    My Compaq Presario 1200XL laptop/notebook won't power up (dead).

    Note: I service TVs, etc. but not computers except my own.

    I checked the power micro switch (AOK). I removed the
    battery, then tried to power it up again the next day without
    installing the battery. Also, I used a bench power supply set
    at 19Vs as a sub for the AC adapter with the same results.
    I checked the 5 amp fuse on the mother board.

    When I press the power button/switch, there is absolutely no sign
    of a response (reason I checked micro switch).

    The only indicator that lights is the one that shows the AC adapter
    is plugged in.

    If I could get my hands on a schematic, that will be a big help.

    Thanks in advance, Brad

    A schematic is probably not possible.
    You should start at the power jack and try to follow the DC voltage to the
    regulators. The DC power jack is ofen damaged.
    Keep in mind the board is probably multi-layered but the main ground and +V
    should be easy to follow between the jack and regulators. If you don't find
    a problem there it is probably not worth the time unless you have LOTS of
    experience with laptop board repairs.
