Question about Acer Computers & Internet
You need to get your cousin to help you before something else gets damaged.
Sounds like the power-in jack has come out but can't be sure. Photos would help. I'm looking for one, just haven't found it yet. If this tech soldered something up for you, he should have repaired it unless he is working for gratitude only. Any half-baked tech can jury-rig a power connection for someone who has physical limitations in a way that it will not be difficult for them.
Go to eBay and research your laptop for two things, first you need a broken one for parts, namely the power jack, second you need a new LCD display. Only the display. Your cousin should be able to change this without much trouble unless he is not handy with small tools. Since your budget is limited, take your time, you will find a bargin if you work at it.
Laptops are tedious to take apart and put back together and there are online forums that will tell you how to do it, as you have access to the internet I don't need to tell you how, just that they are there.
As for the schematics, unless you are trying to modify the electronics, you probably don't really need them and finding them is harder then just replacing the parts with used ones.

Kimberly, you don't need schematics. If you want I will fix your laptop for free. I have the tools, equipment etc. The dc jack is not all that difficult...in your case it sounds like the dc jack is connected to the motherboard via a cable. The end that you see slides into a couple of grooves which hold it in place on the side of the case. The other end uses a small plug and connects to the motherboard. The whole piece can ve ought on Ebay for approx. 30-40 bucks. The screen if bad is not overly hard to replace either. The front bezel piece comes off and it is a matter of unscrewing it from the hinges and frame, and unplugging it from the motherboard cable and the inverter. My website is www.parrotheadpcrepair.com
All I would need you to do is ship the laptop to me and insure it. I will try to give you an estimated time of repair depending on how long it takes me to get the parts. I'll then notify you by email of the tracking number for the shipment back. I am a Firefighter by trade and repair laptops in my off time. It would be my pleasure to help you out. My business cell phone is on the web site. Call me if you need my help. Chip ParrotHead PC Repair
