Question Laptop does not start in one go

Dec 24, 2019
My Dell Inspiron 5567 (i5 7th gen 8 GB RAM, integrated Graphics.) (2 year old) does not start at once. Once it does start everything works normally (Like it did when it was brand new). Problem is, its power button behavior is abnormal. It sometimes starts at one go other times I need to press the power button like 50 times to get it started. I got it checked from Dell Authorized center they say power button is not at fault.

No repairer is able to say anything satisfactory. I only get "May be" and "Could be".

That sounds rather fishy that they say it isn't the button and they can't give more info on the cause. Sounds a lot like bad techs to me.
Yes even I felt so while talking to them.

But this is not the first time I got this reply. I have consulted at least 5 different shops. Still no one has a satisfactory reply. I am frustrated, tired and disgusted with the laptop.
If it won't turn on when the button is pushed, and it happens both when connected to the charger and when on battery only, then it sounds like a bad button to me. The only thing I would suggest is either going with what some do which is never turn theirs off (not an advocate of that but some do it) or get the button replaced. However, if you choose to have it worked on, I would find a different tech than those you have spoken with so far.
