Batteries get old and wear out. Be use AC outlet is working. Check for power light on AC/DC charger box between laptop and AC.

It is common for Laptop charging/power connectors to get worn and/or loose(intermittent). Try to get charging light on PC by wiggling power connection to PC.

If not, if you have a VoltOhmMeter(VOM). check for 5V on barrel power connector on the charger side, that plugs into PC, Outside conductor is GND and Inner connector is (+5V). VOMs are cheap at RadioShack or AutoParts stores and are a handy tool to have around the house. Book shows you how to measure. PC is 120V AC on Wall side of PC Power Supply from Wall Outlet, and 5V DC on PC side of Charger.

Charger may be defective. Cheap on Ebay.

Laptop will not charge, lead/cable is fine, i think there is something wrong with the port the lead goes into. Before it stopped charging completely the charge light was flickering indicating charging was...


This sounds like the power jack is damaged, which is a common fault, it will most likely mean the complete removal of the motherboard if you say what model the laptop is I might be able to write you a strip down procedure.
It is simple enough to solder in a new power jack it’s getting at it.
You should be able to get a replacement for about £3.

Try taking the battery out for 30 secs or so and then replacing it. You'll find a couple of locks on the bottom of the laptop that will release it.
