Bad motherboard I've been told that the motherboard is bad on my Dell Inspiron E1505 that is less than 2 years old. I thought it was the power cord because sometime it would charge and sometimes it wouldn't. Now it is dead. My question, if I replace the motherboard, will that fix the power problem and will it wipe my laptop set up clean or will it be the same as before we couldn't power it up anymore?

During power up, the pc quits working.Blue power light stays on but no power to hard drive or screen. Occasionally will get through power up and then quits working after 3-4 minutes. It's not the battery. Had a loose charging connector which I thought was causing the problem. Charging connector is fixed, but problem is still there. Believe the loose connector may have caused damage somewhere else.


I'd remain focused on the batteries. You can't have a blue power light on, unless there is power to the drive, I say this because you do power up occasionally, albeit, for a short time. This should also rule out Operating Sytem failure. Not hard dri ... Toshiba Satellite M35X-S111 Notebook

I have a friend with a Compaq Evo N60c laptop. He has asked me to see if i can get it working as there seems to be no life in it. It's plugged in but the battery has been fully discharged and even plugged in it takes NO power and is totally lifeless?? I have checked all the conections and all seems to be ok and there is power from the mains lead. (though not sure if there is enough power i'll have that checked today) Can anyone help move us on a little further with this or is this a common
