I am an IT tech by day and I wish to offer my services in a limited
way to all who pass this way for free.

My way of returning something to the forums.

It may not be instant help but be patient.. I will get
back to you.

Well, maybe a bit of help...

Have you ever DE-soldered a power jack from a lappy mainboard to do a replacement?

Any tips?

Thanks in advance.

Cool! You know what you should do? You should put a link to this thread in your signature like I did for my Tarot Reading thread (which I have been slacking on).

Offering free computer help is very cool.

Cool idea and thanks for the help to everyone.

Whats your professional opinion on :


Galaxy Note 10.1

For what I want to use this for, I'd have to also purchase a USB to HDMI converter,
bluetooth keyboard.

I'm also looking at these :

HP Envy x2

or

HP Slatebook x2

I'll take this one.

De-soldering can be done in several ways.

1. obtain a "solder sucker" solder sucker example. Use it per instructions.

2. obtain "solder wick" solder wick example. Use it per instructions.

3. Use my method. detailed below.

I like to buy as little as possible, so I make my own de-soldering wick. I use 14 gauge multi strand wire, about a foot or so, completely stripped. It should be clean and shiny.

Flux it up good, heat up your iron, clean it, flux it, then heat the soldered joint you wish to de-solder. Once the solder melts apply the wire, much of the solder will run to the iron and the wire. Repeat a time or two. Your jack will soon come loose. Take care to not overheat the board, patience is key here.

solder in your new one, good to go.

solder, soldering iron, wire, flux, Radio Shack has it all.

There might be some problems desoldering .. due to led free solder being used on most modern components.
If you encounter this ie solder wont melt to remove failed component.. then you might have to use micro drills to remove the item.

Can be purchased in most elctronic stores as well as a hand tool to rotate them.. be careful though.

A jewelers lense and a mechanisom for holding it over the electronic parts is invaluable too.

You shoudn't need to do any wire crosing or otherwise mess with the invertor or data cable
Just hook up a vga cable to your monitor and look for the F key that enables the transfer to external monitor.

Usually Function and F4

I have only used the default Windows App and found it to be at least comparible or better
than my error rate in typing! Just fix the errors with "Spell Checker"
The program learns as you use it.

here is a link to Microsoft about the the App!
