Ideapad 100s won't load and start

Good morning, 

slowly I'm driving crazy. My 100s worked perfectly fine last week. Now it won't turn on and also won't charge. No LED blinking no signal when pressing on start... the only thing i can hear is when i plug in the original charger, the 100s is bleeping like a healthy heart heart Monitor (no joking). 

Anybody with the same problems or maybe a solution ?

Re: Ideapad 100s won't load and start

Hi Shashi, 

thank you for your answer. The 100s is completely closed so i can't remove the battery without open it up.

I've also tried the tip from a similar question just to press the start button 15 sec. instead of open it but this was a failure. This was also the reason to open a new topic. Should I open the whole case of the 100s so I'am able to remove the battery?

Opening up the machine will be required. Please see pages 35-36 of your hardware manual:

So.. I just opened it and carefully removed the battery then 20 sec star holding -> connect charger -> 10 Sec star holding i've tried it 4 times with 30 seconds pause between each try. Nothing just a short quiet crackle when i plug in the charger

Flushing the CMOS is the other way and that involves pulling out the CMOS battery for at least 20 min and then connect it again.

 

Also, there could chances of motherboard failure. Hence i would suggest you visit the nearest Lenovo service centres for assistance. Schedule a Call-back for faster support.

 

Update us how it goes.

So I've tried this also but no reaction same heart monitor crackle. The link shows me no service centers near. I live near Hamburg and hoped to get a store where my notebook could be fixed.
