My laptop wont switch on


Okay, I need some help and advice here. A couple of days ago, my laptop
fell off the table and when I tried to turn it on, it wouldnt work at
all. When I plug in the AC charger, the light shows up so its definitely
not the battery. I think the issue is with the motherboard.

I've taken apart my laptop but couldn't find anything unusual.. Oh its
a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro.

PS: If you require more information, just let me know. Thanks

The help is truly appreciated

Re: My laptop wont switch on

a guess would be the hard drive or the video. It could even have cracked the
board.

Zircin..

Welcome to the expense of laptop computers!

Obviously, not something that you want bouncing off the floor. While I
understand it was an accident, it's not something it does on its own,
it had a little help to make it from the table to the floor. The
*real* next step is to call Fujitsu (they're good people) and describe
the symptoms. They'll issue an RMA, carefully box it up and ship it in
for diagnosis/repair. Since they've likely got all the components at
their fingertips, it's easy for them to turn it around. Otherwise, it
appears that it's a guessing game for you. Put another way, how
important is it really to have your laptop working? If it is, you now
know what you've got to do...

Cheers,
Mr. Mentor

Well, it will charge and it turns on for a second then it switches off
again.

Did you try just on battery power alone? Also try powering it up on AC
and the battery removed. When it turns on for a second, do you hear any
beeps?

Re: My laptop wont switch on


When the battery is in, and I try to turn it on, i get no response.
However, when I plug in the AC and the battery, it will turn on for a
second then shut down. It will charge though. I think there is something
wrong withe motherboard?

Keep the advice coming. Its truly appreciated thanks

You never mention what happens on AC and no battery. As if the battery
is shot, this all makes sense. Yes 99.9% of most laptops can run without
a battery.

It won't power on without a battery. I think the battery is fine. I
think there is some fault with the motherboard, although ive taken
everything apart and can't see anything broken or fault on it. Let me
know if there is anything else I can try.

Again, the help is truly appreciated guys

That would probably be too expensive. -If there is anything else you
would suggest, please let me know. Thanks for the advice though
