I think i have a big problem.

My Lenovo G50-80 suddenly shutdown. It was connected with the charger and the battery was in good condition. The laptop doesn't have the warranty.

I tried removing the battery multiple times with no luck, pressed and hold the power key for 30 seconds.

Even when i connect the charger the charging LED indicators are not lighting at all.

Has any one faced something like that and what are the possibilities for the problem... I just need the hard drive to be ok because i haven't done a backup for a while now.

    Good news is, there is very little chance the hard drive has failed. Bad news is, it could be your motherboard. Best news would be that it is just the power adapter. Have you tried a different power adapter? Were you using the computer when it shut down? Did you notice it say the battery wasn't charging or anything? – Appleoddity Dec 18 '18 at 6:10

    Measure if your power supply gives voltage. Try another charger. – davidbaumann Dec 18 '18 at 7:12

    Assuming its a power issue, its possible your hard drive is still fine. Probably worth sticking it in an enclosure to check – Journeyman Geek Dec 18 '18 at 8:30

    Try leaving it plugged in for a few hours. Maybe the laptop was left on and fully discharged. Often laptops need to be left plugged in to gain enough charge to restart - especially if the power brick is starting to die. – davidgo Dec 18 '18 at 9:50
