Hi I have a m17 that was working great then while using it one day it shut off like it lost power . Upon inspection I found a chip and the one directly behind it to be burnt . Is there anyone who can identify the chip and recommend a compatible replacement?
It’s a 8 pin chip with fkj0041 stamped on it
The chips are where the ac power enters the motherboard
Are you able to post a picture showing the location of the chip?
How do I do that? It keeps telling me I can’t embed media
I set the photo as my profile picture
It’s pq701 on the mobo and the one directly behind it on the flip side
Upload a picture at a hoster and share the link.
Add at the link a character, if you can’t add links.

Here is a pic of an identical one , it is also the other damaged one on the back of the board
From the marking ‘P21N03’ the mosfet is from taiwan producer Excelliance MOS Corp. and the specific model is: EMP21N03HC
Here is the datasheet: https://web.excelliancemos.com/datasheet/MOS/EMP21N03HC.pdf
Thank you so much!!! I ordered the mosfets and a hot air station from Amazon , and last night I took a crack at soldering for the first time… Low and behold the laptop is fixed!!! Thanks for the help!!
