G50-80 - Laptop not turning on or charging

2017-03-02, 23:52 PM

I have had the Lenovo G50-80 laptop for about a year and a half and have never had any problems with it until the other day. My laptop won't turn on or charge. The lights on the side that are on when it is either on or charger are not on even when I plug it in. 

 

I have tried plugging it in and holding the power button and even taking the battery out and holding the power button then putting the battery in, plugging it into the charger and trying to turn it on but it doesn't work. 

 

Is there any way to know whether it is my battery or charger?

Hi there, Amb304       -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today

 

Do this test -

1) Switch off the laptop.

2) Disconnect power supply. Keep the battery connected.

3) Try to Turn ON the laptop.

 

If the laptop does not turn ON, the battery is faulty.

 

Also, Try turning the laptop off, removing the battery, unplug the AC adapter, press and hold the power button for thirty seconds, install the battery back into the laptop but don't connect the power cable and try to start the laptop on battery power. 

Make sure when you are plugging the cord in for the laptop that you plug it in the normal orientation as if it still had the grounding plug so you don't reverse the polarity of the socket. I don't think it should affect anything, but it's probably better to just keep it plugged in correctly.

 

Update us how it goes.

If the power adapter is not getting warm when plugged in, try a different outlet.
