Ken- I have read your work around the net already so I know you can handle the suggestions I give.

On the DV1000
try the 2 MOSFETS next to the power jacks. I think they are Anachip 4407 or Fairchild 4435
Then check the MAXIM 1999

- When plugging in the DC to the unit, check to see if you are getting a spark. If so you have a dead short across the NEG circuits, and will have to look real close around the DC jack.
Toshiba - No video or blank video
Check Q1 & Q3 near the DC Jack

I could use some tips on the DELL 11xx/51xx series charge circuits if you could...

I want the replacement motherboard part number

The part number you posted on the FixYa site is correct for a replacement board. It is actually designed for the DV1300 series but will work iin many DV1000 series notebooks. If you get on E-Bay and put that part number in the search box, you will find many that are for sale and under 120 bucks. Good luck
