Re: Lenovo R500 won't turn on.

Hi Kino_tosko,


Welcome to Lenovo Community!


As per the query we understood that you are facing issues with system NO POST on your ThinkPad R500.


  • Check removing the battery and connect only the power adapter.
  • Perform power drain and check it once, to proceed with power drain, remove power adapter and battery hold the power button for 30 seconds and after that connect only power adapter and try switching ON the system.
  • If possible try removing the CMOS battery and check only connecting AC power adapter.

Hope this helps.


Best regards,

Hemanth Kumar
