Lenovo Y50 suddenly shut down and wont turn back on?



Today I was playing a game called Overwatch and I noticed that my laptop was getting pretty hot. This had happened before so I didn't think much of it. Then, suddenly, my screen went black and there was no signs of life for the laptop, even when it was plugged into the AC adapter. I let it cool down for a little while and upon plugging the AC adapter back in, i noticed that the power brick was making a ticking noise. I suspect that either the laptop just overheated or there was some sort of power surge to the computer, seeing as it wont turn back on. Help me please?

Hi there, Filip –


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


Any error you are getting on running hardware test?


Secondly, Overheating is a common issue in laptops, especially on gaming, because there is only 4 possibility for overheating of laptop,


  1. There may some software or malware that is taxing your CPU.
  2. Problem with PSU itself.
  3. Problem regarding Heatsink/Fans/Thermal paste.
  4. High ambient or room temperature.

Update us how it goes.
