Question about Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro V2000 Notebook
If you've tested the power pack and are sure it is good, and the battery gets no response either, you've got hardware problems, obviously. Unplug the machine from the powerpack, and remove everything that can be removed; battery, all cards, all cables, and, turning the machine over, open the hard drive and any other bays and remove every hardware device you can find. Leave only the memory in. Then, try to power it up; if you get activity and power lights, it is a hardware short in one of the removed devices. Otherwise, you probably have a pulled cable or cracked power connector somewhere in the powerline.
If all else fails (danger - may trash the machine) unplug it (obviously) and try to remove the lower laptop casing to expose the spot where the power connector plugs in. Check this area carefully for cracked or melted plastic, and, if nothing obvious seems wrong, continue the disassembly checking for anything amiss (loose cabling or ribbons, maybe a plastic mounting pin that has broken off somehow). If you do all this and find nothing strange, the motherboard current overload or overheat sensors (if the motherboard has them) may be faulty, or any number of other (unfixable) things. If you get that far with no results, find the biggest geek you know (think electrical engineer) and throw yourself on his or her mercy. :>)
