Lenovo Ideapad Y510p laptop not booting but showing light on power button

Hi,

 

My lenovo IdeaPad Y510p laptop is showing the light on the power button but does not get started. I even tried removing the battery and running the laptop only on power cord but still the problem persists.

 

It seems that the laptop is not getting booted at all but will keep on showing the light on the power button of the laptop. Pleaes let me know what is supposed to be done.It has been just two months since I bought this laptop and it was working fine earlier.

 

Thanks for your quick reply.

Hi Harsh,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

 

I’m sorry to hear that your Y510p Laptop is not turning ON. I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power, below are the steps to perform the same:

 

  1. Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
  2. Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.

If the issue persists even after performing Flee-Power, I would suggest you to contact our Technical Support for further Assistance to get the details of the nearest Authorized Service Center to get the issue analyzed.

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi I have exactly the same problem except I am stuck at the Lenovo Screen Logo and it will not go any further.  I have all the various recovery disks and non of them allowed the machine to boot.

 

This is the 2nd Ideapad I have had this year due to technical issues and as I run a number of charities from the machine I have to have reliable technology.  Luckily I keep an old Thinkpad T61 as a back up which has been rock solid - touch wood.

 

Can anyone suggest how I can get past the Lenovo logo screen.  Many thanks

Having the exact same problem, loads the Lenovo screen but never boots.  Tested the hard drive and it's fine, beginning to wonder if it's something with the BIOS as neither the Novo button, DVD-Rom, and USB boot work either.

Managed to fix the problem as follows:

 

Used the Lenovo Recovery Disc titled - Start Recovery Disc No.1 (Start your Recovery Operation with this Disc) (Part No: 25-700121)  inserted in the CD drive and then pressed the Novo button on the side by the power supply input.

 

After eventually getting back into my laptop I did a full Chkdsk which took about 2 hours to check the whole disc. I also used the latest version of System Mechanic to do a complete complete up of my system and hard disc. (I doubt this was necessary though just an extra layer I did).

 

By the way just before everything crashed I did hear a weird whirring noise coming from the hard disc.

 

Hope this helps.

I'm sure its way too late to help OP, but I was able to resolve the original issue here by resetting the CMOS.  This is accomplished using a paperclip to jumper the CMOS contacts located under the RAM chips, which must be removed to access.  They are square contacts and are labeled on the motherboard.
