Laptop wont boot up?
Posted on 2015-02-12
I have a problem with my Toshiba Laptop (c850), the power adapter, of the laptop itself blew up when i connected it to the laptop. The smoke came out of the power adapter and it fries now so i went and source another same power adapter from the local shop but when i connect it to pwer the laptop on, the laptop wont come on.
I am suspecting, the motherboard of the laptop has fried too or could be the power tip burnt.
I am going to repair the laptop but i want to ask whether the simple fix is to purchase a OEM motherboard is ideal or solder the power tip.
Another question is, if i were to purchase a new motherboard, will the cpu come with it or i have to purchase the cpu separately?
I would like to seek some other suggestions before i make the final decision.
