It locked up while I was waiting give me a second to get it. Where is it on my laptop?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Happy Spring!
I should be around this afternoon. I'm home now which is off Price Run as you head 60 toward Caldwell. Don't mind meeting at shop either if they have a time I can head that way. Tomorrow I work a long day, but can bring it to work if they would like to stop by the office I am at Seneca Trail Animal Hospital. I can make either work just let me know what's the most convenience for you guys.

I know that the question was about the recall. certain models were recalled and the warranty extended/fixed laptop anyway

Have you tried re-installing the operating system?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No. I am an attorney and I cant really lose the time or risk the data. Do you know anything about the recall?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
again I read online that there was a recall for that issue because of a flaw with internal hardware

Here is an old post that may be relevant https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-Yoga-Series-Notebooks/Yoga-3-Freezes-when-moved/m-p/3431585#M44119
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
It is only completely still on rare occasion so I haven’t focused on the movement.

all signs point to that, I think it will need to be shipped back to Lenovo to get that corrected

Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ok so is there a way to check if it’s subject to the recall? That’s where I started and never got an answer. Do you have a link where I can at least run the serial number
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
If no recall it would be about the same cost to just have someone local fix it without going through all of this troubleshooting

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht002608

https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/ht504453

Altho I don't think these are for what you're referring to, the 2nd link lookup your serial number.

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill

My touch screen stopped working on my Yoga 2 Pro, Lenovo.
Since Monday. Yesterday I researched it online and in a Lenovo forum it told me to go into the device manager and turn off any power management buttons under Human Interface Devices and under USB ports as well. I found no power management indications under GPIO Laptop or Slate Indicator Driver so I just unchecked power management stuff under all the USB things. Then I called my son since that didn't work and he walked me through a few different searches and we found that the computer doesn't see that it is supposed to have touch screen. … read more
