Acer Predator 15, Booting/Power issues

edited February 2018 in Predator Laptops
My laptop froze, so I pressed the power button to shut it down. Now, the screen is black and the power button and track pad disabling button are the only buttons on and I cannot turn off nor on my laptop. Left it alone for 8+ hours hopefully the battery will die and I can start it up again, but the power button and track disabling button are still on, so I'm assuming it's still on. Help me, please and thank you.

    If your computer will not power on or your battery is behaving abnormally, try resetting the battery using the pinhole reset button. This process will temporarily disconnect and then reconnect the internal battery. 

    Unplug AC power adapter.

    Locate the battery reset pinhole on the bottom of the computer.

    Insert a small paperclip in the battery reset pinhole. Hold the reset button for 4 seconds.

    Let the computer sit for 5 minutes with no power.

    Connect the AC adapter and power on the system

    Same happened to my i7 8th gen. I was worried a lot but then a friend came and reset the battery by pushing a pin inside the battery reset slot. We waited for a minute and then switched it on and voila it worked

    when i start my laptop it boot up os , after reaching desktop i observed(in tray), when nvidia graphic driver(1060 6GB) starts up laptop shutting down immediately. so every time i have to press that battery reset button and plugin power to start and stay on after a shutdown. at first i thought my laptop back panel is not sitting properly in its position (to press button inside usually besides ram or ssd) so inserted a paper, then it worked for few days. but later started shutting down on startup again then i read about nvidia power options to set optimal or adaptive and did that too. nothing is working. need help!
