First:- Turn off the computer, press and hold the PWR button for 4 seconds.

Then - Leave only keyboard and mouse connected, disconnect all externally connected
devices such as Docking Station, USB storage devices, displays, and printers.
Unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

Next - Press and Hold the Power button for 15 seconds to Hard Reset.
Rinse and Repeat; Re-Connect the AC adapter.

NOW begin checking/testing/proving the Hardware is fit for purpose.
Power on your PC, press ESC (repeatedly), then F2 at the prompt.

You need to remove the devices or apparels attached to your laptop.

Then hard press the power button for a long amount of time (atleast 20 seconds).

Then repeat the procedure two times.

Power on the laptop.

Press ESC every 2 seconds and then press F2

Then choose system tests and the option to do a check of your hardware.
