Hi folks,

 

I've been trying to repair a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1705, which was overheating at the socket where the power cable goes in.

 

To get to the socket involved quite a bit of "unplugging" - but I got there and removed it, then soldered in a new one.

 

This works perfectly and the motherboard still has power.

 

I plugged all the wires back in, switched it on and got BIOS beeps and the hard drive sprung into life.

 

But, after a minute or so, it switched itself off - and now it won't switch back on.

 

Is there anything I can do?

 

Thanks,

 

Andy

PS Just checked and found that things like the hard drive casing and CD Rom casing are "live". Is that right?

PPS Or that could be earthed. One of the two, anyway!
