My laptop isn't charging, i think d charger is faulty. how do i find confirm??


Answers :

It's either the charger or the battery. Remove the battery, and try to run with only AC power. If it won't start, it's the charger.

If the charger is faulty, you are going to have to get a new one from the manufacturer (for free if the laptop is under warranty, otherwise it'll cost a bit) .

I have a Dell 9300 and bought a new battery and power cord a few weeks ago. Now it won't charge or stay charged even a few minutes. It seems like the cord connection is not staying in the port.
