I'm basically been attempting to resurrect a old hp nc6230 laptop that had died on me some years ago.
The old motherboard was damaged by a short, basically would not power on any more.
I've bought a refurbished board, and transferred my components onto the new board. Laptop boots but post no video, dont have any onboard speakers so I can't hear if there are any post beeps. I've tried every combination to figure out what is wrong to no avail.
Ive replaced the motherboard twice and Cpu , no good. The ram is working as it boots in another laptop and I cant get no video internal or external.

Any suggestions?

Are you sure the problem was the motherboard and not the psu? A psu shorting out can cause damage to other components such as the mobo.

Possibly but the orginal mobo got shorted because a wire made direct contact with the exposed circuitry, so far I've attempted to get the laptop running using both replacement motherboards I'm out of ideas.

Does it have a ground wire that hooks to the chassis somewhere? many old laptops did. Wouldnt hurt to try a different power cable either if you have one.
