Default Repair required

Hi Been sent here by a chap better than I, to see if you might know of an answer;. I have a Lenovo lap top the power socket on the side of lap top that is broken.so I need a repair do not want to go to Currys
as any sort of clips might lead to them thinking I am doing things I should not. Which is not true but mud sticks even on glass.

Any thoughts do you know of any one?? please

I just typed "Lenovo broken power socket" in Bing and came up with at least 25 videos that show you step by step how to fix this , a few tools and you should be able to fix it yourself

As long as you have a password for your login there shouldn't be any problems bringing in your laptop for repair. they don't need to login into your account to fix a socket.

Also, people who repair computers are very discrete. or at least that is the impression they want you to have

Speaking as an ex-repair shop employee and then self-employed repair tech; that depends on what you have on your hdd... without a password. trust me, some things i've seen can't be unseen... and i don't mean in terms of lady customers naughty bits either....

Ditto the advice if you have a password, except for the fact they are relatively simple to bypass....

I would never ever give any of my devices to a repair shop. I would rather destroy them completely and buy something new. Even if that means forfeiting a warranty replacement.
I do not have anything illegal, but private things like passwords, emails, bank statements and medical records.

But I do not own expensive devices. If I had a valuable notebook where the disk cannot be removed I would encrypt the hard drive. These encryptions are usually safe enough.
Just a simple password to prevent the login does not provide security at all. The disks have to be encrypted.

I have had Lenovo laptops too &
#1 the hard drive is easy for you to remove. It has to be. Small plate w screw, tab to pull. Take it out before you give to shop. All your data, privacy, etc. If you are right diagnosis, socket or plug can be fixed by shop & hd has nothing to do with it. They can know if it's taking charge/power. You put the hd back in at home.
#2 need to replace cable (w transformer) very common & generic they are not too costly. I'm talking *bay in usa, can't know UK. If it's socket, more difficult. See U-tube as Sandy says. My guess w Lenovo laptop (not tablet)it is the cable/plug. Small wires inside break from flexing.
