Hi, I plugged my laptop to the wrong voltage 21 V instead of 17 V and I fried something because of the smell. I plugged the adapter later & the lights fashed & there was no power on the laptop, I already replaced the motherboard but I get the flashing lihgts & no power too. What else can I do?

Thanks for your reply. Yes the motherboard has a part burnt  Now I have a new one installed but the laptop will not turn on. I tried the charger in a different laptop & it works.

If you use your old battery inside your laptop, remove it and use direct AC power adapter and try to start your laptop.
