Battery wont charge unless I jiggle the cord - Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook


Answers :

Sounds like a new power cord or power cord connector is required on the laptop, or both. It may also be a damged cord so check for any obvious kinks, cuts, crush marks etc and replace the cord if necessary.
Hi,

This is due to a faulty cord or a damaged power inlet on the motherboard. Hope for your part it is the cord. Try a new power cord and if it doesn't work I'm afraid you might have to replace your motherboard...

Cheers
