The charger slot on my Amilo Pro v2055 laptop had become loose and thus not able to charge the battery. I took it to a laptop repair shop and was told that it was a right off because I'd have to get the whole motherboard changed due to the charging component being bent too far back.
I wanted to know whether it is worth my time trying to pursue and fit a replacement motherboard and or if it will be more hassle than its worth? Or if there is another way around this? I don't want to have to replace my beloved laptop!

well i had a amd chip that would get really hot and it would make the computer not boot up at all so i replaced it and it fixed the problem i was told it was about to go out so maybe this advice will help u good luck
this sound very much to me like overheating check all the vents on the laptop make sure they are free and clear. If you have used the laptop on a bed or sofa for a period of time the vents can become clogged with a buildup of dust, if this is the case then you will need to open up the laptop and clean the fan and heatsink. you could also try vacuming the vents.
Remove the battery and the power supply. Hook it to wall power only w/o the battery and try to turn it on. If it boots great, otherwise pull the power from the unit while it tries to turn on. Plug it back in and try turning it on again. If that doesn't work you need to re-seat the RAM and/or processor. Last thing to try if that doesn't work is new RAM as a processor almost NEVER goes bad and it is either the RAM or the motherboard at that point.
If so, unplug it from the wall charger, remove the battery and wait 5 minutes. Then plug the unit back in, leaving the battery out. Attempt to power up. You may lose what work you hadn't saved from the previous use, but nothing else.
If that doesn't work, it's possible that
A) power socket isn't completely connected to the motherboard anymore, so
B) battery isn't charging properly, or
C) the wall charger has gone bad.
I'd say you're in hibernation tho.
If it's only 10 months old it is still within the manufacturers warranty, so do not touch or alter anything to do with the charger or battery, as even though the battery is seeming to be the fault, it is normally the motherboard charging point that is faulty or the motherboard not recognising the battery is connected.
