    look at the silver topped capacitors that look like pop cans that the tops are flat not domed.

    do you think it is safe to say it is the motherboard? or by chance you think it is cpu? i found a replacement motherboard online for 120.00, cheapest i could find. What you guys think?

    hey pal check your buzzers in the motherboard and if it seems OK check the capacitors but nothing happens u can change your mother board but go for a brand new one and don't fall for fakes

    i would say it is the motherboard not the cpu. i presume the laptop was on external power with main battery removed?

    phonix01, reread 98sohc's posts as obvious you didn't read them at all.
