Question about Computers & Internet
I can pull the power cable, power light comes on. harddrive light will come on for a few seconds and I can feel it. open and close the cd and can feel that wind up, no display. heatsink fan will start and then stop, it is not free moving, it will not spin. I am thinking it is the motherboard or power supply which I believe is part of the motherboard? I am medium on laptops. Power light will come on. I am attempting to fix this for a friends son but it looks like it will cost to much. I would like to dump the harddrive but I don't have the cables. What is that cable called? thank you.
I have an adapter for the hard drive have just order 5 of them i havent
received them yet(i can send one your way for a few bucks if you would
like) its not the power supply if things will spin up... check the
voltage on the adapter and see if the voltage is what it should be , i
will get you a link to a flow chart and see if that will help if you...
you can e-mail me at Fixya@whyPayForHelp.org for a faster response. so
the computer WILL NOT stay on? check on e-bay and see if you can get a
fan.... also see if you can get me a model number serial number and
config number so that i can look at the base componets , worst case
scenario you can ship the laptop to me and i can have a look at it (i
will provide all info, necessary so you know i wont steal it ) :)
otherwise if you have a webcam i can also look at it while you have it
near another pc
