Is my laptop motherboard faulty?

£0.00 @
I have an acer aspire 1640z laptop, when i switch it on the power light and cd drive light will briefly flash then the laptop goes off, would it do this if the motherboard was at faulty?

So nothing is displayed on the screen whatsoever before it turns itself off?

Yeah mine went like that an took it to get fixed and they said it was the motherboard, which was beyond repair or would be really expensive to fix, so now i have a £600 laptop that is useless and it is only 15 months old..

Thats a shame, HP are usually ok, I only know of a few people who've had problems with HP/Compaq machines (mainly hard disk related).

The most reliable laptops I've used are Sony Vaios...worth every penny (they are not even as expensive as they used to be these days)...I have had extended warranties but I've never needed them...if nothing goes wrong in the first 12 months it is unlikely to go wrong in the future....unless it is a hard disk related issue or accidental damage related issue (insuring the item is sensible if you are scared you might damage it) in which case your extended warranty will probably not cover you for information loss anyway and you can buy a new HD and keep going.

Take a look at how many Sony laptops sold spares or repairs on Ebay,last time i looked there were 477,With a desktop a warranty is not a major issue as every part can be changed but with a laptop be prepared to throw it away the day the warranty runs out,
