Question about HP NX9010 Notebook
I have a HP NX9010 laptop that the DC Jack is going out on. What would be the best way to have it fixed. How hard of a job will it be to soder a new jack on the board is it easily accessable. Should I just take to best buy
It is unlikely you need to solder a NEW jack. Just resolder all 3 lugs (and support lugs) on the existing jack. After extended use (and especially if you catch the cord with your foot and stress the jack with that kind of leverage) the connections to the motherboard get loose. A clean soldering gun and flux core solder will usually repair everything fine. Add a bit of extra solder to each lug (but never enough to contact any other connection). Then I always finish with a few coats of super glue or epoxy between the jack body and the motherboard (but you must be sure not to get any fluid inside the jack/connectors!). The glue adds strength and makes it better able to resist the stress. Lasts a lot longer. But you must be very sure of yourself, to open a laptop. If you are not 100% confident, then yes, you should go to Best Buy as you asked. If you do it yourself, and cannot download a manual for this, then it is vital to take notes of where each part/screw goes, and the order you disassembled things.

Simply plug the ac adapter into the wall, the laptop will charge the battery itself.
Keep in mind this... in general, a laptop runs at full speed when it is plugged into the wall. When most laptops are running on battery, things are running more at 50% capacity to save on power, this giving you more battery life. A dimmer lcd and slowing the processor down when not needed are common traits.
You can use the FN key (function key) and the corresponding dim control on the keyboard to adjust the brightnedd of the backlight. It should be marked on your keyboard in a different color, like blue or maybe green (not familiar with that models keyboard).
