Essentially you will need to disassemble the laptop almost down to the main board, desolder the bad jack and replace it then reassemble. I can't provide a step by step as there are very many steps. But will suggest that this will be an involved repair and if you aren't comfortable disassembling the laptop, have a repairman handle it. If you choose to forge ahead, take it slow and take lots of pictures as they can be helpful when it comes to reassembly.

Computer will not power on regardless of being plugged in or not, and overheats within just a few minutes


Hello.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Overheating can be caused by faulty memory or a faulty motherboard. Disconnect power, remove the battery and remove the memory cover. Remove all memory modules and insert one at a time to test. For motherboard issues, you'll need a local professional to resolve.

Hope this helps.

Hello.

Also, power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

For laptops, remove the heatsink and apply new thermal paste or the motherboard may need replacing.

Leave the power jack fix and heatsink application to an expert.

Hope this helps.
