  3. Any chance you would know where to buy a replacement power jack port located on the back of the laptop? I’ve looked everywhere and cannot find it. Laptop has been a paper weight for a year now because one of the 4 prongs melted off last I used it. plugged it in and it melted the power supply cord and prong due to arc. It still worked on battery life til it ran out of juice. If not, what motherboard would I need to buy to replace this one. tyvm

  4. I am having problems with the cable that connects the monitor with the laptop. The screen flickers and I can move the cable and stop the flickering. It is getting harder to stop it. I think I need to replace the cable or check the connection at the monitor. The connection to the base is accessible but not the connection to the monitor. I can’t find anything on the internet explaining how to access that connection (it could be hard wired, don’t know since I can’t see it) or where to find a replacement cable.
