    Your reseller should be able to source you a replacement.

    RAM checking:
    You look for Memtest and follow the instructions on how to run the test. If it doesn't give you any errors then you are good to go with RAM at least.

    Left side of the laptop should be CPU fan not GPU....

    P.S I think it is better to go with the laptop back from where you bought it and ask them to check it.

    Every memory test I've found requires the laptop to restart, which is a problem because the laptop seems to randomly decide whether it wants to turn on or not. The problem has gotten worse, before it used to take 2 mins to post, now it's not posting at all :(

    I'm going to buy new ram and try that out. The problem is that I just moved into my university dorms, and don't have the required tools to open up my laptop - I'll have to buy those too.

    Just to clarify, is the CPU or GPU fan under the WASD keys?

    Also, I absolutely need this laptop for university so sending it off is the worst case scenario. I also bought it from XoticPc when I was in the US, but now I'm in Canada so sending it back will be very expensive.

    So I bought an extra stick of RAM and tried it in all 4 RAM slots. I tried resetting CMOS, disconnecting the battery , removing both my HDD and SSD, but nothing is working. Oh and I also broke my keyboard wire while trying to access the ram slots under the keyboard. I am at my wit's end. I guess my only option is to ship my laptop to Xotic and get charged a fortune for out of warranty repair.

    What a sh*tty start to my 3rd year with this laptop.

    Have you tried re-flashing your BIOS?

    If you are referring to resetting the CMOS battery then yes I have tried that.

    Any solutions which require getting into the BIOS won't work because the laptop doesn't post.

    If you have tried swapping everything out like that and it wont even post then it needs to go back.

    Do you know how much a full motherboard replacement is expected to cost?
