So I acquired a laptop from my in-laws that had a bad power chord (tested it with a meter). So ordered a new chord off ebay and no dice. Damn! So opened up the cases and wasnt getting good power to any devices and only a few pins on the mobo. finally pulled mobo ALL the way out and looked at top side and think I found the problem....
Take a look!
Guess this ones going to be scrap.

I have a friend with lots of cats, he likes to leave the computer open,
and he has lost a few computers that way, for some reason they like
to spray the computer, and that stuff is just like acid on the motherboard,
also rats and mice are bad about that
That board is way past gone
