Computer startup problems

I have a yoga 2. It was left in sleep mode until the battery was fully discharged. When I try to start it, it comes on for a few seconds then shuts off. After it shuts off it will not even try to start. If I push and hold the reset button it will start again for a few seconds and quit. On a particularly cold day it started and ran for approximately 5 minutes. Is there a thermal shutdown built into the system? If so how do you reset it? Any other ideas that may get me up and running?

Re: Computer startup problems

Try pressing and hold the power button for 30 seconds; then plug the laptop in. Also if you're able to, unplug the battery, and hold the power button for 30 seconds. That'll need a bit of dissassembly, so refer to for reference on that.
