My daughter's G580 shows no signs of life. No lights of any kind.
I tried the "remove battery and charger cord, press the power button once per second 10 times and then hold for 30", but it made no difference.
I tested the the P/S and it's putting out a solid 20.5v. I removed the keyboard and the keyboard bezel and removed the power jack/USB board and checked continuity through the board. Everything seems okay.
Is there anything else I could check? I'd hate to think the motherboard is shot.

I have the same problem same laptop model, G580. I did the same troubleshooting pressed the power button 10 times with 1 sec interval in between then pressed and hold for 30 secs. Somehow the cpu fan starts to run for like 3 secs then went off. Now Im back again with the same problem, no response at all.

Just to follow up...
I'm the original poster and after spending the last couple of weeks trying to figure out if I should get this thing repaired or just replace it, my daughter decided to give it one more try. The **bleep** thing booted right up!
Now we'll wait and see if it lasts...
