Battery won't charge, won't boot
Hi, I’ve had intermittent probs with my Lenovo 3 not charging and not starting. I tried new power cords, remove battery with 20 sec power button push all of which worked for a time but now it won’t charge AND won’t turn on when plugged in.
I have taken it to a couple of PC stores telling them what I have done and if they could check the motherboard power connection - the part that the power cord fits into. Both times, for a charge of $50 each time, they have told me that they tested the power cord, it’s fine (DUHHHH, I bought a new one and tested it!!!) and that it was probably my MOBO. NEITHER of them gave me any information about the power connector part GRHHH :=} When I plug the power adapter in it does appear a bit loose but I’m pretty sure that’s par for the course on this type of adapter?
I was wondering/hoping that someone here MAY have tried replacing this part to see if it was the culprit OR is there an article here on how to check my mobo?
Thanks for any assistance you can give me
Is this a good question?
