Hi. I've been using an MSi GS70 Stealth for the past couple of years. Last night, I was playing a game and I think I yanked the power cable by accident.

This has happened before and I'd usually just plug back in and reboot, but now it's not powering on at all. All I get is a white led for a second, then flashing amber on the battery led. The battery never really worked for me, I'd always need to have it plugged in,

So I checked forums and did an EC reset, by taking my internal battery out AND pressing the pinhole battery reset button (with battery too). When that didn't change anything, I tried taking some flexes off and some hardware off and trying to boot, still nothing.

I checked motherboard and nothing looked out of place/smelled burned.

Tried holding power for 60 seconds with and without battery, then plugging in and it's the same. The power button also briefly goes white and orange for a second and the computer makes a weird buzz when I try to boot.
