You have an Acer Aspire 5000 series laptop. The power port (DC jack) inside the laptop got broken and of course the laptop is out of warranty. What can you do? You can take it to a repair shop and pay tons of money OR fix the laptop yourself.
Thanks to Charles for his Acer Aspire 5000 disassembly instructions. The power connector is soldered to the motherboard and in order to replace the connector you’ll have to take the whole laptop apart and remove the motherboard. If you feel uncomfortable taking the laptop apart, do not even try it. You can damage the laptop.
In short, you’ll have to go through three easy steps
1. Disassemble the laptop.
2. Resolder or replace the power connector AKA power jack.
3. Assemble the laptop back together.
