Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook
I am having two problems with this machine. First, my power cord will no longer stay put. I have seen this problem with other laptops to the point where they became unusable. I can get my power cord into the port and it will rest there but with the slightest movement or tug out it goes. I am now using wall tack around the port to try and keep it plugged in but I know this will not work forever. Is there anything else I can do?
Second my backspace key has come off. I spent some time trying to put it back on. I can't seem to get the plastic U and O peice to fit. I have also lost the rubber bit that sits on the sensor.
Thank you for any help/sugestions
With your first problem: If the power cord is not damaged, it is most likely the DC jack in the computer is damaged. A new one can be soldered on the motherboard in most cases. It's a 50/50 chance that it will work though. The second problem: The only fix I can offer is to purchase a new keyboard for the laptop and replace it. Hope this helps.
