Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
Laptop goes black randomly
\015 I've already removed the battery bar from the back of my laptop (Gateway M-285-E) and use just the AC to power it (thanks to a guy who gave me that fix when I couldn't get the thing to work at all), then it began to just shut down - go black, seemingly randomly, until I figured out that I have a bad power cord and it has to be just so for the power to get through. Sigh - what next?!? I really don't need help, but thought this info may be of some help to anyone else experiencing these same problems.\015
First is the power cord, next is the pin in the dc jack , if it moves just a tiny bit , jack needs to be replaced

The emachine laptop I'm trying to fix is an E625. When it tries to boot up, after timing out, it turns the screen black and puts a disk ''read error'' message in the upper left corner of the screen. If I try to boot from a CD, the CD drive is not recognized. I assume the phoenix bios is set to go to the hard drive first. If I do an F-2, it goes to a password request before it will open the bios. Neither I, nor the owner know what that password is. I tried to open the laptop to remove the bios
