After few years of use, the dc jack on my Y410 finally came loose. I tried to continue to use it by opening up the back and push the loose jack outward while plugging in the power, and that worked for a few weeks. Now, I can see one of two cables that used to connect to the jack is completely detached.
So I guess my question is ... am I assuming correctly that if I just connect the loose cable, I can at least get the laptop to continue to function. Or, as I've been reading almost everywhere that I should either try to (get someone to, at least) replace the motherboard or solder the jack back onto the mother board?
Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

the jack is a detachable unit, so it attaches to the motherboard through the two wires, which you can remove and replace, if they are broken.
I think the Y410 is made by ASUS, as they seem to use the same adapter.
