    I have a HP Mini 210 - 1030NR which won't turn on. There is no lights anywhere. Nothing happens when i press the power button.


    I took out the hard drive and it works on my desktop. I took out the ram and tried to boot it up but nothing.

    I am assuming it's probably a dead motherboard.



    How can i test to see if the motherboard using a multi-meter?


    I thought it was where you plug in the power adapter but I already tested some parts and i got 19V there, so i know it's not that.

    I also tested where the battery is charged and it got .049v, so i know its working


    But i tested the little white connector where the heatsink fan is going, but i didn't get any volts there, isnt there supposed to be some volts there?





    I'm not sure whats wrong, anyone have any experience with power?
    I'm not sure where else to test, im not an electricity expert

    hi, welcome to EP :)

    sounds good

    0.049V is next to nothing so I would disagree with your working assessment


    other than the main power rails, nothing much else

    thank you,


    sorry i made a typo, i meant 0.49v




    so there is no way to know where exactly it is broken?

    update!

    I ordered a new motherboard from ebay and i finally got around to installing it,

    it is working perfect! It seems it was a dead motherboard

    too bad, i am unable to find out what's wrong with the old mother and if it even fixable

    i wish i could fix it myself, im sure it is just a chip or something, seem like a waste to throw it out,

    im sure there is someone around the world who could easily fix it and re-sell it,


    anyways! it was a motherboard,

    this is the last time i buy a computer without testing it first! but it was fun learning
