Hey,

My laptop has not been taking any power from the AC adaptor, and therefore will not turn on. It has a smell of electrical burning when the AC adapter is connected. I sent it to a repair shop who told me they have resoldered the DC jack but this has not fixed the problem. They reckon that the problem is a fault in a power connector card that connects from the DC jack (presumably to the mainboard via a cable?).

My question is, does anyone have any information about these connector components? The repair technician says he can't find a replacement component and has recommended buying a second hand laptop of the same model to take the component from (sounds too expensive for me). He also mentioned that the card is around 2 inches square, and had 3 USB sockets(?) on it.

Any information on this component, or where I can find a replacement would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Hi, Have you have any luck with this part? I too am after the same board, but cannot source anywhere...

Thanks.

Hey, I got the part from http://uk.eetnordic.com/product.aspx?id=7414550000&path=Packard-Bell-DC-Transboard-DRAGON. You will need to find the appropriate part for your own laptop, the linked one above is for an EasyNote SW51.

Thanks for replying so quick. That's the part! Did you really pay £99.00 + vat for it? I think your option for a cheap second-hand laptop is looking good!!

Cheers.
