The connection where you plug in the power on my compact presario R3000 laptop is broken. The female part that you plug into is loose and probably broken away from the solder on the mother board it self. I can hold the plug in and move it to charge the battery, but as soon as I let go it stops charging and the computer shuts down. how do I take it apart to resolder the connections?
