Open it up and remove the DC-IN port. Pull the center brace on the back of the DC-IN port out slightly. This will allow access to the broken pin.

Power off and battery removed. I would screw a small screw into the part stuck in the computer and then remove it carefully with a pair of pliers pulling on the screw head. Good luck.
