G580 Completely Dead

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.

 

Thanks!

Re: G580 Completely Dead

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.

Re: G580 Completely Dead

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...

 

Thanks all!
