[vox-tech] Schematics for motherboard

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 that was damaged early this year by a power
surge and I am finally getting around to seeing if it is fixable. The
computer seemed to run fine with two exceptions: (1) I couldn't get
the computer to recognize an external monitor connected to the VGA
port (not a huge concern) and (2) I couldn't charge the battery.
Obviously, once the battery was completely drained the computer became
a paper weight.

I assumed the power surge damaged the DC power jack and I opened the
laptop up today see if the component had any product numbers on it so

component? And perhaps where to get a replacement part?
