So after about a year and a half of non-stop abuse, my faithful laptop seems to be starting to show sings of giving up the ghost. Basically whats happened is the AC input has become faulty as fuck, and only recognizes the charger when I apply pressure at an angle. Would soldering it back on to the board fix it ? It's a toss up between me doing that or forking out like 90 bucks for a 12 cell battery with AC input. I can't seem to find any info on how to open the fucker either. It's a HP DV5T if it matters.
Cheers in advance.
