My Lenovo G780 Laptop running Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) Service Pack 1 and has had an issue starting up for a month or two now. I thought possibly hardware as a first option to check the battery, and cleaning the battery or resetting it on the backside of my laptop. I also checked the charger and completely discharged/drained any power to the battery. Lastly, I cleaned the inside of the laptop with any remaining dust near the internal fan, CPU, video card, SSD, and secondary drive that was also part of the original setup when purchased.

I cannot seem to even boot the laptop into the BIOS to see if I could reinstall the OS or try anything else to get my laptop running again. After approximately 2 seconds, the laptop shuts down automatically. I have read in various blogs that my laptop could be "bricked" or some possible hardware issue that I have not noticed.

Any help or suggestions are welcomed. Thank you very much!

I tried booting the laptop with just the charger itself and the battery removed, but the same issue occurs again and again. The laptop powers down after a few seconds without any chance of reaching the BIOS or troubleshooting within Windows, etc. Thank you for your advice, and I am going to try to contact Lenovo Tech Support to see if there is any answers to my issue.

Best Regards,
