Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y410p won't power on... No power light?

Hi @jack61  , 

 

Greetings. 

 

Part number :  90002915 VIQY0 MB 47W HD+ W8S SYSTEM BOARDS 

Integrated GPU built inboard NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 755M 2GB (included)

Processor not included , 

 

I agree that motherboard replacement may not be that logical due to pricing.

You can readily get a second hand Y410p on sale and simply swap parts aside from motherboard which I usually do  ,

Parts also of your Y410p is also expensive if sold per piece like processor , ram , LCD etc. 

So best that you take time to decide on your next step too. 

 

Feel free to post and share here on our community at any time .

Your information may serve a great value to other members. 

 

Cheers

 


I had the charger checked, it's good. Checked for power at power supply in laptop, it's good. So it is pointing to motherboard and that is gonna be a BIG problem as the only one I found in the USA was $560 :0 My GOSH, I paid $600 for my notebook, then $350 for more memory, 500GB SSD, 9 cell battery etc. All the other ones were from China in the $200-$300 range. It is a 25-45 day to get here shipping.

I know how to swap out the motherboard, but lots of horror stories about them not fitting right or quitting after 2 months. I guess they can heat up (and other tricks) a bad board so it will work for a couple months, past the 30 day warranty period. So I have a problem, try to fix it or have a expensive brick.

 

If I were to buy another used y410p the cheapest I've seen is $550 and up, way up. I might take a chance and try one from China once and if that don't work, get another used y410p.

 

Yes, I keep post here till this is resolved/fixed as to help others.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad Y410p won't power on... No power light?

Still debating which route to go? Smiley Frustrated

 

1. Get a motherboard online. So far in USA, I've only found one and it's $540!!! All the rest are from China ranging from $200 and up. Long shipping wait for these, longer yet if I have to send one back. I'm told by local computer tech stores that success rates are not very good... most tech stores won't do laptop motherboards because of that. I contacted 5 local reputable tech stores to get info even though I plan on doing this myself.

 

2. Get a used y410p off eBay. Cheapest I found so far are $500 and up... way up. I bidded on one for $475 and lost last weekend. These are in USA. I haven't attempted to try China yet.

 

3. Go with China? Since Lenovo is made in China, most parts are from there and are cheaper. Just the long shipping wait.

 

3. Do nothing... resign to the fact I have a expensive BRICK.

I'm into this laptop for $600 plus upgrades, $350, total: $950 as of November 2015.  Smiley Surprised

 

Any of the above can be expensive. I haven't rushed into anything becaus of that. What would YOU do?

 

Question, the user & service manual is for Y410P & Y510P... so would a Y510P MB work in my Y410P?

Hi jack61 , 

 

 

What I usually do is check for any guys selling cheap model to either build that or build the original pc.

 

The parts you have are still usable on another pc with same specs requirement like the RAM , processor , heatsinks , harddrive , LCD , and even the plastics .

 

If you can do good haggling , you would be suprised that it can even be enough to get a new model specially those folks that are badly needing it . 

 

Check also your local tech shops and recycle center for possible spare boards too. 

 

Finally , don't rush and balance your options . DDR4 are now released with skylake processor so option for a new rig maybe ok.  Price of spareparts for older model would go up since it would be harder to get and manufacturer may no longer be manufacturing it after 2 years. 

 

Computing technology nowadays is really fast . 

 

Goodluck on your endeavors. 

 

 

Regards

Lenovo Ideapad Y410p won't power on... No power light?

Back in June 2014 I wrote:
Went to turn on my Lenovo Ideapad Y410p laptop and nothing happened! No led lights with power source on and battery in. 
When I used it two days ago, I ran AVG and spy-bot and everything was fine. Used it a little bit and turned it off. Now nothing???
Did the power/battery disconnect with holding power button for 30 seconds... nothing.
Both batteries 9 cell and 6 cell had full charge, tried my other Lenovo charger... no go.
A surge couldn't have happened as the laptop is plugged into same strip as my other lenovo laptop is and that one is working fine.
I determined that the MB was bad. Used MB's were in excess of $450, so I decided to wait awhile for prices to come down.

 Update, I waited almost two years before getting a used MB as they cost in excess of $450 in 2014. The prices have finally come down and I got one off eBay for $120.
The MB I got off eBay arrived last week, very well packaged so it wouldn't get damaged. I went down to the local computer store and got some thermal paste for the GPU and CPU for the swap since this MB didn't come with a CPU. I'm discouraged!!! Put it all back together and no power light. I do have the second light, a blinking orange light which shows battery is charging, then it went to a white steady light? Nothing turns on though. So, I took out battery, AC, press power 7 sec and turn on. If nothing then take out battery, AC, RAM, turn it on without RAM, turn it off in half a minute by pressing power 7 sec, put RAM back in and tried it. No power would mean No Lights including LED. From what I saw I really had no power situation of former dead mobo. But after changing motherboard I do have LED flashing so it has power and the problem is in something else. But what? I tore it all the way back down to taking out the CPU and put it back together minus the compartment cover. I especially tripple checked the CPU to make sure it was locked and made sure power button ribbon cable was secure and all other connections were secure & tight.
No joy Smiley Sad All it's showing is the blinking orange battery light.
So what is next??? Would a bad power button board be a reason not having a power light and not power on? or is this problem something else like the DC Power Jack plug in cable? Or simply another bad M
Or just call quits and write it off as a $900 brick? I'm into this laptop for over $900 now counting what I bought it for, upgrades and now the MB.
One EXPENSIVE brick.

Re: Where did my new topic "Lenovo Ideapad Y410p won't power on" go???

Hello Jack61

Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.

Sounds like you either got another faulty MB, seeing as how it was used/refurbished it could happen.

Or something else is possibly burnt out.

 

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

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

I did that multiple times including after both times I tore it down to the CPU.

No joy. Why would I be getting a blinking orange light with the battery in, no power light and nothing else.

I take battery out, no lights, fans, noise of any kind at all.

 

So what is next??? Would a bad power button board be a reason not having a power light and not power on? or is this problem something else like the DC Power Jack plug in cable? Or simply another bad M
