My Chromebook won't power on.
Here's what happened: I had a full charge, I unplugged it and sat down with it on my lap. I used it for about 20 minutes and then I stopped using it for a few minutes and it went to sleep (or so I thought).
I tried to awaken it, didn't work. I tried to power it on with the button, didn't work.
When I plugged it into the charger, the orange indicator showed it was charging, for only a minute or so. Then it turned solid blue as if it was fully charged again.
Ive tried holding down the power button for 10-15 seconds, tried holding down the refresh + power button for 10-15 seconds, no luck.
I've tried a different Chromebook charger (also 45 watt) and it just shows solid blue but no luck turning on.
Very frustrated, I started a new job today and need this computer. I loved the machine up until this point and paid a pretty penny for the high specs (i5, 16GB RAM, 256 SSD).
Of course, like all the other customers with issues with their 713, my warranty is only a couple months past the redeemable date. Is acer intentially selling machines that break right after the point of warranty? Garbage.
Anyone have suggestions? Seems like buying a new battery is hit or miss to fix the issue (mostly miss), based on other people's experiences.
