Try the repair service locator at the home page of Fixya. It will list any of our experts that are available or have shops in your area. I will recommend that you stay away from Bestbuy, they're expensive, and always trying ro sell you more.

Inspiron 1525 mother board problem can i fix?

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 shows that the motherboard have power 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 ..

Pc does not boot up ,no backlight on screen,only fan works,could it be the memory card ,or mother board? if mother board do Asus repair them ?

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!

My inspiron 1420 does not turn on.when i push the power button the light comes on then goes off. can someone tell me where i should check first?

Power supply and or battery. Take the battery out and try to start it with the ac supply only.

If you can find one try another power supply too. Sometimes when your power supply goes bad you just run the battery down till the day it wont restart.

If you have a volt meter you can read the output of the power supply and make sure it is putting out the right voltage.

No power wont start up.


check the power adapter if its still working.

If the power adapter is still working, then the fault is from the laptop.

The laptop is having a power problem from the mother board.

I don't think this is a fault you can fix your self. I would advice you take it to a technician to fix the problem.

I wish you the best of luck.

Toshiba a215-s5837 problem, ac light only flashes

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.

Hp tower just crashed, begins to start up and goes to curser flashing in top left corner of monitor it will only let me press f10 nothing else help

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

No power going into power jack

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

Broken DC in Jack

I agree, the best option is most likely a motherboard replacement.

You can search Ebay, there are several places that advertise DC power jack repair, But from my experience, repair is an iffy proposition.
