Power connector of T40 think pad loosen

\015 Intermitten ,can not charge the battery. Battery is good\015

Answers :

If you can't charge the battery and you know the battery is good, hook up just the ac adapter to verify that the laptop can turn on without the battery hooked up and if your laptop turns on then you know both are good.

At that point I would say since its not charging then it could be that the dc jack has some bad solder points on the bottom of it and need to be resoldered. Sometimes if the solder goes dry and cracks just a bit if can cause the adapter not to charge the battery.

If that doesnt fix the problem the the motheboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
