Possible reasons for Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet not starting up
The most common reasons for Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet not to start up are Power-on self test (POST) errors and operating system errors. Power-on self test (POST) errors can be text, beeps, no beeps, or a combination usually before the operating system loads. Operating system errors are usually a text message that appears while the operating system is loading the desktop configuration after the POST is complete. Remove any non-bootable floppy diskette that may be in the floppy disk drive. If error message "OS/2!! SYS0145 OS/2!! SYS02027" is displayed; a non-bootable floppy diskette is probably in the drive. If the system does not boot to a normal configuration then restore your Tablet system to a previous configuration. Solving intermittent problems requires a patient, systematic process of elimination approach to troubleshooting. These intermittent problems can be caused by hardware or software, so it is very important to note any newly added options, applications, or updates. Another reason is of the system not getting any power at all.
Consequences of Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Tablet not starting up
Intermittent problems, including system lock-ups and hangs, cannot be consistently repeated and are therefore some of the most difficult problems to diagnose. Optimize the hard drive performance by removing temporary files to increase the amount of free space. If another similar Tablet is available, then verify that the battery pack works in the other system and that the other system battery pack works in this system. But this may decrease your battery lifetime
PC Doctor Quick Test Diagnostics must be completed and any error codes or messages noted prior to hard drive replacement. Noisy drives are not always defective. Some are just inherently noisy. Compare against another identical drive with the same field replacement unit (FRU) part number. Test the hard drive after performing each step. Verify the power status indicator. Inspect the AC adapter.
