Hi there.
It is a possibility that the motherboard has blown, as a PC technician i would also check other possibilities first before condemning it.
The components to check are the power adapters, both on the power supply and the adapter socket on the laptop, check that the pin is not loose or gone completely, if its very loose or missing then you have your answer and it can be repaired.
Also have the PB (power board) checked, it could also be that.
You can check the pin yourself but a technician will have to check the PB.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

It could be the motherboard as it is what is powered initially and distributes power to all other parts.
such a problem can only be diagnosed by checking physically but if you are asking whether a motherboard can be the cause, then yes it can

The actual switch is rare to go, the DC jack in the laptop is more likely the issue and will require a complete tear down to access.

This code sound like a power supply or battery depleted code.
Your Power adapter may not be charging the battery. The battery made have reached "end of life".

Internal Hard Disk Upgrade


Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).
