My laptop has no signs of power. I was told a small chip on the mother board has burned out. Something to do with the power.


Sorry, but he's probably correct. You need to replace the whole motherboard.

You will never be able to find the chip to replace, let alone find someone qualified to correctly remove the bad chip and then replace it with a good one.

The dc power jack will not accept power. I have to wiggle it to get the blue light to show that the laptop is charging. My computer is the acer aspire 5920-6423. I was told it wouldn't have to soldered...


If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.

The laptop needs the motherboard removed to get access to the DC jack so it can be resoldered or replaced if it is faulty.
This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

I HAVE BEEN TOLD THE MOTHERBOARD HAS COME UNSODDERED FROM "SOMETHING". I HAVE TO HOLD THE POWER JACK AT A CERTAIN ANGLE TO BE ABLE TO START THE LAPTOP UP, THEN IT WILL SHUT DOWN AFTER 10 SECONDS. CAN...


The DC jack, where you plug the power adapter cable, might be loose or defective, & needs to be either re-soldered or replaced.
In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard taken out. Also, the motherboard needs to be checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

There is no response at all when I try to power up. I was told it is the motherboard however I have only owned the computer for 15 months and it is no longer under warranty.


Check first if you have a green light on your power adapter, If yes your power adapter is good, maybe your output cable of adapter is broken, If not, You power connector on you laptop is broken. If you laptop recieve a charge light , for sure your adapter is ok. In order to verify your motherboards is ok, remove your ram, hdd. Put back the ram and try to power On the laptop, If still no luck, the power mosfet location at the end of motherboard need to replace. Bring your laptop to expert technician.

I have been told my motherboard on my toshiba satellite P205-s747


Try removing the memory, then putting one stick back in and see if it powers up. Then try with the other stick.

Memory is accessed from a door on the bottom of the machine (one screw to open it).

Motherboard is expensive to obtain (neighborhood of $250 US) and time consuming to install even for the experienced. To pay someone to do this could exceed the value of the laptop.

M2000 cannot power on


get multiple advice from different technicians... changing motherboard in a laptop is not cost effective. check your warranty and send it back to manufacturer.

do this first... disconnect all power source --take out the battery from your laptop, disconnect the power cable... leave it for 5 minutes or longer and reconnect the power source and turn on the laptop. "if this works, don't go back to that technician that says change the motherboard"

if this doesn't work and and you get the same recommendation to change the motherboard from other technician... it is more cost effective to get a new laptop. if you replace the motherboard, you will have to pay the shipping, service and the parts = new laptop (new warranty)
