    I had a laptop given too me and the power jack is gone ... So upon disassembling the Laptop i find that the solder spots are gone and the mobo is chewed up. Can this be fixed or can i solder wires to other spots to make the laptop charge and or operate? :confused: Asus G53SW laptop mobo rev 2.0

    The power socket will have to held in place even without the pins being soldered to the mobo. Then you can use 2 wires to connect the pins to the correct tracks on the mobo. Any other damaged tracks will have to be fixed too.

    Can you post a picture of the 'chewed up' part of the mobo ?
