Is there a pinout description for the DC power jack?

I have a board for an HP G50 model laptop. It only came with the board, processor, heatsink and fan assembly. I am trying to make a custom computer with it, but cannot power it without the DC jack. I know I can get one on eBay, but I think modding it with a permanent power supply to the board would be much more fun. Does anyone know the pinout diagram for the power connection on this board? There are 6 terminals. A picture of the jack shows 3 red, 2 black, and 1 yellow wire. Any help is appreciated.

Edit: Another option is a way to figure out which pins would be the power pins by looking at the pcb pathways leading from the connectors. Any idea there?

Would it not be feasable that you purchase the wire that comes of the connector on the motherboard and has the proper end for the charger? This way you could get the adapter that is appropriate for the G50 and plug it in and check the wiring. lots of them on eBay You could of course continue with a custom enclosure since the wire will give you the option to place the power connector wherever you need to. Just my thoughts on this....:-) good luck

Yeah, that's probably what I'll do. That way I won't run the risk of frying the board by making a bad connection. Thanks!


thank you for accepting my answer. Hope you get it accomplished and post a pic of your custom setup when done, always nice to see some mods...:-)
