One of my family members made a laptop adapter fall to the ground by accident, and now there is a big crack in the outer plastic of the adapter. The laptop won't turn on anymore. Not with adapter or with battery on its own.
Laptop: MSI Megabook GX-700. Model MS-1719.
DC Rating: 19V. 4.74A.
Did I buy the right replacement adapter?
So I replaced the cracked adapter by a new one, thinking the problem would be solved:
Yanec Laptop AC Adapter 90W
EAN code: 8718309027773
Inside the laptop
However, the problem is NOT solved. The laptop still won't turn on.
So I took a look inside of the laptop. Turns out that copper heat thing is not attached anymore (see picture).
My plan was to replace the thermal paste. But I don't think that will solve the problem, because that copper thing is bent (not sure how to bend it back).
And by the way, when this copper thing is not attached anymore, the laptop should still turn on, right? Because that copper thing only conducts the heat away, preventing the laptop to overheat, right? My humble conclusion: replacing the thermal paste won't solve the main problem of the laptop not turning on.
How to fix the main problem of the laptop not turning on anymore? Please help.
Thanks in advance.
