Re: CF72

Have had motherboards become static choked, and all you can do if this is the case is to leave it plugged in to power supply, but turned off, for a day or two. don't know if it works with laptops, but sure works great with "dead" motherboards.

When I try to turn my Toshiba L300 Laptop on the battery light flashes and nothing happens.

Here are things to try:
Check the voltage on your power cord--transformer. I think it should be about 18 volts.
The problem sounds like the battery is discharged. If the voltage you are reading is too low or it's not putting out any voltage at all, then your battery may very well be dead.
Try starting with only the AC power and no battery. If it's a battery problem, this might work.
If everything checks out OK, then it might be the power plug on the motherboard or possibly the motherboard itself that is bad.

Laptop wont power up

This is what I would do before chalking this thing up as a hard ware failure try connecting thie to another adpator if that then does not work you indeed got a HW failure with the laptop and the motherboard would likely need to be replaced, Get it evaluated by a technition the geek squad at any best buy wull be able to test this real quick for you do not loose a good laptop over a faulty adaptor trust me this is where the issue could result.

thanks and please do leave postive feedback, ratings for your free naswer today.

My acer aspire 5920 is completley dead it will not turn on with a fully charged battery which was charged up using a second 5920, it will not turn on with a working power supply either. I have completly...

Might your switch be non-functioning? Can you check that independently?

Otherwise, sounds to me like you did eveything.

Same thing happened to me with my dog once. I let him out and that was it! :-)

Doesn't switch on.

either your HD, or motherboard has gone bad also if you are seeing a green light on the charger it could also be that the battery is not charging or the adapter is really not charging and is therefore defective

Compaq Presario 700 Series Laptop wont turn on

Please first make sure that your adaptor is working.
Try to remove the battery and connect your laptop to the adaptor. Swith on. If nothing chages, then there is good chance that you have a motherboard related problem.

Lights Flash, but won't Power!

Did you happen to notice any brown spots on the motherboard when you were replacing the conductors? There seems to be a short problem with these models. I've had 4 or 5 with the same trouble.
Let me know.
