Can you have the power socket changed on a laptop, i have a compaq r4000 laptop, and it will cost £79-99 to get a new one, and also they have stopped making the adaptor..it is an oval shape, very unusual

Let's say it's possible, sassy79. What's it going to cost to get it done, £30 - £40, then you have to buy another adapter, £25 (??)? That's assuming who ever does it doesn't mess up your laptop with a slip of the soldering iron. Dangerous.
