I acquired a T1000LE laptop off eBay recently; it didn't work so I took it apart to recap it. It looked okay until I turned the board over. Turns out the sub battery had spewed gunk over the motherboard, and all the power converter circuitry was covered in green fluff. I cleaned it up a bit with IPA and some cotton buds but this is well beyond my abilities.


So, if anyone near Switzerland feels like they can do something with this, you're welcome to it for the cost of postage (warning: I live in Switzerland, it ain't going to be cheap).
