Toshiba Satellite A215 power issue

  1. Ok, I am fully aware of the black screen of death issue, which I have along with everyone else who didn't pay attention when buying this comp, but this morning I tried to turn it on and I get a blinking battery light, but nothing else. I took out the battery and tired with just the AC Adapter plugged in, no blinking light, nothing. With the adapter unplugged and the battery in, I still get the blinking light. So I figured it had to be the adapter. I went out and bought a new adapter, but no dice. Anyone else have this problem? Know any possible way to fix this or what's causing it?

    Bad motherboard... Or broken DC jack. You could try removing the hard drive and see if the notebook posts

    It was the motherboard, I was pretending that wasn't the issue, but it was. Thanks though!
