Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook
I gave a Dell E1505 and I believe the motherboard is dead. When I plug the power adapter into on outlet the green indicator light comes on, however when I plug the other end into the notebook the green indicator goes out. The battery aoppears to be ok - all five LEDS light when I press the test butten. How expensive is the MOBO and how diffficult to replace.
This is the starting price for a new motherboard >>>>>
To be honest with you they can cost just as much as new laptop and it's not easy to refit them either.
There is a lot that's involved with dismantling a laptop and can be more hassle than its worth unless you think you have the patience for it and have a good memory for where leads, screws and hardware goes.
The reason the LED on the PSU goes out is because there is a feed back problem either at the AC adapter on the motherboard or a powerboard problem, which to inspect or troubleshooting them requires disassembly.
Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

In my opinion, if the motheroard is dead and it is an older laptop, it is now spare parts. BUT first, try another power adapter to make sure that is not the problem. You do not want to replace the motherboard with the same one, you should want to upgrade the MB. But laptops are one of a kind deals where a newer, better MB just won't fit. So after you have checked to make sure it is not something simple to fix, consider a newer laptop.
