Providing proper connection
Before connecting the AC adapter to your Lenovo IdeaPad, ensure that there is no physical damage like frayed wiring or cracked housing within your AC adapter that might lead your system to shut down. The AC adapter also might not work due to improper cable connection or due to any problem with system power socket. So, try to plug the adapter connector directly into the Lenovo IdeaPad through extension cords and also ensure that adapter connector fits tightly into the computer's power socket.
Solving compatibility problem
AC adapters might not be interchangeable. Therefore, different notebook series models might require different AC adapters. You might need the product number of your Lenovo IdeaPad to replace your adapter if some defect is found. You might find the product name, product number, and serial number of the Ideapad by clicking 'Start' then selecting 'Help & Support.' This would be displayed in the upper left hand corner of the home page. By getting those details, you might easily replace your defective AC adapter.
Sometimes your AC adapter brick might not receive any power. To check that, first of all shut down your Lenovo IdeaPad and unplug the adapter from the system. Also unplug from the power socket. After that plug the adapter directly into the wall socket, by passing surge protectors or extension cords. The adapter LED might produce steady green light. If it does not give a green light, try the adapter in another wall outlet in another room. Then also if your problem doesn’t solve, then replace the AC adapter.
