Question about Lenovo IdeaPad S10-42312CU Notebook
Hi, everybody. I have a Lenovo Ideapad S10 but it's fan was not working when I pressing the Power button. This problem also cause my laptop can't to be run when I press the Power button and nothing happen or display on the laptop screen. I was no idea and don't know how to fix this problem. I hope somebody can help me.
You did not say whether the laptop boots up or is dead.
Check the following:
1. Defective Battery will cause laptops to not power up
2. Defective AC power adapter
3. Try vacuuming the open grills on the laptop to suck out any debris clogging the fan
These are about the only things you can check as a consumer without opening the device and troubleshooting at the board level.
If none of these work then the laptop needs to see a MBD (mainboard doctor)

The next tim eit is turned on, try shiniing a bright flashlight directly on the screen.
If you can see anything there then the backlight has burned out on the screen, and will need to be replaced.
If you cant see anything, try hooking up an external monitor to the laptop, if you have a desktop the monitor for it will work for the test..
If the external monitor you hook up will work, then you will have to replace the screen..
( or at a minimum the inverter board, or check that the cables are tight that go to the screen)

if your sure the screen is not the problem then unfortunatly your looking at a motherboard issue and this proves sort of costly sometimes i know its a real pain but you can have someone repair it for you or simply buy another motherboard and have it installed im sorry but that is all you can do at this point! i hope this helps!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the help."
i have the same problem, but was able to solve it by taking out the battery and use the ac adapter only. i think s10-2 has some kind of sleep/wake up problem thats related to the battery.

Welcome to Fixya
THis means that the bootmanager is corrupted. You can still use the computer by pressing the One key recovery button. Look for the button located beside the power button that has a U-turn sign icon. Press that button once whn the computer is turned off. This will restore the computer back to factory defaults. Please take not that this will delete all files and data inside the computer.
Thank you for using Fixya!
