  i have an aging dell inspiron 9200 whose DVI video port saw so much
use recently (plugging and unplugging constantly) that i think it's
finally starting to self-destruct (just the port, not the entire
laptop).  anyone have some experience with perhaps repairing/replacing
that sort of thing that wants to take a crack at it?  or perhaps
testing that it's fine and the problem is elsewhere?

  the laptop isn't actually used for anything meaningful other than
having acted as a source for a WUXGA-res video signal so, if it can't
even do that anymore, it's kind of useless.

  recommendations?
