Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
Do you happen to know how to fix the worn dell power connection? I was going to take out the power connection from the board and have a new one soldered on but if there is an easier way I would prefer that.
I have had to do this a few times. firstly, go to ebay and search "b130 power jack' and buy it. next print or write down the instructions from the service manual fount on the dell website ( they sound intimidating but really its not that bad). when you get to the motherboard de-solder the connection and throw the faulty jack out, resolder a new one in (using lowest wattage possible on the soldering iron) and put all the innards back in. I had never taken a laptop apart nor soldered before and mine worked fine afterward.

Well, if it's just the soldering points that are weaking then you don't need a new one. Just resolder those points (probably won't even take any extra solder but i would recommend giving it a little more so it doesn't just break again) and you should be fine. If the actual jack is damaged then you'll have to replace it. No real ease here, though, as you'll have to take the laptop apart either way.
