Lenovo S10-3t Reset Trick

After a normal reboot, my lenovo S10-3t suddenly was reporting that the battery was completely dead and that the wifi was "disabled" even though the switch for wifi was set to the "on" position.  After doing some searching, I discovered that removing the battery and power cable and holding down the power button for 40 seconds resets some bios configuration which brought battery status and wifi back to life.

  1. Wow I'm so glad I found this. This happened to me a few days ago. Lost battery "charge" and wifi/bluetooth.

    Followed your trick, and I've got battery back, but not wifi. When I toggle the switch, I get visual confirmation in the bottom right-hand corner that toggling occurred, but my wifi reports no connections available and the bottom left-hand corner icon for wifi is unlit. Not sure what to do next...
