Y510p gfx /mobo

I stupidly left my y510p laptop plugged in during a thunderstorm. Now the white power button led comes on, but nothing else happens. The keyboard does not light up, the fans do not spin up, and the only way to shut it down it to remove Power+battery+remove a powered usb hub. 

The mechanic says that the nvidia gfx card is blown. 

1. Shouldn't the intel iGPU take over. 

2. If there is something else wrong is there, what are the possibilities? 

3. I don't think that the system is posting.

Re: Y510p gfx /mobo

Hi drajitsh




On a normal breakdown of the discrete VGA like due normal overheating that the integrated Intel chip would still allow normal display but as there would be other possible parts that get damaged with the power surge on capacitor and chip on the systemboard.


A solid power with black display on both internal and external screen shows failed power on self test as it falied to verify functional component such as graphic devices on the latter stage of POST.


Board level technician may be able to map out which but on multiple failed parts, a whole board replacement maybe a better option.


Try to check back with the tech if they would be able to perform the mapping else check options for motherboard replacement or how the tech would suggest.


Hope this help answer your query.

Re: Y510p gfx /mobo

I'm just cheap then. I don't want to pay 10000 for a 750gfx -- specially as I don't get the time to play any games. Motherboard replacement is even more prohibitive @25000. Spend 3x that a get a new system.

But thanks for your help.

I would suggest also unplugging it and removing the battery.  Then disconnect the CMOS battery and press the power button a couple of times.  Put it back together and try to start it.  It may help and is free.
