    the power supply board may have minor solder breakage but, im sure its the battery core itself not being able to hold that charge

    you can check the charger but, the batt core is dead. you wont get a reading from dead cell core.

    ok, its the power supply board that is failing to transfer the power. im sensing a solder crack that should be repaired.

    its probably the solder joint that connects the power switch to the board. its a minor separation.

I have a fujitsu e8410 which will not start up properly, when i push the start button it shows power but then the fan comes on and the cap num and shift lock leds flash and nothing else. can you help?


When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.

You may have already tried this... Please remove the battery to see if the machine responds to pluged in power by itself. Press the power button for about 30 seconds befor pluging in the power... this is usually the way to reset the laptop. A defective battery can keep the machine from working.
If there is no response, the motherboard may have been damaged or a solder gotten loose, either way, it would need to be taken apart to verify and the solution could be expensive.

Presario C700 won't turn on after installing new screen


Why was machine taken apart? Did you check memory to make sure it's sitting correctly?

Nothing happens when I press the power button except the light


Regardless if you don'r feel comfortable taking the comouter apart it needs to be taken apart and looked at. Depending on what got spilled inside the sooner the better. If it was a soda of some kind it could be bad.I would take out the battery and not try it again.

Blinking amber light means the battery is not fully recharged. Once it is charged, press the power button. If the the device still does not turn on take out the main battery and the backup battery. Put the main battery in first, then the backup battery and put the battery switch in the lock position. Press the power button and you should see initializing memory..., then starting..., then it will ask you to set up the device.
