Question about Acer Computers & Internet
It's a very strong bet that your DC Power Jack (the hole the cord plugs into) has finally broken loose enough that it can't power the laptop. The jack is soldered to the motherboard. The repair shop probably does not have anyone skilled enough to desolder the jack and resolder a new one on. The part itself is only about $5 but you have to disassemble the laptop and remove the motherboard to properly repair it.
I send all such repairs for my customers to any one of several vendors on eBay who usually do the repair for around $50. I'm posting a link below of some choices for you. Pick a company with a high % Feedback rating and you should be just fine. You buy the Auction, send in the laptop and they usually guarantee your money back if they can't fix it.
