Hey guys, I've got a laptop question for y'all.
My Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5535 laptop won't turn on. I think the motherboard or power distributor is fried. I was publishing a video & it was clocking at 100% most of the time, eventually it turned off. I discovered it off & switched it back on. Shortly after booting I heard a loud *ping!* & the laptop wouldn't turn on.
I've tried just using the battery & using the power lead without the battery plugged in, but I don't get a single LED coming on the laptop. What should I do to fix this?
Also, if I take it to the Fujitsu Siemens repair service or PC World, is it true that they need to scan your entire hard disk for illegal files so that they can't be blamed for it?
I'm replacing the HDD (below) just encase.
