Lenovo Laptop Shut Down?

I have a Lenovo Laptop (Flex 3-1580) that I’ve treated carefully for all that I’ve had it. Suddenly, it completely shut down, and won’t turn back on. The power was about halfway full and was charging. The power light won’t turn on either, and I’ve tried holding the power button on for 30 seconds, and trying different outlets. Any advice?

    1.First thing to do is a hard reboot. Remove the battery and unplug the AC adapter. Then, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds. After that, try booting it up again with the battery and charger.

    2.Next test to try would be to remove the battery again and connect just the AC adapter. Then, see if it will boot up or not.

    3.If the laptop will still not boot up with just the AC adapter connected, do try a different AC adapter that has the same voltage.

    4.Do also reseat the RAMs. Remove them all for a couple of seconds then put them back in, making sure everything is seated properly.

    5.Lastly, do also try connecting an external monitor and see if you get any display from it.

    6.If all of these steps don't work, the problem might be the motherboard.
