It is a $10.00 part, but the computer repair folks (pick a company, any company) want to replace the entire motherboard — to the tune of three to five hundred dollars. Don’t know when I’ll be up again. I am currently stealing computer time whenever I get near an idle PC.
In the meantime, if anybody knows how to solder a power jack onto t a motherboard, I’d be interested in chatting with you about it.
I set my photo blog to auto upload for the rest of the week, so you can at least enjoy my pictures.
