P53s will not turn off even with reset button

2020-08-25, 14:02 PM

Hello All.

I was downloading autocad software on my p53s. The install wizard said that the machine needed to be restarted at a certain point, so I went ahead and clicked 'restart now.'


Everything closed down and screen went black.


Power light stayed on.


Nothing happened, so eventually I tried to restart manually, by pressing power button.


(Power light was still on by the way).


Machine would not restart, so I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of to force a shut down ,including holding power button for 5 solid minutes.


I have also tried the reset hole in back,  but to no avail.

The screen is black, the power button light is on, and every now and then the fan goes.
