Hi,

Yesterday my laptop won't boot and there was no battery indication even if I plugged in my A/C adapter, even with my
normale battery (charged, i think). It wouldn't boot, does someone know how I can fix this?
I heard it could be fixed with an power board but I really don't know how it looks like from this laptop.
Thanks in advance!

Sky,
Standard trouble shooting is to check that you are getting power from your adapter first. This is because the unit will still operate off battery until drained if the power brick goes bad.
Next check that the memory is seated properly and in good working order. Re-seat memory and check one at a time in the slots.
Check that the Hard drive is seated properly. I have had units act this way when the Hard drive wasn't seated.
These are things you can check and may save you a trip to the computer shop. If you can't get the unit working and aren't handy with tools, A trip to the computer shop will save you time and money in the long run.

Hi thx for your reply but I have already been re-seated the memory and harddisk, on the a/c adapter there is a green light so I think that it my laptop is getting power of it.
But getting it fixed to the computer shop would cost me more money doesn't it? if the motherboard is broken?

If it is on the power adapter,that doesn't mean the power is getting to the laptop. There could be a broken wire in the cable going to the laptop or a bad connector on the laptop itself.
To prove my point, disconnect the adapter from the laptop and the green light will stay lit as long as you have AC power applied to it.
If the problem is the mother board it may be replaced or repaired if it is the connector. It then becomes is it worth repairing or would you be better off replacing it. Which is a personal choice.
