Hello there, like the title says I'm having a weird issue with a x250.
Here's what's happening: laptop won't boot, period. No lights at all, even plugging the charger does nothing.
I tried the usual (reset switch, which used to work until yesterday), remove the external battery, press the power button 10 times with 1 second interval, then 30s press, then put the adapter back. Nothing.
The only way to revive it is to pop the cover, unplug the internal battery and plug it back. From there, it will power up, as long as I don't put the cover back on. If I do, and start screwing it back into place, it's over. Dead again. If I don't, I can use the laptop normally.
I tried to unplug the internal battery and use only the external, I get the exact same behavior: I can power on as long as the cover is off.
Needless to say, I can't do much with it in that state.
What's going on ? Is the cover shorting something ? Or the pressure causing some internal failures ? Is the motherboard dying ?
Thank you for your help.
