the power jack on my Ze4800 is broken again. a couple months ago i replaced the original power jack after looking for ways to fix the oringal and now the new one is broken. and while i was looking for a way to fix it, i came across a thread on this site talking about hp's power jacks that break alot and that there was a power cord that plugs into the keyboard(ps/2) port(or usb or something)? but i can't find the thread anymore. I was wondering if anyone had any information on it, or another way to fix the problem?


thanks,

You can try the repair again several ways. 1. You can just replace the jack again and again. 2. you can buy a regular power jack and find a spot on the side of the laptop wherre it won't interfere with anything internally and install a brand new jack there. This will also require that you cut the tip off of your power supply and replace it with a new tip that will mate with your new jack. You can also install a pig-tial, wires coming through the side of your laptop to an external jack and apply some heat shrink to make it a bit nicer to look at.
