I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 with an AMD Graphics card and it has the common problem of a broken DC jack. Works sometimes and sometimes it doesnt.
Where can I find out the part number for the power board without having to open up the laptop as I dont have to hand? I have checked on ebay for replacements and there seems to be more than one option with part numbers.
Also do Dell still sell these spare parts? The other option would be to desolder and solder on a new power port to the board
Thanks in advanced
Well the problem with the DC jack is that it's loose/broken so the laptop doesn't always charge. You have to move the power cable around in the jack for it to work sometimes. Apparently it's a common problem with this model.
I am located in the United Kingdom
