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.
No, do not throw away. completely dry and try again. You can sometimes use a USB keyboard. REplacement keyboards for laptops are surpirisingly cheap, not counting install, but typically install is not serious, often no case opening...Toshiba, however, is sometimes a different story.....
A note about computers, Lower cost and seriously better stability are the reason to look at a new computer. Essentially, with an old machine, you put most of the cost of a new machine into repairs. but you still have an old machine....... Which will fail someday....
