Hp g60 seems dead after new motherboard fitted

by Markc23 / January 1, 2014 1:49 AM PST

Hi folks, really need some help on this one. Bought a second hand g60 that needed a couple of bits. I have fixed those bits and took the hard drive from my own broken g60. Now this computer was in bits when I got it but have tried the following

The power button trick
Swapping around ram
Taking out hard drive
Checked all cables and connections
Tried just taking the motherboard and fitting it to my g60

I get the battery light on but nothing else at all no noises or lights.

I am thinking motherboard but dont want to go shouting for my money back incase I have missed something.

Seems dead to me.

The g62 line is too well known to me. HP walked on repair of mine at 3 months which is a sign. You should cut your losses on the g6x line. Run away.

I'd shout for my money back and get something else besides an HP, especially that series, Mr. Proffitt made his point and I agree.
