loose contact, doesn't switch on
due to language difficulties and to make sure I`m on the right track, here a specific question about my computer. ( i am a non technician, but am very good at fixing things myself..., so i want to give it a try!)
my IBM think pad doesn't switch on anymore.
I am quite sure it is a loose contact, since it happened several times during the last few monthes that he switched off by itself, when I moved the computer a certain way. I could easily switch it on again by than. that doesn`t work anymore, he will not switch on! The battery lamp is not on anymore either, when I connect it to the ac adapter.
so, do I need to change the motherboard (as described), or do I just need to find the loose connection to connect it back again?
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
the whole problem appeared again when i took my laptop on the next trip 8it's been moved around a lot in that time), but I couldn't fix it anymore by opening and cleaning and closing again. After that it did even strange things: switching on for a few seconds, and suddenly switching off again.
What I did then was simply buying the yellow part mentioned in one of the answers to my question in the first place. I changed the 2 parts, and now the laptop is working well and without any problems again. I am very thankful for this solution after wanting to give up a few times in the process of repairing my laptop and encountering a few problems.
Thanks so much for this lovely page and possibility to get help!!!
