First off, do you have a way to check the output of the ac adapter to ensure it's putting out the correct current?
If you've done that and have a multimeter handy, you can remove the battery, system off, and check the charge pins for current/voltage. I believe one of the end pins is neg (ground) and at least one of the other pins should show 2.6-3.6V, as well as other various voltages. If you fail to get any response at the charger pins, we'll need to look at the board circuitry, assuming again that the ac adapter is operating properly.

The loose connection for the AC adapter means the motherboard needs to be replaced or the AC adapter jack on the motherboard needs to be replaced. (With Labor, it is about the same cost to buy a new motherboard as it is to have the old one fixed)
Motherboards are available on EBay for around $100

its not too difficult, you just need the proper soldering stuff and the confidence to do it. On the 5150 you do have to remove the screen, keyboard, drives and worst of all, the processor in order to get to the power jack. the motherboard needs to be removed from the case so that you can get adequate access to do the job. it reminds me of changing a water pump on a car- you have to dismantle half the engine just to get to it but once your there its only 2 bolts. the hardest part is remembering where everything goes back and in what order and making sure that all the right screws go back in the right places when reassembling. it can be done in about 1-2 hours for a beginner. most computer repair places charge about $100. and if you have not already aquired the replacement jack you can find them on eBay for $6-15
