T430 fails to read hard drive or hangs up on startup when the battery is installed.
Typically will start on AC without the battery installed, but still hangs up intermittently
Was working fine until after multiple rapid power outages during a storm.
Any ideas? OS is Windows 10
Thanks in advance!

You might have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard. If that is the case, the only solution is to replace the board. There is an array of power transistors that handles the switching back and forth between AC and battery.

I replaced the mother board and the same problem is still there. Looks like I might have a problem with the solid state hard drive. Any fix for that or am I toast?
