This will NOT remedy the issue unless you replace it with the updated fix as mentioned. Other than that you're just throwing money away.

They replaced mine with a new unit, then replaced all the parts one by one from the 'new' unit so essentially it's like a new computer, but the DC jack never be fix from Dell because it doesn't exist.

This happened with mine too but if you think about it, you started with a new computer and several months and replacements later you now have a refurbished/rebuilt one.  With the cost difference between buying one of these new and buying refurbished, this is one of the things that ticked me off the most.

Check eBay for a "Power Cord Tension Retainer" this will solve your problem.

<ADMIN NOTE: Profanity removed as per TOU>.Mine was bought used.  No service.  I was sitting here and the darned thing just slipped out on its own.  Sometimes I get annoyed.  So I took a moment with Google and here I am.   It is not very important.   I would like it fixed, but...  Velcro? OK.  Any other simple ideas would be welcome.
