Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I have a dv4017ap laptop ... was working properly yesterday my daughter closed the laptop without shutting down and now the laptop is completely dead


Answers :

Hi, I'm Steve, Can I get you to try something for me, please remove the battery pack, and power the unit just from the wall adapter without any battery installed.
\015\012
\015\012I have seen battery's give out their last breath, and when some do they develop a short circuit not only effecting battery but all power trying to get to machine.
\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't help please confirm a few of the following and we shall dive deeper
\015\012
\015\012- Is there a light on the adapter itself to indicate power?
\015\012
\015\012- Do we get any lights on laptop, or lke a display flash on power ups?
\015\012
\015\012Hope it is a simple as a dearly departed battery, if we have no power at laptop then first step really I do as a teco is confirm power at the power adaptors output with a multi meter, but some have a light on the power supply so you can tell it is working as these often fail too
\015\012
\015\012If all of the above and you have double checked the wall outlet several times, and the adapters working and the battery not dead, then at best it is the connector that goes from the adapter into the lappy, it cops abuse over time and breaks internally.....and if not then it is the motherboard, and that pretty much is the end of the story.
\015\012
\015\012But if we have light (any light) there is hope.....;)
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps
\015\012
\015\012Cheers

Remove battery, press and hold power button for 3 seconds, wait 5 more minutes, put battery back in and turn it back on.
