    What's the best site to find expert PC tech support for actual hardware? I'm trying to fix one of my old laptops myself and I believe I know what's wrong with it. I opened it all up, found a broken piece and I think I know where it's broken off of but I don't know what it would be doing broken off of that spot. It's a Compaq Persario 2100 by the way, and if anyone here could actually help me I took some pictures. What's wrong with it is that it won't take a charge, not because of the battery, but the actual metal piece that takes the charge from the cable got loose from the motherboard (or so I thought anyways).

    Here's the broken piece:

    Charge Hole:

    Black Box (On other side of charge hole), it's loose and the small metal piece coming out of it is where I believe the broken piece broke off of:

    ^ I looked through it and it doesn't really seem to focus on the physical hardware.
