Don't drop your laptop

Monday evening I accidentally dropped my laptop on the floor. At a first glance everything worked. But yesterday I observed that I was running on battery and that it did not charged. I checked the power adapter and it worked.

First I run a new backup before further investigations. Afterwards I started unassemble the laptop. When I finally saw the power connector the positive poles sold were broken. When I dropped the laptop the power connector must have taken the hit.

Today I started glue the plastic parts of the connector. Later I will solder the connector. I can only hope it will work. Wish me luck!

Until the laptop is fixed I have to use my wifes laptop Piglet which also uses Ubuntu.
