Hello Lenovo community!
I bought my refurbished Y510P for about 3 months ago and it had worked great until recently my laptop would just shut off and would not boot up again for a certain amount of time followed with my AC adapter makes a weird loud pulsing noise. I tried removing my AC adapter from my laptop and pressing the power on button but it didn't work. After 1 hour later I plug in back my AC adapter and the noise is gone and it can boot up again but with a strange event, my computer would smell like burnt electronics and metal from the AC charger jack.
I am worried if it just my AC adapter is faulty or it be something wrong with my AC charger jack because this is the second time it did this to me.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Oh alright. I try a different charger. Just ordered an OEM one on ebay.
Hopefully that does the trick. I will update this post if it happens again. (And hopefully it isn't my computer's internal charger that is the culprit.)
Thanks a plenty, JakeSully.

I would recommend to boot first time while the battery is not put in.
1. it might be that the battery is the damaged element
2. if the charger is bad, it might have also damaged the battery
If your computer works with the new charger (and without the battery) properly, you can try it with the battery. Just for sure.

I have the same problem with my y510p, the notebook shutting down, the ac adapter gives a strange noise, and i cant turn the nobebook back on. After some time, i can turn it back on but it smells.

If you have warranty, I would recommend sending it back to their place to fix it.
My laptop did the same thing after replacing the AC Adapter. I have a feeling it's something with the motherboard not drawing in power correctly. When they returned it, the work order mentioned that my motherboard is replaced and now computer works great.

I feel you there.
This is what exactly happened to me as well. Just a bit of gaming and "pzZzzt," powers off, and pulsing noise coming out of my ac adapter.
Definitely get it checked out.
