    I have a Lenovo yoga 12 thinkpad laptop that won't turn on. I press the power button and the only thing that happens is the I blinks red. The keyboard doesn't light up and the screen is black. I have tried taking the battery out and draining power. I have tried turning it on while it is on the charger without the battery. Nothing is working.

    Does it show the charging LED when it is plugged in? Sounds like it's not posting, I would retry the battery/power removal and hold down the power button for 30 secs while out and then put it together and try again. My guess is it will do the same thing. It's likely something more serious, Maybe even RAM, CPU or motherboard failure.
