my laptop is Asus. one day it won't turn on even when I connect it to the charger. the indicator lamp for charging is turned on but it still won't start. i went to engineer and he said my laptop have chipset problem and he can't fix it. he also said that my laptop probably got into contact with water so it can't be fixed. is there really no way to fix it?

Here are some troubleshooting steps that may help.
- Start with a hard reboot, remove the battery and unplug it's AC adapter then press and hold the power button for 20 seconds then try booting it.
- If it doesn't work reseat the RAM, remove them all for couple of second then put them back in making sure everything is seated properly.
- Again if these doesn't work but you can hear the laptop on but with no display, connect an external monitor and see if it would display anything because if it does that means it's the built in display that is faulty.
- Next to try is if your AC adapter is still okay by trying another AC adapter that has the same voltage and see if it would work.
- If all these will not work it would be a motherboard problem.
- Do contact Asus for a repair if it's still under the factory warranty.



When he said probably got contact with water, did it? If yes, you would need to replace the motherboard, and possibly other parts got damages also depending on how it got damaged to begin with. Motherboard repair may end up costing as much as a working laptop.
