    I can't tell if it the same issues I keep on seeing over and over I would suggest you try this but I need more info to confirm.

    Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.

    I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.

    From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.

    Did they give you any further details, a quote form with a list of the faults that lead them to the conclusion it was the motherboard?

    Are there any lights that come on when you press the power button?

    Really need as much info as possible to help any of us diagnose your problem.

Then let the repairman do the work. As long as he has a replacement motherboard and he can make your PC like new and work again. But think about the price if it is too high that you can buy a new one. Much better to have a new one right?

The satelite my laptop was connected with was hit by thunder and my laptop automatically shuts down and does not turn on can i fix this problem?

Hi, this could be power surge problem, all you need do first is to remove the battery of your laptop and plug the charger directly to AC power supply, now try to power on, see if it comes up, if it doesn't,it means your laptop need to be taken to a technician to help check if the mother board is still good.

Compliments and wish you best of luck.
