I've had my Asus G53 for about a year now, and an issue crept up a couple months ago that is quite peculiar. Just as an FYI, I fix/repair laptops and desktops for a living, so I know a bit about their hardware. The laptop powers up and shuts down just fine if I leave it in one location, however if I shut it down, and take it to class with me for example, when I arrive the laptop wont' power up for about 30s. After that time frame however, it powers up and works just fine, no issues. When I bring the laptop back home, it takes another 30s, then it powers on just fine. I can even move the laptop around while its on and it doesnt have any sudden shut downs or anything. I've double checked the ribbon cable that attaches to the motherboard for the power switch, and that wasnt the culprit. I'm at the point right now where I'm gonna do a full tear down of the laptop and put it back together, but that takes a very long time, at least an hour. Can anybody think of anything that could cause an issue, so I could perhaps save myself a bit of time?
