Ideapad S10-3t won't boot LED Indicators blinking

Hello,
First of all i would like to mention than i bought this laptop used from e-bay and i was so unlucky that the issue occurred 10 days after the warranty expired.

well the issue was that the net-book suddenly won't boot when i press the power button just the led indicators flashing and nothing more , well i was researching for hours and hours and i temporary fixed it after removing the battery and trying both the power button and the recovery button ( it didn't work at first i had to do it many many times) , then just started to work and told me that there where a bios reset. after some daysthat i had formatted the disk and installed ubuntu on the netbook, the problem occurred again, only that this time it won't fix no matter how many times i am trying with power button and recovery button. ( i suspect it could happens because i formated the disk and the rescue button does not work as it should?)

Is there something i can do or did i wasted my money for ever?

hi asvestomix.

you didn't mention that you are able to see the lenovo ogo at start-up or having blank screen so guessing it could be hdd or ram issue.

can you give some more informations to diagnose the issue?

in this case, could be graphic card, lcd or connector issue. do you have vga/hdmi cable to check if the graphic card works?

S10-3t is quite tricky when it comes to dissasembly.. ill take a look for a manual.
Meanwhile, you did wipe out recovery when you formatted.

 

 is there anyway you can pull out HDD and check for failure?

-Are the HDD LEDs the ones blinking? or just all of them?

 

 Im thinking with the disassembly you attempted, RAM or other device could be loose.

S10-3t manual- the best i can find at the moment.

 

Battery should be on the motherboard.
