MSI Laptop won't power on

Question

I have an MSI GS30 Shadow, and it isn't powering on. When I push the power button the keyboard will light up and immediately turn back off. This happens while plugged into a charger, as well as without one. I have tried to take the battery out and have had the same results

Remove the RAM completely and try to power on.  Will it stay on and beep or blink at you?

I removed the RAM and it still does the same thing. The keyboard and power button light quickly and immediately turns off again

When you say you took the battery out, do you mean the main battery or the CMOS battery?  Was this laptop working fine and just one day stopped turning on?  Did it have a fall or have something spilled on it?

I removed both the main battery and the CMOS battery. It was working perfectly a few hours before the issue started and suddenly wouldn't power on. It didn't fall or have anything spilled on it, just stopped working with no clear cause

Is this the same laptop that is missing a capacitor that you talk about in your other post?
