    Hey all.....I have a gateway 7110gx notebook. The center pin of the
    AC power jack on the motherboard snapped off. Repair shops only want
    to swap board for 450 dollars. I have de-soldered the broken AC power
    jack from the MB, but local stores have no stock on such an item. Is
    there a way to identify what exact jack is needed, so it can be
    ordered online? I see several that are physically compatible with
    socket in MB, but I am unsure of voltage, pin size, etc.....thanks
    for reading all this......

    The power jack on a notebook computer is usually a passive device and it does
    not carry a voltage rating. Size of the power socket and size of pins need to
    be matched exactly.

    You may have to invest in several power jacks until you get one that matches up.
    Or find a supplier who knows for (almost dead) certain that the jack is for the
    7110gx... Ben Myers

  4. Try ebay. I've found several for Gateway laptops for about $3-4.
