Question about Acer Extensa 4620 Notebook
I have replaced the battery on my acer extensa laptop but it will not charge. Could the power supply cord be bad?
Its possible, do you know anyone with the same make of lapop? if you do try their adapter, but check the input voltage of you laptop (written on the bottom label, or right next to the input) and the voltage of the power supply (on the label of the power supply) before plugging it in. The vast majority of laptops are 19v but it will damage your battery if the voltage is incorrect.
If you dont then you can pick up a laptop charger on ebay with multiple ends on ebay for about £15. They obviously carry no garuntee and you run a small risk of getting a dodjy one but they are much cheaper than the £60 or so your laptop manufacturer will charge.
And you havn't wasted your money on a new battery, they are always useful, you old battery will eventually give up anyway!

It could be the power cord if without the battery the laptop will not power up with the cord.
However, if it does power on, the power cord is fine and it could be a motherboard problem

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.

If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it
