My toshiba 4060xcdt laptop has a faulty AC port. Is there any where I may be able to buy a spare one or is it a case of replacing the whole motherboard? I've opened it up and had a look and the port is split into two.

is the port soldered into the board ?

then your better off trying to track down a second hand spares or repairs dealer as the manufacturer will not sell these parts as individual units, or you could try returning the laptop to the manufacturer and if it's not under warranty then pay the sum of repair, it won't be cheap but it wont be as messy as trying to do it yourself especially on a laptop board!
