Question about Computers & Internet
I am assuming you mean the DC jack on the motherboard in your laptop?
You can repair it yourself, or take it to a repair shop and pay to have someone do it.
To repair it yourself, you'll need:
1) A new DC jack (though sometimes you can fix the broken one)
2) The disassembly guide to your specific model of laptop. Google the phrase "laptop make/model disassembly" and one should come up pretty quickly. Guides are generally step-by-step with pictures included, and putting it back together is just the reverse of disassembly.
3) A soldering iron and solder. 15-30 watts for delicated boards like a motherboard. Once you've pulled your motherboard out, You can de-solder the broken DC jack from the motherboard (if necessary) and solder the new one on. DC jacks are generally 2-4 solder points and fairly simple to press back on.
