Hi,
My Toshiba Laptop H/P socket has come loose after the connection was accidently stepped whilst working on the floor. Can this be replaced/ repaired? Any experience of this would be very welcome.
Thanks

A lot depends on what exactly is broken -
If just the jack then replaceable
If jack ha broken solder on motherboard the again repairable.
If motherboard broken round jack area then costly for new board.

All means stripping laptop down to get at motherboard which is time consuming and therefore expensive when don by professionals (who give guarantee).
