Hi everyone, so I've had my NP5160 for about a year and a half now and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately, the other day I fell while I was skateboarding with my laptop in my bag. It continued to work fine until today. In the middle of doing some work, my charger light started blinking (and making a weird intermitent sound) and then my laptop just shut off. Now it doesn't do anything when I try to turn it on (with or without the battery and with or without being plugged in), and the light continues to blink on the charger when it's plugged in. The battery should still have some charge on it.
I'm trying to diagnose the problem so I don't spend a lot of money, so I have a few questions.
1. Would a bad DC jack or fuse prevent the laptop from running off battery?
2. Are there any complete disassembly instructions for this laptop?
Any help or insight would be appreciated! Thanks.
