  1. Hey guys, I have a gateway LT2016u netbook, and the charging port, if that's what you call it is broken. I think my careless teenage self would be to blame, but anyways I need to find a new port. This would be the part that's inside the computer that you plug the charger in. Can anyone help me?

    This should do the trick:

    Double check the part looks the same as what you already have.

    Power jack will give better results when you search. The good news is its a plug in one, not soldered which makes it very easy to fit.

    This video shows a different model but should give you a good idea of what is involved:



    Hope this helps.

    I'll be headed to the repair shop just to make sure it's not my charger that's broke but then I need to find an OS haha. Windows XP just started freezing on me so I got linux and then my power died! Ughh
