    G74S will not charge and will not turn on while battery is disconnected

    The machine will turn on while plugged in and with battery. Though only for a moment. Usually not enough time to log into windows 7. After being off and plugged in for a while the battery light blinks.

    I tore it all apart and plugged it in to test the soldered leads of the DC jack, they read a consistent 19.3 volts which is fine. So I don't think its the DC jack or the power pack and I doubt the battery as the machine doesn't boot while just being plugged in without battery.

    Does this point to some fried circuitry? I'm looking for advice and suggestions on things to try. Its way past warranty. I think cause its only 2 year warranty right?
