Re: Ideapad 120s wont turn on at all

Hello KaiyaWilson

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

It may be stuck in sleep mode. Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.

(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)
1. Turn the unit off
2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter
3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds
4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter
5. Turn the unit on as normal

Also, you could try to boot up with the Novo button, this should land you in the recovery menu.


Otherwise, if it refuses to boot up at all, then you may want to get in touch your local Lenovo support line and take advantage of your warranty for a possible service.


Below is the link to the phone list where you can find these numbers

Hope this helps, let us know how you get on.
