I have been looking at tom's guide for solutions,
I have tried every method i saw, this asus x540u
I have is not turning on, i plugged it into the ac adapter but no lights, no backlights. the battery
is not removable, my only choice is to open it
but i am not good at DIY repairs. any solution
that does not involve opening it? i dont want
to ship it to asus yet (i dont have much money)

Lately, I attempted opening my x540uv. I then quickly went to charge it then i got a ORANGE light... after i try to power it on, the orange light disappeared... should i sent it out for repair or any solutions...

I think you should take it to pro fixer but don't give them carte blanche . Tell them to start off with an investigation and restrict them to a figure of the cost.

Some repairers will go the long way round and overcharge.

There is nothing much you can do by yourself if you are not handy.. but opening and disconnecting/reconnecting battery is surely not that much of a headache,

sometimes laptops do respond after disconnecting battery and a small cmos battery inside, after that press and hold power button for 30 seconds, then reconnect cmos battery and try to turn on only on adapter,

if it didn't worked then there is something blown in power circuitry and do need repairs by professional workshop. I think its a hardware defect since there is no light, you can try another adapter.

cheers
