Question about Computers & Internet
I plug it in but it does not start charging. If I wiggle the cord at the plug in area in the back of my laptop, sometimes it tries to start charging but the light immediatly goes out. I bought a new cord and charger but the same thing happens. Do I have to get a whole new motherboard and if so, I have one in an old Toshiba - Model M45-5169. Would they interchange?
Your Power jack has either cracked the motherboard or the solder connection. This is what you are looking to replace....
And it located like this on the motherboard....
If you are good at soldering and de-soldering.... a repair can be made in-house.
The actual jack is about $15USD.
To have it repaired by a technician is approximately $150USD. Most of the $$ is for labor in disassembling the entire laptop to get at it.
Motherboards do not interchange, unless they are of the same model#.
Hope this helps.
PS - I have personally used the LAPTOP GUY for this exact repair because I didnt want the bother of taking the entire thing apart, and have extra pieces at the end. They charge an upfront diagnostic fee and that is taken off the repair - if you have them do it. Free postage in a box they supply too!
