Is There A Local Laptop Repair Place That Can...
repair a dc-jack on the motherboard of a hp zd7000? it's a common problem where the dc-jack, where the power cord plugs in, either becomes loose or burns through causing a short. the computer works great with the battery, but i can't charge the battery because of the dc jack issue. anyway, i'd like to get it repaired, but the only people that i can find that will repair it are out of state, and i'd rather not ship it off somewhere...i'm a lot more comfortable dealing with someone local. anyway, if you know someone that can do this, let me know. i took it to a local shop a while back and they said that the only thing that they could do was replace the motherboard, which is in the $400 range...i've now located some motherboards in the $200 range, which i might just do, but i'd rather just get it repaired if someone local can do it. it looks like the common charge for this service (without shipping back and forth) is in the $100 range.
