Help! My G560 will not turn on.

I purchased this early last fall (2010) so it's very new.  It was working fine yesterday morning.  I stepped away and when I came back it wouldn't come out of hibernation.  Can't power up at all.  I unplugged AC adapter and removed battery.  When I put them back in, the battery light comes on and doesn't blink but when I press the power button it briefly flashes on and then it disappears along with the battery light (even though it's plugged in).  I switched to a new socket and repeated the process and the same thing happens--battery light comes on, press the power button, it flashes and then both lights disappear. 

 

Please help.  I teach online college courses with this laptop and I need it up and running.    Any ideas?  Smiley Happy

Re: Help! My G560 will not turn on.

jbrowder, welcome to the forum,

 

please try the following; remove the battery and power cable, press the start button 10 times keeping it depressed each time for 5 seconds, the last time keep it depressed for 10 seconds. After doing this please attach the power cable, not the battery, and start the system.

 

If everything works OK shut down again and insert the battery and then start it again.

 

This sounds like some sort of crazy magic, but you'd be surprised how often it has helped. Let us know how you get on.

I did what you said.  After the part with the start button, I plugged the AC power cable in (no battery in it) and pressed the power button.  The light briefly flashed on then immediately disappeared.

That's not good Smiley Sad

 

As you bought the system in fall 2010 I assume you still have warranty on the system. I don"t like doing it, but I think you should give Lenovo support a call.

 

Let us know how you get on.

No I didn't. I had this problem earlier and I didn't use my machine for months. But one day when I tried to switch on it worked and continued to work for several day and now I have same issue again.

Re: Help! My G560 will not turn on.

Hi all,

 I am new to the forum, my laptop does not boot up, nor any post sound nor lights appear. I have a Lenovo G560, i5, 460m, 500g, 6gigs ram, it is out of its warranty, I returned it to Lenovo, they replaced the mainboard last year October 2011, which was within the warranty. Now 3 months out of warranty the problem has returned again. A new mainboard is the price of a new laptop!! Any Suggestions?? Please help....
