Hi, so I got this laptop a year ago and had this same issue from the beginning. The power button sometimes would have a hard time turning on. It seems like it is loose. No matter how hard I press it does not turn on, I have to wait a long time before I try again and then it will work. I have sent the laptop in for repairs 3 or 4 times in the one year in hopes that they could fix the problem and each time it comes back fixed and then break a week or so later. I am posting on this forum because my one year warranty expired a few weeks ago and I was just wondering if there is a way to fix the problem myself since I experienced the problem again yesterday.
