I've got a Lenovo Thinkpad that will not start. Power seems ok as the light comes on.
Computer will not start, no display or keyboard lights except Fn key which seems stuck. Tried all the suggestions with powerbutton, memory re-seat, battery but same results again and again--Fn LED light on and red ThinkPad LED light on.
Would appreciate any other suggestions.

Hello konaga,

When you plug the charger into the jack, can you hear a noise comming out from the fan or the hard drive?
If you can't and the warranty of your laptop has expired I suggest you to take out the hard drive and try to connect it to another computer through SATA-USB cable. If the HDD doesn't spin at all, anywhere, then it has failed mechanically and needs replacement.
If your hard drive spins up on a different computer and it is recognized there, but cannot power up on your laptop, then the problem is hiding probably in the power supply unit on your motherboard. You could bring your laptop to a technician to make a test of the power connector and/or the power jack center because they might have got damaged.

Good luck. Cheers.
