Bent pin when i charge

\015 I tyred to plug my acer laptop in and it wouldnt charge i noticed the pin was bent what do i do\015

Answers :

I asume the pin is in the computer. Remove the battery from the computer. With a small slot type screw driver, try to reach in and straighten the pin. Be very gentle and do not break it off. If this happens you will have to replace the power connector in the computer, not an easy task.
