HI,
I BOUGHT A NEW MOTHERBOARD AND REPLACED IT IN MY LAPTOP.
THE LAPTOP WILL NOW TURN ON, OR AT LEAST THE LIGHT WILL, BUT THE SCREEN DOESN'T LIGHT, THE KEYBOARD WON'T TYPE ETC.. AND IT SEEMS LIKE IT STILL HAS NO POWER. IS THERE ANYWAY TO TELL IF I HAVE NOT HOOKED SOMETHING UP RIGHT? IS THERE A DIAGRAM OR ? THAT I CAN GO BY TO SEE WHAT I HAVE MISSED? THANKS SO MUCH FOR ANY AND ALL HELP!

    Yes, I did install it myself and have checked and rechecked the ribbon cables, they are ok.

    How would I test the memory modules? This computer worked before I put the motherboard in. I had to replace it as I broke off the adapter plugin, I did add another module from the other computer I purchased that was the same but had two modules, but that was after it wasn't working also..thought that might help it.

    any other ideas or may it be the modules still?

    Thanks so much for such a quick response!

    Great, thank you for all the information, I'll check out all that you asked me to and see if anythiing will get it going.

    The adaptor housing wasn't shorted out. I had been using an adapter and had to have it a certain way to power the laptop. It ended up broke from having to be twisted this way and that to work , so I purchased a new one thinking it was the adapter. When i got a new one and tried to connect it to the laptop, the plug in (?) was crooked (on the motherboard) and I jammed it in trying to get it to connect up with the plug in and broke the plug in off the motherboard. I really don't know the correct names and hope I did answer your question right. Thank you once again, I'll let you know if all did or didn't work.

    I appreciate your help once again!

    I finally figured out the soluntion. There was a chip (?) that is under the keyboard top bar that was unplugged. I'm sure this is not the wording/name of it but it was the solution.
    thank you once again for all the help.

Still haven't figured it out. I am resigned to the fact that I don't know enough on the laptop so even with your great advice and help, I won't be able to fix it without a visual. I'm still trying though.
Thanks so much for the help.

Did you install the motherboard yourself? it sounds like you haven't connected the ribbon cables properly, also check to make sure the memory modules work and are installed

    have a look to see if the processor is firmly in its socket and that the heat sink is ballanced, try connecting the laptop to an external monitor, if you see the windows or post screen you know the memory is working! then pull out the laptop monitor cable and reconnect it, if still no output the inverter coil may have blown, just out of interest did the ac adaptor housing short out on the laptop?

Compaq Presario CQ60 won't turn on


If you already replaced the motherboard then try replacing the power cord. If you meant you replaced the cord already, the it might be your motherboard is bad.

My acer aspire 5738 charge only works when i toggle the charger head and if i move the laptop it stops charging, i bought the laptop second hand 2 months ago. thanks in advance for any advice given :-)


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.

Alternatively, the charger wire just next to the charger head might be damaged.
Some wire has frayed apart and is making intermittent contact with itself. This could be fixed by either replacing the charger with a new one, or replacing the charger head & the few centimeters of the wire connecting it to the charger & re-soldering a new charger head instead.

I have solved that problems by replacing the plastic Lamp Cover. NEC says they wear out over the years due to the heat. If you have a spare VT700 about, swap covers and see if that works. or order one from NEC, thay cost 5 dollars.

Hi,
If after the replacing the AC adapter the problem still persists , the power board on the motherboard has gone bad. The same can be repaired, but would require you to take the system in for repairs. if the system is under warranty then the best thing to do is get the motherboard replaced.


Thanks

My toshiba laptop would not turn on. I plug it in and there's no light. I thought it was a power adapter went bad; I bought a new power adapter, tried it and still it would not turn on. Please help.


Try replacing/removing battery in the laptop see if will turn on then. Also maybe your power board needs replace. then i would try a new motherboard.

Help guyz, i have my nec versapro va12j laptop reformatted lately but after doing it there no sound any more coming out from the speaker even using a headset. i had already checked on device manager...


OK you may indeed have the driver installed, but do you have your sound manager installed? Often you need a sound manager too. Again you need to install the whole package, and NOT just the driver itself. Usually just the driver gets installed if it is detected and windows just installs the driver only, and not the management software. You will need to obtain this installer to do this.

Power supply issues


hi there, i recommend replacing the entire board. once you have a short like this, the micro board itself will become useless. the thin micro circuitry has become separated within the layers, preventing a closed current transfer. its best to order a new canvas so to speak.

Computer won't turn on. d600


hi
If you have replaced the power pack (assuming the power pack is BRAND NEW and has a green light to indicate that there is power going into the adapter) i've seen cases where the green light is on the power pack but no juice is flowing to the laptop - so if its2nd hand i'd look at a new one.
Failing that remove battery and try - battery could be casuing the motherboard not to accept power due to faulty battery
Failing you have tried all the above then it looks like your motherboard needs replacing

Sorry

Replacing new lamp


Hi - You can download the manual from the link below:

NEC vt465

Look at page E-30, make sure the cover is screwed up tight as there is an "interlock".

Most likely is the lamp hour meter needs reseting:
