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?
Is this a good question?
