When i put in the power supply plug into the back of my laptop (the circular type), it will not recharge or power the machine, the only way i can do it is by pushing the plug at different angles. I have known for the pin to go back into the socket, but its not the pin - it may be the external contact around the plug, or on the board. I opened it up but could really see anything unusual. This was a few weeks ago when I checked. i sent the power sup back to the manufacturer and they sent me another, but it wasnt the actual plug either. I am guessing the socket. Anyone know how to test this with a multimeter??
Also anyone know where i can find a power socket to replace for the latop?

Thanks,

Olie
