My laptop isn't working!
I was bored recently, so I was looking through the "black hole" of my stuff under my bed & closet and found the remnants of my old laptop with a disk controller fail; the Disk drive and HDD. It was in pieces, but the motherboard is still intact and case is still in one piece. So, as project, I thought "Why not put it back together and try to get it to work?". I put it back together and re-assembled the puzzle of pieces into the laptop case it was once in. Plugged it into my power cord, and hey, a light! Things were looking good, so I pressed the power button, but no luck. It seemed to be completely dead. Though, I did hear a soft "ticking" sound being emitted from the motherboard. Possibly, there's still some light left in this! But, I can't get any farther apart from this.
There's currently no HDD for it, and the disk drive is disconnected.
Intel Pentium P6100 @ 2.00 GHz
No disk drive
8 GB of DDR3 RAM
The screen won't even turn on or light up. I really want to save this laptop as it's my first ever laptop.
Any suggestions / help is very much appreciated!
