G580 Laptop wont charge or start up (no lights whatsoever)

So last night i had my laptop running with the charger pluggen in and before i went to bed i just locked it by pressing Windows + L. I dimmed the screen to lowest which is basically black. This morning i woke up and the laptop was completely off. There was no sign of it charging and it wasnt on. There were no lights on whatsoever. I unplugged the charger and put it back in. I took the battery out and put it back it. Still no sign of it turning on or being able to charge. Any suggestions? 

Thanks

Welcome to the Forums Kaeb! 

 

I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and then try to access BIOS. Below are the steps to perform the same:

  1. Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
  2. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.

Let us know if it helps.

I performed this but still nothing. I must mention that there was a lightning storm during the night and a surge may have occurred frying the motherboard.

Motherboard failure is usually conveyed by one beep, followed by three, four or five. Four beeps, followed by two, three or four beeps indicate serial or parallel port issues, which also implies a damaged motherboard.

 

You may be more comfortable taking the computer to a technician when it comes time to check the hardware. If you're not familiar with the inside of a computer, I would suggest you to visit the nearest authorised Lenovo authorised support for hardware assistance. Since doing anything would harm the system board or any sensitive parts.

 

Let us know how you get on.
