So I'm (trying) to work on my friends HP DV2000 laptop. First I had to re-solder the power cord together to see the problem he's having. It was arcing at me first tried it, which is how I learned the cable needed work.
Now I have it powering up, but no POST, no beeps, a drive does spin up, but I'm not sure if it's hd or cd. I think it's boned. I've tried removing the battery, the cmos battery, all the ram, and the hd. No effect. Any input?
