Why is My Lenovo Laptop Not Turning On?

If your Lenovo laptop won’t switch on, don’t be concerned; you’re not alone in this situation. This is a typical issue that many people have with their computers, and it is easy to fix. The next blog article will lead you through some of the most frequent reasons why your laptop may be unable to boot up or start up properly. We will also demonstrate how to resolve the issue on your own, allowing you to resume normal laptop use as soon as possible!

Lenovo Laptop Does Not Turn On – 10 Step Process To Resolve

What happens if the Lenovo laptop runs out of battery? That is the first and most important thing to understand.

Your laptop is not only not turning on, but it is also not getting any electricity.
We’ll conduct a troubleshooting session to determine if the problem is with the laptop, the display screen, or the A/C adapter or battery.
For the sake of resolving power-on difficulties, I’ve broken down the checks into distinct procedures to follow.

1) Lenovo Laptop No Status Lights?

Inspect to determine whether the power status indicator lights are illuminated and in working order.

  • Connect the A/C adapter and check for a power status indicator light to indicate that the unit is operational. It may be located on the bottom portion of the display screen or at the place where the A/C adapter is plugged in.
  • Check to see that your power outlet is functioning correctly and is not the source of the problem.
  • If you do see a power status indicator light on the laptop, attempt to turn it on again.

2) Remove The A/C Adapter And Battery

  • If you do not see a status light, unhook the A/C adapter and, if the battery is external, take it out of the computer.
  • Press and hold the power button for about 30 seconds to discharge any static electricity that has accumulated.
  • Connect the A/C adaptor at this point.
  • Check to check whether the laptop comes to life by pressing the power button.

3) Lenovo Power On With Battery Only?

After trying with just the A/C adapter and finding that the Lenovo Laptop does not turn on, it is time to attempt with only the battery. With these stages, we are attempting to pinpoint the source of the problem.

  • Unplug the ac adapter from the wall outlet.
  • Replace the battery in the device.
  • Check to check whether the laptop comes to life by pressing the power button.

4) Press The Lenovo Emergency Reset Button

Some Lenovo laptops are equipped with a CMOS reset button, which may be pressed to restart the computer. This is referred to as the ‘Emergency Reset Hole’ by Lenovo. This disables the system’s ability to draw power from any internal or external battery, effectively resetting the laptop.

  • Turn the laptop over and check for a tiny hole on the rear base plate of the computer.
  • If your Lenovo laptop includes this reset hole, you may use a straight pin to hit the emergency reset button by inserting it into the hole.
  • Make an attempt to turn on your Lenovo laptop.

5) Press The Lenovo NOVO Button

Some Lenovo IdeaPad notebooks are equipped with a NOVO button, which may be used to reset the system and boot into the recovery BIOS. On most laptops, this button is situated near the power button or on the side of the computer. It will be indicated by a curved arrow that seems to be upside down.

  • The NOVO button is a little hole with a reverse arrow next to it that appears like an upside down U in the centre of the hole.
  • Entering the Lenovo recovery mode is made possible by this method.
  • Recovery of the operating system is available via the NOVO menu. Select it and then press the power button to start the laptop.

6) Lenovo Display Screen Blank?

Check to see whether the problem is caused by a faulty display. Sometimes the laptop will power on, but the display will be blank, giving the impression that the laptop is not powered on.

  • Turn on the system and search for indicators that it is operational.
  • Keep an eye out for lights and keep an ear out for fan sounds.
  • You will need to take your laptop in for repairs if it seems that it is receiving electricity but the display is not functioning properly.

7) Lenovo A/C Adapter And Power Port Bad?

It is possible that the A/C power adapter, as well as the plug-in port, is faulty or damaged. Both should be checked.

  • Check for apparent damage to the A/C adapter and cable, and replace them if necessary with a new one.
  • Visually inspect the laptop port where the adapter will be plugged in for indications of damage.
  • Occasionally, the port becomes worn and no longer provides a reliable and secure connection.
    If the port on your laptop is worn out, you should get it serviced.

8) Lenovo Battery Issues?

We removed the battery in the previous stages in order to better isolate the power problem. Let’s have a look at the battery to see whether it’s faulty.

  • A faulty battery might result in power problems and the inability to turn on the laptop entirely.
  • Make a visual inspection of the battery for indications of damage and replace it if necessary.
  • For information unique to your Lenovo Laptop model, refer to the Lenovo Battery Reference Guide (available online).

9) Lenovo Power Button Blinking Or Flashing?

Normally, this flashing indicates that the Lenovo laptop is in sleep or standby mode, in which case you may wake it up by pressing any key on the keyboard.
However, if you find yourself in this circumstance where the power button begins to flicker but the laptop does not turn on, follow the instructions outlined below:

  • To turn the computer off, press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds.
  • Press the ‘Emergency Reset Hole‘ (as demonstrated in step 4) and then turn on the laptop to complete the procedure.
  • If your laptop does not have a reset button, you will need to remove both the external and internal batteries (step 10) and then press the power button for 15 seconds to restore functionality to the system. Now that the batteries have been replaced, turn on the laptop.

10) Remove Lenovo Laptop Internal Components

The hard disc, memory modules, and internal battery should all be removed and reinstalled if the Lenovo laptop is still not turning on. After that, reassemble all of the components and attempt to restart the laptop. Additional information regarding the repair process may be found in my post titled: Laptop Repair Primer (free tutorial).

If you have tried everything and still cannot get the laptop to turn on, it is time to contact Lenovo assistance to get the device serviced and fixed.
