Default DV7 Laptop charging issues

OK to start off I have a HP DV7-1448dx laptop with the AMD processor, the GPU failed and the customer brought it to me, I ordered the direct replacement (or so I thought) from ebay and what I got was not it, I got the Intel Core 2 Duo version of the DV7 board instead. I bought the correct heatsink and it fits perfectly into the case but there is a problem. The battery will not charge when connected. I disassembled checked all connections and reconnected the battery to the old bare board and connected the power supply and the battery took a charge without issue. I then connected the charged battery to the laptop with the new board installed and it starts up and works flawlessly. My question is I know that there are two different pinouts to the 5 pin DC Jack plug assembly, I know that I have the wrong one, what I need is either a link the where I can buy one or a pinout from the other version so I can modify the one I have.

OK I did some more research into the issue and found some more information about the board, according to the heatsink I bought it is from a DV7t 1000, 1100, or 1200. Thank you SKM, I looked on the site with the pinout for the jack and I saved the site to favorites, will definitely be using that in the future, I dont see where you were going with the link to ebay PCX if you could clarify then I would appreciate it. But If i can find the pinout to the board or the two different pinouts to the DC jack assemblies then I could do the necessary modifications.

Or, you could send it to these guys about where you can get what you need. Heck, they may even fix it for a reasonable charge. These guys are really good and very fairly priced.

Not really a helpful suggestion, I am looking for answers so that I can repair this and know how to repair it in the future, I appreciate you weighing in but I don't think that you are allowed to imbed hyperlinks to sell services.

I just gave you the link to the correct fans . . . not sure where the confusion is.
