Question about PC Laptops
On my IBM thinkpad the area where you plug in the charger is broken the "male plug" is wobbly...Is there anyway to fix the problem myself without spending alot of money?...I know it is a old notebook but It works fine for me right now...I want to know if it is worth trying to save or should I just get a new notebook?
I need to be pointed to the repair manual. i have the other manuals but none that tell me how to remove the motherboard.

In order to do the needed repair, you'll need to remove the motherboard. Feel up to that? It's really not that bad of a job if you can invest a couple hours of time, you're good at keeping track of screws and handy with a soldering iron.
If you want to give it a try, let me know what model you're working on and I can point you to a repair manual.
As to the question of whether it's worth it, or not. I guess that you are the one to answer that. ;o)
