So, to start this off.  I have owned an asus a53sd-es71 for about a year and a half until the motherboard died.   Luckily, it was under warranty.  Well, now it died again and I do not want to pay for a new board.

 

Here is a link to the laptop that I have:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834230235

 

Now, I'm not entirely sure if its the board that is broken, But the DC charging port instead.  Either way, im done with this laptop.

 

On to my question, What should I be able to salvage from this machine and how would I be able to put it into a new one? 

 

Thanks for looking at this,  Tarpels.

Hi, the only component that can be salvaged is the hard drive apart from that there isn't anything else you can salvage from. Using the old hard drive in a new laptop is not necessary as the newer laptop has a faster hard drive.

Only the hard drive? That is it?

Yes, only the hard drive can be taken out and transferred to a new laptop as most parts on a laptop is custom design and made. Although you might be able to take the ram out and hopefully there is free ram slots and no compatibility issues.

Hi, I would suggest that since You are done with it that You consider replacing the DC Jack if You are sure that is the problem. Looking in Google shows the jack to be inexpensive in the USA anyway.

 

Two years ago a local Computer repair place would also replace them for $149.99 US dollars. You may find a less expensive repair facility.

 

Good Luck Whatever You decide to do
