Question about Computers & Internet
The male pin for recharging is broke. Do I need to replace the whole motherboard or can it be a relativley easy fix? Or should I just purchase a new laptop?.......Bruce
Unfortunately the computer industry is a little bit better than the automotive industry. I thank God that I am not a automobile mechanic and I have seen some very smart and well accomplished mechanics. The mother board is not made to be repaired for the desktops and more so for the Laptops. Now, you seem to be a reasonable man and my reasonable thinking is that you throw nothing away as long as you can keep them working. How do you know if the next new equipment you buy will not be a lemon. So, you have examined the male pin for recharging, you already have found that the damage is not that much, it will not fall out within some time. We are lucky that the voltage that point is not that much. I would say give another visual and if you are satisfied, fix it and see how much life you can get out of it. Always keep an active back up of the unit, just in case, even though data loss happens when the program is in the RAM memories. Fix it up and be proud of your accomplishment. If there are funds available, figure a time that it would be wise to have a reserve. Run your computer until the battery burns up or the "wheels fall off". May the Lord bless you!
