Hopefully it's not like HP, who decided to solder the jack right to the motherboard and it's not a user job. In order to re-solder the jack, the laptop has to be taken completely apart. Not an easy job, even HP chooses to replace the motherboard rather than resolder. i had it done once, fortunately it was under warranty. There's a cottage industry of people who resolder HP jacks for a fraction of the price that HP charges, and you might find the same for Acer, google Acer jack repair and see.
