I have an MSI ms163a (gx600) laptop that I'm fixing for a friend, and I can't seem to put my finger on what the issue is. It won't power on at all, but it is most definitely receiving power, because the power light comes on, and will stay on, but nothing else happens. I've taken apart a few laptops in my day, but not enough to be able to distinctly visually identify something wrong from the inside. I was just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with a laptop and what they might have done to fix it.
My initial thoughts are: bad processor, or, bad motherboard. But, my working knowledge of laptop repair is still pretty elementary; I was hoping someone could enlighten me.
