Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Loose connection - won't charge
\015 There is a loose connection where the charger connects to my computer. At least that's what the repair shop said when they charged me $100 to "tighten" it 2 months ago. Please tell me I can fix this myself!\015
If the pin is cracked or broken, you'll need a new motherboard. Same issue on a friends Toshiba Laptop.
