Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop- Is it the processor or motherboard?
\015 Hi,\015\012Since you are the experts and I am not! I need to ask you for your help on this, please!\015\012Problem: When you plug the laptop in with the AC adapter or using just the battery [even with holding the power button down for over a minute before inserting the battery], I press the power button, the 3 lights lite up, but then nothing else happens. I have completely stripped the laptop, then inserted the processor the fan and its cooling unit part, then plugged in the AC adapter, and the same thing happens, the 3 lights lite up, but nothing else. \015\012So my question to the experts here is, do you think it is the processor, due to the fact that the 3 buttons do light up? Or, hopefully not, do you think it is the motherboard? \015\012I have already bought a brand new Dell battery and also replaced the CMOS battery. \015\012I just looked on the ebay (Powersellers, 99.8%) site, and they want $34 for one, but no refunds. I just don't want to waste $100. for parts and then to find out that they weren't the problem. So your input would be most appreciated!\015\012 Thanks,\015\012 Debby\015
