I have a HP Pavillion dv5-1120ev, I know it is old, it was working fine till a few days ago. Then, the internal mouse pad stopped working and I was working with a USB mouse. Today, it is not working at all. The battery is not on the machine, as it died long ago. I am using the power cord and the white power led next to the power port is on, that means the board get ac power. But pressing the power on button does nothing. No power on button led, no fan noise, no nothing, completely dead. I tried to reset it by removing the power cable from the device, pressed the power on button for half a minute but nothing changed. What happened? Should I forget it or not?

Needs a new motherboard and the techs in the Service Center were in grade school when that laptop was made. They will not have parts for it. When a laptop gets this old, you have to DIY. Could likely find you a motherboard for not much money but shipping to Greece would not be cheap.
