  8. [SOLVED] Can't plug in power cable

    I tried to plug it in but it just doesn't go in fully. I can only get it a little bit inside but the cable always hangs out a bit. I've tried it with force but I don't want to do it too hard or else it might break. What should I do? Do I need to do something else first to get it in?
