    I need the little board also. I replaced the jack but it didn't work and I think there is a capacitor or something on that board is damaged because it starts smelling after power is applied.

You mean THIS?

eBay is full of power jacks for various computers. It isn't a difficult thing to do to replace it if you have a fair amount of soldering/desoldering experience. Be very careful and wear some sort of grounding device because you might toast the motherboard as you work on it.

I'm guessing you are having problems with it charging, including having to find a specific spot where there is a good connection and/or having to apply pressure in order for it to charge.

    I'm sorry, I didn't realize the entire power board was a separate piece. HERE is a link to the entire board, it's screwed down to the case and attaches to the main board, so should be a really easy swap out.

Power cord gets hot

The is a DC jack, requires a resolder back to the mainboard. Jack cost about 10$ but are you comfortable with soldering? If not it is a little bit of an expensive repair.

Averatec 3200 shuts off "critical battery" unless i am pushing it in at some crazy angle. doesn't seem loose, but if you don't push on the cord insertion, it shuts down. tried duct tape and no use. should...

It could be the power cable or the DC jack itself. DC jack requires a re solder to the same main board. This repair can get expensive being you must take out the whole main board. Jack itself cost about 7-15 dollars and is easy to do if your comfortable with soldering.
