Ideapad Y700 - Is it dead?



I believe it's dead, but I'll give it a try here anyway.


I have a Lenovo Ideapad Y700. When I hit the power button, it lights up. The fans spin up for a few seconds and then stop.

Occasionally, the keyboard lights up briefly.

NOTHNG on the display. Not even the background light is turned on.

Tried with an external display connected to the HDMI port. Nothing.


Possible water damage...


Out of warranty too.


Is it dead? I doubt a new motherboard is worth the money. I found MB's at $300 on ebay.


Thanks for any help or insights.
