Wanted: A31p [FOUND]

#1 Post by MooNWalker » Tue Jun 11, 2019 10:45 am

Subj. So long as the motherboard and cooling system are in working condition and the body is not damaged beyond normal wear and tear - I'm willing to buy.

I don't have a laptop to offer you, but am just chiming in to wish you the very best with your noble quest... :thumbs-UP:

Hmm I do have an A30p and an A31p. However, both have some form of motherboard problem. A30p doesn't charge any of the batteries (main or Ultrabay), but drains the battery just fine (which makes me think it is not a fuse problem), while the A31p has the famous RAM slot contacts issue. But both units do work with that aside. I know this isn't the best option, but if you are interested, pm me which one you want more and the price you expect, thanks

I found what looks like a good base to start with for A30p on eBay, so at this point I'd be more interested in A31p (will adjust topic name later)... But RAM slots issue - is that the one where they come unsoldered? If yes, then I'm good with soldering, but I'm not so sure I'm that good... Is it solid otherwise? To what extent the slots are bad, how exactly does it manifest?
