Soo... I left the Portable plugged in, it got warm, now it won't start

Recommended Posts

I was mucking about with the Portable a couple days ago, and then left it plugged in with a M5140 adapter. FYI, it has a shot battery, and it needs to be recapped - parts are on the way.

 

When I came back to it today, it was warm to the touch - not sure if it was radiating out from the battery, but basically the whole logic board was warm. And it wouldn't start after several resets - no response. It flickered once, but nothing since. I've disassembled it to do some quick tests, but I thought I'd pop in here to see if anyone has some insight. I know this thing is sensitive - I'm a little freaked that I may have caused some damage...

Ahhhh that's what I didn't want to hear but feared. I have a battery in the mail, but I'm not expecting anything positive just from that. Either way, a recap is imminent, if that doesn't do anything I'll start looking closer at that +5V line. This forum has some really excellent resources, I gotta say.  What a treasure.
