o.k, where to start............well it all started when i booted up my presario 2100 with the compaq operating system c.d(forgot it was in my drive) and it gave me some options to boot up(i was in a rush so i held down the power button to turn it off, took the operating system c.d out of drive, and preceded to start the laptop up again.......this is where the problems started, when i turned on the laptop it froze at the compaq screen and wouldn't load to windows, so i turned it off again, same thing.
this is when it all went wrong, the third time i tried to boot it up the same thing happened, i was getting a bit pissed off by this point :rolleyes: so when it froze on the compaq screen during bootup i pulled out the AC power supply from the back of my machine,
now the machine is dead, no power at all, no blinking lights no fan nothing.
the machine is not under Warranty so i sent it for an estimate thinking it would just be a silly problem, ESTIMATE is 290 british pounds, they say i need a new system board
surely i didnt wreck the system board by pulling out ac adapter during boot up.......or did I ????
could someone please read this long thread and tell me they are having a laugh. :cry:
