The motherboard or main board is the is the large circuit board inside the machine that everything attaches to. You will have to completely disassemble the machine. Don't let this frighten you, just go slow and keep everything in order. If you do it yourself and it works, great, if not, then take it to a shop. I came across this Quote recently, don't know who said it, but I think it's perfect. "Keep in mind that amateurs built the Ark, but professionals built the Titanic, don;t be afraid to try" Here's a link to download a service guide for the 600x. It has diagrams to give you a better idea of what you're doing.

The computer does not charge the battery

I take it that you are trying to charge an external battery ( phone or i pad device using the usb port of the computer
is that correct ?
if so you may have to set up the comport for that device but usb uses 2 wires of the usb for power which will charge the device and 2 wires for data transmission
more information may be found if you go google and type in---charging external batteries using the usb computer port

motherboards may or may not charge the cmos battery charge depending on how old the mother board is and the battery in use
for better explanation on this go google and type in---do motherboards charge the bios battery--- and there are pages that explain about the make of the cmos battery and how newer motherboards do not charge the battery

How would you repair the recharging jack in the acer 3680 with a battery (Lion 11.1v 4400 mAh) Can you just buy the jack within the computer or is it attached to the mother board directly and you have to...

The jacks are soldered on the motherboard.
You can buy one if yours is actually broken and solder it on the motherboard yourself. You can also just re-solder the jack on the motherboard if it is otherwise functional (that is, not physically broken).

You have to be really careful, as you are applying heat to a very sensitive piece of electronics.

And yes, I have done this myself.

What kind of mother boards that have graphic card in them fits dell inspiron 1545?

Dell used proprietary motherboards for this model so unless you are comfortable doing major modifications you would need to contact them to see if they have upgrade motherboards for your computer. Sorry. Hope this helps.

My lap top computer (Dell) . The hookup to the electricity is broken off . The little prong that sticks out for you to hook up to is broken off inside the computer on the mother board

This will require attention from a technician that can disassemble your notebook and replace the power connector. Contact Dell or a reputable local computer repair shop. Most likely, you will receive faster and more affordable service from the local shop.

Hope this helps.

If the port is suffering from a bad connection, you have to re solder it to the motherboard. I recomend you take it to a shop unless your an expirenced computer tech. Or you could replace the motherboard, but if your gonna do that, you are better off buying a new computer. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Need a motherboard for Toshiba Satellite A105-S4004

A105 motherboards are available on EBay

At least one of those looked like an entire bottom plastic assembly.

Unless you are pretty computer savvy, you'll want a computer pro to replace teh motherboard.
