I have a laptop disassembled and wish to determine if the motherboard is receiving current. Prior to disassembly, the laptop was not powering up at all. And, prior to that, it would only power up and stay powered on if the AC adapter chord is held up. Based upon these symptoms, I replaced the DC recharge port. The AC adapter is working fine and outputing the correct DC voltage as determined by my digital multimeter. If possible, I would like to use this new digital multimeter to determine if the laptop motherboard is receiving current following the DC recharge port replacement.
In closing, any help regarding this question will be greatly appreciated. I will look forward to hearing back from everyone.
Thanks so much.
