Laptop will turn on after a few attempts

Specs: Windows 10
Hi. My laptop (ASUS X555LF) will turn on after a few attempts. I press the power button and nothing happens.

When laptop is plugged in the battery diode doesnt light. I have to press the powet button for 20+ sec. (more times) or sometimes I have to press the button fast 5+ times in a row. Then laptop turns on and the diode is normally lighting. Battery in laptop is okay, charger too.

Is something wrong on the mother board? What should I do now?
Thank you.

Try Derek's phyxe - which seems to resolve more than a few startup/power on problems...

Remove all power - battery included; press and hold the on/off button for about 30seconds. Release (obviously) and restore power and se what happens?

Try starting without battery first; then repeat with battery only; then both?

You say battery and charger are "OK".. How do you know this? Have you tested laptop without battery inserted, and also battery only power. Likewise are you certain the charger is truly delivering correct volts/current (power) under load (laptop attached and "switched on)?
