This morning, I was watching some YouTube videos on my JH before I had to go to work. Suddenly the laptop completely shut off and as of now it still has not booted up again.

When I press the power button, sometimes the indicator light farthest to the left will flicker but nothing else happens. I took out the motherboard and it did not appear damaged. Also the charging indicator light does not come on anymore.

While I would love to use this as an excuse to build a new desktop I would rather not if I don't have to.

After messing with it for a bit, I think that the motherboard giving out. I managed to get it started this morning but after a while, moving the display or the computer caused the same thing to happen. Unfortunately I know very little about pcbs and how to determine a fault, if that is even possible. If anybody on here has any idea what the problem might be or where to start looking I would appreciate the help.

After further expeeimentation I am able to get it to appear to start. The power button, power indicator light, and num lock light all turn on if I press the power button with the battery in but nothing else happens. It also does this if I plug it in without pressing the button. I noticed that if I leave it like that, the ssds serving as drive C gets warm and the CPU fan turns on. So it is trying to do something but it doesn't respond to anything
