Now I love this lappie, but let me tell you whats wrong.

-Don't have enough memory
-Keyboard got broken by yours truly
-Thinks too much, therefore is always running processes in the background.
I wouldn't mind this, but the fan also sucks, therefore I have a permanent red
burn on my right hand from the HOT fan exhaust
-Won't charge unless its rigged up by yours truly [I think the connector thingy is broken. From what I have deducted, when you look inside the plug that you put into the computer, the [male?] part wiggles alot, and won't recognize the other [female?-charger cord] part.
-Mouse touchpad is broken too


OK. Done. Allright, so your probably wondering, wth?
Why is she telling me all this.
This is why.
Will it be cheaper to fix it myself....
I.E.> buying all the parts I need + installing them ...
Or just buy a new damn Laptop?

Help in this matter will be loved.. Maybe I just need to get the BFH. and put it out of its misery.
-Justesse

simple, give it to me...

Keyboard would be hell to replace, as would the power connector.
I don't know about the power connector, but the keyboard is really easy to replace (no idea the cost). Its just connected via a ribbon that is put on the board, a friend of mine's Avaratech had a hard drive crash and I took it apart and upgraded the RAM for him (stupid RAM is under the keyboard instead of a back panel like my hp's)

The anwer for DC male part is to weld. It's probably desoldered. I had the same problem on a floppy drive. If you're precise, you could resolder the metal together. The mouse pad though...check for loose connections. If that didn't do...good luck trying to find one, unless Dman has some.

Snerp-> Just to get online? Did you read what all is wrong with it? at the least half the freakin' keys don't work.

Everyone else-> I know how to fix it, its just that the parts are gonna run me around 360ish If I get a good deal. I think I should just buy a new one.
