The part is the AC power pin. . . .Look here for a replacement. The repair isn't as hard as some would have you think. The key to doing it successfully is to take it slow and EZ. Take digital pix of the dis-assembly process (use them later when re-assembling the system). Look online and you should be able to find a guide to dis-assembling your laptop. I've done a few and they really aren't that difficult. Parts are under ten bucks. Plan on about two or three hours to do the whole job.

Re: power plugin in back of m65
In laptops they consider it the power supply, because they usually replace the whole unit, you can probably find a new pin, just the broken one, at an electronics store such as Radio Shack/ Source by Cirquit City, and solder it to the board. Be aware it is quite difficult servicing a laptop and if you are not adept at electrical service you may severely damage the unit, in this case I would take it to a service shop.

Take out the battery and connect the charger. Then try to turn on the computer. If it works, there is no problem with your computer. After that insert the battery, plug in your adapter and try turning on once more. If it doesn't work, you need to get a new battery.
Remove the Battery
Remove the AC Adapter
Press/hold down power button for 10 seconds
Plug AC Adapter in and turn the computer on
If the system doesn't turn on still then there's a problem with your motherboard. and it might need replacement.
Try to perform power drain. Take out the battery and unplug the power adapter. Press and hold the power button for 30secs. Put the battery back in then plugin the power adapter then trn on the computer. You can also power on the computer without the battery. If your computer wont turn just using the power adapter then there is a possiblility that there is a problem with your power adapter.
The first thing to do is make sure your adapter is providing the correct voltage. Even if the green light is on for the adapter you need to actually test the voltage at the end where it plugs into the computer. Use a DC voltmeter. The outside of the plug is the negative (ground) and the inside is the positive. You should read anywhere from +19V to +20.5V. If the voltage is not correct, replace the power adapter. If the adapter is good then check and see if the power socket where the power adapter plugs into the computer is solid. The internal jack is held in place by some fairly flimsy plastic and may have broken loose. If it is loose then there is a good chance that the jack has a wire that broke loose. Repairing that requires that you disassemble most of the computer to get to the jack and then do some soldering. Take it to a repair shop if you are not comfortable doing this.
If your battery is not charging there could be two reasons for the same . First the battery has exceeded its lifetime and requires a change or is faulty
Second your ac adapter is not giving enough charge to charge the battery.
Open the battery health meter , by pressing the Fn+ F3 key on the keyboard . check if battery reports any error message.
Shutdown the computer and disonnect the Ac adapter and the battery and press the power button for 10 seconds
Reconnect both the Ac adapter and the battery
power on the system and tap on the f2 key slowly on the left side of the screen , look for the option that says battery info.
Check what is the status of the Ac adapter and is the battery showing charging.
if the Ac adpater shows as none, then adapter needs a replacement otherwise the battery.
Try to remove the battery, and plug it into the wall. If it then boots, your battery has failed. This happens frequently. If it still wont boot you will need to take to someone to see if the board has died or other issues. Hope this helps
To my knowledge most current laptop AC adapter are designated/designed to be autovolt. This refers to the capability of the adapter to accept (without any problem) any voltage anywhere and still process it to a useful output that the laptop can use. This could be verified by looking over the sticker/nameplate of the adapter. If it says 1--~240VAC, then it is auto volt. The next area of concern would be the way the AC plugs are designed. US standards differs from European and for the AC adapter/charger to fit the European wall outlets, some sort of mechanical adapter is required. Most US AC plugs are parallel polarized flat prongs whereas Europeans would be small circular prongs.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
