Answers :

Unless you wrote down the mother board p/n code,hardrive p/n code and the p/n code on the case you really can't tell if its the same.also if you sold it as is you don't have to refund.you can try to flash the bios or switch the ram sticks out.if none of this works then it sounds like the buyer switched parts or give you back a broken one.you can try to boot the harddrive on a different comp and see if it works or has the same users on it.
Hi Bob,

\015\012Although there's really no way to know if he's scamming you or if it was dropped in shipping it is quite possible it wasn't shut down completely before shipping and the battery died in transit. If this happened it may simply be stuck in a power cycle.
\015\012
\015\012Ask the buyer to unplug the power and remove the battery. Have hime hold the power button down for 30 seconds with the battery out and ac disconnected then have him put the battery back in and turn it back on.
\015\012
\015\012If it was stuck in a power cycle this should fix it, if not we can try to diagnose it further once you have it back.

The laptop overheats, the fan starts overworking, and the touchpad can no longer reliably control the cursor. If I turn off the computer, detach and reinstall the battery, and let it cool down for a while, it is fine. This computer is rarely run just the battery and the battery recharges easily. So is that a power adaptor/battery problem, a fan problem, or something else? Thanks. Carole Jacobs
