MSI GS60 refuses to turn on

Hey everyone,

A couple of days ago after restarting my machine it refused to turn on. Taking out the battery, draining the remaining charge and inserting the battery back did not help, neither did resetting the cmos battery. As a last ditch effort I unscrewed everything again and took out both RAM sticks + SSD and then put them back in. This did the trick, but unfortunately for only a couple of days.

This time, I was browsing the web and stepped away for a moment. Once I came back, the machine had turned itself off. I again tried resetting both batteries and taking out RAM + SSD, but this did not help anymore. I also read online that you have to wait about 15 minutes before inserting the battery back in, sadly this did not help either.

Before this incident the machine had served me well for around 4-5 years. I had to replace the HDD and battery once, but apart from that no issues at all.

I tried turning the laptop on without the battery installed and just plugged to the wall, and it did this: ++ (sleep mode LED with the moon icon was also beeping). This icon also beeps each time I insert the battery back into the laptop after draining the charge, but after that nothing happens with it installed (as shown in the video only happens when there is no battery in the laptop and I connect it to the charger).

Has anyone encountered something similar with this model? Are some other parts in need of replacing? Would greatly appreciate any and all suggestions.

Here are some ideas to try:

  • Check voltage on CMOS battery. New they are 3VDC.
  • Try disconnecting components - main battery, drives, WiFi card, etc. also one RAM module at a time. Plug in charger and press power button. Does it turn on go into BIOS settings? If yes then one of the components is shorted or defective.

* Reinstall one at a time until problem re-occurs. You have found defect.

Hi Albert,

Wow, what a throwback. I'm on a new laptop long since then, but I do still have the MSI machine sitting somewhere. Seems they are stuck on the same issue though. I'm afraid there might be something toast with my motherboard and would require replacing it entirely.

..Did you try the CMOS (replacing that battery)? Ye; :( mobo I mean replacing that is akin to doing - replacing - your HDD ..if either is failing means reinstalling everything might as well get a new laptop ..
