Hi my laptop has been pretty bad with its power outlet isn´t connecting i need to push in the cord just to get power but i was wondering if i could buy a dock station for my laptop and the problem is over with its a european laptop and im in canada so its going to expensive to fix here so i was just thinking if a dock station could help its a hp pavilion dv6000 little over year old
You need to check the plug that plugs into the laptop to determine that you don't have a faulty lead or plug. Test it with a multimeter and wriggle the plug to see if the voltage reading remains steady. If it doesn't then it could be the lead and this is easily repaired.
You may be able to borrow an adapter to test your laptop's connector.
If you determine the fault is with the laptop then problem is most likely the connector socket on the laptop, it most likely need re-soldering onto the motherboard, or needs to be replaced. This requires the laptop to be dismantled completely.
A docking station would solve your problem because the docking station has its own power connector and you plug the existing power adapter into the docking station.
My HP is connected to a docking station, the other advantage is that the docking station has several more ports than the laptop which is useful.
