Power led lights up but nothing else works and will not power up. Is there a motherboard fuse or thermostat that I can check or solder?

    Lights come on with either batter or AC but not booting.



    I tried draining the power as HP described: remove AC and battery and hold power button on for 1 minute....n.g.



    Is there a battery on the mother board I can remove and put back or drain further?

My guess is to check the battery. If your laptop allows it (you won't know until you try), remove the battery and use AC power and try turning it on. If the laptop works correctly through AC power and without the battery, try to replace the battery to see if the problem is caused by the battery. Remember that all batteries lose their ability to store power after every recharge until they just drain power.

Otherwise, I don't have a clue what the problem is.

My compaq won't turn on and nothing shows that the current is in but the adaptor works properly


When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

If the motherboard is not booting then what is the solution for it?


To detect motherboard problem you need first test your memory, remove any drives and try to boot to BIOS, if nothing on LCD then try to boot with external monitor, if there is no any video signal output then look to led indicators, if there no light then you need to test power adapter, power socet on motherboard and fuse on moserboard near power socet, if power OK then try to reball south bridge or replace it, also you need to do it with 100% working CPU and memory!

Laptop wont power up


when you know for sure the adapter is charging ..and the battery is good..but no power seam to be present ..than the motherboard is gone .... or some contact is issued somewhere on the primary entry of the power..cause if any power would go through the motherboard..than at least the power led would be on ..or the fan should be heard .If there isn't any ..than it is something wrong with the motherboard or with some fuses on the main power source way ..but its a long guess...more than probably it is the motherboard..to blame ..

Hi, Nothing happens when I try to power up. Blue LED light is lit. I tried Hard Start, nothing. Tried different charger, nothing. Any ideas?


Motherboard is defective & needs to be replaced with a new one.
You can find a replacement motherboard by searching on e-bay.com with the motherboard's model number. This could be found under the RAM.

When you press the start button nothing happen not light or start up


First remove the battery and put it back in, you want to make sure it has a good connection.

Next you want to check the power adapter. If it has a built in LED light, it should turn green when plugged into the wall. If it does have a light and the light will not turn on or it blinks, replace the adapter. Next, plug the adapter into the computer, does the LED light change? Example, the LED light was a solid green, when you plug it into the computer it blinks. If the light does something along those lines, then there is a problem with the laptop itself.

If the power adapter does not have an LED light, then you need to use a Multimeter to check if the adapter outputs the right amount of power...which should be around 12 volts.

If the battery and power adapter pass the tests, then you are looking at a hardware issue in the laptop. From your description of the problem, I would guess the motherboard has died or that the charging jack on the motherboard came loose and needs to be replaced or re-soldered.

Two things that would stop the light from coming on, No Power or Motherboard is broken.

My Dell laptop d600 suddenly shut off and will not power back up....led light on adapter blinks when plugged in...I have tried re-inserting RAM modules but this or nothing else seems to work.. thank you...


Unplug your battery and then plug in AC adaptor and see if laptop powers on. I assume you power button doesnt turn on at all? If so, your motherboard seems to have a power issue. Unfortunately, you have to replace motherboard. If laptop. powers on withour battery then you then battery needs replacement.

Laptop won't start


Majority of the time it's the motherboard. You can try booting the computer with the battery out and also try reseatting the memory. Other than that, there isn't much you can do. If neither one of those solutions works, then you can safely assume it's the motherboard and it will need to be replaced in order to get the laptop running again.

My toshiba satellite a135-s2276 won't turn on


A coworker used to work for Toshiba and said that this is common for the Satellite A135 models and under warranty the fix was a motherboard swap for a newer/updated motherboard. Otherwise the unit is unusable.
