Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop
The charger pin has broken off and sits inside the external charger, my computer no longer charges, i've been informed to repair this it will have to have something done to the motherboard and i've been quoted £99. is this reasonable?
what would be the steps to doing this myself at home?
would i need to purchase a new pin/whole part/motherboard?
really need your help!!!
What you have been told is correct. The charger adapter is an integral / integrated part of the mother borad.. This is something that can not be reasonably fixed / repaired, only replaced, unless you had access to the manufacturers parts suppliers. You might contact the manufacturer, and price out their repair costs. Also, you may find some hobbyist that could cobble togeather a fix to solder wires, and provide a way to get it to charge, but it would not be as convenient as the OEM Design.. I would use the manufacturers quote on repair / replacement as a pricing guide..
Sometimes you can find used laptops on eBay or similar that would be less than the repair costs.
