Dell XPS 15 power

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A while back the plastic around the hinge of my Dell xps15 broke, I bought a replacement piece and installed it and everything seemed fine. But when I go to switch it on the power button only lights up when I hold it and the rest of the laptop doesn't switch on (I cant hear any fans working) I tried unplugging the battery and running git through just the charger but the same thing would happen. I left it to charge over night but nothing changed.

Speculations

 

1. There might be a wire that got cut

2. If the cpu is removeable, it might got moved when the heat popes were nudged.

3. Same thing might have happened to the gpu

4. The ssd/storage devices got moves

5. Ram got moved

6. There is a part that got broken aside from the hinge.

 

 

Solutions

Try to inspect for component damage

Try to check for heatpipe contact on the components.
