Question about Dell Inspiron 1000 Notebook
I believe you're talking about the DC jack on the computer, if so, then you can find one on Ebay at a very cheap price, around $3. To install this you will need to disassemble the machine down to the motherboard. The jack is soldiered to the board. Once you get the board out you will be able to see the soldiered connections. You'll need a soldiering iron and soldier, remove the old and resoldier the new. Here's a couple of links with breakdown diagrams for various machines, you may be able to find one for your machine.

Verify that the power supply voltage switch is set correctly. If the input voltage for the power supply does not match the correct setting for your country, your computer may not power on at all.
Check for disconnected computer power cable connections. A loose or unplugged power cable is one of the top reasons why a computer doesn't turn on.
Perform a "lamp test" to verify power is being provided from the wall. Your computer isn't going to turn on if it's not getting power so you need to make sure that the power source is working properly.
Test your power supply. At this point in your troubleshooting, it's very likely that thepower supply unit in your computer is no longer working and should be replaced. You should however test it just to be sure. There's no reason to replace a working piece of hardware when testing it is fairly easy.
Replace your power supply if it fails your testing.
