my Y70 just died yesterday shortly after screen flickering. The flickering started a day earlier at a random pattern, barley noticeable.
Yesterday however the flickering increased somewhat and the laptop suddently shut down. I was able to restart but while booting it shut down again. A couple time I could access the boot menue ( I tried to boot in recovery) but it almost instantly shut down. This play was going on for maybe 5-6 times. Then the laptop wasn't powering on any more at all.
I was able to see that the battery indication was showing 86% during one of the failed start ups.
Of course I am out of warranty since 4 month
Contacting the support is a pain (and I wasnt able yet). Punching in the S/N in the first screen was just creating a wait animation and nothing else. I tried two different browser though both with the same result.
On the second screen I was able to enter the S/N but it was generating this cryptic message. BTW clicking "yes" does of course nothing.
message (under the black box the S/N was just repeated)
Does any one else expirienced such behavior?
I assume it's hardware related, can some one with knowledge point me in the right direction to find the faulty part?
Thanks in advance
