Hey I'm kinda new to the whole electronics scene. Just started as a freshman in college.

I tried looking up the number on the part cant find anything I don't really know what that part is called but it has 4 pins on two sides
and is about 5mm length on each side. But I know that part is the problem its not out putting enough volts. If someone could help find me that part or one that will work in its place that would be much appreciated thank you!

This part is on a Acer Aspire E15 E5-576G-5762 motherboard

You have a pretty clear logo on the component...start there when looking. Then figure out what package it is and narrow down results. Here are some good resources for suggestions on identification:

Sorry to be the person to rain on your parade, but even if you manage to replace the component you think is defective, you have no way of testing all of the motherboard functionality to insure that nothing else is broken. An unreliable motherboard is worse than no motherboard at all because it could be corrupting things without you noticing.

I had an old motherboard that had bad caps (bulging tops). I replaced the caps and the board still didn't work, so I just put it aside and swapped the motherboard with another that I had in another computer.

Oh okay I never really thought about using the logo. Will do in the future though thank you! Also thank you for finding a part!

I understand it could be more worse than that but this is just an old laptop I had laying around and wanted to try and fix it but thanks for the advice though I appreciate it!
