Replacing DC-in Board

by istaples9

My Problem

Sometimes laptop wouldn't charge when plugged in.

My Fix

Excellent; it was the first time I've taken apart any components of a computer and the guide was very thorough.

My Advice

If the computer does not turn on after replacing the board, check the keyboard connection tab to the right of the battery connection. (It's hard to push back in, and mine was not fully in the slot after putting my computer back together.)
