Why isn't the laptop being repaired? I read that you know the battery is gone but that wasn't fixed?
Why this matters is a failed battery can cause motherboard failures. Sometimes folk leave a failing battery in and the motherboard fails later. That 20 to 40 dollar part (battery) is to be replaced when it's dead. Not when you feel like it.
What’s wrong: laptop will not start windows, BIOS. Did get one error code beep
What I have tried:
1)motherboard swap (same problem recreated after swap)
3)Testing hard dive with SeaTools for Windows. While hard drive is connected externally to my PC, I can look at it’s contents and copy them etc. When running tests in SeaTools, I get a fail code of 6C9AC2A4. “
Serial number not detected, SeaTools did fail the drive,” as indicated on this page: https://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/seatools/seatools-test-codes.html
4)When turning on laptop, it only goes to a blank screen. Backlight does seem to turn on. An LCD test works (RBG all flashes).
5)Battery is believed to be dead. All of these tests are performed with the battery taken out and the AC Adapter plugged in.
Here is a video of the error code beep:
