well i have a friend who gave me her buste dlaptop and said if i cant fix it then i might as well just throw it away, well being the computer nerd i am i though, yeah right, like i'd do that.
her dog chewed up the power cable and her bf, being the tech savvy man he is though that splicing wires and sticking them in random places would fix it. long story short, he ended up making some black smoke and popping noises come from the laptop, lol.
well i did open the thing up to the point that i had a pretty clear look at the motherboard and i couldn't find any visible damage, which i thought was really weird. I told her i couldn't fix it and she said throw it out so i've officially inherited it, but i wanted to run it by you guys as to what you thought might be damaged. I couldn't find where the power was regulated, i gotta think thats where the damage was.
but either way i have some good plans for it that i cant reveal just yet.
