L480 not turning on

2021-02-11, 13:39 PM

Dear all,

 

My laptop was working as normal until Monday.

It had a black screen when I got back from work and nothing worked. Only the light of the "turning on-button" was glowing. I tried rebooting it by clicking on the turn-on button for 10 seconds. While the button turns off and then back on, the computer itself remained black.

 

I already took out the battery and then tried to reboot it. I also took out the backup battery and tried to reboot it after putting it back in. I connected an external screen.

Nothing worked, not even the fan is engaging when pressing the on-button. The only thing that is reacting is the light in the button. 

 

Could somebody tell me whether this is a common problem and what I can do about it?

 

Best,

Max

Hello Max005138,

 


Sorry for the late response.

If you already tried these steps, then I would suggest that you contact the hardware tech support if the machine is still under warranty, otherwise you can go to your local hardware technician for repair.
