comment What types of problems could lead to 10 logic board failures across 3 different laptops?
One inexpensive test you can do is to ensure the correct hot, neutral and ground connections are being made at a wall plate. This little tester sits in my laptop bag with varied video dongles and USB thumb drives. When I need to plug in the power brick to charge in a location I've never been before, this device tells me if the socket is correctly wired. Remember to test BOTH sockets in a duplex jack. Internal damage, either mechanical or electrical, is usually invisible.

Dan K. - My first thought would be to check the quality of the AC power these laptops' chargers are connected to. I'm assuming you've used the correct chargers for the laptops. If you're using the two-prong dingus on the power brick, replace it with the three-prong grounded cable that it came with.

I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it appears to be a question about the Microsoft Windows operating system.
