Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M1730 (N09X7304) PC Notebook
Originally, the system spontaneously shutdown. Would not restart. Unplugged ac adapter. Still nogo. Noticed when ac adapter plugged into wall, green light is on. Just as soon as ac adapter is plugged into dc power plug, the light on the ac adapter goes out. System would not boot on just the battery and with all the CRUs removed. Purchased refurbished board on e-bay. System functions now. Would like to repair the defective motherboard and keep as backup. Will a bad dc power plug cause this problem? How does one test this? Many people seem to be able to change a dc power plug; but, if there isn't any obvious damage, how does one test to verify that the component is bad? There are no obviouse burns or melted components on the board.
With the Dell laptops, if it were a broken power jack you would know by looking. It would show signs of missing/broken solder around the solder points. You could do a continuity test with a Volt/Ohm meter. However this would be tough with the barrel plug dell uses.
Now as far as getting someone to repair it for you. Iwould recommend a guy I use in florida. I originally found out about him on Ebay, he does a great job repairing motherboard issue (on the component level). He has ALL the proper equipment to ddo this. I have provided a link to his Ebay contact page. Send him an email, I am sure he can fix ya up.
