Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Will not stay plugged in

\015 The A/C adapter will not stay plugged in and I will have to move it around at the port of the computer to get power flowing in the to pc. (note. I don't more the a/c adapter or the plug at the wall, just the a/c to pc port.) I think something has just got old and needs to be changed but I am not sure on the exact source of the problem\015

Answers :

You need to replace the dc jack. A local repair shop or someone from craigslist should be able to complete the repair for $100 and below. If you pay more you're getting ripped off. Also most shops don't carry all of the dc jacks in stock so I would make sure they order the jack first and then take your laptop in for service. That way you can still use it in the meantime. Just try to keep the wiggling to a minimum or else you'll damage your motherboad beyond repair.

HHHHHEEEELLLLPPP!!!!!!! Ok so I thought it wouldn't be a problem to install more RAM on my computer. lol it turns out I was obviously wrong. So  I plugged the cords back in inside the tower and outside. The PC instantly turned on when I plugged in the main power cord. That's obviously not right. Additionally, it appears as though there was nothing plugged in, the monitor stays blank- as though on standby, since the amber light stays on. Does anyone have any ideas? Please!
