Hello Forum, I'm have some sudden issues regarding a GS43VR laptop I've owned for about 2.5 years:

Laptop: MSI GS43VR Phantom Pro-069. Its well used, and been with me over 4 continents and 2 deployments.

Issues upon startup:
  • Screen remains off
  • No front LED indicators
  • Keyboard lights up, does not go off
  • Motherboard fans activate
  • Power-button light remains on
  • USB ports do not discharge power
  • No sounds/beeps
Things I’ve tried:
  • Multiple Hard reboots - no change
  • Drained the power (removed battery, discharged power) – no change
  • Disconnected/reconnected RAM, HHD, SSD, motherboard – no change
Weird things:
  • Sometimes the keyboard backlight lights up on startup, sometimes it doesn’t
  • Sometimes the HDD front indicator LED lights up occasionally, sometimes it doesn’t
Anyone of you wise folks have ideas? I’d prefer not to replace this otherwise great laptop. Thank you kindly!
