She DROPPED it.
Posted on 2004-08-26
I have a friend who recently dropped her computer. It is now "broken," and here's a description of the symptoms: It will NOT boot up. Pressing the power button only turns on the light within the power button and the STR (save to RAM?) LED on the motherboard. It doesn't turn on any fans or hard drives or anything. There is, however, a "test button" on the power supply. Pressing it turns on the various fans, including those connected through the MB.
She has a Gateway E4000. I have checked and double checked all connections, thinking something was just jarred loose. Everything is tight as a drum! Any ideas what is wrong? Any ideas what I can do about it?
