Hello all, i have a dell latitude d620 that i have been having some problems with. about a month or so back, the charging on the computer became finnicky, as it would only take charge every now and then. The power jack in the back of the laptop seemed to possibly be loose or something. And now it wont charge at all, so im assuming the solder has broken off from the jack to the board. I tried a different charger, and still the same result. I want to keep the computer up and running as cheaply as possible. I do not know how to solder however. I looked online and found working d620 laptops, without hard drives, memory or battery. My questions is, could i purchase one of those and put my hard drive, memory, and battery in there and be good to go? I would like to have all my old files, programs, and operating system to be transferred over to the purchased d620. Thanks for your help in advance.
