:mad I use my laptop everyday for work and this morning it died on me. It's the power supply :bash so the mother board is done.










But the best part of this is my boss went to the apple store and got a 21.5 iMac :D


It's not bad i have VMware installed to run some vnc so i can connect to clients PC and RDP to connect to our database. but i having fun messing around with it.

wait, the PS like spiked your computer? If there was no power spike or overloading, the computer should be fine.

There was an overload of power and shocked the laptop. It's a laptop so the PS is on the motherboard.
ahh.

your comp has an internal PS??? I figured it would be external.

that looks like its just a jack, not the actual power supply. The actual brick in your power cord is what contains the elements to convert power form 120vAC to whatever your comp. uses, that is essentially the ps on a laptop.

was that with labor, or did you do it yourself? Either way, damn good price.

mobo's take time, thats for sure, and its something you have to be careful you don't mess up. And some models are easier than others, idk how Dell's are, I usually don't work on them.

the screws and what not arent the hard part for me, its trying to route the wires as nicely as they come from the factory thats tough to pull off.

laptops are kinda a pain, just requires dexterity and some care


keep your old motherboard!!

replace the mosfets, swap parts to test it, then sell that bitch on ebay for 150-200 bucks

people will buy it at ridiculous prices on ebay for some dumb reason
