These are all broken...if you want to try to fix one..by all means.
one has a no video problem. ( powers on, no video)
one has a no boot problem. (new memory and HD don't work)
two have a no charging problem. (one cannot charge at all, one gets charge but doesn't retain charge.

the charging part doesn't really matter to tell you the truth. those would be fine.

this is for someone in nica and basically just typing things and basics.

if you're throwing them out or what not.

"the charging part" not working might actually be a problem, since if it's the actual power port not working then you won't get power to the laptop much less be able to charge the battery. My acer's power port broke internally. I had to open it up and glue it all back together because basically the plastic that held all the contacts in their proper places just crumbled. Once I glued it all back up it worked fine. Also i've fixed a few that the power port is attached directly to the motherboard and the solder had developed enough stress fractures from too many forceful insertions/extractions (insert phallic jokes here) it no longer was making a solid electrical connection. A quick tap of the iron to the joints reflows the solder and reconnects them.

on the other hand if the board gets power but the battery simply wont charge then its just a bad battery/dirty contacts and cant read the battery properly, which is no big deal.
