Answers :

You will have to take it to a techie and have a new d/c jack installed on the motherboard. Easy job, but want to know what you are doing. About $60us in my market for jack and labor.

Check your power options they may be set up to drain your battery instead of conserving it. click start>control panel>power options. In power schemes make sure its laptop/Note and set to a level to conserve as much power as possible while on battery. Always use Hibernate when leaving the computer for a while none of your data will be lost. Click the hiberate tab to enable hiberation. As for as the pugin goes its attached to the motherboard. So it would be best to have a PC repair shop fix it for you. Hope this helps.
