My main laptop died two weeks ago; it wasn't charging. I ordered a cheap charger and tested my laptop. The issue wasn't the charger. I spent an hour and disassembled the laptop and found that the power jack is replaceable. Went online to order a new one and found that a replacement costs nearly $80. Four times what the charger cost. Grrr. It isn't a huge cost but i just can't seem to pull the trigger and buy it.
