Soldering Laptop Power Connectors
My GF laptop has a wonky power connector, I've seen this loads of times in school due to leaving the thing lying about but now we have to pay for it ourselves I can't afford to get it fixed.
I know on some laptops you can desolder the adapter on the MB and replace it but I've never done it and wondered if anyone else have tried it.
I am sure CPC or some other component site will sell the component if I strip the laptop down.
Its a Compaq Presario R3000 by the way.
