Legion Y520 start problem

Hi ppl, i just got a bad issue with my Y520.

I have this laptop for like 2 months now and yesterday i put it in sleep mode, then i wake up today and when i try to start it, it doesnt work, the keyboard iluminates for 5 sec and then only the Num Lock button keeps on, no screen response, it doesnt show the lenovo logo and stays black all the time.

I tried to start by pressing novo button to recovery and see if i could do something but it just do the same sequence, the keyboard iluminates for like 5 sec then it goes off. Tried to restart manually by pressing the on-button to go off and then on and nothing.

Try this, sometimes this works and sometimes this doesen't.


1. With it turned off disconnect AC adapter and Remove the Battery, hold the power button down for a full 30 seconds.

2. Connect AC adapter only and see if windows will load.

Current System - Lenovo Y520. Say thanks with a Kudo!

Do You managed to know what the problem was? I'm experiencing exactly the same as You.


Thanks in advance!


P.S.: Removing the battery, holding the power on button, connecting the charger and power on didn't work for me.
