Hey Guys,
My Brother recently gave me an old Armada M700 that no longer works due to a power cord problem. The problem is is that the plug no longer fits snugly into the power cord plugin thing on the laptop. It is lose because years of use has bent the pin inside the laptop and the contact pad inside teh laptop is kind of worn. Just wondering if its possible to replace this power thing or somehow fix it.
Thanks,
rabbuk

There are two things you could try, depending on your level of tech skills. One would be to just solder the wire to the connector, or solder on an external connector, you should be able to buy one a your local radio shaft. Just be sure of the polarity.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
