I'm looking for a replacement plastic part that goes on the pins in the DC power jack. The plastic part is broken and so it keeps falling out. I can't charge the computer without that piece.

Found: "Cylindrical plugs generally have an insulated tip constructed to accept insertion of a pin. The outer body of the plug is one contact, most often but not always the negative side of the supply. A pin mounted in the socket makes contact with a second internal contact. The outer plug contact is often called the sleeve, while the inner one is called the tip." So, maybe I'm looking for just the sleeve part of the power jack rather than having to take apart the whole laptop and mess with soldering. Any ideas?
