Acer 5050 laptop no power

\015 My daughter was using the machine and did not completely push the power cord in. Result was the end of the cord that inserts into the comp melted. Bought a new power cord and now getting now power up. \015\012\015\012When the power button is pushed the green light on front lights and then goes off. There are no other indications the machine is trying to power up other then the green light. Also tried powering on with battery removed, gets the same results. Thinking internal power supply is hosed??????\015

Answers :

\015\012 You may need to change the jack on the computer.When the cord was not all the way in, it will generate heat and will cause to burn out your jack. A local Acer agent could replace this for a nominal fee.
I have the same thought.
\015\012But please check the new power adaptor has the same output voltage as the old one.
\015\012If same the power supply unit needs to be changed on the laptop.
\015\012All the best!
