Scenario 1: My computer will not start. The power status LED flashes for a short time but the system gives no other reaction -- no HDD, no fan, and no display. What can I do?
Scenario 2: Yesterday I shutdown to hibernate or sleep and it doesn't resume. I can see the power LED but the system gives no other reaction -- no HDD, no fan, and no display. What can I do?
1: Remove the AC adapter plug.
2: Remove the battery.
3: Press the power button for about 30 seconds. This will clear the capacitors.
4: Insert the battery and plug in the AC adapter.
5: Press the power button.
Your computer should boot as normal. If this does not help at first , try this process again.
I have just bought a Lenovo S10e from a friend, and I am experiencing the exact same problems....
(scenario 1 & 2)
It never boots, but just sort of shuts down with a 'click' sound.
I have tried to follow the above steps 1-5,
BUT unfortunately It does not fix the problem !
The computer does in fact start booting, and shows the Lenovo Quick Start menu :-)
BUT it stops and turns off in the middle of windows startup.
Or if I press F11 for recovery boot, it will stop and turn off before this has been completed.
Or if I leave it in the Quick Start Menu it will just turn off.
I have tried to follow the steps like 20-some times - but so far it has shut down in the middle each time!
Any other suggestions out there?
Or must I give up and trash the computer?!
Thx in advance for any help you can give.
(My) Problem seems solved...
I checked the Lenovo Support site for 'no power' :
And I tried double testing my power source:
4) Verify the AC power source is working by attaching another device to the outlet.unquote
Then I also tried with a different power source...
Voila - computer booted sucessfully :-)
So in my case, it seems to be the the AC adapter which was the problem.
Mystery solved for now.
