Dell XPS M1330 doesn't recognize original power cord after 2 yrs

\015 Dell XPS M1330 doesn't recognize original power cord and charge. Stuck at 84%. This appears to be a frequent problem with Dell. Mine just hit two years and all they'll do is send me another cord which I doubt is going to fix the problem. All I got was a sales pitch for a new battery at my expense from their 'technical' staff.\015

Answers :

Check your mains adapter plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced.

\015\012If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

My Dell Dimension 5000 is stuck with a solid amber light on the power switch and solid amber light on the motherboard. Switch 'clicks' ok but light only goes out when power lead removed. No fan, no bleeps, no bootup, just solid lights. The 5000 doesn't have other LED lights to assist. The PC got into this state after local power cut, when power returned. I've changed psu today -- exact same condition. Any advice would be appreciated
