Well, My HP laptop is a piece of shit. I have spent about $80 in parts to replace the power jack twice (my brother knows how to solder). I was wondering if any of you knew how to hardwire the charger to the inside of my computer. I just bought this port a couple of days ago and it's dying on me... again (and no returns once it's soldered!) I don't want to buy a new computer before I go to college (got one year left of High School). Any help is appreciated.
