as the other poster has posted most of the ports are solider onto the mb. some thing to check before you run to the repair shop.
is if mom and dad bought the unit did they uses a credit card. some cards will 2x the warranty.other times mom and dad if bought from best buys will buy the extended warranty.if they did just tell them the port snapped in your hand.most techs and company know this and the power port get broken the most.also ask mom and dad if they got an extended warranty from the vendor (dell/hp/toshbia/apple). all sell them. if it an apple product you can try calling apple 800 help number and see if they give you a one time special case number.
