I know this machine wouldn't even make a good boat anchor, however it's solid enough for a 10 year old.
My problem is it won't start now. The power and battery lights light up when start button is pressed but immediately go off again. I've tried with and without battery, did the power button drain , removed ram 1 at a time. I even changed the power button ribbon cable,(eyes aren't good enough to ohm out). and got new cable cheap enough. Is there anything else I should check before replacing the power/charging board? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated as this model is a real pain to open up for access.
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?
