A good tech can fix that without replacing the motherboard.

But it will have to be one that you see with a solder iron and does this all the time. Try ikenfixit.com and notefix.com if you don't have local super techs.

Easy fix for some tech
by Willy / August 14, 2006 11:37 PM PDT

Robert's right usually a savy tech can fix the outlet by soldering some "pigtail" connection to replace the orginal. The pigtail is needed as in most cases the small portion the orginal componets(wires) were attached to are found on a "broken mtrbd.". Direct rewiring and some gel works fine. You may have an ugly duckling of sorts but compared to factory(or laptop center) repair depot a whole lot less in repair costs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
