This is probably a common question, but I can't seem to find much of an answer as how to actually go about solving it on a Google search, so I thought I would ask here instead and see what you guys think.
I have an old (four-five years?)
"Fujitsu Siemens" computer, Amilo M3438G made in germany, and due to it being dropped three years ago it has refused to work since. The only reason I am trying to resurrect this dead piece now is curiosity and a sudden sprout of free time after clearing out the garage for a sale
Now it's current state is that the charger works fine, but it seems to have no effect in charging up the battery or powering laptop itself. In trying to turn the laptop on you'll see just for a moment the battery light blink as you release the button (with or without the battery in)
, the duration of which it stays on is longer if you hold down before releasing.
I tried a hard reset with no luck. Not yet having a chance to open it out, but I plan to do that a little later on in the week with free time. The laptop itself was dropped on the bottom left corner, where there is a small crack in the casing, as you would see it if you had the thing open in front of you.
Would be nice to hear others thoughts on this. I'm not expecting miracle cures, but perhaps some ideas on how (if it could)
this can be solved.
