    I wouldent recomend you to even try to raplace that. Take it to a pc-repaire shop and let them look at it, they will tell you the cost and then you can decide if its worth or not.



    It isent that easy to take a laptop apart, and in your case you need to separate the topshell from the bottomshell, thats not a job for someone who never done it before, belive me. Even if you manage to sepatere the shells you will have problem when you put them together again. Not worth it M8. Let the profesionals deal with it.



    Good luck

There are no internal power supplies in laptops. What has most likely happened is as your laptop fell it either landed on the part of the power cord that was sticking out the back/side of the computer or the tension was so great on the plug from it falling that the power supply connector on the motherboard has broken loose from the motherboard. I have seen this happen a lot. This is not a job for an amatuer. It takes someone with knowledge of laptop repair and motherboard repair. In your best case scenarios either the little strip that contains the power button has popped loose and is not making contact (seen this happen in one case) or the power supply adapter (not part of the laptop) has been damaged and torn some wires. In the first case just try to push that power button strip down on the laptop first to see if it will snap back in place. If you can find someone else that has the same adapter you can ask to borrow theirs for a few minutes. Medium case scenario is that it has broken the solder loose and just needs to be resoldered or a new power plug soldered in. Worst case scenario is that it has cracked the motherboard, which will be expensive to fix (it would have to be replaced). Continuing to try and use it in this state (unless it is the best case scenario) will further damage the motherboard as the electricity will start jumping to places it should not go and eventually destroy the motherboard.

Dell Inspiron 6000 (approx 4 years old) has an issue with the power cord internal connection? Battery and Power cord/adapter are fine. Computer constantly switches from battery to AC when powered on. ...


The input jack that is soldered to the motherboard (where the AC jack plugs in) probably has a cold solder joint. Thus the laptop switches from battery to AC power. You can try to have the solder joints
re-soldered.

Try to turn Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop and nothing happens. No lights, no sounds, nothing. Power chord is good and has output voltage of 19.5.


remove battery and then insert power cord and power it up. if it powers, then insert battery while laptop is on. otherwise, if it doesnt, get the battery charged from else where and insert it just to confirm that the power supply unit isnt spoilt.

My power cord not charging battery


you may have damaged the power input port.
broken solder joint. or your power supply took a dive. if you have a DMM 'meter' check the power supply to see if you are getting power from it.
if it is the power input port, you will have to either open up the laptop and see if it is a fixable soldering job or take it to a pro.
Happy Fixing =)

Power issue


Is the new power supply a Dell. Some aftermarket power supplies, especially Targus, will not charge the battery in a Dell. If it is a Dell supply, then it's one of two things. 1- the battery is shot and needs replacing. 2- the power management chip on the motherboard is shot and the motherboard needs replacing. If the battery light is flashing orange then the battery is shot. If the battery light is green, then go into the power settings and see if the machine shows that it is charging. If it doesn't show that it's charging then it's the pm chip.

You can also pick up the batteries less expensive than most computer places at batteries plus. And yes it sounds as though it is the batteries charge is getting low, especially if it runs fine when the battery is out and you have it plugged in.
