3 days before I fully charged my laptop before going to bed and that time the power button is having issues already like you have to press it more than 1 min. to on. After that, I haven't used my laptop. When I try to open it the power button just doesn't work I tried pressing it multiple times (long press and seconds press) but nothing happens. Their is light when I tried to charge it but the screen won't turn on neither the power button. Help. My parents will kill

  • Is the power adapter cable plugged into the laptop? If so, make sure the adapter is plugged into an outlet and that outlet has power.
    • If this solves your problem, your battery may either be faulty or not charged. Try letting your battery recharge for a few hours then power down the machine. Unplug the laptop from the power adapter and turn on the machine. If it doesn’t turn on, then your battery will need to be replaced.
    • If this doesn’t solve your problem then you may have a faulty power adapter. While plugged into an outlet, is there a light on the adapter?
      • If there is, the cord to the adapter may be faulty and needs to be replaced.
        • If not, then the adapter may be faulty and needs to be replaced.

Tried all these obvious things first. They weren't the problem. Also tried less obvious ones and no success. Now waiting for repair shop to phone about progress made a day and a half later.

Worked for me too. I had to press it several times though. I pressed them in order, Control, Alt, then the delete button.

Hi @Freya Reneigh Luison,

You may have a faulty Power button.

Try disconnecting the power button board cable from the systemboard and then test the button when it is being held operated for continuity by using an Ohmmeter connected to the appropriate cable end connections and pressing the button.

Here’s a link to the maintenance and service guide for the laptop.

Scroll to p.93 to view the necessary pre-requisite steps to remove/replace the function board/power button board.

If the button is faulty the part number for the board and cable is 683486-001.

Search online using the part number only to find suppliers of the part. Here’s a link to just one supplier. It is only to show you what the part looks like and how much it may cost. There are other suppliers online that may suit you better.
