This could be a number of issues.

Here are a few things you can try.

1. take the battery off the back then plug the ac adapter in and see if the system turns on.

2. If that still doesn't work unplug the ac adapter (make sure system is turned off), make sure you are grounded (not on carpet) and unscrew the memory panel on the bottom of the laptop and remove a ram module. Most laptops have two sticks of ram. try alternating between the two sticks and the two channels. Sometimes a bad stick of ram or a bad memory channel can cause this behavior.

3. If the system still doesn't post then you can take the hard drive out and see if it will come on then. Again, sometimes a bad piece of hardware will keep a system from posting.

4. Check all other removal hardware I.E. wireless card (usually located near the memory)

5. If the system still doesn't post then chances are you with have a bad dc jack or the motherboard has failed. Typically motherboard's are too expensive to replace and dc jack repairs require you to take the laptop completely apart and do quit a bit of soldering. If none of the other steps work I would suggest simply replacing this laptop.

Hope this helps.

My Hp Pavillion dv60000 went through a power surge during a storm.

From the description the power surge went through the power adapter and into the main motherboard, I would have the power supply checked out, if okay! it means the motherboard has been compromised and at this point replace the laptop computer

Wharfedale LCD2710HDAF no power to tv, checked cable and changed fuse a few times, new power lead? or is this a common problem?


The power cord must be checked using a multimeter. The test is done reading impedance (ohms) between plug's prongs and contacts to TV power board.

If the power cord is OK and there is no power, then the problem is the power board inside the TV.
