More information please.

Do any lights turn on when you press power? Do any lights turn on with AC adapter input?

#4: It is flashing like a normal time before I turn on the computer.

#5: Thank you! I will try, but does power switch connected to separate cable as keyboard? I can't check right now.

The power switch is part of the keyboard and connects to the board via the same cable.
