Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help me with an old Dell Insprion 1000 laptop. This stopped booting so I took it apart and found a 8-pin chip on the underside of the mobo near the power jack appeared to be seriously overheated - location shown below under the yellow mark. img.photobucket.com/albums/v383/stevewes/board.jpg I was looking on ebay and found someone else selling a damaged board with the exact same problem so maybe a common issue? Another seller with a good board read the markings off the chip for me (mine is too badly scorched to read). He tells me the markings are "4835 L44A". Does anyone know what this is (eg is it a, EEPROM device in which case I may as well give up now as no code to program a new one), or does it have some other function - if so where can I get one because I've googled the part code and not found anything. Thanks to anyone who can help / advise!!
