Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook ?
It isnt charging
\015 My laptop charger recently died so i bought a new one which was simple enough and worked fine at first. now a few months on i doesnt charge unless i fiddle with the bit that connects to the computer...i know it sounds like a simple loose connection but this is how my first charger started to died. i wonder if anyone can give an any tips?thanks!\015
If the power connection is loose on the motherboard then you will either need to get the connector replaced (Many places advertize replacing the jack for around $100) or replace the motherboard. (Also around $100)
