Problem with HP dv1311

  1. Hi to all. This is my first post.

    My hp laptop does not turn on any more. There is no power light also. Someone suggested that the problem might be on the motherboard. I tried to remove the back to access the mb to check first the connection of the dc input plug. However, there is a very small hex nut near that dc input.

    Where can I get a very tiny hex nut driver? I checked Radio Shack already.

    Anyone else have come across this problem or can suggest anything?

    I have already checked the power chord and its ok.

    Hi Bender95 - welcome!
    If you are not sure what you are doing, do not try and take the laptop to bits - and you cannot get at the board from the back anyway.
    What has probably happened is that the power connector block on the motherboard has come away. You need great skills to put it back.
    If you are in the UK I have the name of someone who can do this for you at a cost of about £100 + VAT, otherwise I recommend you find a suitable repair shop for this.
