Question about Computers & Internet
When i turn on my computer, it goes through the powerup but then there's a message stating that my battery is low and that i should connect my computer to a power source. the problem is that it is already connected to wall power. When i turn the computer off, the battery charges and it lasts for a little while (with the comp plugged to the wall) but then it shuts down after another message stating that my battery is at critical level appears. when i say shut down, it just turns off. it doesn't go through the power down process. I switched out the ac adapter but it still does the same thing. The computer is 4-6 years old. it has the same battery and on some days, it decides to work on other days, it doesn't. I took the battery out and just tried to run the computer off the wall power but it won't even turn on.
The DC jack inside the laptop may have a cold solder joint around it or it may be loose all together. When you plug it in watch the charge light on the laptop and wiggle the plug in the jack. If it cuts on and off (the charge light) then the jack is at fault. Also the wires coming from the charger itself could be twisted enough to break inside the insulation. try wiggling the cord as well looking at the charge light.
