No power coming on with power button
This Asus FX505DD-DR5N6 ******is barely used. I plugged it in and it seemed to turn on right away, but then I shut it down and I couldn’t get it back on.
I unscrewed the back and unplugged the battery and CMOS battery and pushed the power button for 20 seconds to drain all residual power. Upon plugging it in (before screwing everything back in) I tested it by plugging it into the wall. It came on like a beauty.
I screw everything back in, then try to power on again, and NOTHING. Again I unplug the battery, and upon plugging the battery back in, it comes on automatically. So, it seems to me there’s something preventing the power button from turning on the laptop. BUT, and here’s where I’m super confused… the power button DOES turn the laptop OFF. So, it couldn’t be the power button, right? What’s going on… has anyone had this happen before.
It seems ridiculous to change the power button if it can be used to power off the laptop.
Additional Note: The light on the power button does not turn on unless I unplug the battery and plug it back in. When I do this, the laptop powers on automatically and the light on the power button is on.
Thanks for your assistance.
