According to Lenovo and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, nearly 50,500 Lenovo ThinkCentre computers are being recalled for an overheating and fire hazard. Lenovo has received two complaints worldwide of fire that have damaged the computers.
The ThinkCentre models affected are the M70z and the M90z, which were sold in stores, over the phone, and online between May 2010 and January 2012. Lenovo states that a defect in an internal component can cause the power supply to overheat and potentially cause a fire.
Lenovo will replace the affected power supplies for free. To check if your computer is affected, Lenovo’s website has a page where you can enter your computer’s serial number.
