Good place to find used parts for a DELL Inspiron 5100

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Earlier today, I connected the ac adaptor to my computer and a pop from inside the system. When I pulled up the bios it was only recognizing the ac adaptor as 50 Volts (I tried more than one adapter with the same results) and it will not charge the battery at all.

I am going to try to locate the component on the system board( I can smell it), and attempt to replace it. But if I am not successful can someone reccomend me a good place to find a used system board to replace mine with.

I checked ebay and the prices are semi-high, and I would like to look elsewhere before I spend 130-180 dollars on a system that is only worth $300 or so.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you guys(and maybe gals) can get pointed in the right direction.
