Question about Computers & Internet
The computer wont turn on at all no light no sound no nothing
Basically testing the motherboard is a process of elimination. Unfortunately for laptops it can be pretty tricky. First thing to test is the charger. Most chargers have an indicator light on the box midway through the charging cable. Check to see if there is a light, and if so is it on?
If the light is on then the charger is probably OK. The next step is not so cut and dry. If there are no lights AT ALL then it is probably one of two things -
1. The DC power jack where you plug the charger in has a bad connection. This is relatively common and is a pretty cheap fix IF you know someone who can solder a new one for you.
2. The motherboard is bad - laptop motherboards are costly to replace and often you are better off buying a new machine
The problem is in diagnosing which it is. They both have identical symptoms, and the only real way I can think to discern between the two is to try the fix for number 1. and if that fails then the motherboard is likely dead
