It does seam like a mother board issue ..but I suggest to check the CPU ..if you can get one with a similar socket ..even if it is smaller on properties...just to see if it works ..cause usually when you do have power indicators..and the fan works ..it shows that the motherboard have power ..so it may be ok ..and only the cpu may have issues or something ..So my advice is to see the socket time (see the specs for the laptop ) ...get another one ...second hand but be sure even if it is a cheap one ..that it is functional ..and try it on ..It might surprise you ..In my oppinion ..this is a clear cpu failure..(remember that the fan is powered up from the motherboard..and if this one is faulty there isn't power present .on the fan nor in the indicator led ..
Hello there, I recommend that you take your computer to a technical store somewhere local. From what you have said, there can be one of two issues. 1) The power source is not functioning properly. This would mean that you would have to replace the power source with something that is compatible with yourmotherboard. 2) The motherboard is not functioning properly. This would be quite unfortunate as the motherboard is the backbone of the entire PC and it is hard to replace a motherboard that is compatible with everything else. Unfortunately, with the PC not booting into POST (the basic writing when you just turn on your computer telling you about the different components of the computer), you computer is not able to do the very basic of tasks. Again, i recommend you take it to your local Microcenter or similar store. I hope this helps. Thumbs up are welcome!
You may have a bad battery. Many times laptops will not work if the battery is faulty. The first step would be to replace the battery with a new one.
Second Step: If the battery is working, then you may have a faulty AC power supply. It may be enough power being brought to power up the LCD light, but not the computer.
Third Step: Yoru mother board circuitry could be bad in the sense that some circuits are broken or the power conduit is not supplying the power to the rest of the circuits on the board.
If you are not a professional and able to troubleshoot in this manner after testing the batter and AC power supply, then I would suggest taking the laptop to a store for them to test the circuitry flow of the mother board.
Hello there first unplug the computer then open the case now look at all connections and make sure that they are all seated really good locate the power supply cord that hooks to the mother board and disconnect it now press in on the power button for 30 seconds now wait 1 minute and reconnect the power supply to the mother board and reconnect the power to the computer and restart you may have to go back into bios and make sure that the hard drive is set to be the master ok Hope this is very helpful for you Best egards Michael
You would be better off phoning small pc repair stores and getting the best price to replace it
not a good idea to fix it yourself
the cost usually runs between $60.00 - $100.00
I know people that fixed me themselves and believe me they have ended up with problems
