Hi there, I have an acer 3680 aspire note book. One of my darling children tripped over the cord and snapped off the pin to the mother board for the ac adapter. I have tried soldering the pin back on with a contductive solder, but it did not work. Is there a way to wire the power directly into where the battery supplies the power?

Re: acer 3680 ac pin broken
That's really not advisable. At our shop we do socket repairs, I suggest finding someone local who specialises in laptops and asking them to replace it. You can get the sockets on e-bay, etc, if you wish to try it at home, though I don't advise it.

Hi everyone it seems to me that the DC connector is loose inside your laptops,try wiggling it about gently at the charger to laptop cord nearer to the dc socket to verify this.Only solution is resolder or new dc socket.
I would reinstall the audio device driver. Try this: http://www.acerpanam.com/flex/acer/bin/acer.html#app=2766&9e7c-selectedIndex=0&3386-selectedIndex=2&bca4-selectedIndex=1&bf37-selectedIndex=1&4f90-selectedIndex=1
scroll down to Realtek Audio Driver. Follow directions from there.
