Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook
So I came home today and plugged in my old Dell Inspiron B130 laptop, but when the laptop powered on, I noticed that it was still running off battery power. Oddly, the LED on the adapter showed that there was still a current running through it, and I also noticed the power supply was making a strange high-pitched squeal. I opened the adapter up and found that one ceramic capacitator was cracked, which I promptly replaced -- yet the problem persists. I could be wrong, but it seems as if the sound is coming either from the large transformer or one of two capacitators next to it. I have enough skill with a soldering gun and electrical componenh to probably be able to replace it, if just a few people, perhaps,d a bit of light on what's the trouble here.... any assistance would be extremely appreciated.
Your DC jack is loose on the motherboard. You can probably get by with desoldering it and resoldering it back on. But if it is damaged in anyway you will have to replace it. You can find them on ebay for around 5 bucks. If you need step by step directions, feel free to let me know and I'll guide you through it.
