    My M18X turns on and off and so on when I push the Power button. Won‘t boot. Did someone knows what that could be?

    Sorry buddy, have never come across it. Need more info, when exactly does the reboot happen, i.e. how far does it load before it reboots?

    First, check the laptop for overheating, do a full cleaning with the replacement of thermal paste, if it doesn’t help, check the hard drive or ssd. There are very frequent cases that they fall off, but the main thing is to reset the BIOS from the very beginning .
    And one more equally important advice, remove the video card from the laptop, leave only one RAM bar, unload the laptop in full and start it, if there are no problems try to flash the BIOS to the last or unlocked one ... if it doesn’t help, then you should go to the service center , the problem is at the hardware level ..

    Likely a short somewhere on the board. for quick test, remove all MXM cards and see if the behavior persists. If it does, the motherboard has a short and it needs replacing or repair.

    A friend of mine repaired an AW18 Board with 7 Beeps. I hope it’s the same issue
