Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Laptop AC Adaptor

\015 When i plug the AC adaptor into the laptop to charge the battery the light on the AC Adaptor turns off, when i take the AC Adaptor out the light comes back on.\015

Answers :

If the light is going out whenever you plug the Ac adapter in you most likely have a short in the laptop. The most likely culprits are a failed battery or a damaged AC port. Remove the battery and AC the use a pen or pocket knife to wiggle the pin in the center of the AC port. If it is solid, it's probably good, if it wiggles it's likely broken(may need a pro for this repair).

\015\012Assuming it's ok, leave the battery out and try plugging the AC back in. If the light goes out the problem is likely on the motherboard and may need a pro. If the light on the AC pack stays on turn on the laptop, if that works the battery is the problem, you can purchase a new battery.
