I put my 11th gen DIY framework laptop to sleep while plugged in yesterday and I haven’t been able to get it to turn on again.
Yesterday when I pressed the power button it would turn red, then flash off and on red again. The LEDs on the side didn’t really make a pattern, but they appeared to be turning on briefly (white?) when I pressed the power button.
After draining the battery overnight, the power button and side LEDs don’t light up at all even when plugged in.
Based on some troubleshooting advice I saw in other threads on this forum I tried:
- Booting from an external USB stick (I couldn’t get to the boot menu)
- Holding down the power button for 15 seconds in case it was caught in sleep (no change after several attempts)
- Letting the battery charge in case it was out of power
- Letting the battery drain overnight because I was out of ideas
I haven’t installed any new components recently, the laptop tends to stay plugged in at my desk most of the time.
Edit: I’ll get in touch with framework support too, but I’m asking here because I use an unsupported linux. Last time I tried to ask a hardware question I didn’t get far with support. If anyone has ideas for how to troubleshoot this I would appreciate the help! Thanks!
