Solution of computer dead

In reply to: computer dead??

1. Test the AC adapter, make sure the voltage output is correct. You can test the adapter with a voltmeter.
2. If the adapter is good, try reconnecting the battery. Remove the battery, wait for 1-2 minutes, plug in the adapter and try turning it on again.
3. the internal and external monitors show no image, the problem can be related to:

– Failed memory (RAM).
– Failed motherboard.
– Try cleaning contacts on the memory module.
– Try moving the memory module into another slot.
4.If external image appears after you disconnected the video cable, apparently there is something wrong with the cable. Replace it with a new one.
5. If the computer is still dead, try removing other internal components (wireless card, modem, keyboard, etc&hellipWink and test it with an external monitor after each removed part.
