Lenovo Thinkpad won't turn on [Solved/Closed]


I have a lenovo thinkpad and hoping someone can help ... My PC was on sleep and there was not power cable plugged in, the thinkpad red light was on last night and today I realised the power must be dead as it wouldnt turn on. I have plugged in the power cable but its still not turning on. Any tips?

Your help is much appreciated

Thank you
  • Unplug the power cord
  • Remove the battery
  • Remove the RAM from the slot
  • Hold the power button for 60 seconds
  • Place the RAM back into the slot
  • Connect the power supply then try to switch ON the laptop and later put the battery back into the laptop.

Good Luck
