Hi all, I have a Dell Latitude Cpx - about 5 or 6 years old and it has
suddenly died on me.
There are no lights lit on the laptop when I plug in the charger and the
battery is flat and won't charge, The charger is working ok.
I am thinking that the motherboard is kaput and will need changing but I
could well be wrong - does anyone have any idea what else could be wrong
with it ?

Many thanks for any input,
