Hi,
If you,ve sat on the laptop, i don,t think you,ve completely destroyed it.
If the screens intact, then you,ve possibly broken the lid-catch switch.
Where the lid-catch contacts the base of the laptop, theres a switch mounted on the motherboard, this alerts the laptop to shut-off the screen, as the lid is closed. If your lucky, this may be a daughter board, connected to the motherboard.
you,ll have to find a service manual for, your model and go from there.

I seem to have totally lost power to my router. No lights noise nada. It doesn't seem to power up and i have no wireless signal.


Try unplugging the router and holding down the RESET button in the back of the router down for 10 seconds...then try to power it back on. Can you also try plugging the power supply into another socket?

If nothing changes then either the power supply went out or the router itself just died.

Most are covered for a year so hopefully you kept the receipt.

My Sony Vaio VCG-RB53 will not turn on. Just went dead. Other peripherals on the same power source are fine. I first got a black screnn with white writing and it tryed several times to start Windows XP and...


It could be the PSU (power supply unit), one that has a fan working and where the power cord goes into. If that goes bad then the computer becomes dead as there is no power going to any of its systems. If there is any sign of life in the computer then you can try by removing the RAM and reinserting them. Or by unplugging the connector from the PSU to the mother board. But remember to plug it in in the same way that you remove it from. remember it by the color of the cables. If by mistake you turn the connector by 180 degrees then the mother board will get burnt.

GPS III Pilot? will not power up


Try the dc plug too (also make sure the battery connections are good in the caste). IF still no power up, the internal battery may be shorted. Lots of info online for replacing the internal battery. Good Luck!

My monitor won't turn on?


If there is no power at all then it is either the power cable or the power supply board inside the monitor.

The part must be tested before replacement.

Blown dell motherboard


Have you checked to make sure it wasn't the power supply? If this motherboard is still inside the pc and the cd/dvd lights up, or the network card shows life, fans, case lights, etc: than I would rule bad mobo. If nothing shows signs of life, try power supply or even better maybe a lose connection.Check all cabling and wire plugs. Clean out any dust.
