Looking for good laptop repair shop

Got Lenovo legion laptop that already had been seen by 3 different repair shops and none of them was able to fix it or even tell me what’s wrong with it.
Power light is on and sometimes it turns on for a short time and then shuts down. Please help me find some good professional who can deal with complicated issues. GTA area

It stopped turning on after you disabled fast startup? Or you mean the laptop can't turn on to test it?

Does it have a removable battery? If not, then there may be a reset hole on the bottom of the laptop - otherwise the procedure involves taking out the battery and cmos battery and re-connecting them.

Try that. If it's out of warranty, you have nothing to lose by opening it. This tends to happen every so often and at first looks like a hardware fault, when it can be a very simple fix. Seen it happen on Thinkpads at work.

The alternative is that your motherboard is faulty, which is very possible on these models. Depends on your model, though the most likely outcome is a new motherboard and paying someone to install it will exceed the value of the laptop; in which case you'd be better off looking for another laptop.

If you are really desperate I can recommend you an excellent place in Brantford that is mostly phone-oriented but also fixes computers

If it is a cpu / gpu - then how much are you going to spend troubleshooting it? You can test parts that you can take out (e.g., RAM , HDD) etc.
to do CPU if its removable, you need another laptop that will take that cpu. Unless its an old machine, who will want to take out a processor out of a new one to do it? If it is an old machine - then chug it. You will endup spending three digits just figuring out?
Supply is the only Metrics that Matters
Active Listings has been the limiting factor for past 10 years.... and will be for next 10

Hence I pull exclusive data from MLS and update GTA HOUSING SUPPLY - Daily!

Help is what I do :)

Try and determine if its a hardware issue or software. Like if it just needs a fresh install of windows or needs a new hard disk. Motherboard etc issue is more headache to repair just sell for what u can or dispose. Take it as a loss.

This is RFD, we don't let bros spend money at a shop. Warranty, DIY, or GTFO lol

I suspect that since OP mentioned they have already been to three places and nobody could help, the writing is on the wall that it's not a worthwhile fix.
