Ah, OK. I was going by the picture of the socket in chub's post. In that case, if power from the adaptor is reaching the multiplug on the end of the mini harness from the DC socket, it looks like the mobo has had it.
Can't be sure, but it's the link between the socket and the feeds to the mobo, so I'd guess so. As an aside, I've bought stuff from ebay from the US - it takes a few days, but it's always arrived OK. Might be worth a punt for the price.
