Ideapad 510-151SK not powering up or charging light shown when plugged in?

2020-09-23, 11:18 AM

Hi

 

I can't get my ideapad 510-151SK laptop to switch on. I've tried to charge it for 5 hours but no light shows on the side and still doesn't power up when I try to switch it on.

 

I've tried the power lead in another ideapad and it works fine charging it without an issue so its definitely not the lead. 

 

Can anyone offer any advice?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi Boing82,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

When a device is showing no sign of life (sound, charging light, power light) at all, then the computer is most likely dead and have experienced a hardware fault. In this case, my guess would be motherboard is fried/faulty/dead.

 

I'd suggest contacting Lenovo support for your country directly (mail, e-ticket, phone) and see what can be done. Most likely it will have to be sent in to be assessed by an authorized technician.

 

Regards

Well, there could always be a chance, but I do not believe it's the case. Might be worth trying of course. 

 

The reason I am confident it's the motherboard is that the AC adapter should be able to power the device and start it, if it was only a battery problem.  However, since there is both no charging light nor any sound coming from the device, that makes me think it's a motherboard issue.
