advent 6521 / gericom webgine n340s8

By ade.wells ·
i removed the heatsink/fan to change the cmos battery but having re-assembled it there is no power at switch on. The power lights flash green briefly but do not stay on and do not power up. I think the cmos battery is ok but would appreciate if anyone has met this before. any suggestions would be much appreciated if anyone has the time.

Please state correctly what you have taken off.

It sounds like you have taken off the power supply cables and have not replaced them properly. When you have checked and re-checked everything, I:E, taken off and replaced them carefully then power back up again. Oh by the way have you applied a small amount of thermal paste to the processor?. :)

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
If this information is useful, please mark as helpful. Thanks.

fitting new CMOS

I have just replaced the CMOS on this model and now have the same issue of power on and straight off.

Did you resolve the issue with your laptop?
