Lenovo 3000 n100 won't power up

My son used my laptop Lenovo 3000 n100 and let the battery run down not in time to shut it down. Now it doesn't power up, not even plugged to the power supply. The only button that lights up is the one with the Z. I don't know if it's the battery although I doubt it. I would like to know what usually is the first thing to go, if the processor or the mother board. What can I do?

    I have the same problem with the C200 -- just replaced charger and battery appears to be charging (the green batt light is on), but it does a half power-on with the little Z light and then off again.

    Same problem. Twice! 1st time was 8 months after purchase. Battery apparently just died and laptop would NOT work on AC power. When plugged in, it starts up until the screen displays the Windows logo, then suddenly dies. Lenovo sent me a new battery, and it ran again. Now, 6 months later, same problem. Only now it's out of warranty and the tech I talked to this time said it might be a problem with the system board. Great, now I have a laptop that won't run on AC and paying for a new battery may not even help. Any insight into how to resolve this is much appreciated!



    Thanks and Cheers

Hello,

I had posted the Aug 19, 2008 comment about having this problem twice. I tried a new universal AC adapter, and it worked! (new adapter is a Targus APA63US) Now battery is charging and laptop also runs on AC alone. So perhaps it's an adapter problem instead of a battery problem. Get one at a store with a good return policy, so if it doesn't work for you, just return it. And if it does work, then happier days. I've had mine about 2 weeks. So far so good, though with what I've learned about Lenovo since having this problem, it wouldn't surprise me if something else goes wrong, or if the damn thing just blew up, ha ha. Also, this adapter set me back about $100 that I really should not have needed to spend! arrgggh ...

Cheers and Best of Luck and hope this helps other frustrated Lenovo owners!

Lenovo n100 is 10 minut after power off.


If you are running on battery power and it powers off, then the battery is not fully charged or the battery is worn out or faulty.
Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and after 2 or more years they will lose its charge capacity until it will not charge at all.
A new battery will solve your problem provided the charging circuit in the laptop is OK.

You say the laptop all of a sudden flashed off.

How old is the laptop? You may have suffered one of two things? First of all, if the hard drive will not boot back up, even after using the recovery discs, then that would explain it powering off. I have seen this happen on old desktop hard drives.

Next, try to get the transformer or adapter tested. It may not be putting out enough amperage to run the laptop.

Hi.. I have a temporary solution to your problem. I had the same problem. Remove the battery and the ac adapter from the laptop. Just reconnect the ac adapter without the battery and switch on the lap. Presto.. Problem solved.. It doesnt power off anymore unless u remove the ac adaptor. Usefull if u hav needed files n want 2 create a backup. Still i havent found out a permanent solution to this problem. I suspect its a motherboard fault

Get a can of compressed air and make sure the dust balls are blown out of the system. I have seen several systems get over heated and when they do the system will shut down.

Battery problem


SreeSatya,

Laptop batteries have a limited lifespan. When they reach the end of that life, this is how they behave. How old is your laptop?

I just replaced my Toshiba after three years. Unfortunately, laptop batteries are not cheap. You can find batteries for your system here:
