If the power-on indicator does not turn on, check the power cord of the ac power adapter for correct continuity and installation. To check the ac power adapter, do the following:
1. Unplug the ac power adapter cable from the computer.
2. Measure the output voltage across the plug of the ac power adapter cable. The correct voltages are shown in the following table
Note: The output voltage across pin 2 might differ from the voltage that you measure.
3. Depending on the voltage that you measure, do one of the following:
If the voltage is not correct, replace the ac power adapter.
If the voltage is acceptable, do the following:
a. Replace the system board.
