Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 motherboard shorted

Hello All

 

Recently I had an issue with my lenovo Z50 70. First it was not getting charged (no charge light) and didnot power on. I tried charging now and then for couple of days and one day i saw smoke from speaker grill. Not sure why all these issues happened. One of my friend told me that motherboard is shorted. Laptop is out of warranty. Need help: where can I buy a motherboard (inexpensive, ready to downgrade)  and where can I get it changed? I stay in Boston.

 

Mine is Lenovo IdeaPad Z50-70 i7-4510U 2GHz motherboard. 

 

Any help is appreaciated. 

 

TIA

Hello Grpraveenkumar

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Check the following posting from Lenovo, it should help you with ordering parts from the right places.

 

Doesn`t really matter what, but a motherboard will always cost some good change. At least in my experience.

 

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

In this case, if the machine's no longer under warranty, I would try and reseat the CPU, reapply a thermal paste and check for burnt areas on the motherboard. Otherwise, I would contact Lenovo and report the issue as you may need to send the unit for warranty work.

 

I would recommend contacting Lenovo service centres and applying the normal phone techniques to get it replaced promptly since doing anything would void the warranty.

Hi Shashi

 

Thanks for your reply. 

 

My machine is out of warranty (1 year 3 months Smiley Sad ). I will try to fix it like you told and update you the result (may take a while).
