Thinkpad W541 Turns on and off

2018-10-11, 4:39 AM

Hello, my Lenovo W541 has been strange recently. Its night at the time of writing this, the laptop worked perfectly fine this morning. Here’s what’s happening: I turn on my computer and it sits black for like 6 seconds, then the Thinkpad logo and Press ENTER to go into bios screen comes up. Then it attempts to boot into Windows and shuts off. It seems like a timed reaction because I’ve tried booting into the bios to access recovery options, I goto recover system, the screen pops up for like 5 seconds until the whole computer turns off again. I’ve tried a full hard reset, testing the power supply, and taking out and reinstalling the RAM. I’m almost sure it’s not the operating system. Help!
