I have an old evesham 8050d laptop that was hanging on by being plugged in whenever switched on ( the battery didn't last too long ) now however when you try to switch it on all it does is show that its charging then that starts to flash.
When we took it to a shop they said "Its an internal fuse innit cost about 70 and will take a couple of days to sort ".
I'm a tad dubious to be honest but any ideas would be a great help :thumbsup:

that very well could be the problem. if you could find the fuse yourself and you know your way around the computer, you might be able to fix it yourself cheaper otherwise you just might have to trust the guy.

same its not mine and yes it is a pain could be the charger battery or summat else but all the parts aren't something you generally have hanging around to use as a tester like you would with a tower
