I have an old (~6 years) ASUS notebook that doesn’t turn on all of a sudden. The power, HDD, and WiFi LEDs turn on for a brief moment, then the whole thing powers down. This happens both on battery and AC. Does anyone have any idea what might cause this?

After a tremendous amount of suggestions from @insanity i grabbed a screwdriver and found that there is no RAM in the notebook. As it happens, i removed it to extend another notebook’s capacity about a year ago and i completely forgot about it.

Whelp… 🤓
