Default HP Laptop, no light codes. no power

Got an HP Laptop.

Ac Plugged in = ac light on motherboard is on. Ac = 19.5V. Bios = 3v
when I hit the power button, I get a quick power light, then both the power light, and motherboard ac light go out.

Anyone suggest anything other than a bad board?

Try removing the battery then turn it on. Had Dell computers that did exactly that when the battery was dead. It is a least worth a try...

Try starting it with just the battery without the AC adapter, then try the other way with just the AC adapter without the battery, if it still doesn't start try a different AC adapter. If that doesn't work try removing the battery and AC adapter and then hold the power button down for 30 seconds then plug the AC adapter back in and try to start it. If that doesn't work then again remove the battery and the AC adapter and also drain the CMOS power. If it still doesn't start it will probably be a hardware problem, if it is a hardware problem maybe it will just be a shorted out DC jack and not the motherboard.

I have a 1973 Ford Pinto. When I turn the key it makes a screeching sound and sawdust flies out the exhaust and head gasket.

Can anyone suggest anything other than a bad engine?

Try changing the air filter. If that doesn't help disconnect the air intake from the sawmill's dust chute.

Thats an easy one, the pinto needs RAM in the rear.

It's time to upgrade the OS from Pinto 1 to Corvette 6...

Seriously, I'd bet it's a bad MoBo at the vid card solder joints.

You mean to tell me it didn't blow up? My '72 Pinto did... Seriously, it did.
