I daily drive my Framework 13 (13th Gen Intel) for work. After shutting it down last night, I brought it into the office and it won’t power on. I noticed the power button light wasn’t coming on, which led me to see the the lights under the keyboard were on. From there, I held down the power button until those went off and still had no luck booting the machine.
I found this recent post and reset the Touch Pad cable, but still don’t have any luck. While I had the cover off, I hit the power button and there was a red light blinking about three times up on the top left side of the computer by the QR Code about joining the Frame.work team (I have a video but can’t post it here).
Any thoughts/ideas? I have an 11th Gen and have faced the CMOS Battery issue before, but it looks like that’s been removed in the 13th Gen.
- Framework 13 (13th Gen Intel)
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
With my power cable plugged in, if I hit the power button a white indicator light comes on and stays lit. This only works with the USB-C port on the left side of my computer, the port on the right side of my computer doesn’t light up performing the same action.
I unplugged the battery and plugged it back in, which when plugged in results in the same red light flashing three times.
I was able to go buy an SSD M.2 NVMe enclosure and grab all my work files off and get running on a spare machine really quickly. In case anyone needs to get up and going quick.
