x230i tablet won't turn on

2014-06-01, 21:47 PM

I have an x230i tablet (3437CTO) that was charging overnight.  In the morning, it was off, no lights anywhere, and it won't turn on.  The battery was working just fine prior to this, and the charger still works with other machines.  Is it dead, or is there any way to recover?  Appreciate any suggestions, thanks!

First, unplug it and remove the main battery. Press the power button 5 times, holding it for a full 5 seconds on the last time. Put the battery back, plug it in, and try again

Thanks for the suggestion.  Did some further looking, and the motherboard appears to be fried.
