Hello room.I'm a new member and thank you Administrator for allowing me to join this site.
I had my HP ze5300 Notebook plugged in and was on the Web yesterday.I accidentally tripped on the cord and unplugged it from the wall.When i plugged it back in,it would'nt power on.The blue -power on- light/symbol only briefly will flash on now for a second.
The AC Adapter is supposed to output 18.5 volts(according to its printed specs) but my digital multimeter is reading 17.2v to 18.2v.It jumps back and forth between these voltages.
Should I try replacing the AC Adapter first or is it possibly a short somewhere inside the notebook?
Thank you very much for any suggestions.
