ok guys. i fix computers/phones for my friends. You know, i'm the local "tech geek" amongst my peers. Now, i was looking into a fault dv7 Ac plug in (it's common apparently) and upon taking off the speakers/mm controls, i guessed i pulled a bit too hard and POP, the connection to the mobo came off as well.
Now, can i fix this? or will i need to get a whole new motherboard?
I want to tell him, but i dont want him to get all pissed blah blah, he will still have sound, just not speakers. Further investigation has revealed this laptop is PLAGUED with problems. Usually hdd, then screen, AC plug in, then finally bad motherboards. Now, i could play it off and say "oh, well it seems like your faulty AC connection fried your motherboard and blah blah" but i'm not that kind of person and to be honest i feel really, bad. I know my way around a soldering gun, so can i just resolder this back on?
if not, what do you guys recommend?
