Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook ?

Power port issues as well

\015 I have been "jiggling" my cord for months and i have now reached the point where i dont charge at all. Do i need to change out my motherboard??\015

Answers :

Must solder loose connect. Need you take it to good pc tech, or have steady and be electronically inclined.
\015\012But, first you check to see if adapter is fully working. The adapters have two current flows, is positive 19 volts, and negative -19 volt. One can die, and the other works. In my case, the 19v that powered my laptop worked. This happened to me twice.
\015\012The best way is to use multimeter but this involves taking the adapter apart. The easiest way is test it on another laptop that work correctly. Let the laptop powered by battery stay on for a couple of minutes then plug you adapter in, and if charge light blinks on your adapter is okay.
\015\012Laptop must almost completely taken apart, down to the motherboard and loose plug connection should carefully soldered.
