It appears dead. I can't turn it on . Nothing happens. The power button on the side is blinking. Before I knew there was a problem I connected a USB hard drive to it. That seems to have power. Any help greatly appreciated. I am LOST!!!!

Technician's Assistant: Does the hard drive icon appear on your desktop?

It's Yoga so the screen doesn't even come on

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried accessing the drive on a different computer?

Yes, that drive shows up just fine. But the issue is not with the external hard drive. The laptop does not turn on or become active in any way

On your Yoga. Press and Hold the power Key till it turns off. Disconnect the power cable and any external drives connected to it. Remove the battery if you can. Leave the computer idle for 15 minutes and then connect the power cable and turn on your Lenovo.

Do ask me as many questions as you like. Iwill be happy to assist.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
