Thinkpad T440s won't power on

Has anyone experienced issues with a thinkpad 440s not powering on at all after a full charge, with and without the battery?  My T440s was working fine two days ago and now won't even power on.


Here's what I've tried:


- with and without the battery

- original charger that works

- different charge that works (from a different laptop)


Any suggestions?


I don't mean to vent here but I called technical support and they simply said "give us $650 and maybe we'll fix it". Seeing how this is my company's first Lenovo laptop (we were all Dell equipment), this will be our last with how I was treated so far.  A company as big as Lenovo should do a better on their customer service.  They should be ashamed of how they brush their customers aside.

Hi jeremyf10,


Welcome to Lenovo Forums!


Can you please try few more troubleshooting steps as given below:

Remove the battery and AC adapter

Remove the hard drive and wlan/wwcan cards

Remove both RAM modules

Re attach the AC adapter and boot

If you don't hear a series of loud beeps it probably means a hardware issue.


Please let me know whether the above steps helped you to assist you further.

Thank you, have a good day.
