Question about Packard Bell (181379) Motherboard
Sorry for my English. I'm Portugese working in the Nederlands. I will to do my best to make me understanding.
I thing we are on the good way. My mobo is not exactily the yours, but aproximately the same. I send you 2 pictures of my mobo. do'nt let the electrical wire (i'm trying to read electrical current (voltage) with a 9,5V battery.)
Please try to find or identify the diode and the fuse on my mobo and if it's possible with the partnumbers or values and send me the pictures back with an indication (perhaps a RED ARROW?) on the pictures
Do'nt take care about the electrical wire. It's just to take measure of voltage with a 9,5V battery.
Thank you very much for your help, and sorry for taking your time
I will only write my experince which can't be solution but a little information about this problem. The Diode in red circle in my case was short and had cause the Fuse to Ground connection. And so the fuse itself was burn and also the diode.
I have my own question. What is the job of that diode there? Need help with my dead fuse and short diode.

Don't worry for your English, I'm french and mine is not so good...
The first component seems to be a diode : what is its indication near it on the mobo ("Dxxx" or "PDxxx" or what else) ? Check its resistance in both direction.
I don't recognize any fuse, and the orther picture is too far (components are too small), but you should look for indication like "Fxxx" or "PFxxx" or "FUxxx". Sometimes, fuses look like green resistor (flat and rectangular) with a cross on it like X. Just behind the diode it's a resistor because there is "R010" on it. However, check its resistance to be sure it isn't grilled.
When you put the power on the mobo, do you find voltage beetwin ground and positive pole of components ?
May be you could resend picture of the other side but nearer.
Hoping this help you...
