ThinkPad P1 GEN 1 BEEPS

Hi everyone !

Hope you're doing well. For me, I'm in trouble with my P1, the laptop boot up, make 2 beeps then he shutdown. He restart by it's own and then make 4 beeps and stay on.

Does anyone know what's the trouble with it ? By the way, if I remove the RAM, Lenovo Smart Beeps respond by a code. However, the 2 and 4 beeps are standard BIOS beeps.

Screen is black btw.


------------ Pour les francais --------------------
Du coup je suis assez emmerdé, au demarrage 2 bips, puis il s'eteint. Apres il redemarre et fait 4 bips. Pas de retroeclairage, pas d'ecran rien. En retirant la RAM j'ai les bips intelligent de Lenovo qui m'indique qu'il n'y a pas de RAM mais c'est tout.

Thanks for your help !
Merci de votre aide !

Hi there,

Unfortunately it seems that the HMM for Thinkpad P1 only mentions SmartBeep symptoms.

So after the automatic reset, there are 4 beeps, black screen, and boot does not continue. Am I correct?

Are these short beeps or long ones?

Do you have anything attached to the laptop? I would try disconnecting every external peripheral (docks, USB devices, etc.), just in case.
