Re: It will not turn on
I believe the power button connection is part of the palmrest assembly on this model. If by "inadvertyanty disconnected" you mean "broken the connnectors" then I don't know what to say, otherwise you simply reconnect them. The service manual can be downloaded here. Any reason why you thought there was a problem with the power button connection?

It could be because of your Switch Button, To find out the problem open the case and find out your switch connector wire which goes and connect to the motherboard. Now remove those wire and try shorting power switch connector with and metal or with screw driver. To short the power connector you need to find out the proper two pin on the mother board. after doing all this if you can switch on your computer at once then you know what is the problem. If not then just let me know.
Hello there first unplug the computer then open the case now look at all connections and make sure that they are all seated really good locate the power supply cord that hooks to the mother board and disconnect it now press in on the power button for 30 seconds now wait 1 minute and reconnect the power supply to the mother board and reconnect the power to the computer and restart you may have to go back into bios and make sure that the hard drive is set to be the master ok Hope this is very helpful for you Best egards Michael
it should be under waranty seeing that the motherboard is malfunctioning again. normally the hardware will go out before the motherboard and seeing that its the same problem again mark the motherboard in a nice little place with a marker to insure they are not doing a repair and giving you back the same faulty board.
A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power
adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop,
remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop &
see if it works. If the laptop works directly from the power adapter
with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case
we can suspect that the battery is defective.
It will either be your motherboard or LCD. The first thing you want to do it hookup an external monitor to your laptop and then power it on. If you get normal video on your external monitor then it is an issue with your LCD that can either be the cable that connects the LCD to the mother board or the LCD itself.
If you get no video at all on the laptop or the 2nd monitor then it is a problem with your motherboard and you will need to have that replaced. Be sure to test for video on the 2nd monitor with the laptop closed and then opened. Also, make sure you press the function keys on the keyboard to switch displays. It would be no fun to think the mother board was bad when it was really the LCD and you just forgot to enable the external port :)
Perform power drain and check it..
This might be the issue with static charges on the Mother board.
If this is the case, follow the steps and the issue will be resolved.
1. Disconnect the AC Adapter.
2. Remove the Battery.
3. Hold the Power button down for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Reconnect the AC adapter and do NOT connect the battery now.
5. Turn on the Notebook power.
Method 2: remove and reseat the RAM modules and check.
Method 3: remove the Battery which is on the mother board and restart the computer and check.
If the issue is still there, then connect the computer to any external desktop monitor and check. I hope the issue is related to the monitor or the Video card. In this case, please contact the nearest service center.
lay down the screen flat
then get the two screws under the power bar
lift up power button bar carfully,you will see ribbon cable connected to the mother board with little brown clips, one on the power button also, this ribbon cable is very thin, and you probably will see the cracks with maginfy, order ribbon cable on ebay
