I am trying to find the dc jack for the motherboard of a Lifebook A1010. The one inside broke apart. I was able to desolder the old one but am having a hard time locating a replacement. If you know any place that might have this part please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
Sounds like your DC Power Jack where the Power Cord plugs into the computer is bad.

If the DC Power Jack is bad, then eventually the
battery is going to die and you won't be able to boot your laptop. If
the dc power jack is bad, the ac adapter power cord can't charge the battery.
You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix the DC Power Jack. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard which means you will have to desolder the old one and solder the new one. Be prepared to spend some time and you have to have the hands of a surgeon or you will damage the motherboard.
If the internal DC Power Jack is loose, you will have totake the laptop apart to repair it. The DC Power Jack is on themotherboard and most times it is soldered to the motherboard. That meansyou will have to desolder the old one and solder a new one in it's place. Sometimes the dc power jack sits in a slot between the bottom case and palmrestwhich hold it in place and has a cable harness that plugs into the motherboard.
LOL, you've go to take the laptop apart because in most cases the DC Power Jack is soldered onto the motherboard. That means once you get the motherboard out of the laptop be prepared to spend an hour or two trying to desolder and remove the one that is bad. This is like being a surgeon. You have to be very careful or you will damage the motherboard. Once you've got it off, then you have to solder the new jack onto the motherboard and put the thing back together.
What the Heck is DC? If you want help you've got to explain yourself better.
I'm assuming you are saying the Internal DC Power Jack which is where the Power Cord plugs into is bad. Well, this will require you to take the laptop apart. Most times the DC Power Jack is soldered onto the motherboard, which means you will have to desolder the old one and solder a new one. This alone will take over an hour just trying to get the old broken one out. You have to be very care so that you don't break the motherboard or damage some other part on the board. Sometimes the DC Jack is in a slot on the board and the Palmrest and Bottom Case helps keep in in place. This type of DC Jack will normally have a cable that plugs into the motherboard.
Loose Power Adapter or loose internal dc power jack where the adapter plugs into the computer? If the Power Adapter is loose buy another one. If the internal DC Power Jack is loose, you will have to take the laptop apart to repair it. The DC Power Jack is on the motherboard and most times it is soldered to the motherboard. That means you will have to desolder the old one and solder a new one in it's place. Sometimes the dc power jack sits in a slot between the bottom case and palmrest which hold it in place and has a cable harness that plugs into the motherboard.
Do Not Attemp to Replace the Jack Unless You Have Experience with Soldering... The Original DC Jack Must First Be Desoldered and Removed... You Need A Desoldering Pump or Solder Wick (braid) To Remove the Old Solder From The Jack Post Pins..... DO NOT ATTEMP TO RIP OUT THE OLD JACK!!!!! You Will Pull The Contact rings from the center of the motherboard out and render the motherboard useless...
Slowly and carefully Unsolder the dc jack, Remove it and Clean the board.... Very Important to Clean the Motherboard after desoldering the old jack.... You Must Remove all old Flux...
Then Apply a light layer of fresh solder to all the contacts on the motherboard....
Apply Flux paste to the New DC Jack Pins and a light amount onto the contacts on the motherboard....
Insert the new DC JAck Into The Slots and Apply Solder to all points on the underside of the motherboard....
Flip The Motherboard Back Over, To THe Side Where THe DC Jack Is,, and Apply Flux then a light amount of Solder To The Side Pins and Back Power Pins ...
Then Clean the Motherboard off again using an Electronics grade circuit board cleaner (found at radio shack) or a tiny amount of denatured alcohol applied to a paper towel .. THe Purpose is to remove any remaining Flux..... as this will just deteriorate the New Solder over time unless cleaned off...
