i bought his laptop 14 months ago, just as the year of warranty was ending I started having issues with the battery where I could only turn it on when it's plugged in. I contacted Lenovo late to find out my warranty had been out for a week so they couldn't help. I decided to deal with it as I could still use it on battery once it was on m, but now two months later I had this issue where I tried to turn it on and the keyboard light would blink on then off immediately and it doesn't turn on, not even the fan or anything. After a few attempts I got it on but once off it's happening again and I can't turn it on now.
i tried unplugging the battery and doing the drain static charge thing and I saw in another topic it was a similar issue and the sw2 switch was the culprit but when I opened up the laptop there is no sw 2 switch just a square on the board that says sw2, I assumed this was a different model yoga 14. Can anyone please help me? I need this laptop to last me through college

Hello Epsilon54, welcome to the Community,
Sorry to have to read about your experience and my compliments on your diagnosis so far. Have you been able to verify that the battery is definitely being charged? If you're not able to check this yourself I'm sure a local servicer would be able to assist.
Something else I've experienced in the past, very rarely but nevertheless worth mentioning, is a defective AC adapter. Although the adapter was delivering the correct voltage, measured using a volt meter, when connected to the notebook and under load it went on strike, perhaps you could try a different power adapter?
