does not turn on the laptop,

I bought a 800 MHz logic board iFixit and followed all the procedures that appear on the site iFixit. The laptop worked fine for a week and, suddenly went dead while I was working on it and I could not connect again. Now, after 2 weeks I tried to turn on and it ran for about 10 minutes and hung up again and I no longer turn on.

I'm thinking it's not the logic board, but something with the boton on / off? Could it be?

Maybe a bad contact? What should I do to see what is happening?

thanks for help

It could possibly be a bad DC-in.

Also, your mention of the "bottom on/off" made me think of something -- sometimes if the bottom shielding is bent up in such a way that it touches certain pars of the underside of the board when it is attached, it can short the board out and cause behavior similar to what you are describing. If it is bent up, I'd see if you can flatten it out, and hopefully that will make a difference. Also, loose screws will randomly short a board out, so try shaking the machine gently, and if you hear screws rolling around, take them out, because that will cause the problem you're describing.

Your best bet would be to call 1.866.613.4948 and talk to them directly as it sounds like the part may have need of a replacement. These things happen and that is why they warrantee their parts.
