Thinkpad p70 does not turn on

2016-05-19, 18:04 PM

I have a new lenovo workstation p70, it was working fine, but yesterday stopped working.

 

When I turned on my machine, I only could hear the fans, and see some lights in the keyboard, the screen is black.

 

I called lenovo, not helpful at all, they just said that they will send a box so they can see what's the problem.

 

I don't wish to wait 3 weeks. Any help please?

 

I tried to remove the battery, use the technique of 30 seconds pushing the power switch without battery, it didn't work.

 

Thank you

Solved! See the solution

Try to press F1 a couple times when it's powering up.  See if you can get into BIOS?  If yes, try to reset all BIOS settings to default.  See if that helps!

Just a shot in th dark here: get an HDMI cable and plug it into the HDMI port and then into a monitor or TV. See if you get video.

It's possible that a memory module has become misaligned. Did you add any memory to the system?

How much memory is in the system? It's possible that one of the SODIMM modules has popped loose.
