Hey guy's im Johnay, J or jandles. Im big gamer and very interested in the community and also big computer hardware man and aren't afraid to get my hands dirty =P

Currently trying fix broken dc power jack on Asus a2500, an attempt to solder it back on was attempted unsuccesfully by a colouge. I have recently opened it back up and de-soldered the jack off and was going to try something like this but think I may have broken the + lead off the jack argh!
