    Thanks. Regret only the one USB socket.

    Do you feel it will be inaccessible or too delicate a job?

    There may be a PCMA Cardbus adaptor solution, but I'm strapped for cash just now..

There are no manuals on how to dismantle just about any laptop, this is trial and error and you would have to work this out yourself. If you do attempt this take care to make notes to where the screws came from, draw a diagram of the laptop and mark up where this go as you go along. When you do get to the laptop motherboard you may find that you might not be able to replace the USB socket, if this is the case and you have a spare working socket, re-assemble the laptop following the guide you did and buy a USB hub

    PCMCIA soloution will do but you will find a four way hub will be much cheaper

    kind regards

The pin that u put the charger in has went back in the laptop. how to open it to get to it to fix it.

The power socket on a laptop is usually soldered directly to the mainboard. Sometimes the socket is on a seperate smaller daughterboard or on a cable that connects to the mainboard, but usually this is not the case. Opening the laptop to perform this repair can be very trick and time consuming. I would certainly not recommend an amateur attempting this repair as usually the entire board needs to be removed, the socket de-soldered and a new socket soldered in place. Not for the faint hearted! If you wish to provide laptop model details I may be able to provide the screw locations etc and disassembly guide.

You would have to look on sites like Ebay for a spares/repair the same model.
Lots of people sell old laptops with cracked screens, but you would not know if the mobo was ok till you got it. It may be cheaper to but a second user laptop, you could take the old hard drive out of your laptop and fit it in a caddy to keep your data

How do you replace the power jack socket?

Hi there,

I'm a laptop repair specialist. The DC Power Jack is soldered to the motherboard. While I am able to do this repair I no longer take the trouble because there are many vendors on eBay who perform the service for half, or less than half, of what I'd have to charge a customer.

Go to eBay and in the search window type in "Laptop DC Power Jack Repair". You will be re-directed to a page with many choices of vendors where you simply send them the laptop and they return it repaired. You should expect to pay between about $85 to $125 including all shipping.

Take care,
