Hi folks,

Hope I have the right forum for this question:

My son has a Gateway laptop model ML6714. He has been told he has a power jack problem from two different places. Both places have also told him they would have to send it off and the cost would be right at $200.00.

Is this something that is pretty much outside the ability of the average do-it-yourselfer and requires special knowledge and/or tools?

If you need some more information please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

If you feel comfortable opening the laptop, you could probably install the jack yourself if you acquire the jack.
A soldering iron would be required.

Thanks Tyree,

Since it's either that or probably get a new one I guess there's no real harm in trying. I have a brother-in-law that is a whiz with a soldering iron so I can get him to help with that part.

You answered my main question though.

I appreciate it.
