Acer Chromebook: blown motherboard component?
My father’s Acer Chromebook 14 (CB3-431) will no longer power-on. It worked fine for 18 months before one day it no longer charged. Once the battery ran down it no longer powers on.
I suspected the power port might be at fault, as the socket is quite loose. When removed the back I noticed a white mark on the motherboard near to what I believe is the charging circuit.
Now I am no longer sure whether it is worth ordering a new power port.
Does anybody know if this looks like a blown motherboard component?
