Laptop failed (could be cold related)
Ok guys, I have a lot of components in my carpc. Everything has been working flawless I think the coldest I have seen is about -6 Celsius and everything ran beautiful. Until yesterday I get in the car and its -14 Celsius which is 6.8 F for the Americans. I am located in Toronto, Ontario. This is the coldest I have seen this year. The carpc did not boot right away so I disabled my Carnetix with a switch. After about 20min of driving I got to my destination and tried to boot by starting up the Carnetix again. Everything ran fine. I assume it had time to warm up. Now today was maybe -10 Celsius when I started the car and it did not boot. Tried many times and nothing. I can see that the Carnetix is booting up and working as it should. So right now I have everything pulled out of the car. Didn't take long. I plugged in the laptop with an AC charger and the laptop is showing the charging indicator. It will run with or without battery by the way. But if I press the power switch on the laptop there is zero response. No fans, lights or beeps, nothing. So far all i have done is pulled off parts of the laptop to physically press the power switch on the motherboard to make sure I am actually pressing it. Right now I have zero clue where to begin with this. I know I need to let it warm up to room temperature so I was thinking wait until tomorrow to play around with it. But does anyone have any ideas. It ran beautiful before hand. I've never had any type of issue like this. It's my first winter for a carpc. Laptop is an Acer Aspire 5050. It's a bit older. Any ideas? I know a few people here might remember me. Thanks guys.
