Would I need a new motherboard for my laptop if my power supply connection is lose?

by on December 24, 2011

Q: My Compaq Presario CQ61 power jack was loose. There were no other problems other than getting the battery to charge because of the loose power jack. I took it in to a local shop for repairs. They’ve had my computer for 11 days, and now they are telling me I need a new motherboard. Am I getting ripped off?

    Without seeing the computer myself or knowing the shop, it’s hard to make that judgement call.

    I’d suggest talking to them in person, and get a full explanation of the problem. Trust your instincts and don’t be afraid to get a second opinion from another shop.
