Ive had my Sager 5760 for about a year and a few months and it's been working great up until now. It won't start. It started when it no longer ran on power from the AC adaptor, but it still ran off battery power, so I was able to save and shut down, but now when I press the power button nothing happens. When the AC adaptor is plugged in the outlet the light is on but when I then plug into the computer, the light blinks. Ive tested the AC adaptor and the battery with a volt tester and they both work and Ive called tech support and they've confirmed that there is a short circuit that is preventing power from the battery and AC adaptor from getting to the rest of the computer and they want me to send it back, but that will take 3-6 weeks and cost a lot and I need it for school, so I dont want to send it back until Ive exhausted all other options. i plan on taking it to school next week and having one of my teachers look at it, because I go to a technical school and major in electronics so if I can disassemble it they may be able to pinpoint the problem, but I was wondering if anyone here can help me first.
