Greetings !! I have an HP Omnibook 2100 which one day just gave up. The symptom is; Will do nothing while on battery. When plugged on AC, the plug sign appears but when you push the power on button nothing happens. All the while it smells burned chips. I took the laptop apart (can't harm the broken, I thought) and I found one blown chip right after the DC IN plug. The chip is Fairchild NDS8435A a field effect SMD transistor allowing a current flow of 8 Amperes (!!!!!!). Now before I start looking for this chip pretending to be a hardware developer needing 10 chips for testing purposes (FYI minimum order amount is 1000 chips) I ask if anyone experienced the same problem and what he did do or find out about it.
Please respond to me at address "gousanis at mail point com". This is to avoid spamming !!
