Dell E6410 power on button doesn't work

EpicTechIT asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-17
I have a E6410 with A07 bios that does not power on by power button, or power off by holding power button. The only way to boot the laptop is to remove and reseed battery or to unplug and plug the AC back in. II have checked the BIOS settings and WAKE ON AC is disabled.

I have removed the hard drive and it still acts this way. What is the BIOS could still be controlling it?

thank you
