Question about HP Pavilion ZV5340US Notebook
Im not sure if its the AC Adapter, the female jack inside the CPU, or the battery itself. I just learned that I should take out the battery and see what happens when I plug in the AC Adapter, ill do that later. The problem Im having is simple. WHen I plug in the ac adapter, I see the lightning icon. Then about 10 seconds later it disappears and the battery icon appears. I have to take the ac adapter out and put it back in. Sometimes the connection will last 5 seconds, sometimes a hour or so. How can I solve this problem.
Check on-board power supply, that produces 4 different DC voltages.

It could be the ac adapter or a faulty jack as you mention, caused by a lot of use and twisting which can damage connections to the motherboard
