How great it is to have two identical laptops so that as one is torn apart getting a new power connector, the drive can be swapped into the stand-by for interim use.  I feel like Southwest Airlines - come to think of it, these matching laptops are about as old as Southwest's average 737 Laughing

Here's a pic, this is proving to be about as difficult as I anticipated - a connector with 9 pins (four through-hole mounting pins, and five power pins).  How does one heat up all 9 pins at once to eject the faulty component?  Needless to say, this hasn't been a "fun" project.
