Y510p won't start, except for the primary GPU's fan

2014-09-20, 12:07 PM

I'm having this big issue with my Y510p, just wondering if anyone had the same problem and was able to solve it somehow:

 

We I press the power button, it lights up, and so does the keyboard.

The fan of the primary GPU starts working really fast.

The screen doesn't turns on.

After something like 10 seconds, the computer shutdown completly, and this process repeats indefinitely.

 

Last time I used the computer, Nvidia asked to update the video drivers. I said yes, but the download was stuck, so I just cancelled it. Anyhow, I don't think this is what triggered the malfunctioning, considering it didn't even start to install the update.

I have two Nvidia 750M working with SLI.

 

Can someone help me with this? :-(

Solved! See the solution

Tried it twice. It didn't work. It was fun to try to cast this spell, though.

Does it beep if you remove all of the RAM and try booting? Maybe reseat the CPU?

Well, I did not remove the CPU, but I removed everything else and disconecting the motherboard from all cables, like some people recomended thorugh the internet, but it till wouldn't work. I really needed this to work fast, so I just gave up and called third party support to help me.

Thanks for the help, guys.
