We have an Acer laptop that's a few years old but was ideal for surfing the net. The socket in the laptop where the the ac adaptor plugs in broke and a friend of a friend replaced it (for a fee), but it still hasn't worked since - a bit awkward as we felt we couldn't complain. Can anyone suggest how we can get it sorted out? Don't really want to spend loads just for someone to have a look at it only to tell us it can't be fixed. Can't afford to replace it but it seems such a waste, not being able to use it when it seems to have such a simple problem.
