Lenovo Edge 2 1580 will not power up

I have a lenovo edge 2 1580 and it worked perfectly fine last night.  Today I pushed the power button and nothing happened.  The little white LED next to the power button is lit but the screen will not turn on and neither will the fans.  I have tried unplugging the battery and RAM and holding the power button but that didn't work.  I also tried putting a paper clip in the little hole next to the power button but that didn't work either.  Has anyone else come across this issue?  I have searched the forums and tried everything I could find but nothing seems to work.

 

The laptop is still under warranty but if I send it in, I was told it will take 2-4 weeks before I will get it back and I have important work information that I need to get from there and it can't wait that long.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, Furino -

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

1: Remove the AC adapter plug.

2: Remove the battery.

3: Press the power button for about 30 seconds. This will clear the capacitors.

4: Insert the battery and plug in the AC adapter.

5: Press the power button.

 

Update us how it goes.      

 

 

 

  

Regards,

Thank you for your reply. It turns out that there was a hardware issue with the motherboard and a technician had to come and replace it. Everything worked perfectly after the new motherboard was installed.

Re: Lenovo Edge 2 1580 will not power up

I have no idea how to remove the battery, but I unplugged the laptop and pressed the power button for 30 seconds. After that the machine finally turned on normally, if a little slower than usual. So glad to have it back! Thank you for the advice.
