Its not a spares or a major issue. After checking the board it was because the conencter is loose, nothing more. It works fine, just needs a new power connecter fitted in.

if you take it to a laptop repair centre they will charge at least £250 to fix it, if you can get the part and the boards not damaged it will cost more in time than money, personaly i think your better selling parts, but its your choice.

on ebay you would be lucky to get £60, i buy faulty laptops from ebay all the time to fix them, i got a 2 month old packard bell dual core for £100 and took 1hour to fix and it had no missing parts.

The power cable must of been twisted around a bit too much and it started to over heart.
Defective power cable!

Depending on what connection the HDD is, I'll take the HDD off your hands mate, providing its working, and has no bad sectors on it...

Is it Sata, or IDE...?
