I have an older laptop I am trying to repair. The problem started when one day last summer I had the laptop plugged in where I usually have it. I had left It plugged in after I read my e mail that morning and left it there for the day. whilst I was gone for the day, I came back from being out and noticed something strange about it. It would not start, It was completely dead, no indicator lights, nothing! For a matter of fact, It would turn off my indicator light on my electric cord and it also freaked out my external battery when ever i would plug that in. I have since taken it apart to see the source of the problem. It seems that something is wrong with the plug in to the motherboard. I was wondering if there is a fuse involved or is it just that the motherboard had been fried, or is it something else completely?
thanks for any info.
