Hi all,
Asus J750jh laptop doesn't start up anymore, not even boot sequence, lights show up for few seconds and then darkness.
I have played for few weeks with eGPU case Gaming Station to make it work without being able to (Code 43 issue). Laptop was working I shut down and now nothing. Maybe its a coincidence that egpu was connected maybe not. any thoughts are welcome.
- removed battery to start up - no good
- tried to hold power button for 20 seconds - no good

Looks like graphics or mobo issue to me but will take it to the store tomorrow to see. If ther is anything else I can try I would appreciate your comments.

Technician said it was the power switch that blew. Coincidence? not sure.
It also took out G key on keyboard as it no longer works. Technician is saying entire keyboard needs replacing to fix the key....that sounds sketchy to me.
