Okay, so I gave an Asus laptop and I've had it over 2 years. A few weeks ago we were going to replace the keyboard and we were careful and e eveeything, but now it won't turn on.

The power button does nothing. If I unplug the power button ribbon, suddenly the charging light comes on. What's the deal?

I have the same problem. Replaced my hinges along with the aluminum lid, now it won't power up. I get a green battery light when plugged in using the wall power adapter.. any ideas????

try this. remove main battery, disconnect power adapter from laptop, hold down the power button for 20 seconds, re-install main battery, reconnect power adapter & turn on laptop.
