    I have a T60 with the same problem and have tried the method described. It will power on for about 2 sec showing the inital bios screen then shut off. I have tested with and without the battery and plugged into the wall with the exact same out come everytime. Next steps would be to test the power supply? Any help greatly appreciated.

If the laptop appears dead in the water, try a power drain:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board. 3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on. If this doesn't resolve the problem, start troubleshooting the power cable and it's brick first before assuming it's an internal issue in the laptop unless of course, it doesn't start up using the battery either. Maybe remove the battery and just try the power cable. I never rule out one piece of hardware causing a conflict with others if it has failed...

    I forgot to ask, are there any LED's lit up at all on the laptop when it's plugged in? My IBM R50 shows me that I am plugged into the wall before I turn on the PC and shows the power supply is at least working.

The power supply of lenovo h405 is working well because i transfer the power supply into different desktop pc is working but on my lenovo pc nothing is working none of the led is coming on when connec

okay if your PSU is working than have you checked the other hardware? for example check your MEMORY RAM sticks and check if they are properly in if they are out the pc will not start. also!
if the power supply is good than your motherboard should have an LED on it somewere look for it and power it on .. if this LED doesnt turn on than it means it gave out and you need to replace it .. cause of this? maybe a power surge or static or the light went out and came back and it fried it. i hope this helps
