I tried selling this before when it was working 100%. Recently, when I plug in the charger to charge the battery and to use the laptop, the computer will not charge. The battery is good, its just when I plug in the charger the computer says the charger is not plugged in. I also took out the battery and plugged it in and it would not turn on, but when I put the battery in, it will turn on, because the battery is still charged up to 30%. I thought it was the charger, and tried a different one from a friend with the same computer and still the same problem. I brought it to a shop, and they said it is the motherboard. If you know how to replace a motherboard in laptops, this is a steal for you. I want to get a smaller laptop for when I go away to college in 2 weeks. I tried selling before for $750 but now I am trying to get $300 obo. If you want it, let me know, here is a link for pics, and the old thread.

just a little FYI for you most of the time when laptops have a charging problem it just needs some soder work done to the connector on the board and you don't need a whole new board its like 2 hours of labor (which at my shop the bill would be $120) Just figured I would let you know and maybe it will help you sell this

Well, I just took the laptop apart to check out the motherboard. Right after I did that, I noticed all the replied and PM's I have. I am just going to have it fixed because it is a expensive laptop, and will sell it after I get it fixed. I will make a new post for it later after it gets fixed.
