I replaced the jack on a Dell Inspiron Do it at your own risk though, but I recommend it because I had no other way. Test the power supply itself. Am I right in assuming that the adapter and the jack are both okay?

Take gateway mx6455 audio a broken computer or other electronic device, and practice gatewaj and re-soldering capacitors or resistors.
