    does your laptop react on power button pressing? can you see the power led turns on when you press the power button?

    zombie, check if PSU "ticks" after inserting it in AC connector of laptop. if it "ticks" - you have short sircuit on 19v bus.

    I am not sure what u mean by that "PSU" but there is know short or spark and have a new adapter I try on it and the other think that there is no burn parts on the mother or nothing it is clean. What i think is that one of the resister(s) have gone or some think but I am not sure witch one to check to conform that problem.

    PSU=power supply unit, i.e. power adapter.
