Power supply overheated

2016-11-04, 3:01 AM

Please Help,

My power supply overheated and blew my computer!  Is there any way you can help me?

My warranty ran out July 2016 an it blew up just after my 70th birthday, September 2016.    I am only on social security so can't afford to buy a new computer.

Any help for me?

Thank you,

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !


Sorry to hear of the problems you have encountered.  From what you have described it is very difficult to ascertain what the problem was or could be.  The problem might be as simple as purchasing another charger / adapter or it could be more extensive like a failed motherboard. Terms like "blew up" are rather vague when describing a problem.


Since your computer is out of warranty I would suggest you take it to a local computer repair center and have them assess it.  If you have a local college or tech school in your area, see if their student IT department will look at the computer for you.  That would be a low cost alternative.
