|This is a laptop. If you think it is the power supply are you familiar enough to know if this a serviceable/replaceable component or unit .I am a 20+ yr.elec.tech by profession servicing and repairing A/V equipment. I have changed a few laptop screens and minor fixes for friends I admittedly am pretty green with computers. A problem I should pursue or send to HP.(Actually it is father in laws).|
Any advice would be helpful. Would the fan run for a few seconds if supply was bad. Is it worth even removing the HDD,memory,etc to check for defect pulling down the supply?
