One of two back from the dead

본문:

I have 2 of these. One nice, clean one (case like new, but low spec) bought very cheap last year, to replace the other I have had for years, and looks like it just got back from Afghanistan. I was changing around the memory, keyboard, HD, optical drive. When I finished, both worked fine. 

Then I left for 3 months, came back & they were both dead. Really dead. Nothing. Reset button pushed, battery only, adapter only. Nothing. No electrical click or crackles, no response of any kind. Fried logic boards, I decided. Static while changing memory, etc.

3 months later I come back again. One (the Afghan vet with all the bum kit that came with the new guy) suddenly fires up like magic when I press the start button. The new guy with the good stuff remains dead. 

What happened? Can I get the new guy to emulate the vet? Or will I have to swap the good stuff back into the Afghan, and look like a hippy again?
