Question about NEC Versa LX Notebook
Hi i have a nec versa m400 laptop running winxp, it was dropped from a low height and afterwards wouldnt boot up, it sounds like it is going to for all of 10 secs then does nothing, although i did note that after it was dropped the wireless ligh twas now on when it wasnt before. I took the laptop to a computer repair shop and the tech tested the hard drive and the ram, both were fine, so he assumes it is the mother board and that it isnt worth fixing, i brought the laptop home and decided to try it one more time, before i turned it on tho, i pushed a button/knob thingie on the bottom righthand side and a plastic card thingie with 4 empty rectangle shapes popped out, i looked at it, wondering what the heck it was, pushed it back in, pushed the start button and lo and behold the computer booted up and i was able to use it normally for 1 hr, then i shut it down thinking whatever the problem was it had solved itself, but when i tried to start it again in the morning, im back to it doing nothing, i have tried fiddling with the plastic card thingie again (yeah im real computer literate) but still no joy. so now im not sure that it is a motherboard issue, and that instead it maybe something else that would be reasonably simple to fix if i knew how, any suggestions would be gratefully recieved. Thanks Daisy
Take it to another Repair shop and explain this to them. It is likely that a connection inside has become loose or cracked. also that card you removed is just a place holder for a pcmcia type card connection and your laptop will work fine with it or without it.
If you cant afford the repairs have a tech savy family member or frien remove the cover to inspect it.
