I've been trying to fix a Gericom 1st Supersonic PCI E laptop. One of the problems was a dry joint on the connector for the charger. On soldering this, it worked, but "snapped" again, so I soldered it again, but now it seems to be short circuited and I can't sort it out!
Anyway, I've come to the conclusion that a new motherboard for the laptop is needed.
The laptop is really a Quanta KN1, and has been sold as the "Gericom 1st Supersonic PCI E" and the Advent 7098 (Dixons Group).
Firstly I was just wondering whether anyone could advise of any tests I could try out on the board first of all, and if anyone does have this laptop/part and would be willing to sell it could you let me know, as it's fairly urgent!
