Dc jack socket for Sony VAIO VGN-FW is very easy to loose, I think you can replace the cabled dc jack, no solder work, plug in and work, see this reference page:
the above item is with ground cable, it is known that sony FW uses both harnesses with or without ground cable, you can cut the ground cable directly if your laptop does not use it, or order from this page for the one without ground cable:
hope this can help you

My sony laptop power jack socket is now become loose, how can i fix it? do i need to remove all the case and tighten it or is it for replacement?

This is a common problem, and the solution is not cheap or easy. The connector is soldered to the motherboard, or sometimes to a smaller auxiliary board. Either way, taking apart a laptop is not easy. This is a fix usually recommended for a computer shop. Sometimes it is not repairable, and a new circuit board is needed.

Power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I

On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

My Sony VAIO's wireless switch doesnt wanna work...When I turn it on the Wi-Fi program comes up but the computer cant get conected to the internet and the light next to the bottom stays off...what shoud I...

Try to go to another place where there is free WIFI like Starbucks or similar place.

If the computer can connect there, the the problem is with the WEP KEY on your modem/router. You need to update this key on your computer's wireless connections.

We need to know what operating systems do you have and what kind of modem/router do you have to help you more.
