I know this is a bit of a long shot, but please bear with me. My Fujitsu Siemens S7010 notebook no longer powers up.
Presently, when I plug in the AC adapter, an AC icon briefly appears in the LED display, then disappears after about 1 second. The same goes for plugging in the battery: a full battery indicator lights up for 1 second, then everything is dead again. No display, no fan; pressing the power button has absolutely zero effect, except if I immediately hit the power button after the indicator disappears. In this case, the AC indicator lights up for a fraction of a second, only to disappear for good.
The machine has been having increasing difficulties getting started over the past week or so. I backed everything up because I was worried the PSU was giving out, and sure enough, that day has arrived. After disassembling it, however, I couldn't find any broken solder joints or burnt out capacitors.
I've tried removing and reinserting the HDD and DDR banks; no dice. Also detatching all devices has no effect.
Is there any hope for this machine?
