Laptop don't fail me now. Please? No? Fine, you're scrap

by Auleo / July 11, 2015 10:12 PM PDT

So, my previous motherboard decided to bail out on me so I had that replaced by a same make and model online for a good price. I have currently a dell inspiron 14 n4030 notebook that I love but it decided to have a heart attack. Now, I have replaced the motherboard, however, the only stimulus I receive from it is the power light on the front of the laptop and the optical drive seem to light up in sync every 3-5 sec or so when plugged in, and when its off the plug its the same situation except happens once. So, I'm not sure if I have to get a new graphics card or not. When I press the power button, only said lights activate. No fan, no start up noise, no logo or LCD display screen activity. I know your just being shy with your new friend lappy, but I will scrap you for an ASUS if you continue your shenanigans you loveable thing

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
