I was hoping that someone on here , knows of where I can access parts for the alienware M5700 . I became aware that since it is several years old , its like owning a 1922 ford car. NO PARTS. Especially Alienware/dell .. There is alittle ckt board behind the plastic case that the charger plugs into , it has a little usb plug next to the power cord socket... I need that ckt board ... I found mother boards and such, they are several hundred dollars. This piece is not part of the motherboard. any help or a person that has one in a junk yard that I can strip for parts ? or better knows where the junkyard is !! thanks as usual to all you great people out here !!

Have you tried e-bay?

Its just a suggestion, sad to say I do not have spare parts to offer you, but you might find this part through e-bay if you try their search feature.

Good luck.
