Hey everyone, Nice forum. First time here but more than likely will not be the last... all so knowledgeable. Its fascinating. Anyhow not to bore you with hi how are ya's and such I have a slight problem and could not find anyone up here that works on Mac's. To me this was actually a good sign. I haev this nice 12 inch ibook. One day it took a spill. The result was that the power addapter (at the computer - not the wall outlet) seemed to have gotten mangled a bit. Over time it just would not work anylonger - having to plug it in and actually hold it in place just right to make a connect. I just would like to replace this internal jack... is such a thng even really possible? Another fella here in town told me this jack is connected to the motherboard in such a way that it really cannot be replaced and that I need a new motherboard.... YIKES dam... well you kow the feeling. So... question is rather obvious now... I have never opened the back or this (ibook) yet... is the motherboard attacted to this and is it probably cracked or something? Well... sorry to take up more productive space on this board but as I say I could not find an answer or thread regarding. If you have seen a thread please direct me and if not perhaps one of you knows the answer or can get me closer to one. I miss that cute litle ibook face. Thanks much!!
