Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

My inspiron 6000's power flickers on and off intermittently, switching between A/C & battery power. I've replaced the power cord. Any other ideas?


Answers :

It's probably the contacts on the female receiving plug on the laptop - a rather complicated repair.

\015\012If the same problem persists with another power supply, that's almost certainly the problem. The solution, unfortunately is to replace the part on the motherboard, which will require exceptional soldering skills. Otherwise the whole ystem board must be replaced.
Hi,
\015\012The issue seems weither with DC in cable (cable from adaptor jack to motherboard) or with the adaptor so please try with any other adaptor.
