Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook ?

No power from adapter

\015 My computer no longer gets power from my ac adapter. The green led on the adapter IS lit up, and it's plugged in. I suspect that it's the power port on my laptop? I need to replace this part probably... Anyone have any troubleshooting suggestions? It is NOT the battery, I just bought a new one. Besides, I took out the battery and left the power cord in, and it still wouldn't get power. Thanks!\015

Answers :

It sounds like the power jack is bad. If this is still under warranty - Dell would replace the motherboard. If this is no longer under warranty you can replace the power jack:
