After having some power jack problems, I got Dell to send an on-site technician out to fix my laptop. The guy was (understandably) cranky, but funny and a cool dude. He let me take pictures of him disassembling my laptop (to an alarming degree) and reassembling it. While he did some fine work, it turns out it was the AC adapter all along and the replacement wasn't necessary. Oh well, it can't hurt to have a new motherboard can it?

Unfortunately I never got the guy's name, but I gave him the link to the site to get the pictures, so Dell Technician Guy, if you e-mail me, I'll put your name in here. Thanks again!
