Sounds like something might have got jarred loose during shipping. One wouldn't expect it to be shipped like that. I would open any quick access panel I could find and re-seat what ever was behind it, RAM, wireless card, modem, hard drive, optical drive too if possible. I'd also check the BIOS and windows to see if the correct amount of RAM is shown. You might even want to reset the BIOS to fail safe defaults. If you do that you will have to go in and reset the date and time, boot order, stuff like that.

I wish I could....I bought it directly from Lenovo (NEVER AGAIN!!!) on Black Friday, and gave it as a Xmas present. They won't take returns after 21 days from purchase, without a 20% restocking fee. They will only take it in for repair, which I would like to try and avoid if possible.
Your best option is to send it back to let them repair it ..
Let them figure it out ...if it is so bad they will end up to replace for you rather than fixing it .. i hope .
Good Luck budd.

Sending it back for repair is kind of my last resort, just because I don't like the idea of shipping out a new laptop for repair, and I don't really want some tech monkeying with my Wife's laptop. If it is a hardware failure, I guess it would be best to send it back for repair.

I can contact them, and have talked to 2 of their techs, and they have never heard of this problem, and said that the only think left to do is send it in for repair.

It is definitely a hardware failure. That is not a beep code, that is the sound of a key being held down when the laptop boots.

I'm sorry, but it will have to go in for repair, unless a key is stuck.

Are you sure?

In the UK we have the Sale of Goods Act.

It overrides any retailer/manufacturer conditions - also makes no difference if the goods were in a sale.

In the UK you would get a brand new replacement by Act of Parliament.

damn, i could use that... here in the states, if you are under 18 and you purchased an item you can return it at any time and get your money back... but that doesnt help me anymore haha. and it normally is hard to prove to the stores until they know about the law...
