I’ve had this laptop for about 2 years and something weird happened. I was using it like usually and then it just shut off. I tried to put it on charge for an hour, didnt turn on. Took it off charge, didnt turn on. And not even the charging lights turn on.

    i'm in the same boat, today it just powered right off. My blue power light, fans and keyboard backlight appears for 2 seconds then back off again. Every now and then just the blue light stays on for exactly 5 seconds then off again. I tried resetting the battery and taking out the hdd and ram, i just can't take out the ssd cus the screw is too tight.

    That has happened to me as well but today its not coming back on. I think it might be dead if not even the charging light is coming on.

    Does the laptop work on the charger or mains pugged in or does it do the same? If it turnsoff, try to remove the battery and press the on button for 30s without the machine been powered up, then place the battery in again, and see if it powers on and/or it fixes the problem.
