This morning my Gateway M520 powered down out of nowhere and subsequently happened several more times and then wouldn't start up at all until I left it sit awhile. After turning it back on and being cautious I found the power plug was extremely hot.
In the little searching around I did, I found others having the same description to the problem I was having. Apparently its the DC jack and it needs to be replaced. I've been disassemblying my computer and I don't want to go any further until I know what I'm doing. How can I get to the DC jack and replace it?
