Hi, I just had the same problem. I don't use this laptop very often so it sits for weeks without being turned on, but it's always plugged in. From time to time it does not power on. I did the power plus windows button combination with no success. Then, I did the volume down plus power button for 15 seconds followed by the power button plus the windows button and for some reason, it started up. Maybe worth a try....
