Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

I have a Laptop, Dell Inspirion 9100. Recently it

\015 I have a Laptop, Dell Inspirion 9100. Recently it has shut off automatically. After some testing, it seems to happen with the power cord. Either the AC cord is shorting or the Computer is shorting out. Once it shuts off, if you push the power button to start it again, the lights will come on, but the screen will not. Then the system lights go out again.\015

Answers :

The power cord often has a broken wire right at the little plug that connects to the computer ..that will cause your symptoms .. also will prevent charging of the battery .. when people wiggle that plug around a lot they sometimes break a solder connection inside the computer (dont do that) .. .. you can gently push the wire into the connector to see if you can reestablish the connections between the broken wire .. if you do you will be able to boot the computer .. thats of course a temporary test .. but if that works then you need a new power adapter .. or if you can find someone that can solder on a new tip to that power adapter then thats what i usually do .. they do have to know what they are doing though .. if they switch the wires they can damage the computer ..and you have to have the correct tip.
\015\012if you could charge your batttery in someone elses inspirion 9100, then you will likely find your computer working again until the battery runs down ..
I would suggest testing your laptop with another adapter, first. Then you'll know whether to replace the adapter, which is priced around $50.
