    The notebook reveived an impact during work and turned immediately off.

    Pressing the on-switch had no effects afterwards. The LED on the power supply extinguishes when it is connected to the notebook, so I assume a kind of short circuit in the Inspirion. I disassembled the mainboard and all components on it and plugged in the power supply with the same reaction as before.

    Inspection of the mainboard with a magnifying glass showed me no cracks on the PCB or soldering points.

    Can I assume, that at least the mainboared is dead?

    Is there any hope to repair the mainboard?
