How to short the power button switch to turn on the laptop?
I’m helping a friend fix his M5-581t laptop.
It could be turned on but then it would shut down unexpectedly after a few seconds.
At first, I though it was either the AC adapter or DC jack.
Both of these were tested and replaced.
I also did test where I removed the RAM, 20G SSD, Hard drive etc.
I have been able to keep the laptop on by briefly shorting it on with the power button flat ribbon cable and then disconnecting it.
I think the button on the board is broken turning off the computer.
A replacement part has been ordered but I am weary that it will actually get shipped.
(The part is also unavailable on ebay or any other site except Aliexpress)
The ribbon cable has 8 pin-outs, it it possible to use another power button switch from another laptop?
Also, What on the switch board could be making the laptop shut off?
I tested the switch button with a multi meter and it seems to work as it should.
Also, I'm attempting to figure out the pinout.
so far I have
1 - ?
2 - ?
3 - LED 1 - Orange
4 - LED 1 - Blue
5 - LED 2 - Orange
6 - LED 2 - Blue
7 - S1 (Switch)
8 - Ground (S1)
