Please help - used the wrong charger on my laptop :-(
I'm a newbie to PC's, please advise:
Can anyone help please? I accidentally used the wrong power charger for my Compaq M700 laptop and now it will not switch on, even with the correct charger, and no lights saying charging. Is there any way I can fix this myself? what have I blown?
thanks in advance - hope someone can help

Welcome to TechIMO!
Well, you have obviously fried something inside and there is no way I see that you can fix this yourself.
Sorry to say but it's going to have to be serviced.

I suppose you could try pulling the battery and A/C power, let it sit a bit, hold the power button down to try to discharge power still in the sytem... also try it on A/C power with the battery removed.
But ya, it seems you have done irreperable damage to the power system if it wont power on at all.

Is it a costly thing to repair do you think?

Not if you tell them what happened.
I would just say "it quit".“Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”

Usually you have to pay extra for accidental damage coverage. Do you still have the warranty certificate?My other car is a T-34.

M700 is most likely out of warranty. Discontinued for at least 2-3 years.My computer is bigger than yours!
