Question about HP Compaq Presario C304NR Notebook
Our dog chewed the power cord while it was plugged in and it stopped working. We replaced the power supply and the battery since it went a long time without use after all that. It still will not power up. No lights at all showing on the laptop and battery will not even heat up after trying to charge it for several hours. Charge light on the power supply works as it is also new. Actually we bought 2 extra power supplys. Neither turn the laptop on, even tried with the battery. Is this going to be an expensive fix or better buying a new one?
If he chewed far enough into the cord that it shorted out, then the power supply would have been killed instantly, but not before taking out the motherboard on the laptop with it.
The motherboards for laptops are rediculously expensive and a new laptop would be the way to go.
The next best option is to hunt around on eBay and look for one that has been dropped and had the screen smashed. You could salvage the motherboard from it, or transfer your screen the other way.
The good news is, people will pay good money for dead laptops on eBay for that very reason, so you could always sell yours there to help cover the costs of a new laptop.
Sorry for the bad news
