Specs: Windows XP, AMD
I've just been given a laptop that doesn't work
at all though it looks new.
It's HP product. The problem is as follows:
when I connect the adaptor and power it on,
only fews lights appear and then it goes off. I
can't hear the fan running, nothing appears on
the screen, the HDD light is off. Only the
power led shows. Can anyone help, please?
many thanks

Remove battery and try again.

Second test would be to either check voltage on adapter under load or use known working adapter.

Could be motherboard connnector for DC from adapter failed.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
