1318 inspiron duo core/identify circuit board-fix or replace?"
A damaged circuit board, runaway dremel, gouged board,5 contacts exposed, inlaid circuitry gone, unable to see circuitry path to exposed pins to attempt some sort of repair. A schematic of circuit board circuitry would be needed IF such a repair would or should even be a consideration. If not, I still need to identify the board to replace it

I would contact Dell if it's still under warranty. If not, their out of warranty repair services are usually fairly reasonable, as are local repair shops. Unfortunately, there's not usually a quick-fix for this.
The only people who have the hinge is Dell themselves. I've checked all over. The only parts available are the Center Console Cover & The Back Cover. If the hinge itself is broken, then you will have to send it to DELL. They'll tell you that the whole screen needs to be fixed- just to hike up the price of repair. If you want, you can buy the back cover, which for the most part, will cover the exposed wires on the hinge, but the front of the hinge will still be exposed. What I would love to find is a metal hinge for the DELL Inspiron 1318, like that found in the Dell Studio XPS version. The plastic hinges only guarantee that we will remain loyal customers. Sorry if this didn't help much.
I had a battery issue with a brand new Inspiron 1525 today. The battery indicator
said that the battery was at 87% the adapter was connected but it was not
charging. I had shut down the laptop, remove the
battery and adapter, then hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds. Fixed!
if you still get the problem then you will have to replace the battery.
