Good luck

Thanks for the help. I tried looking for a mobo in these links but all they had was S9 and S10 IdeaPad motherboards. Even if I do find it, I think it'll be too pricey...I mean I got the laptop used for $375 in working condition 6 months ago. You think I'll get my money by selling the parts? It has an i5, and all other parts work..

 

Thanks!

If you have some other laptop at home , take its RAM out and test it in this laptop. And the option of bios recovery is still possible. So check these once and see if it works.

I'm going to try the ram again, as for the BIOS recovery how can I do it if I can't see the "Lenovo" screen?

Lenovo Y570 Seemingly Fixed Itself, Advice wanted

Hi, so I recently dropped a battery on my laptop and it fell in between the trackpad and the spacebar, which caused the display to immediately fail. I didn't understand what the problem was, but the problem was almost exactly the same as http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/IdeaPad-Y-U-V-Z-and-P-series/Y570-Will-not-start-Black-Screen/td-p/86078... . However, the next day, the computer began to start again, but it would shut off after about a minute, and now it seemingly works fine. I still suspect something happened with the motherboard, but I was wondering if I should get it checked out even if everything works now or are there certain things that I'm not seeing that could lead to more issues down the line. I'm also no longer under warranty, because if I was I would probably get it checked out anyways. Thank you for any advice,

Guru

If it is working fine, then I would say that just take care and dont drop any thing else on it.

Also, take care while moving it. Hope you dont travel much with it.

 

Could be that when the battery fell (Which Battery?), it made some connection loose inside the laptop, and you saw those issues. Definitely, the damage cannot be ascertained without a harware check and you should only do it if you see the issue again.

 

This is my personal advice and opinion, I am an expert at taking care of my laptops and still weird things happen sometimes. (Like the 'Q' key failure after 8 months, I dont even touch the laptop keyboard, maybe thats the reason Smiley Tongue)

I should have been clear when I said battery I meant a AAA battery like one you would put into a TV remote. Thanks for your advice.

If it was just a AAA battery, should not cause much damage but you never know.

 

The other day I was fixing my laptop and I dropped a screwdriver on it Smiley Tongue (not from great height, it just slipped) , nothing happened.

 

So, as I said, could have just been something temporary, keep monitoring and hope nothing happens. Good luck.
