Charging Port Not Responsive At Times. Time is of essence. Please help
How do I replace the charging port? I was given 2 options: Pay $500 for a replaced motheboard or buy a new laptop. Laptop is in perfect health and the battery is just fine. I have an I.T. background, but don’t know how to fix this.
P.S. Time is of the essence! Please help!
Update: My hunch was correct.
(This S.O.B. is finally out!)
The port had gone bad. I am still not sure if it was the connectors, the wires, or both. Thank you @nick for all the help. I REALLY appreciate it.
If anyone has a similar issue, try this first. It will save you several hundred dollars.
Also, the guide on the website did not cover the fact that you may have to remove the heatsink so you can remove the screen and motherboard like I did.
