My laptop won't charge! The laptop model is 15-g070nr. The jack seems to be pushed in do to excessive pressure.

first of all - welcome to BC !

 

Make and model of computer ? 

 

This is not just useful information, in your case it is important because some charger sockets are mounted to the case and cable connected to the mobo. More commonly, the connector is mounted directly on the mobo  and in the situation you describe - "pushed in" - require a new mobo for the repair.

15-g070nr is the model. It is an HP laptop (series unknown ). It has 444GB + 18.2GB from the RD.

I have a problem !  Plugging 15-g070nr into Google I came up with a very good video and the user guide, however they don't appear to show quite the same thing.

 

The video - 

The guide -  http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04218642

 

At about 8 min 50 secs in the video in the very bottom left of the image on screen is what looks like the power connector - that small square black object, which would be on the RHS of the laptop as you sit using it. The guide, on page 15, shows the power connector socket at being on the rear of the left hand edge as you sit using it. Can you tell me which is correct ?
