Lenovo Flex 3 1480 won’t stay on

2018-01-08, 2:40 AM

My laptop will not stay powered on, it will start up but then the fan will kick on really loud and turn off, won’t stay on for more than a minute. No way it can be getting over heated as I have it sitting on a desk and hadn’t even been using it for a minute before it started doing this. Need to figure out how to fix this issue. The computer is less than 2 years old.

I'm experienceing the same as are many others.  Less than 2 years old, crzy power/charging issues.  I've tried unseating the battery and draining the charge with no success.  Going to try a new charging cable.  Others have soldered direct to the battery!  What a joke, there's probably an insane amount of bad charging chips on flex 3 models out there burning out after 16 months....
