Dell 2200 mouse pad connection to motherboard

I have a Dell 2200 and had to take it apart to fix the power cord connection. I am a rookie at this but managed to get it back together. My only problem is I could not remember where the mouse pad connection connected to the motherboard. Can anyone tell me how to reconnect my mouse pad?

Dell inspiron elec cord isn't firm so power turns off

Maybe it's the DC Jack that the power cord plugs into. If the jack is loose then you will experience the issue you are having.

Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

I spilled water on my dell laser mouse.I could not figure it out the write way to dis assemble it ? PLEASE HELP.

If you remove the pads under mouse, there are screws under. Remove all those and you should be able to open the mouse. Also I suggest you to keep everything apart and let the parts dry for some time before you try to use it again.

Intermittent power problem on Dell inspiron 2200

First check the plug on the end of the adapter with a multi-meter, The voltage on the plug should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the mains adapter. Also wriggle the wires on the plug to see if the voltage fluctuates, if so it could be a loose/broken wire on the plug.
When you jiggle 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.
When you remove the screws from the bottom of the laptop, take a note where the screws come from as the vary in length.

Exact same thing

Usually this means replacing the motherboard, but you could also have a bad power supply/charger. How old is the computer and is it still under warranty?
