I have a Lenovo ideapad S145-15IGM (type 81MX) laptop not POSTING with the following indications/symptoms:
The LED next to the charging port is ALWAYS functioning normally: orange while charging and white when fully charged.
if I do not turn on/did not turn on the PC: TNum Lock light ALWAYS lights up when connected to AC power and remains solid white as long as AC power is connected.
if I don’t/didn’t turn on the PC: The Num Lock light ALWAYS goes off when I turn off the AC power
When I turn on the PC with AC power connected (and Num Lock on and solid white): The power button light and the light next to the USB port come on and stay on and stay on white, but the monitor remains off and the hard drive does not spin. When I press the power button for at least ten seconds, the light on the power button and the light next to the USB port go out.
When I turn on the PC (without AC power): The power button LED, Num Lock LED, and the LED next to the USB port come on and stays on and white, but the monitor stays off and the drive hard does not work. Twirl up. When I press the power button for at least ten seconds, the light on the power button, the Num Lock light, and the light next to the USB port go out.
Nothing ever appears on the monitor and the hard drive never spins up no matter how long I keep the PC on.
I have disconnected AC power, internal battery, CMOS battery multiple times and for different durations. I reinstalled the RAM. I have tried to perform BIOS recovery using USB flash drive and Fn+R key method. I have successfully performed BIOS recovery on different brands of bricked laptops and I know the process. The aforementioned indications/symptoms haven’t changed after everything I’ve tried so far.
Any ideas/steps/suggestions/information relevant to the indications/symptoms I’ve described that might help me get this PC working again would be much appreciated!
