I can power on but not with the power button.
Strangest thing I've ever seen. A customer gave me a laptop that was riddled with viruses and they were so embedded into the system that I convinced her Ubuntu would be better. She agreed and so I installed, updated, and added a few things that she would want. That's when I noticed the power button not responding anymore. I also had to open it up to clear the heat sink of crud and so I opened it up again to make sure I connected everything correctly and sure enough it is. Nothing broke and everything else works. Funny thing, though, is I can power up using the music button. I double checked the manual just in case I switched wires somewhere and everything is as it is suppose to be. Could this be software related?
