I have a HP G60 Model G60-230US, p/n: NB041UA#ABA.
It will not power on, and the battery will not charge.
The power adapter is an original HP adapter, and it's voltage is verified using a MM. The LED on the power adapter lights up when plugged into an AC outlet.
Yet as soon as I plug the adapter into the HP G60 notebook, the LED on the power adapter goes off. I assume this is because there is a short happening in the notebook, and the power adapter switches off to protect itself.
I'm currently taking the notebook apart and was curious if this model has a separate DC converter that I can replace, or is it mounted on-board the M/B (if it is even the DC converter.) If it is maybe I can find the faulty capacitor and replace it.
I hope it is just the DC jack, but I doubt it is as it seems in good shape from the outside.
Anyway, any suggestions for such a situation?
