This thing has been running absolutely great for some time. Upgraded to a Samsung 840 EVO 1TB SSD, Installed an Intel 7260 wireless (replacing Atheros), installed 16GB Ram, got the touchpad to be incredibly responsive, Installed Win8.1 and even got the newest Synaptic driver for Win7 to install in Win8.1. Everything was awesome. System was incredibly responsive and a joy to work with.

I had IE up and googling something then had to leave the room for bit. When I came back the computer was off. I pressed the power button. The power button light came on as well as the lights to the left of the keyboard then the system just turned off. The time this took was just a second or two. No boot at all.

I have tried AC only, battery only, removing all power and holding the power button down but there is no change. When both the battery is inserted and the AC attached the battery light will come on orange and will turn green showing it charged. Other than that nothing seems to work.

Thoughts? I'm thinking motherboard. Do you concur?

Edit by cl-Albert: Can you please double-check the notebook model printed under your notebook? Want to make sure you are in the right section although it's a general question and probably will not matter too much. Thanks!

You know, I've been calling this a g75 for several years. It is a G73jw, not a G75.
