Laptop not booting up
\015 When switching laptop on the screen doesnt come on,hdd not spinning but i have checked the hdd externally and that works fine,doesnt boot when i take out hdd,memory or anything else that can be removed,i did this to see if it would post but still nothing,i was told that the earlier dell laptops had a similar fault and this was down to the video cable bringing down the power supply.any ideas thanks.\015
You didn't mention the model number of your notebook, but another common issue on Dell notebooks was the power connector on the back becoming loose and no longer making a solid connection to the machine (or worse, shorting out). This is a difficult fix as it requires resoldering the connection.
