Having problems with your Gateway M305CRV Notebook ?

Dc power supply won't let battery charge unless i move cord around and it is intermittent so i have to watch light all the time to see if it is charging or not.How difficult is it to change this as i can not afford to take it to a repair shop?Thanks,Skip.

\015\012Apparently there has been a problem with the contact plate on the outer edge on the side of the plug breaking, either because the plug was pushed in to far or being forced in that breaks the outer plate that connects the center pin to the motherboard as well as the housing which was completely broken. Almost like it was dropped while it was pluged in.
