Computer Dead, but power button on


I have a lenovo v570. It went to sleep when I closed it, and won't wake up. I used an ASUS charger on it and it was working fine, and charging, but then i closed it to sleep and it wont wake up. It's a 19V, 2.37 amp charger from asus. Did I destroy it with that charger? If I try to turn it on again, the fan whirs and the button lights up, but no bios even. The lenovo charger is higher amperage ~6 amps, 19v as well.

Hi Dtruel,


Welcome to Lenovo Community!


I’m sorry to hear that your V570 Laptop is not booting to windows and the Power Indicator and Fan is running. I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power, 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.

Also check the laptop after connecting to an external display, please let me know the findings.


Hope to hear back soon


Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Re: Computer Dead, but power button on

Just curious, Why would you use an Asus charger for your Lenovo laptop?
