    Question Advice on power supply issue

    So I noticed my G74SX power cord was becoming very loose and the battery mode/AC mode was continually cycling.

    I also noticed that the cord/power jack area was getting too hot. I decided to clean out the dust and came across this...Click image for larger version.

    I spoke with Best Buy and they quoted me 450 for a new motherboard and ~150 for a new power jack install.

    Two questions:

    1) Does the Asus G74SX motherboard come with a power jack attached?
    2) Should I try just replacing the power jack and see if this works first?

    My laptop is 3 years old and of course my warranty just ran out in August.. awesome timing!

    Thanks for any advice!
