I got up this morning to check my e-mail so when i opened my laptop i pressed the powere button to resume it from hibernation and about 2 minutes later the hardrive stoppped and the screen went blank.
It was plugged into the AC adapter and had the battery in. i went to a bunch of forum the past few hour trying to figure out if it was a common problem it seems like it may be.
But first i checked to see if the AC cable was working. the light was on and then i checked it with my multimeter output was 19.87v within spec according to the lable on the adapter. So i removed the battery and plugged in the adpter again, nothing. Then i went to my desktop to search online.
I found a thread about a common problems with the PGN models and it was about disconnecting the internal system battery. it told me to remove the keyboard and then the battery should be there. nothing is under the keyboard execpt for the top case of the cd-rom and the connector for the keyboard. i found another thred about the AC jack being defective. i removed it from the computer completely and plugged it into the adapter with the adapter into the wall same thing checked voltage 19.87v so the jack has clean good connection. .
I read it may be the power board or the mother board. im not sure if its the same thing or not. i know about electronics but not about PCs or Laptops. Any help in diag would be muchly appreciated.
