It has been around 5 months since i got this laptop and was working impressively well until a few days back. Out of the blue my power button stopped functioning
and couldn't type " ! " (currently typing on an external keyboard). The only workaround to turn the SC15 on
was by insetting a pin into the CMOS hole
. Several things i have tried
points to a hardware issue.
- Clearing the CMOS
- Updating the bios (now on 1.06)
- Draining the battery
- Resetting the PC / Factory Reset
None of the above solved the problem.
I am outside of US and will be visiting to get it replaced in December. What i am worried is that the replacement process would take longer than 2 weeks and with Christmas coming up i doubt it will ship back on time.
Has this issue plagued any other SC15 owners or am i the only unfortunate owner?
Would love to hear solutions from the EVGA team.
