Answers :

Hi,\015\012I had a similar problem. The IBM NetVista 8307 could not be switched on. I checked the powerswitch, the power supply, I have disconnected all connections inside...\015\012After I connect the power supply to the mainboard while it was on electric power the board started to work ^^ !?

BUT... the BIOS made funny things and I could hardly boot up. \015\012Solution: The small battery on the board (I think its an Litium 3V) was out of power. After I changed the battery the system is working fine now. \015\012All the best for you,\015\012Stephan
Hi there.
If you have brought your machine from a different country and it was working there, then chances are you will need a new power supply that is matched to your countries voltage, most countries have either 240v or 130v, you will have to check into this! be careful however as you can blow the motherboard up if you use the wrong voltage.
My advice would be to purchase another power supply from where you live and install that one.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

When I opened it, the hard drive was just sitting in the bottom of the case so I attached it where it belongs.

I just bought a Sony Vaio at best buy and the ''geek squad'' wanted $40 to ''activate'' the second processor that supposedly doens't come active, they also were bragging that they would optimize the system but I just thought it sounded like a gimmick.
