can't turn on my Lenovo 3000 N200

 

Hello, I've got a problem with my Lenovo 3000 N200 laptop.

Yesterday I used it without it's power supply, so it discharged. I let it charge, but none of the indicating power lights are lit up even though the power supply is good. It has now ''charged'' all night, but nothing has changed, no power lights and I can't turn it on. I'm confused, it's the first time when something like this happens, I haven't dropped it or anything it just completely discharged..

I already tried 2 times this trick when you remove the battery, push the power button for about 30 seconds and then put battery back in, but it didn't work.. :/

Any ideas or it's dead?

hi dogdays.
can you try to remove the battery and use only ac power to start-up your computer?

could be power cord or mainboard issue due to "no power lights"
i believe you don't have valid warranty but is it possible to contact local support center? you'll need probably some more help to diagnose the problem.

yes, seems like I will have to search for proper help, but my laptop is like 2 years old, so no warranty.. this could be a problem.

that's why i suggested you to contact "local" support center. my opinion, if it's mainboard issue, no need to fix it cause it may cost you lots of money so it'd be better to buy new one in this case.

Test power supply with volt/ohm meter
if you have not already.

If good, and no lights on laptop when you
plug it in, the dc jack may be at fault.
(Try Gentle wiggling of the plug to see if you
can get the leds to light.)

I think the N200 has dc jack on a cable, so it can be
replaced.
