keyboard coming apart!!

a couple weeks ago i noticed a clicking noise whenever i opened/closed the lid of my laptop...couldn't really find anything apparently wrong, so i ignored it...well, yesterday, i noticed that the part of the computer which goes around the keyboard was coming apart, and the charger wouldn't click into the port...when i took the laptop in to a "geek" today he told me that he had never seen anything like this before...he told me that the port had been pushed in somehow, and that the charger wouldn't stay in...he pulled the port out with pliers and connected the charger, but said that i wouldn't be able to disconnect it any more if i wanted it to be able to continue to charge..

so now i have a laptop that has to stay plugged in, with a keyboard that's coming apart...no clue about where to go from here!! any suggestions?

RE: keyboard coming apart!!

your geek wasn't very experienced. we see this kind of thing all the time. The machine has probably been dropped and landed on the plug
