My laptop warranty has expired. I can no longer keep my battery charged. Here's why... I no longer have a tight connection from the DC power cord to the power port in the back of the machine. When I plug in the cord there is bigtime wiggle/play, and the charging light seldom comes on unless I get the cord in just the right position. I have 2 different power cords, and the same problem exists no matter which power cord I try. I have never opened a laptop case before, and I am wondering how risky it would be for someone like me to try replacing the power port at home. I presume I could get HP to mail me the part I need.
Any advice will be appreciated!
