like battery. Startup takes extra current (power) which likely explains why it is shutting down as it does. Try resetting the battery. Allow the battery to fully charge. Unplug and let the batter fall to shut down in normal use (...

There's 2 sides to consider. Neither of those companies produce their hardware. Production is OEM:d, in case of laptops its Quanta, Compal and a few others. They don't produce the parts either, OEM manufacturers get those from other OEM manufacturers. En masse production necessarily requires a great deal of standardization. So there's a good chance those ...

I have had this problem with my Dell 7520 out of the box. Dell ended up replacing a bunch of parts with no success. Fans, cpu ect. The on/off/on pulsing of the fan was driving me crazy.

To narrow things down, I started to install the HP Assistant software, as my plan was to install everything it suggested to download/update. First item from the (long...) list was a BIOS update (the current version was from November 2020 if I remember correctly). After installing the update and rebooting the system, the behaviour described in my question was ...

Safe, most likely but probably not a good idea if you are running CPU intensive tasks that may cause it to run very hot. Cardboard is made of layers with air-gaps, so it is a good insulator which is the opposite you want for dissipating heat. There are purposely built stands to lift a laptop up. Generally, those either have a gap and hold the laptop on two ...

I had a similar thing on my desktop PC and it was the monitor. I replaced it. All well. Try an external monitor and see if the white spot remains. Most likely not. Will it spread?

Re-applying the thermal paste on a new computer would likely void the warranty, so is not recommended. I would recommend instead returning the laptop, if you can still be reimbursed. Otherwise, ask for repairs.

If your keyboard has Sound Off key, you may use it before shutdown, and it may stay in effect after the boot. If the above does not apply to your computer model, then there is no software solution. Note that silencing the beeper may also prevent notifications if other errors arrive.

Definitely looks like the annoying Modern Standby feature that manufacturers are introducing to "improve" our PCs Windows 10 Event Viewer shows logs about the system entering/exiting that mode in the "System" section.

The laptop is defective or infected. For checking infection, run deep antivirus scans by several well-known antivirus products. If no virus is found, the laptop is defective. As it's new, it's not your job to repair it. My advice in this case is to return the laptop and ask to be reimbursed. If refused, ask for a replacement. If also refused, ask for repairs....

I'd bet it's the rectifier in the cheap PSU, being only half wave. Might fix if you earth it properly… or not, if it's not earthable. Solution, really, would be a good PSU.

There are two paths to take. Given that you are scared, I suggest the first one since it is the easiest and most likely to help: Take it to repair. Contact Dell to find an Authorized Repair Center near you or send it to them for service.

Go to the Lenovo support site for your model, find the Lenovo Software Update app. Download it, run it and update all drivers. Be sure it picks up the Synaptics app for the Touch Pad. Do this, restart and test. If the touch pad continues to act strangely, return it to where you purchased it and have it repaired / replaced.
