Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

I need to change the power jack at the back of my medion mim2120. can anyone guide me through the process please and are the sockets available on ebay suitable, I've seen them as low as £3.50 including post and packing.


Answers :

Hi,
Yes you can get the adapters from eBay but make sure when you search for one you search by your laptop model to make sure you purchase the correct one.
Now i don't know what make or model your laptop is so guiding you through the process will be difficult but it's basically the same.
You will need to disassemble the laptop to get to the motherboard and remove it so you can start work, this can be difficult to do and many people end up with screws left over and don't know where they go, a good idea is to draw a life sized sketch (basically draw round the laptop twice on paper) to map out where you took certain screws from and where the major components go.
Once you have the motherboard out you can de-solder the old adapter and solder in the new one.
NOTE: there are delicate ribbon cables underneath the keyboard and possibly in other locations so take care when you are disassembling the laptop.
If you need anymore help post back.


Good luck.
