So I have a friend of mines laptop. It is a dell Inspiron 1545, his wife accidentally broke the dc power jack and when she turns on the laptop it tries to boot the bios then shuts off and tries to restart.
My first thing was to replace the power jack board, so I did.
I now have the new one in and it's doing the same thing.
I took both sticks of ram out and tried 1 at a time and still does the same thing but when I take out both sticks of ram Iafter I do and try to turn it on i hear the boot beep of 2 short beeps.
I'm pretty much stuck. I know It has to be either the mobo or CPU but I would love to try to figure out which one because there is about a 80 dollar difference between them..
Any help would be great!!!!
