Question about Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2101 Notebook
I changed the harddrive and tried to restart it but it wont power back on. it came on for a few seconds and went off. not sure wat to do or if there is a damaged chip onboard.
Hello.. i didn't quite understand if the problem occured after you changed the HDD and then became permanent. However the possible reasons are the same in any cases. Please note that a laptop mainboard can power on even without hard disks, ram , video card even without it's processor. That's because the motherboard itself "scans" for them AFTER it has been powered and the BIOS loaded (yep you can't start without BIOS)during POST (power on self test). If your motherboard can't power on now try the following. Remove the hard disk and the ram memory and try to power on. Of course expect beeps and errors from the BIOS, but if the mainboard powers and some LED's flash or do something, it isn't the motherboard who is faulty. Insert RAM and repeat the test. If it still works, then the hard disk you've installed is not compatible. IF however after removing both RAM and hardisk and the mainboard still doesn't power,surelly there is a problem in the DC charge/power on circuitry, that requires a specialised service to fix it. Hope this will be usefull and good luck.
