Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1405 Notebook ?

My laptop has stopped charging the battery.

\015 I seem to remember running into this problem before with an old Compaq laptop but it was under warranty. \302\240In this case I have gone through a number of power adapters (the Dell adapters continue to fray and fall apart) and now my laptop has completely stopped charging the battery. \302\240The adapter still appears to be working in this case with no damage visibile. \302\240I heard the "glue" can heat and release the adapter (female end inside the computer) and allow it to move away from the case preventing a good connection. \302\240I am not sure if this is the problem here as the connector has not separated and upon tearing down the system, it appears to be in the right place and still able to connect to the adapter. \302\240Am I going to need to get a new motherboard, or is there another solution? \302\240The cost of a new motherboard would basically total out the system as a net netbook is roughly the same cost.\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance!\015
