Sager power(?) Issue, no signs of life


Jul 23, 2016
Ok so have a strange problem. I have a Sager laptop (I forget the exact model, it's the one that looks like it has tail lights).

I was playing a game and it powered off overheat style. I got a can of air, dusted it out, waited about 30 min and tried to power it back on, zero response. I pulled the battery and held the power button down for 10 sec, plugged it back in and tried to boot it again, zero response. I noticed here that on the system LEDs that the AC/power LED was yellow. I also noticed that when I tried to boot it that the system LEDs AND the power brick LED would go dark until I unplugged it from the wall and plugged it back in.

Next I tried reseating every component that wasn't the CPU or the GPU, no effect. I unplugged the CMOS battery for about 20 min and plugged it back in, no effect. I had my friend use his voltmeter on my power adaptor, it's spitting out the proper voltage. Any ideas?
