  1. I’ve had this Laptop for 4 years with basically no problems till recently. I’ve been experiencing screen flashing on/off, and using a work around by plugging the AC adapter in and then out. Also, the power up fails after the Lenovo logo appears and keyboard lights up and the powers off immediately. The work around for this is to use the NOVO button which displays a recovery window. Selecting “Normal Startup from the menu brings the system up normally.
