Ideapad S10-3t won't boot LED Indicators blinking

Hello,
First of all i would like to mention than i bought this laptop used from e-bay and i was so unlucky that the issue occurred 10 days after the warranty expired.

well the issue was that the net-book suddenly won't boot when i press the power button just the led indicators flashing and nothing more , well i was researching for hours and hours and i temporary fixed it after removing the battery and trying both the power button and the recovery button ( it didn't work at first i had to do it many many times) , then just started to work and told me that there where a bios reset. after some daysthat i had formatted the disk and installed ubuntu on the netbook, the problem occurred again, only that this time it won't fix no matter how many times i am trying with power button and recovery button. ( i suspect it could happens because i formated the disk and the rescue button does not work as it should?)

Is there something i can do or did i wasted my money for ever?

hi asvestomix.

you didn't mention that you are able to see the lenovo ogo at start-up or having blank screen so guessing it could be hdd or ram issue.

can you give some more informations to diagnose the issue?

Re: Ideapad S10-3t won't boot LED Indicators blinking

in this case, could be graphic card, lcd or connector issue. do you have vga/hdmi cable to check if the graphic card works?

S10-3t is quite tricky when it comes to dissasembly.. ill take a look for a manual.
Meanwhile, you did wipe out recovery when you formatted.

 

 is there anyway you can pull out HDD and check for failure?

-Are the HDD LEDs the ones blinking? or just all of them?

 

 Im thinking with the disassembly you attempted, RAM or other device could be loose.

S10-3t manual- the best i can find at the moment.

 

Battery should be on the motherboard.
