This started about a year and a half ago. 6 months after I bought my laptop my power button seemed to stop working, but I discovered it required multiple taps to power on. Ok.
About 3 more months go by and now my laptop requires hard presses simultaneously. And then it stopped powering on all together.
I checked the board and found a dark spot around the power jack... i then replaced the charger, battery, motherboard and keyboard (I ended up puting the old keyboard back as it made no difference. ) and removed cemos. Now I could power it only if I held the power key for 30 seconds to reset the bios configuration. I then installed a bios update incase the bios might have corrupt. It fixed the issue I think but now I'm back at multiple taps on the power key. Anyone else got experience with this? Amy feedback or support is so appreciated as I've noticed Acer doesn't provide expired warranty support.
