Sorry I missed it. "Clone"

Right there you wrote it's a Clone so these are rarely made to be serviced. Why would Lenovo know about the Clones?

My bet is you won't. It's a clone.

So that means Lenovo won't know and most of these clone makers don't want to be found so you have to find your cheap exit. I looked at the cost of a replacement and it's less than a common shop counter charge.

You bought this clone from someone. They may have a braindead one that can act as a donor.

And look up Howard's forums. Be sure to state country as it would do little good if the spare part is in Grozny and you are in Sydney.

...benefit from actually taking it into a reputable brick/mortar repair shop. Since they handle so many different models/parts on a daily basis, they can assist much easier than anyone online IME.

The trick now is locating the right shop that is willing to go beyond the plug n play repair gigs that provide higher profit margins than what you are asking. Good luck.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
