You need to check the power cord, borrow, beg or steal one to test. If the laptop does not charge with a different power cord then the problem is elsewhere eg. a faulty power pack or even a faulty connector that plugs into the laptop (borrow a multi-meter to check the voltage of your power pack), also borrow a power pack to test your laptop, before you buy or send it away for a quote/repair.

If you determine that the laptop is faulty, then the cost of replacing a motherboard would not be worth it, even if you found one, it would most likely be a second hand one and how would you know it works, also if you are not technically minded you will it difficult to swap motherboards and it may not work when you put it together.

I suggest you put your money towards a new laptop, it will be faster and better.

How do i find a manual or the secret menu?


I don't think a monitor setting is causing Windows to not appear.
Here's some tricks I would try...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

It's not the RAM.
It's not the CPU.
It's not the power-supply.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the power-cord.
Disconnect the power/data cables from the 3.5" diskette drive, the disk-drive, and the CD-ROM drive.
Disconnect the mouse.
Disconnect any printer.
Remove any USB devices.
Reconnect the power-cord.
Turn the computer on.

If you still have the problem, then it MUST be the motherboard.

Emachine will not come on


Reseat the power cord that is on the motherboard. Sometimes if you pull that cord from the motherboard (be careful there is a clip that is holding it to the board) wait about 1 minute then plug the cable back onto the motherboard your machine will possibly turn on. Also unplug your power supply cord from the computer when you do this. The other issue could be that the battery on the motherboard is dead.

Dell inspiron 6000 power supply shot...


There are no internal power supplies in laptops. What has most likely happened is as your laptop fell it either landed on the part of the power cord that was sticking out the back/side of the computer or the tension was so great on the plug from it falling that the power supply connector on the motherboard has broken loose from the motherboard. I have seen this happen a lot. This is not a job for an amatuer. It takes someone with knowledge of laptop repair and motherboard repair. In your best case scenarios either the little strip that contains the power button has popped loose and is not making contact (seen this happen in one case) or the power supply adapter (not part of the laptop) has been damaged and torn some wires. In the first case just try to push that power button strip down on the laptop first to see if it will snap back in place. If you can find someone else that has the same adapter you can ask to borrow theirs for a few minutes. Medium case scenario is that it has broken the solder loose and just needs to be resoldered or a new power plug soldered in. Worst case scenario is that it has cracked the motherboard, which will be expensive to fix (it would have to be replaced). Continuing to try and use it in this state (unless it is the best case scenario) will further damage the motherboard as the electricity will start jumping to places it should not go and eventually destroy the motherboard.
