First is the ac adapter hard to tell if its working or not
even if green light is on, it could be the end that plugs into laptop

next is the dc jack , take a toothpick or something
and touch the pin inside the jack where you plug the adapter
if this moves just a bit, the pin is broke , a new dc jack is 5 bucks on ebay or more, but youll have to take apart to install new jack

I have XPS M1530 DELL Laptop. DC JACK(power charging port has broken from mother with a very small piece of mother board)....I had tried to call customer care ..he told you should change the motherboard...


If this motherboard is a multi-layer motherboard then it is impossible to repair.
You can try to repair the motherboard by glueing the broken piece onto the motherboard with epoxy glue. Then identify the broken power circuit tracks between both parts of the circuit board, and then solder wires across these tracks or to the closest solder connections to re-establish the electrical connections on the motherboard.
If this does not fix the problem then most likely it is a multi-layer motherboard and you cannot bridge the internal connection inside the motherboard.

Powerjack is loose when plugging in charger.no power,no lights battery can not be charged.


In order to fix this problem, you will have to fully disassemble your laptop to get access to the motherboard & the power jack. If the power jack is not broken but only loose, you can re-solder it to the motherboard. Otherwise, you will need to buy a replacement power jack (usually less than US$ 10), de-solder the broken power jack, & then solder in the new one.
When this is done, re-assemble back your laptop.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad.
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.

Power Board Problem and Power Button Hinges Top Cover broken


It would be cheaper to have the power board repaired but the replacement is around $55 from ebay. I'd get a new moulding for it if its available or even if you got somthing plastic welded up.

Labtop wont start up


Hi I am a laptop technician, and it sounds like you have a power problem.

Try removing the main battery and starting the laptop on the mains cable only. If the laptop starts fine then you probably have a problem with either the battery or the power board in the laptop.

If the laptop doesn't start when doing this, remove the mains power lead from the laptop and put the main battery back on the laptop. Try starting the laptop off the main battery only and if the laptop starts normally then you most likely have a broken/loose socket that the power lead plugs into in the back of the laptop (a very common problem) or the power board in the laptop is faulty. If the laptop doesn't start or goes off very shortly after pressing the power button it could just be that the battery is flat as a broken power socket on the laptop often stops the main battery from charging.

I hope this helps.
