Went to turn on my Lenovo Ideapad Y410p laptop and nothing happened! No led lights with power source on and battery in. When I used it two days ago, I ran AVG and spy-bot and everything was fine. Used it a little bit and turned it off. Now nothing??? Did the power/battery disconnect with holding power button for 30 seconds... nothing. Both batteries 9 cell and 6 cell had full charge, tried my other Lenovo charger... no go. A surge couldn't have happened as the laptop is plugged into same strip as my other lenovo laptop is and that one is working fine.

A:Lenovo Ideapad Y410p won't power on... No power light?

Hi jack61 , 
 
 
Greetings. 
 
We now know, power drain failed. No LED error codes , No beep codes
No activity lights even with battery charging led.
Not turning on even with known good charged batteries. 
No power even with known good ac adapter.
 
What we can try:
Try plugging it directly on the wall and press novo key (number 1 page 7) to turn it on instead. 
Check if the power port shows any signs of burnt / damage / looseness . 
Press Novo key using a charged battery. 
Remove battery, harddrive , memory and other accessories and plug directly with a known working adapter and or with a charged battery ( it should at least beep). 
 
If all fails , you can have it checked for the motherboard issue with a technician (checking on the internals /cleaning or reseating parts connected to the board / applying thermal paste (for processor isolation) / checking on dc in board and port).
 
You can check for your warranty here and call in tech support for service. 
 
 
Regards

Can anyone tell me what's going on with my monitor?
I have an HP Pavilion M70 monitor.
My power light keeps flashing and there's a clicking
sound (sounds like a relay clicking). Pressing the power
button or any other button does nothing.
HELP!!!
 

A:Power light on HP Pavilion M70 keeps flashing

Sounds like a power supply shutdown. It happens when there is a major component failure which causes the power supply to keep resetting and trying again (the "clicking" you hear)

Needs servicing or scrapping.
Monitors are usually not often worth fixing these days, unless it is very minor (and that does not sound minor)

I bought my XPS8900 a couple weeks ago, and immediately upgraded the memory to 32GB.
Everything worked fine, but I then decided to upgrade the video card to an EVGA GeForce GTX970 SSC.
This card requires both a 6 and an 8 pin power connector which the stock Dell PSU doesn't provide. So rather than return the video card, I upgraded the PSU to a Corsair CX750M, which I've read other XPS8900 users have had success with in this machine.
As others have reported, this PSU is a tight fit, but I was able to get it installed. As soon as I powered it on, my problems began.
The case and CPU fans spin, I can hear the HDD spinning up, and I can open and close the dvd tray. So I know the PSU is at least providing some power. But I get no video, and the power indicator on the top of the case flashes an amber pattern.
I've tried reverting back to the stock dell PSU and video card, but still have the exact same issue. 
I've also tried unplugging the power cable and holding the power button for 30 sec. But still, the power light flashes the amber pattern.
I know there are no beep codes for the XPS 8900, and that the power light's amber flash pattern is used instead to diagnose the issue, but I haven't been able to locate any reference to what the patterns indicate.
The power indicator flashes a 2 - 7 pattern, and repeats.
Does anyone know what this means?

A:XPS 8900 Flashing Power Light

Followup:
I had ripped everything out with no luck. Well, everything except the upgraded memory. It had been working, so I didn't think it would be necessary to remove it. But I was wrong.
I reverted back to the stock memory and the blinking amber light problem went away!
Then I re-installed the new memory, and it also worked!
So I guess it was just that the memory needed to be re-seated.
Not sure if the 2 - 7 pattern means "Memory issue", but that would be my guess.
Since the XPS 8900 doesn't support beep codes, I hope Dell will eventually publish what the flashing light patterns mean.

Hi
My PC wouldn't turn on on Monday night - just a green flashing light on the front. After a bid of fiddling with the kettle lead etc and moving the pc, it worked. After switching off as usual the same thing happened the next night. I replaced the kettle lead but now it just sits with the green light flashing. I've checked the forums but can't find someone with the same problem in that the pc DOES work every now and again. PC about 15 months old. Has anyone any suggestions (hoping its not the hard drive).

When did you install 8.1? The reports show that your OS was installed a month before it was released.

No further info in the reports, and the last BSOD was from Nov 2013.
Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."

Hi,

I have just been handed a computer from my next door neighbour, it seems to be a home build (or a computer shop build) so im unsure of the exact specs as it is not booting, they are telling me that until yesterday it was working fine... but now it will not start..

All I can tell from opening it up is that it is XP, has an Eagle power supply, a winfast motherboard and 512mb of Dan electric Ram..

when you switch the system on all the fans start and the hard drive spins up, but then there is one beep and the green power led on the front of the case goes from constant green to flashing green and nothing else happens..

I have removed and checked the HD wich is fine, I have reseated the RAM and even changed it from DIMM 1 to DIMM 2, but none of this makes any difference..

Could it be a power supply fault or a Motherboard fault?? or even a graphics card fault?? how can I find out which it is??

