Today i serviced a Lenovo 500s laptop that wasnt turning on or charging. I first test charger using on another computer and it was charging fine. Performed battery reset by removing battery and charger for then pushing and holding power for about 30 seconds to 1 minute. then connected charger only then tried to power on, but still no response. Next checked to be sure that charger was making proper connection to DC Jack and it was tight fit.

At this point laptop needs to be disassembled to test power to main board. (Board will be replaced)

First start by removing charger and battery to prevent shorting or shock.

Next remove 3 screws at bottom that hold back cover on. Lenovo 500s 6Next remove Hard Drive by removing 2 screws, then slide out of dock.Lenovo 500s 7After removing all screws (including the 2  holding the fan) turn laptop over then remove keyboard.  Lenovo 500s 9To remove keyboard, use thin pry tool (at the top) and slowly releasing section of keyboard from left to right and remove ribbon. Lenovo 500s 10Remove all connectors then with pry tool separate palm rest from bottom casing.  Lenovo 500s 11Next remove all connectors once again then screws from board, then remove.
