Hi,

My only thought now is that possibly the DC-In connector may be faulty or that it is a motherboard fault.

Visually inspect the DC-In port to check for any damage etc. using a strong light and a magnifying glass.

If it is damaged then fortunately it is easy to replace as it is a connector attached to a cable which plugs into the motherboard. This is just an example of what it looks like. There are also videos available on YouTube which show how to replace it in your laptop.

If it looks OK then unfortunately there most probably is a problem with the motherboard.

Well, the solution of Mr Jayeff worked for me. Now it is initialising correctly. I only hope that my motherboard doesn't have any issues as Mr Jayeff refers to.

Thanks a lot.
