I have Dell 1764 for about 2 and half years and just recently power button start creating problem when I try to turn it on (it happened like over a night when i turned it off very fine and next day problem started. I can't even think a reason why it happened, it never dropped off or got anything spilled on it etc). Now I have to press power button few times, then it works. Sometime it starts PC on second or third attempt but sometimes I have to press it like tens of times to make it work. But yes, it does work in the end.
I get my laptop to repair shop and they fix it in few hours and got decent money but it work fine for about a week or two and then same problem started again (without any specific reason). Now they're saying it's related to BIOS and we have to find similar BIOS chip to fix it. Now it's been few weeks and still no good news.
So can anyone help, is it related to BIOS or it can be some other problem and any good tip about what to do to get it fix?
