Im having a little power problem with my Lenovo T410, after replacing the hard drive. After I replaced the hard drive, I was installing an OS and it powered off because I haven't charged it for about 2 days. When I plugged in my AC charger, it won't turn on.
After many trials, it seems that my Lenovo is not able to power on with only the AC power cord. I took out the battery and used only the AC Power cord and it will not turn on.
Next, I put back the battery back, along with the AC power cord and it booted, but shuts off right after the "ThinkPad" logo comes on. Now it is charging but the LCD light for the battery is blinking orange.
After about 10 mins of charging, I still can not turn on the Lenovo. Is this due to a bad AC adapter?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome to Lenovo Community!
I cannot confirm it is a issue with AC adapter, you can also check with performing power drain.
To perform power drain you have to remov the AC power adapter & battery after that hold the power button for 30 seconds perform this step for 2 or more times.
Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

Thank you for the reply!
As you have mentioned that you are installing it on new hard drive, can you check with removing the HDD and boot the system into BIOS mode and confirm if the issue still persists.
Hope this helps!
