My VAIO Laptop may need a new internal DC Jack soon, can get them on ebay, for cheap. I can disassemble my Laptop completely, so that is not an issue, my concern is having to solder the new connector to the power cable.

I have No soldering experience. How difficult would this be?

Thanks for any info

I highly advise you not to try it. It takes special equipment
You don't just go the Radio Shack or Sears and buy a soldering iron

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

well, you can, you can even buy them from the hardware section in wal-mart, but if you have no experience sodering, this is not where I would recomend starting. finding an old computer you no longer care about would be a much better place to start playing around with stuff like this.

Any electronics repair shop should be able to do the repair for you. Look for TV/VCR or home Audio repair in your "Yellowpages" or on whitepages.com
