You have already realised this is not an easy task. You will need to strip off the casing to reveal the motherboard, in particular the area where the mains socket is. You must also be extremely cautious when soldering on multilayer circuit boards that you don't melt any of the circuit runs. The best way to bodge this is to obtain a trailing power jack (same size as charger plug), and solder onto a short fly lead, then sokder this to the solder points of the PCB jack (get polarity right) and leave trailing outside laptop by an inch or two.Service recovery 02392 899292
You got 3 right!
D'oh! Not good, dude.
