Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
When I plug in cord to laptop it seems to be loose inside the laptop
Charging adapter in laptop may need to be resoldered or replaced. Some of these are a plug in type and you may just have to super glue the plug back in place inside of laptop. The plastic tabs break after awhile

With no battery fitted to the Laptop and the power supply fitted and working o/k, the Laptop is dead. Could it be the convertor on the motherboard faulty , if so, can it be repaired.

Unplug the powercord and try to move around the DC-Jack with a small flatheat screwdriver. If the jack moves around freely or the middle pin has too much slack you most likely have a defective DC-Jack. You can replace it yourself there are guides online that show you how to do this. The repair takes about 2-3 hours. I work for a company called Laptop Repair NYC and we do this repair frequently.

You might be able to replace the jack easily enough. I am not sure what model you have, but some Compaq laptops have modular jacks, meaning they can be replaced instead of having to be repaired or having to replace the entire motherboard. I would recommend you do this or have someone qualified to do this beucase if you leave it as-is then you might burn something out on your Motherboard.

If I'm understanding you correctly, the wiggle is from the laptop. Sounds like a problem is about to happen. Your Presario has a loose power jack (connector inside the laptop). It is a part that can be replaced.
If you need further info, let us know.
Hope this helps.
