Introduction

Given that your MSI GP62MVR 6RF Leopard Pro is charged, the most attributable reason for your laptop failing to turn on is some motherboard component failure. Unless you can pinpoint the exact place of malfunction, an entire replacement of the motherboard will most likely be the solution to a total failure of your MSI GP62MVR 6RF Leopard Pro. This process is not as hard as it may seem. No special skills are required. You will need a Philips #0 screwdriver, a jimmy tool, a prying tool, and a pair of latex gloves. Although the latex gloves are not required, we recommend them to avert the hazard of electrical shock or the leaving of residue on sensitive electrical components on the motherboard.
