I have an Acer Aspire 7736z which wont charge. Ive already found that the battery connector/battery pin/battery port whichever youd like to call it has snapped off. Any information on how to fix it? where...


DC Jack diagnosis:
1. Test power adapter for output voltage. Bend the power cable in various directions while doing this to be sure that there is no broken conductors in the cable.
2. If power adapter is Ok, connect it & see if the power LED on the laptop will glow when you jiggle the power connector in various directions. If yes, then the DC jack might be loose or damaged, & need to be either re-soldered or replaced.
3. If not, then disassemble the laptop. Remove any components that attach to the laptop's motherboard first (e.g. battery, hard drive, RAM, wireless card, optical drive, ... etc.)
4. Next, remove the keyboard & the LCD screen.
5. Finally, unscrew all screws that hold the upper cover & lower cover together so that you could gain access to the motherboard.
6. Inspect the solder points connecting the DC jack to the motherboard. Make sure that none of them is loose. If any, re-solder them.
7. Inspect the center pin in the DC jack. Make sure that it is not broken or loose. If it is, then you might need to replace the DC jack.
8. When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.

Connector not allowing charger to charge battery, loose in back of lap top


This will require either the replacement of the power connection by a competent board repair service or replacement of the motherboard

My acer aspire 1360 wont turn on when i power up al;l i get is a black screen, the motherboard light flashes once and then goes off leaving only the power light on please help!!


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately.

Gateway laptop battery ran down and now wont' start up with it plugged in


Take out the battery and put it back in. Plug in the charger and start your computer. This should fix it. It happens when the battery runs down too much.

Power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I


On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

I have a Gateway W340UI. powercord connection


When you wriggle the plug in the power socket on the laptop and the charge LED flashes and in the right position it charges, this indicates that the power socket is faulty or there is a dry solder joint on the motherboard where this power socket is attached.
To get at the power socket will require dismantling the laptop completely. A computer repair shop can do the repair, I suggest you get a quote first.

Wont turn on


This is a result of a broken power supply connector. Where you plug your power adapter cable into the laptop is a small soldered block connector inside. Over time, if not careful, this can become loose and disconnected from the motherboard, causing a loose connection. The smell you experienced was from the partial contact from the power connector to the motherboard. It arced and most likely shorted the contacts, as they separated. Now, your power supply connection to the laptop is not working anymore, and thus, you have no charge or power to your laptop. It gets worse, unfortunately. You need to find an experienced person that knows how to solder contacts on circuit boards to repair it, or bring it to a place that does component repairs on computers. The charge will be from $150-$175 usually for this service, but will fix your problem I am confident. Sorry for the bad news...atleast you know what to do to fix your problem.
