Dead Packard Bell Easynote SJ51, won't power up

A Friend has asked me to have a look at her Packard Bell Easynote SJ51.
The Machine is basically Dead, it had been working perfectly until the other day, nothing has been spilt on it, it hasnt been dropped etc.

It will not power on, the battery charging light comes on, red, when power is plugged in, this light even flashes when you hold down the Power On button, but thats about all - the fans/hdd don't spin up no other lights come on.

I'm guessing the Motherboard has been fried.

Any Suggestions would be appreciated

Try to reset CMOS sometimes BIOS saves incorrect parameter (especially when overclocking) It must have 3v clockstyle battery into motherboard. If you arent familiar to disassambling and then assambling laptops it will be better do this someone experienced. Take it off 10 minutes to reset CMOS and then return back. Take off ram clean its gilden pins vith dry clothes or naplin and put back.

Simple test: get a flashlight, go with the laptop in a dark room and point the flash light at the screen. If you see the image then indeed the inverter isn't working. of you don't see it then the data cable between the motherboard and the screen has been damaged: replace it.
If the inverter is at fault you will need to open the screen cover and check if the inverter board receives power from the motherboard: if it does you need a new inverter board
If it doesn't then a complete testing of the motherboard will have to take place to find out why and if it can be fixed.

My SJ51 laptop wont start. The harddisk light comes on for a second and after that nothing. What can it be?

Most likely it will be your power converter. Try taking your battery out and press the power button. If it still lights up you have a major hardware issue, if it does not light up it is time for a new power cord.

How do I know if my packard bell easynote R4250 is dead?

If the laptop is more than two years old. Time to replace the battery. The power meter is not a reliable way of seeing a bad battery. If just one of the cells in the battery is bad it will not run your laptop , and the meter still would show 100%
