I saw this add online Would like to hear input on what it could possibly be and would it be worth the inexpensive price. I would love to have a laptop like that and I can't beat 75.00

"This laptop does not power up. The battery charges completely and the AC power light comes on, but it will not turn on for unknown reasons. Great candidate for repair or parting out. When it was working it spent 95% of its time on a desk. Screen swivels 180 degrees to convert into a nice tablet PC with a 14" screen. Here are the specs:
Pentium M 725 (1.60GHz), 1GB DDR333 RAM (2x512MB), 14.1”XGA, 60GB(4200 RPM) HD, 802.11bg (Intel) Wireless Card, DVD-CD/RW, SRS TruSurround XT Technology with Virtual Surround, 6-cell (4700mAh) Lithium Ion (Li-Ion)battery (~4 hrs. run time), Intel Extreme Graphics 2, 16-bit stereo; Built-in stereo speakers, Built-in microphone, and more! Includes power adapter and stylus."

So the laptop powers up but no display or back light?

One of my friends in my LAN tornament brought it to be asking whats wrong with it. Opened it up and saw about 15 resistors blown off the motherboard.

Its a shame, he spent a good 3-4k$ on this alienware, just went outside the warrenty. =(
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

It would all depend on the make and model
It could be something as simple as a standby switch

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
