MSI GX730-043US Gaming Laptop Problem

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I took my laptop in for a diagnosis and the guy told me it would cost around 150$ to repair. He said the problem was with the charger port.

Is there anywhere online to buy a replacement port, and do the repair myself?

Thanks guys!
:P

You could probably find what's needed on fleabay for a great deal cheaper. Sorry, in my haste I thought I hit the 'send' button last time. redface.gif

Yeah, I believe I found it on ebay for 7$ http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-POWER-JACK-CHARGE-PORT-MSI-Notebook-MSI-GX730-Part-MS41225-SOCKET-CONNECTOR-/271259375774

But I don't know how to replace my supposedly broken piece with a new one

It requires dismantling the machine and removing the motherboard before replacing the one component, but it's a LOT cheaper than dropping $150 for some shmuck to work on it. Dismantling the machine is pretty easy too. tongue.gif The folks at the notebookreview forums could walk you through it better than I could... redface.gif
