Question about Computers & Internet
It will run from the adapter but will not charge. A new battery did not fix the problem.
Its ofteb so easy to say motherboard and walk away these days. Me and my fellow techs always try to isolate the issue with the boards IC find the actua components at fault and repair. There is nothing more satisfying that bringing something someone has quickly dismissed as dead back to life! Try getting a multimeter and testing the resistors you might have leakage (a resistor letting through the wrong amount of power) there will be other components on thee board that may be at fault too.
Since the model you have is so readily available see if you can get hold of a working one to compare multimeter readings with. If the faulty circuit that has a component that has a variable by comparison of the working model then theres your fault. Replace that part. Most parts you find on motherboards are available at radio shack.
You will probably find 4 or 5 of these parts need replacing but will cost you no more than a total of $5 to fix if you are handy with a soldering iron.
Remember motherboards dont die there compressed boards with carbon tracks. The microchips on them do they are quick and easy to replace.

It's a motherboard issue. There is a component or components that have gone out.
You need to replace the board. Most techs can't fix the problem itself, so a swap is in order.

4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it
