    I have a Dell E1505 laptop that I suspect has a dead motherboard. I don't want to drop ~$200 to purchase a new one without some more confirmation.

    When the system is powered up the three locks LED's light up for about 5 seconds along with the power LED then everything just turns off. The system fan does not turn on and the hard drive does not spin. I have gone through checking the power supply and battery. I get the same problem whether the unit is plugged in or is running off of the battery. When the unit is plugged in the battery charging LED does light up and does not go off. I have reseated the HD and RAM. I have tried other RAM chips in the unit and still the same response. I was having problems finding any information error codes pertaining to this series of LED's. The conclusion I have come to is a bad motherboard. In the past I have seen this problem related to the system doing nothing when turned on.

    Can anyone shed some more light on this issue or at least confirm that they have had similar issues and it was related to a motherboard problem?
