Most likely the DC charger board needs replacement.

On the G74 the DC jack is soldered to the motherboard. I would advise professional assistance replacing the dc jack.


I did a tutorial a few years ago on how to replace the dc jack on a 73, your success depends on your patience and skill. I have had mixed reviews.

If you want to attempt to replace the dc jack there is a link in my sig. The G73 has the same dc jack as the G74.
