I have a Lenovo Thinkpad X201, with an SSD, and windows 10.

The laptop has been working fine until this morning.  All of a sudden, it just turned off.

When trying to turn it back on, nothing happens. When you press the power button, the power plug button just flashes.  When the laptop is plugged into the power receptacle, the batter icon flashes as well.  I removed the battery and plugged in the laptop, still doesn't boot. 

I think it's a power supply issue as it doesn't do anything.

Any idea's what I can try to resolve this issue?
