Question about Intel Motherboard
My Packard Bell 4451 lap top will not power up. If i try to power up off the battery nothing happens. If I plug the power supply in together with the battery, the charge light flashes once, then the power light flashes once, the sequence does this all the time the power is on but pressing the start button the computer does not power up.
If I remove the battery, just using the power supply, both charge and power lights flash at the same time, pressing the start button the computer still does not power up.
I have checked the power supply and it is putting out the correct voltage.
I have the old battery and a brand new one.
If i plug the power supply in and test the terminals where the battery plugs on to, I can only get up to about 4volts max. from any of the terminals.
I have tried removing the internal battery and holding the start button to discharge the memory, but it still would not start.
The computer was working fine, the wife left it booted up one day after using it, when we came back to it all we had were the lights flashing as above and could not restart it.
Could it be the small charger pcb s/n: 2B180001 !A 0246 ? or do you think the mother board is dead?
Can you still get parts for this lap top?
Check the back of the power connector to see if it is loose. I have known alot of situations were, if not carefully removed, that power connector in the can free itself from the sodder on the Mother board therefore you wont be able to charge the battery nor boot up. hope that helps
