My laptop has led light when plugged in. When I press power button the light goes off. If I hold down button the light comes back on. In any case nothing happens, no boot. If I unplug the lcd monitor at the motherboard The second led light comes on and the unit appears to power up. Do you thing the motherboard is repairable.
Even if the motherboard is repairable it will be a heavy cost to repair. At that old of a Laptop, It wouldn't be worth spending that much money to repair it & that will be X cost. You could potentially find the same laptop for a lot cheaper than looking for the board.
