component either damaged or shorted to ground. disassembly and clean with 90% isoprophyl alcohol, be gentle
I opened it up and used a vaccume to clean it I will try what you said thank you it's crazy how it worked after all that time and now it don't want to
dont use anything else than isoprophyl alcohol 80% or more is okay also but 90% better. dont use vaccuum to clean components because it can give dishcharge and damage your motherboard components
You dont need to clean whole motherboard, just look all connectors and places, even like keyboard connectors etc which have signs damage, be gentle really. Best thing is to buy toothbrush with SOFT brushes. Dont use anything else than soft ones. It drys faster if 90% or more but dont worry isoprophyl alcohol isnt conductive so no shorting :=)
Ofcourse more easily breakable things like screen or keyboard connectors with something else than toothbrush, maybe some wipes or paper
upload some high resolution pictures from both sides of the board after cleanup. Remember remove heatsinks and processor and tapes if you can see juice leftovers could be under there
