My laptop broke down. I wrote a short entry about how I went to fixing it.

:bookmark: life, opinion :clock7: :clock3: about 2 minutes

For about a month or so, my laptop was out of working order due to an issue with the DC jack. That’s the part of the laptop’s motherboard that takes power from your laptop charger cable to your battery, thus keeping your laptop up and running. I decided to take the cheapest and more educational route. I own a [ASUS K53E-BBR27 laptop][], so I ordered a replacement board. I learned quite a few things about laptops and their internals when I replaced the board.

There’s one thing for certain, this entire process of having to service my laptop by hand has further deepen my want to get more into hobby engineering, especially since it’s become very “noob” friendly in recent days. This will be most likely how I spend a considerable amount of my time in the summer; working on PCBs and understanding how to reprogram them to follow a will.
