Ok its not an ic. These things are about the size of a dime and are about 1/2 an inch tall. I'll try and see if I can come up off of some copper wire and maybe "Borrow" a battery from the Gateway computers. Then if it will charge that would be great. Hopefully it works. it should work right? Both batteries put out the same 14.8v of power and have the same female parts. I'll test it out and see what I can come up with. Hopefully it works so I can use it. Also I have a Laptop that a guy doesn't use. It's all broken up and messed up because he tried to take it apart, but obviously didn't know what he's doing. If I take the HD out of it and put my HD into it will it work? Will I have all my data or is there more that I have to do?
