unplugged elect cord of phone from voltage surge protection,computer went off but light stayed on. I've been told it was my mother board, This machine has stuff I need and I would like very much to fix it. Does anyone know where I can get this done?
A local computer repair shop is the best bet, but for a computer that old, it will probably cost more than it is worth. Best option is to salvage the data from the hard drive onto a working PC. Easiest way to do that is to remove the hard drive from the old Pavilion A6400 and connect it to a working PC. If it is just to retrieve the data, an adapter similar to this will work nicely
