So a couple of weeks ago my Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 suddenly stopped working. Everytime I plugged in the charger, the charging indicator would keep flashing. And if I pressed the power button, the power light would start flashing and there would be a clicking noise as well.

At first I thought it was a problem with the hard drive so I replaced it with a 240 GB SSD, but the issue still presists. I tried removing the battery and holding down the power button, but that didn't work either. I've also tried checking the internet to see if anyone had similar problem, but couldn't really find anything.

Is it a powerjack issue or a motherboard? Or is something else entirely? And how do I fix this issue?

If it does not do the same thing when the battery is removed, that means it works OK without the battery? If it does not work without the battery either, then it's a jack or motherboard issue.

Don't think it's just a jack issue, very likely it's a bad motherboard or power circuitry itself rather than just a power jack.

Does it do the same thing even if the battery is removed and you try to turn it on? Did you try a different charger?

I did try to turn it on with a different charger but nothing changes. And the laptop doesn't do the same thing when the battery is removed
