Hi, I currently have a Dell Inspiron 13 Laptop 7348 with 8gb RAM running the latest Windows 10 build. I have been on several builds of W10 over the lifetime of this issue.
Recently I upgraded my OCZ 240gb SSD to a Crucial MX200 500gb SSD, I had originally replaced the original hard drive maybe a year ago without issues.
The laptop generally works fine and I usually keep it running, letting it shut off display and hard drive after being idle rather than sleep because of the issues I been having.
Sporadically, not all the time, after my pc is powered off either by shutdown or sleep (at first I thought it was just sleep), it won't power back on. Its like when I press the power button nothing happens. Even if I hold the power button nothing. It does not matter if power adapter is connected or not.
The back lid has 10 screws, including one center screw. For some reason, I suspect it might be physical and the center screw is maybe touching something or shorting something. Usually the only way I can get it to start is to remove all 10 screws, remove the back lid, and remove and replace the battery.
I am totally lost on how to resolve this. I am thinking it doesnt really need the center screw but it would be strange if leaving that out would resolve the issue.
