Question about Computers & Internet
For ages my vaio would charge only if the charger was in a exact specific location. When this happened both the charger and the laptop got extremely hot. Also the charger did not fit into the socket at all and fell out at the slightest of movements. Another problem was that when the laptop did actually manage to charge it would take around 4 hours to reach 100% and 20 mins to completely deplete. Now, the laptop will not charge at all which is horrific as i am a student and all of my work is on it. how much about will it cost to fix? And how long should it take?
To be totally honest with you (as a repair technician), it sounds like you may need a new charger. It will be rather costly for you to take it to a repair place (unless it is under warranty) to have them fix it, because they are going to charge you anywhere from 25-75 dollars labor (depending on the difficulty of your problem) then charge you for parts (which again could be costly depending on what they have to replace). If I were you, I would consider cleaning the battery contacts with a pencil eraser first then replacing the batteries as this is the cheapest alternative and if that did not solve the problem then buy a new charger. Either way you will more than likely save money by purchasing new equipment vs paying someone to repair it. If you decide to purchase new equipment make absolutely sure that they are compatible with the system you have, because it should not fall out of the charger and it should not matter what position you have them in because everything should fit snuggly and properly.
If you do not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it, thanks. And please let me know if you need further assistance.
