WTF my laptop is dead. >.<
My Dell Inspiron 8600 just ran out of warranty 3 weeks ago.
It was running last night and the thing just shut off as if it lost all power. It was plugged in and not running of battery power. When I try to restart the computer the LED flash, screen with flicker for half a sec and that is all. No fans start up, no whirring, nothing.
I've read that some 8600 models have issues with the Vid cards frying....but does that sound like a vid card problem or a burned MOBO? The damn comp won't "turn over" when I crank it. If it were a vid card the comp would at least try fire up the fans and try boot up right? I get nothing of the sort.
Can anyone think of what the source could be? Looks like a new MOBO for this laptop is gonna cost me some change. >.< Ebay prices are in the $300-400 range.
