    It would help to know the full model number of your laptop. For example SW5-271, SA5-217, etc? Jack E/NJ

    Sorry I somehow missed your model number in the title. With the laptop completely off, remove the charger. On the bottom, gently insert a paperclip into the reset pinhole for about 10 seconds. Then plug the charger back in. Try to turn it on again. Jack E/NJ

    I tried this several times recently but the same thing happens still. I’m not sure why.

    Remove the charger. Press & hold the paperclip. While still pressing & holding the paperclip in the pinhole, press & hold the power button for about 30 seconds to try to drain all residual charge from the mainboard. Then try it again. Jack E/NJ
