Question about IBM Lenovo ThinkCentre M55e PC Desktop
My above described computer, which is 6 months old and only used in the evenings for watching videos or listening to podcasts, died one day when I was at work. I do not turn it off (I let it go to sleep) but it was completely unresponsive when I tried to boot up; no fan (this is why a similar answer does not work): I tried power source and checked the gadgets attached to the computer. All are getting power. I'm down to thinking motherboard, but I have never seen this before and would like to know why in addition to what is wrong.
First you should have a 3 year warranty from Lenovo. 1st year onsite the other 2 years depot repair. I have had one with a power supply problem. (no fan running). The other was a complete motherboard, cpu and memory swap out. Call Lenovo tech support and get a tech out there for free. Let me know if I can help.

This could still possibly be a bad power supply, even if the fans and drives spin up. If you have a spare try hooking it up.
the list of things that can cause this are:
bad power supply
IDE error (optical or hard drive problem)
bad card (modem, video card etc.)
The first thing i would look for in this case is blown capacitors. Those are the little things on the board that look like little soup cans, usually with silver tops. If the tops of any of them are bulging or have junk leaking out of them, you have a bad board. If you are handy with a soldering iron you can try to replace them. Not sure if radio shack still sells caps, but they are easy to find on line. I have about an %80 success rate fixing boards in this way.
If the PS change doesn't work, then try it with different sticks of RAM, if you have more than one, pulling one at a time until it starts or you've tried it with all the ram. If not ram, disconnect the ide cables from the board, these are the wide ones usually connected to the HD's and optical drives. If it still doesnt start then pull all the cards. If it doesnt start then, try swapping processor and if still no joy a new board.

IF your systems turns on no beeps ...everything seems to work just no display on the screen then i guess would should try discharging your system - ie un plug the power cord take out the Motherboard ,ram , basically take everything apart leave it for a day and connect everything back again ti should work
