Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Is the screen is very faint?
It is black - it is as if I have not turned on the computer
Try to look in the dark, can you see anything or is it pitch black?
What is model of lenovo?
Model name: 2958
Does any light turn ON? Do you hear any beeps?
no beeps - at the bottom of the keyboard, there are 3 small lights that are on - the first 3 and the last light is flickering
Also, there are 2 houses at the top of the keyboard - the 2nd one (with a "1") in the house - has a light in it
Try hard reset as follows:
Remove the power cord, remove the battery.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds and release.
Now connect power cord only and try to turn it ON.
Let me know what happens.
it is working - it says "start windows normally - do I press that?
never mind - windows is starting
can I put the battery back in?
Turn off the computer and then put the battery back in.
Then restart computer and check.
It is working - thanks
How do I prevent this problem in the future? What happened? ? ?
This is a minor problem in which the static charges accumulate inside the computer such that they prevent the normal startup.
If happens in future, just repeat the process.
