Don't pull your hair out,.. it's not an uncommon issue.
You don't have to replace your board. At least one of them sounds like the connector has come loose
or has issues, and needs replaced. The other sounds like the adapter itself. I ordered a new adapter on
Ebay this morning for about $28 total for a Compaq Presario and all laptop models seem to be about
the same price for adapters on that site. As far as replacing the connector,.. you in luck, there are
several places on ebay that you can send the laptop to ad they will diagnose the laptop and if it
is the connector they have a 1 day turnaround. Think that service is about $100 or so possibly
cheaper. On EBay search for 'laptop power jack repair'.

If you don't feel the value of your laptop is enough to warrant such an expense you can order a
replacement jack instead and try and tackle replacing it yourself. ( there are listings to order
just the power jack )
