    Weird point of failure, try cleaning the socket with 91% isopropyl. Never seen that kind of failure before.

    I'll give that a go. I will also try unplugging the display cables and keyboard to see if its some kind of glitch rather than a component.

    Tried that, but after connecting everything back up and plugging it in all that happens is the left GPU fan comes on. That makes me think its something on the board which is not working.

    I need a full replacement of the panel with the power button, the tech servicing my unit aren't able to find the hinge that attach the ribbon. Any good links where to buy it? Thank you!

    Thank you! Fortunately some guy in here made one for me which is working fine. Now I'm facibg a problem with the video card (5870), the screen goes fully black and even when it's booting up, I can hear it booting, but no image. Need a new card but can't find a 5870 or a reliable seller.
