compaq presario 2597US (2003) has been giving me charging problems (the dc power supply indicator does not light up) since few months now. Initially i changed the adapter, which worked for a few weeks but the same problem started again. Now again after rep[lacing the adapter i realised that the dc jack pin feels a little loose, though cant say for sure. Well my lappy totally dead now, so i tried taking it apart to see if i could do anything about the dc jack but it looks pretty well attached to the motherboard.
What do i do next?
is the lappy worth salvaging?
Can i recover data from the HDD?
