I bought a laptop 2 years ago and it suddenly wouldn't boot anymore. Since there was no power so my first suspicion was the battery. I brought it to a technician who made a thorough inspection. The verdict – dead motherboard. It is sad if that is true so I got a second and even 3rd opinion but all those technicians said the same thing. The only option is to have the motherboard replaces at a cost in the same amount as I bought my laptop on sale. No deal. The dead laptop is now in the stock room.
