but don't forgot to clean your laptop airflow with air duster every month with this you prevent the dust clogging up. blocked airflow lead to owerheating and heat differential is not good especially on lead free compound because the composite of welding material contain silver and aluminium these metals hate each other both has different friction and heat transfer. lead is more efficient but by eu law is not permitted any more. if you want to run fast tasks you should go for pc laptop has modified core voltage is slower than computer and all the high spec numbers are to attract customers to spend money.
So................... 1) Am I to assume someone broke the female connector on the motherboard, that the DC Power Harness used to plug into?
Hard wired in this statement would reflect there was a DC Power Harness, soldered directly to the motherboard?
2) Or is your statement that the DC Power Jack itself, for your model; is soldered directly to the motherboard; and you hard wired the new jack in place; after cutting the plug off of the end of the new DC Power Harness? (And removing defunct DC Power Jack)
Plus; Is this an A205-s5000, or one of the A205-s5000 model series? A205-s5800, A205-s5801, A205-s5803, A205-S5843, etc.
Trying to figure out why this A205, has a DC Power Jack soldered directly to the motherboard, and is not using a DC Power Harness.
Have to make sure you are soldering to the right area, yet alone the correct contact points.
Don't know what I'm talking about? You unsoldered the DC Power Jack FROM the motherboard? Or the jack was soldered to wires, and wired to the motherboard. Hardwired. The term can be used for either scenario. That's the way it was originally?
Let's go on.
The DC Power Jack is connected to the DC to DC power circuit; on the motherboard. (Power/Charging circuit) This circuit is near where the DC Power Jack is mounted, or where the DC Power Harness plugs in.
In the circuit are Surface Mount Devices that are prone to go bad. One is the Power MOSFET's, the second are MLCC's.
(Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor. They, and the P.MOSFET's, are SMD/SMT Surface Mount Device/ Surface Mount Technology)
These series of Notebook PC's use the; Fairchild Semiconductor International - FDS6679 - Power MOSFET, and the, Alpha & Omega Semiconductor Limited - AO4407 - Power MOSFET.
Look at the second photo down, with the AO4407 circled in Yellow. Immediately below it, (Right corner), and immediately to the right of the AO4407; are MLCC's. Smaller rectangular object with a dark wide band in the middle of it.
There is one above the one, to the immediate right of the AO4407; one above it, one to the Right of the top one; and one to the right of it. There are also 4 smaller examples to the bottom/left corner of the AO4407.
Look to see if any are burned/blackened.
Example of availability, and cost of FDS6679, and AO4407,

you got a cheap laptop. maybe from walmart or some other store that was selling it for about $400. It doesn't have a processor that you can switch out. I'm sure it's horribly slow for Visa, so my advise would be to sell it and get something with a dual core.
