My Presario 2100 was recently sent to a local shop that deals specifically with notebooks, because it had a cracked LCD and I wanted to see if they could drop it into a new case. The decided that the charge would be $1200, so I asked them kindly to return it to me, like it was before. When I got it back, I plugged it in, and... nothing. No lights, absolutly nothing. It was working fine when I sent it in, other than the LCD, and I am afraid to take it apart because I have only ever dealt with desktop machines.... no laptop experience at all. Is there any way I can check the power source, other than the laptop, to see if it works itself? Otherwise, I havn't a clue what to do... I've tried removing the battery and cleaning the various inlets, but to no avail. I'm getting desperate! Thanks =).
