Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I was traveling and apparently had a power surge in the Motel. After checking and talking to HP, concluded that the motherboard was blown. I replaced the motherboard but did not have any video. I found, however, that I had video when I hooked up to an external monitor. I replaced the inverter, cable, and then the screen and still no video (actually the ebay supplier sent another screen when the first one didn't work). Any other ideas of what I might try?? Thanks for your help. Darrell

    Was the replacement motherboard new, or a second hand spare?

    Make sure the connections from the board to the screen and inverter are all secure, and also that the cable from the board up through the hinge is not worn , as this would also lead to a failure of the screen.

Hi there,

First, check to make sure the power cable is plugged properly in the back of the monitor and into the surge protector. You can try a different power outlet, but if you're still having the same problem and the light isn't turning on, it's likely you've either blown the fuse inside the monitor, or you had a power surge and blown something inside the monitor. This happens when you don't use a surge protector and just plug the monitor into the wall.

That said, if the above doesn't work then you have a hardware problem with your monitor and it needs to be serviced.

HP Compaq laptop won't charge/power from AC due to blown fuse

First of all there are no fuses in a pc's motherboard, whatever the type.
In your picture the apparently faulty part is a filtration coil (L1 - the L refers to an impedance/coil) situated on the power like coming from the Jack1  - where the charger plugs in.
If your laptop :
1 - works just fine with a battery
2 - doesn't power on when plugged in the mains and without without the battery
3 - doesn't charges the battery
then , since the charger is good, the power circuit is cut after the the plug-in power jack, on the motherboard.
Use an ohmmeter to test the power circuit for continuity, starting from the jack.
So yes your busted impedance is most likely the failed part. Jumping it would fix it, but will leave the laptop without any protection against parasites coming thru the power line - use it from now on only plugged thru a surge protector at least an off line UPS at best.

Power failer

You need to check the voltage on the power adapter. If it checks out, you will need to call HP because this is an issue that is typically caused by power surge and motherboard replacement is usually the solution.

My computer does not boot

Actually, what happened here is a power surge. It happens to Intel mobos more than most, apparently. You're going to have to replace it. If you're lucky the mobo is still under warranty.

Power problem

Hi there,

The Printer unable to turn on could be of two reasons.

(1) Connect the Printer directly to the wall outlet instead of connecting through the power surge protector (If connected through surge protector).
(2) Check whether the Power adapter is getting warmed up after connecting to a particular wall outlet.
(3) Try connecting the printer to any other wall outlet and check for the results.

Hope this information would help you in this regard.

With regards,
