Question about PC Laptops
Hp Pavillion zt1114 i think it has something to do with the battery or the motherboard thing that makes it start because it won't start even if plugged, i don't know what to do, i'd like to fix it myself
I am facing the same problem right now with my gateway notebook. My laptop will work with the battery atached but not with the power adapter plugged in. In a case like this, there is probably a problem with the motherboard. I disassembled my laptop and tested the dc adapter on the motherboard with a multimeter while the it was plugged in only to find that there was no voltage going into the circuit. I also noticed that the small post inside the dc adapter was loose. This tells me that I may have a bad dc adapter. But this may not be the case with your laptop but it is possible. If you are not able to do this test then I suggest you have it looked at by a proffessional. I you don't have any experience with circuitry you can easily damage your motherboard. HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL.

I've tried other adaptors already... there's no reaction at all when i hit the power button. What else could it be?
Thank you for responding
