Hi! I've been having this problem for a month now. In the earlier part, it wouldn't turn on when I bring it to school; but it does when I let it stay put at home for at least 2 hours. So I assumed my laptop wouldn't turn on because it was shaken during the trip from home to school, that it has to be on a stable surface for two hours before it turns on. I tested this assumption. I brought my laptop to school and let it rest on the table for 4 hours, but it still wouldn't turn on. I never brought my laptop to school again.
Even if I leave my laptop at home, it still wouldn't turn on after 2 hrs of being shut down. During term break, I didn't use my laptop that much, but I found out that I can turn it back on again immediately even without the 2-hr rest. So I thought, I must have overused my laptop, and gave it enough rest everyday. It even has more hours of rest than I do, haha.
I thought all was well, because I was really taking care of my laptop; but today, I can't turn it back on. It has been 13 hours, and nothing happens.
The blue light at the edge of the laptop lights on when I try to turn on the laptop. The fan is also working. I tried taking off the battery, while the charger is still connected. What could be the problem?
