Live USB of Lenovo ideapad u510 w/Fedora 19 black screen

I'm having trouble with a new lenovo ideapad u510. I try to install Fedora 19, using the Fedora Live USB image 19 xfce spin, the player starts correctly, but when you select the option to boot Fedora 19 Live, I get a screen that is gray with a cursor at the top left, then two error messages that look almost idential to other flash each, the Fedora logo starts to load , and then the screen turns white.

The part of the error message I got was '... ". managed to activate the AA (?) »

I tried to re - turn on the monitor by using the function key F9 and I tried to boot from DVD with the same result. Once the screen turns off, it remains this way until I force the machine to stop. Once I forced the closure, the computer, to turn her on, past on the screen empty again without even loading the lenovo BIOS screen. Even the "novo" button does not options for me.

My UEFI is set to Legacy / Legacy first, although the EFI setting is always Windows 8, with no other options. I looked through my settings on each tab of the BIOS and I can't find anything further to disable secure boot.

Can someone help me in installing Fedora?

For posterity:

  • My disappointing experience with the Lenovo Ideapad A1 Tablet

    As a student who lives on a scholarship that I had saved for months to buy a Lenovo ideapad A1 compressed. After seeing it shipped to the United States, I felt satisfied with his system Android and several features it offered. I felt happy with it, up to 3 months after the purchase. I turned it on a morning expect to read the daily news and I noticed 2 lines horizontal purple color and a line horizontal color cyan who were stuck in the screen all the time. Logically, what I've done is to call Lenovo support, since I bought it only very recently. To my surprise, I was told that the Lenovo A1 tablet doesn't come with any kind of guarantee on the screen at all. And even more frustrating to know that the replacement of this screen is from $ 200 to $ 300 . It's still more expensive than buying another Tablet! How this is possible when the LCD screens are one of the products that have more problems in the manufacturing process?

    Thank you. I sent my tablet to fix (it has not even turn on a couple of days) I am now waiting for them. I had good experiences with service of lenovo Centre before, I hope they can fix

    There are no KMC program or command on most computers. So, if we had to

    Did you call Lenovo support, or maybe it was one of those false calls trying to get

  • Lenovo Ideapad U310 speaker problem

    Hi all

    My U310 of Lenovo Ideapad has had problems of speaker,

    The headphones work correctly, but the built-in speakers that are Awefully located inbetween as the hinge and the base of the screen do not work.

    I first thought it was a problem with the headphone jack that could have cut the circuit internal speaker because of the incorrect removal of the headphone jack, but it is not true because I've noticed that its a problem with the angle I keep tilt of the screen.

    On the passage of the screen at any angle above 90 or 100 degrees, the speakers cut in and are activated once its below 80 degrees.

    I'm a little worried about the words on it?

    Kind regards



    Thank you Alaa,

    The problem is now solved, mainly the mobile hinge was obstruction in fact the thread that connects the speakers, according to the service technician. Need to replace the wiring had been damaged by the hinge. A manufacturing problem small on the wire does not correctly connected to the hinge. Thank you

  • Lenovo Ideapad 100: Removing the battery

    Hello, I have problems with my removing the battery. As my title says, I have a Lenovo ideapad 100, and I'm supposed to send it off for repairs. For my problem, I need to take out the battery because it is not part of the problem; However, I can't get out. I've read here to take off the base, but in trying to do this, it seems he breaks the internal clamps keep attached. I don't want to keep these break just to pay for them to be repaired afterwards. Is there an easier way to take this base off?

    Those who may be generic instructions. In the case of your machine, you can contact the Service to confirm, but my feeling is that it does not apply to batteries regarded as cards.
