    Computer Crashed

    Hi Earlier today there was a power outage in my building. The power came back on quickly and my computer seemed to boot back up fine. Several hours later I was playing a game and suddenly it crashed. The screen was flashing different colors then went black. I tried rebooting and it fails each time.My computer model is lenovo Y700-151SK, I have checked some lenovo Y700-151SK manual but can't figure out the problem.
    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like something got fried when you had that Brownout.

    Something may have happened to your computer, which the Brownout just happened to push it to happen sooner.

    Lenovo... Ha..

    I got one too and just remember, Chinese components... But this time it should be Chinese cause Lenovo is a Chinese company! For once, Chinese parts but finally a Chinese company!!

    You'll notice on the English support forum of Lenovo, filled with disasters such as screens breaking, components not working, cheap plastic parts and hinges holding the screens breaking! Hard drives failing and fans making clicking noises..

    Do you hear beeps or anything at all sound wise? Does the fan try to start?

    Or are you completely dead? No start at all and no noise or flash..
