Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1420 Notebook ?

Power supply seems to be dead. Does not power the computer or recharge battery. Have had new computer 8 months.


Answers :

Hey. My guess is a bad Battery charge terminal, or a screwed up motherboard. Try plugging it in and bending it in all sorts of ways near the jack. If the power flakes in and out, you know its your battery terminal. (you can open her up and replace this, but dont reccomend it). But ya, have Dell fix it i you can.
Call Dell you probably still under warranty.
