Question about Computers & Internet
I have been told by Dell that the mother board needs to be replaced on my Dell INSPIRON 1300 although I have heard that all I need is to have a small soldering job to solve my problem of my laptop not charging.
could this be the case and if so is it possible to DIY this job?
Assuming it's not under warranty or you wouldn't even consider this so here goes..
If it's not charging because of the connector on the motherboard has in some way become defective
which happens quite often. ( I have a Compaq with that very issue on my desk ) You can order
a NEW connector from various places on the internet at a cost of approx. $20-$30. There are also
listings for companies that specialize in that area that I am sure would be less expensive than getting
a whole new board from Dell ( Google search: Dell restoration & repair ) , at a cost between $40 + shipping
and $125 + shipping. Do the research to find reputable sources. ( check reviews ).
Hope this helps..
Oh you CAN do this yourself if your comfortable with board level electronics. Keep in mind you would be
dealing with micro technology ( very small solder points ). This is why I let you know the option of having
someone else do the repair. With that you'd get a warranty on the repair and have it done by someone
experienced in the matter at hand.
