Re: If a processor was dead would a laptop still power on (Light up etc)
What brand of laptop is it?
Some brands that use certain components in their machines have well known failures, usually motherboards or graphics chips. E.g. HP DV6, the first few ranges of Vaio with Bluray drives, and so on.
EVGA SLI Micro Z68 // Intel i5-2500k // 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz // Overclocked 2GB MSI R9 270X // Corsair Carbide SPEC-03 // Kingston Hyper-X 120GB // 2TB WD Green + 500GB WD Black
