Having problems with your Samsung X15 Notebook ?

How to fix short circuit on Samsung X20 laptop?

\015 Recently had issues with power supply cord and shorted the mainboard so no power is working, yet the battery still runs the computer. Pull the laptop apart and replaced the power jack and got a new power supply. Still no luck. Could someone with Tech experience please guide me to what I need to fix on the board? Is it the LED or a diode the is faulty?? Someone please help? Just upgraded the laptop with new mem and a bigger hard drive!\015
