Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Sony Vaio pcg-k35 battery won't charge. The pc says its charging at 57% but it never does. PC won't run on battery alone even when it says 57%. I have tried 2 new batteries and both ran on the new battery until it went under 60% then it wouldn't charge after that. Can anyone help?


Answers :

You may notice the "jack" inside the laptop is "looser" than it once was, you may be able to carefully adjust it until it starts charging, if that is indeed the case, the motherboard has to be repaired or replaced in order to charge the batteries, I have repaired several of these by resoldering a replacement jack on the board, but there is a possibillity of "Burning" the board when that repair isn't done carefully
