Lenovo G50-45 no longer powers on

2020-01-06, 0:32 AM

I've had a Lenovo G50-45 notebook since 2014, and have had minimal problems with it. However, on New Years Day, I put it on sleep mode for a few hours, and when I came back it wouldn't turn on. None of these have worked: holding the power button, unplugging and replugging the charger with and without the battery inserted, letting it sit for a few days, or trying different chargers.

 

The only other options I see are to either disassemble the thing and see if something fried, or just replace it wholesale. But I wanted to turn to the forums for any further advice or possible solutions before I try them.

 

OS is Windows 10.

Hi Novella,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Are the light indicators still working when you plug the machine into the power adapter?

 

You can also try using the Novo button to power the machine as suggested in a similar article.

 

If this does not help I would recommend having the battery tested or replaced as suggested in a similar article here.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack_Lenovo1

Jack_lenovo1,

Neither the battery nor charger indicators light up, even when using different ones.

I've attempted the Novo button solution, but it seems to do nothing.

I don't believe the issue is with the laptop battery or adapter; it might be something internal. I'm going to open it up, see if it's a problem with the CMOS battery or something, and ideally not the motherboard or circuitry.
