My Predator 17 n15p4 won’t turn on

Legend27Legend27 Posts: 10Member New User
How it started: I was playing FIFA and all of a sudden, the screen froze and I couldn’t do anything to solve it so I had to force shut down my laptop. After it had closed, it was impossible to turn it back on and it won’t charge anymore. I have tried the “holding the power button for 30 seconds” but it doesn’t seem to work. I have taken out my battery and put it back in again too. Is there any other method to solve this? Or this is the end of my laptop...

    Unplug the battery connector from the mainboard. Put the covers back on. Plug the charger in. Try to turn it on without the battery. Jack E/NJ

    Thank you. I’ve tried it but it still doesn’t work :( My laptop is completely dead right now

    Check the mainboard for SW2 as shown below. This is a spring-loaded normally OFF safety switch that cuts all power to the mainboard when the cover is removed. The switch itself may be defective or the bottom cover protrusion that presses the switch into the ON state might be misaligned and not pressing hard enough against the switch. You might want to try to manual press the switch to the ON state to see if it makes a difference in trying to power up. Jack E/NJ

    It's the G3-570 series. The switch  SW2 is located just below the memory module mid-section. Jack E/NJ

    That’s the Predator n15p4 isn’t it? I’ve found where you wanted me to look at tho but I’m still unsure of what to do with it... 
  • JackEJackE Posts: 15,931ACE Trailblazer
    No, it's model number would probably be something like  G9-xxx or GX-xxx. Where did you purchase it from? The switch must be pressed down to get power to the mainboard. There should be a corresponding pimple or protrusion on the inside of the cover which would press against when properly assembed. Like previously noted, it's a safety switch to cut power to the board when the cover is removed so you don't zap anything if the battery was connected. Jack E/NJ
