HP DV4000 power problems

\015 My HP dv4000 is 3 or 4years old, never had a problem til about a month ago, it started shutting down for no reason. now it's the ac power pin jack on the motherboard i belive. i took a pair of needle nose pliers and bent the power pin down a little bit, and now it powers up, but will only stay on for about 15 minutes, then just shuts down on it own. i've took it about half way apart tryin to get to the motherboard to check the solder joint on the ac power pin, but was too afraid to take it all the way apart. so i put it back together, and it still does the same thing. the battery will charge and say 100% but the laptop will not power up from just the battery. you have to use the ac adapter and the battery. I read the 65w power supply wasn't big enough to run this laptop and HP should of sent the 90w power supply.\015\012HP says the 65w is plenty, and i need a new motherboard, which i know i don't need a new motherboard. My question is i found the manuals here to take it apart step by step, is this a common problem with the dv4000?\015\012i think HP should admit this is a defect, and recall or fix the problem.\015\012i gave over $1.200.00 for this laptop brand new, and have took really good care of it. it is just this power jack on the motherboard problem.\015\012i don't wanna risk messing somethin else up tryin to fix this power jack on the board...but i don't think i have any other choice. i tried testing the 65w power supply with a meter, and it said it was bad, but it still works. i took the laptop to staples, and they tried another ac 90w supply and it wouldn't power up. but i can bend on the pin with needle nose til it makes contact i guess and it powers up....strange i know..Have you guys ever had to solder this jack back on the board???\015
