hi, i got my Pin broken few months ago, replaced and for like 2 weeks ago it got burned from the inside.

Motherbooard do not charge, and if i try to put a new AC pin it Keeps burning the motherboard.

Now i was thinking if it's possible to rewire from the battery connections?

the computer works fine whit battery, the idea is to put charger in on the battery pins, but there like 10 pins and cant find any schematic for the moterboard

I just made this for you borrowing decent mb pics from ebay.

Test to make sure the board isn't shorted out first. Test with a multimeter to see if you have a connection between the ground and the positive pads. IF you do then you can not repair this as is, you will have to remove more of the board to prevent a short.

Once the short is removed you can solder red to red and green to green. The power pin will have to be modified, if I were you I would use a solid copper wire for the power connection and insulate it with hot glue.

Hope this makes sense to you, if it doesn't then go seek professional repair services.

you get the idea, i had a connector pin to solder onto cables but i cba, i put cables directly to the charger.

seems that Battery stopped charging , but in the end, laptop works fine whit charger.

Cost me 200eu second hand buy, worth to get some nasty fixes haha :)
