Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

I have a loose charging pin in my laptop that I need to solder back to the motherboard, is this difficult to do?

Answers :

It's not difficult to do, it's a big connection and not hard to solder. However be careful not to touch the tiny SMD parts around it when you do the soldering, they are very fragile.
