Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 2480 Notebook ?

The pin that the power cord goes into has broken off

\015 I currently have the power cord set in place by some strong rubber bands going around the underneath of the screen around to the side where the power plug goes in and fits over the male pin that has come off, to keep the connection going. I would like to have it fixed but not sure exactly what needs to be done. I have seen two different pieces to replace that part with, one is just the housing of the pin w/the pin attached and another is the housing with parts of a mother board.\015\012Thanks for your assistance.\015

Answers :

Is the cord broken in the computer, or the monitor or the pin broken and stuck in the machine? If it is in a desktop it goes into the power supply. Which you can change the whole power supply fairly cheap. that is if it in a desk top computer. 4 screws, 4 or 5 connectors and ta da new power supply, All you need is readings off power supply such as wattage. Good luck
