So laptop's mobo just short-circuited.. It was working fine, and then my laptop instantly powered off. Additionally, when I plug my charger into an outlet, the green light indicator will turn on. However, once I plug the charger into my laptop, it turns off again. I've looked this problem up online, and I basically found out I'm SOL. I really wish now that I can just recover the files that I have.
I've previously had problems with my laptop and data recovery (www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/581575/laptop-is-giving-me-problems-after-closing-lid/), but I was not expecting it to completely die this time -- there is no light, noise, or anything when I hit the power button. Conveniently enough, this happens right as I have university finals (please note the sarcasm).
I would just like to know if any of you are aware of ways to recover my data that doesn't involve buying universal adapters or other equipment (is possible). If not, I'll look into this soon enough, but I thought I would ask first.
Thank you in advance!
