It's not a new build.
No fans no light.
Speakers and tablet light up fine though.
Brought it to three different repair shops.
Worked fine there on first try.
No hardware issues.
They can't diagnose it.
Brought it to my office and it worked fine there too. It just doesn't turn on at home.
Electrical outlets are working fine.
I can even charge my portable charger through the usb ports. What could be the problem?

Admirable
maybe something is loose and when you shake it carrying it helps?
thats magic like problem. I would suspect the outlets and try one for washing machine. It usually have dedicated socket so can give you more juice....

post parts please

There's one period of time in between the repair shop trips where it worked fine at home (with the socket I always use). And I didn't shut it down just let it sleep so it could be turned on through a mouseclick. But after a week of doing so it won't turn on through a mouse click anymore 😬
If its a wiring problem what could be done to ensure that its all connected properly? Ive tried reseating the parts and it still doesnt work...
