My computer has been working great recently, but about a week ago i took it to a friends house. i plugged it in and the computer booted, the fans were going and it did the usual beep. However, it seems i do not get any external power for my display keyboard or mouse. I suspect it's either my motherboard or CPU that needs replacing but i would love some confirmation of my suspects before blowing any cash.

Before I looked inside the box I'd check outside. Are you very sure that the adapter is supplying power to the laptop? If the power is getting to the laptop check the battery, maybe boot without the battery installed to eliminate that possibility. If adapter and battery are good then it might be time to look inside the box.

Keep us posted

Sometimes a stick of ram can get bumped out of a slot and cause this problem. I would start by re-seating ram.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.
