Laptop Not Powering On...
Well, I've got a laptop here and it's a problem I haven't had before in a laptop. Here's the scoop:
When you turn it on, all of the lights flash for just a second and then go off. No screen, no nothing.
-Hard drive is fine; I've got it hooked up to my computer now.
-I wouldn't suspect the RAM would cause it, but I've had it out and tried to at least have it show some signs of life, and I get the same thing so it's probably safe to say it's not that.
-I tested the battery and it's not dead. So, AKA, the charger hasn't gone bad. Battery was listed at 10.8V, it was measured right around 11, so that seems fine to me.
-I've tried turning it on with just the battery in and also with no battery and just the charger plugged in; and with everything plugged in.
-No fans spin up and the hard drive isn't being accessed in the split second the computer comes on and then off.
Is it safe to assume the MB has gone kaput? Or, is there something else that could be causing this issue? If it makes any difference, I believe it's an HP dv6000, but I'm not sure (can check if needed as it's sitting downstairs).
Thanks to anyone with suggestions.
