Customer Question
Thank you for being persistent...
Thank you for being persistent. Actually, I had misplaced some of the original e-mail correspondence with you folks. I own a Toshiba Satellite P35-S6053 portable (laptop) computer. The power plug loosens and disconnects. I was told by a local technician that the female receptacle is soldered to the mother board and that the computer would have to be disassembled and repaired with proper parts (for many $). I seem to remember that one of your experts had a photo illustrated guide for this repair. My computer is still waiting . . .. in a box. Can you help?

Greetings, are you able to remove the casing yourself and observe the proper anti-static precautions needed to prevent any additional damage?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