I have asked my neighbours if they still have the user manuals but they claim they threw them out when they moved in about 3 years ago...

Can anyone help??

Many Thanks
Geoff

Hi,

I bought a computer from quantex, the company that went out of business, and after disconnecting my computer and moving to a new apartment - I found that when I reconnected my computer - my computer didn't work.

The monitor acted as if it wasn't attached to the computer, and the computer didn't "tick" like it usually does when loading windows. The only thing I got was a flashing "power light". The "database write" light was also on, but it was constant"

I think its a loose connection inside the tower.

How is the best way to fix it.

RELEVANCY SCORE 88.8

I can't get my computer to boot at all, not into CMOS, not anything. It doesn't power up. And the green LED light that comes with the power supply is constantly flashing.

This has happened before, normally when I wait a while before trying to boot, I can get the fan inside the power supply to spin just a little bit. The last time it happened, I fixed it by taking out one of the memory sticks.

I have no other power supply to test, so I don't know whether it's a problem with the motherboard, or the power supply. However, I notice that when the 24-count connector pin isn't connected to the motherboard, the light doesn't flash, it just stays lit green. When I plug it in, it starts flashing again. Maybe it's the motherboard, maybe the pins are bad, I'm not sure what that suggests.

Is there anything I can do to diagnose this clearer?

My brother owns a Dell Desktop computer and suddenly it stopped working.

- The Power button light is flashing continuously.
- The green light on the motherboard is perfectly on.
- The port light where the telephone wire goes and the usb port next to it on the motherboard is blinking continuously.
- The processor is not starting.
- If I remove the power cord, the lights mentioned above and same for 15 seconds.



What must be the possible problem.


MAny Thanks in advance

A:Dell PC not starting: amber flashing power light

You would be dazed again, because this is probably caused by a failing power supply. The blinking power button is a good clue. The green LED on the motherboard simply means that you have a power cord plugged in... It could be a bad motherboard too, but power supplies are easier to replace and cheaper to start with

amber usually means sleep mode. flashing can mean different things. Disconnect the video cable, turn it off, pull the power plug, wait 10 seconds, plug it in and turn it on. Press the OSD buttons to see if you can bring up the on screen display. If that comes, up try connecting it again. Hopefully the PC is not sending out a bad video signal.

My sister-in-law has an eMachine that she turned off and unplugged before leaving for vacation. A week later she returned and plugged it back in only to find it won't turn on. I don't know much about this pc other than it's a tower and about 3 or so years old. I figured it was probably the PSU (power supply) but wanted to verify as many things as possible. Basically, there is a green light on the back of the pc (on the PSU) that will flashes on and off when you try to turn on the computer. The PSU fan doesn't spin and nothing else makes any attempt to turn...just dead.

I pulled all the power connectors and jumpered the power switch pins (15-16), this gave me a solid green light on the PSU and the fan spun normally. I tested with a voltmeter and got the proper voltage on all the pins. I am thinking that this probably rules out the PSU but not 100% as something could be 'pulling it down'???

Any ideas on what else to look at? I hate to buy a PSU when it appears this one is ok. That pretty much leaves the MoBo and/or CPU. I've pulled all the cards and memory trying to get it to do anything and nothing affects it. I suspect there is something wrong with the MoBo but don't know how to verify that.

Any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks!

I have a LeNovo IdeaPad 100-15IBD, Model Name 80QQ, purchased Feb 2015. When I try to power it up, the power light comes on and the battery light comes on, but there's no fan and the screen is black. If I press and hold the power button for 10 seconds (with the lights on) the lights go off again, which I presume is doing a hard power down. I have tried removing the AC power and the battery (which involves taking the keyboard off first!), leaving it an hour, pressing and holding the power button several times for 20 seconds each, then plugging the battery and AC back in and powering up - but the symptoms are unchanged - power light, battery light, no fan, black screen. I have tried the "One Key Recovery" procedure using the Novo key - this produces the same symptoms as a normal power up - power light and battery light come on, but no screen and no fan. Any suggestions? I'm still in warranty so worst case I can send it off to get it fixed, but I'd rather find a way to fix it myself and not have to send it away.

I have a problem with flashing screen on the power supply in Lenovo G50-30. Everything happens only when the battery level falls below 100% and connected power supply. This problem does not occur when working on the battery itself or when the battery is 100% charged.This flashing is not very clear but on a white background the screen brightness is slightly flickering.

Hi Lenovo4g510i5,
 
Welcome to the Forums  
 
As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with power in your Lenovo G510 laptop.
 
Perform the power drain, to perform please disconnect all the external devices connected to the system shut down the machine and remove battery and adapter. Now press and hold the power button for 20 seconds. Now connect the battery and turn on the system and check for the issue.
 
This is to drain the static charge as the LED might be due to the static charge.
 
Best regards,         
 
Ashwin. S

Hi, there is a small LED light on power button itself (keyboard) on this laptop which is always on when computer is running. It's really distracting when watching movies at night. The light on power button is the same like CapsLock or NumLock lights which you can turn off easily. Is there any way to temporary turn off power button light?
