Not taking in power could be something else, can you describe the issue in a bit more detailed (leds, beeps etc ...)
ok... when i first got it (from ebay) when I tried starting it the blue power light next to the touchpad was on and the orange light in the front was on solid, when i hit the power button the blue power light would come on for just a flash like it was going to try and power up and didnt have enough juice... i used a different powerd cord (from my m5312) and then it started up like it should, no sounds or anything. It doesnt have a hard drive though so I wasnt able to get any firther than to just check the bios, everything was good. I pulled the computer apart just to see inside, only looked under the keyboard. Put everything back together and it would start up the same. Now... I took it apart a little bit more to get to the inside ram, did that and put everything back together again. The orange light in front and blue power light next to the touch pad were on with the cord plugged in. I tried to hit the power button... nothing.. i forgot to hook up the power board.... oops. So then i pulled that off after taking the battery out and unplugging the cord first. Hooked up the power cord back up and plugged the battery back in, now nothing is turning on..... i tried moving the cord around thinking bad connection but still nothing. I let it sit for 10 minutes then plugged it back in and the orange light went back on and so did the blue light next to the touch pad.... hit the power button and the lights went off, no sound or anything what so ever like its dead....
