My X60s decided yesterday to stop taking power from the AC adapter. I am running off of battery power at the moment. I did all of the power troubleshooting steps (removing the battery + trying the adapter; removing components such as memory and hard drive one-by-one, reassembling and powering up; swapped memory; tried 3 different adapters; trying a DIFFERENT battery + adapter) and I have had absolutely no luck.
Can anyone help me out here? I hate to think that I need to send my laptop in for service. I don't have the time for those shenanigans.

Well, I'm able to run off of battery power... so I would hope that my motherboard isn't fried.
Fingers crossed that its the connector. I guess I should be prepared to back everything up and ship it off for repair.
Unfortunately I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and need my laptop!!! URGH.

Pretty simple question here: I see that someone in my area has the SAME EXACT x60s as me. Is it humanly possible for me to just swap out the hard drives and voila, it would work?
Please tell me that the answer is that easy..... sigh.

I was able to locate the same exact X60s for sale in my area... used, for $600USD.
Since I was so desperate, I bought it, swapped the old drive into the newly purchased used-X60s and voila... I'm up and running with no problems. I can go on vacation with some peace of mind now.
I'll continue to troubleshoot the other unit, probably get it serviced, and then just sell it.
