HP laptop doesn't power up - A/C adapter light goes dark
I have an HP Pavilion ZD7000 and as many others I am having problems with it. It does not power up and according to many other people it is the power jack that's at fault. Well, I was able to replace the power jack on the motherboard with a fresh one but it still doesn't work.
To rule out the a/c adapter I tested one of those universal adapters by iGo Juice company.
Now this is the weird thing:
I plug in the a/c adapter in the wall outlet....the blue power indicator light goes on. When I plug the other end into the laptop the blue light goes out.
Why is that? Does that hint to any problem?
I highly appreciate an answer to this as the laptop is very pricey.
