My relative spilled some tea on his laptop. Unfortunately, the darn thing won't accept the AC Adapter. It will turn white, than orange.. and just sit there without actually charging or powering anything.

It says it's there, but it's not. It won't charge and when you remove the battery while it's running, it looses power.

I opened it up and found that area was rather corroded. I cleaned the area with 91% alcohol, but the damage was already done and the only fix I can find is replacing the motherboard. The entire system runs perfectly fine except that darn area.

Is there a way to bypass the charging circuit and deliver the proper voltage directly via the battery connector? or.. is there a way to modify the battery so it'll charge from an external source?

He doesn't really care as long as I can get his laptop working again without spending the cost of the laptop to fix it. I was thinking a battery pack that connected normally that has an external connector for a charger.
