Re: Can I fix this???

if that is the case, then there is indeed a short on the ac port (thats where you plug in the charger.) that's the reason why the charger light goes off as soon as you plug it in to the back of the computer. I know its gonna cost you a lot since the only way if fixing this is to replace the motherboard. if its gonna cost you $500 + then better buy a new one. they're gonna replace it with a refurbished motherboard anyways.

Hope this helps.

The ac port in my dell inspiron is broken so the charger pin isn't connecting to it and the laptop wont turn on because the battery is dead and i cant bother to buy a new solder cause im not from

A) You don't want to take the laptop apart.

B) You don't have the money to have it repaired.

C) Keep going like you are with fiddling with it, and you'll smoke the AC adapter (Charger), and Power MOSFET's on the motherboard.

What !O_O! sort of 'miracle cure' are you expecting?

If you wish to correctly repair the laptop, this is the place.

Rig it so it works temporarily, and maybe permanently damages it?

Suggest go to another website.

Charger Board

You're going to need one of these, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source,

Doesn't have to be from that store. It's just an example.
Average cost is $3 to $6.

I'll step by step you through it.

Plug in ac adaptor to Dell inspiron 600m and does

Sounds like you have a broken DC Power jack. This is where the small socket where you attach the AC adaptor breaks loose from the motherboard , resulting in the laptop not charging properly or at all . If you have to wiggle the power jack to get a connection then this is definately theproblem.

Most computer reapir shops can do this for about $100. Or if your handy with a soldering iron and dont mind disassembling the laptop , you can always buy a new DC jack for your make and model off ebay and try to solder it yourself!

Hey i had my dell inspiron 1525 for quite a while and now the charger stopped working for some reason. i need help

The charging circuit requires an ac adapter with an intact sensing pin in the center of the Adapter barrel plug that connects to the computer. If the pin is bent or broken, the charger is disabled.
If possible, try a known good adapter from another D or E Series Dell Portable. If a KG adapter charges the battery, replace the adapter. If it makes no difference, then replace the motherboard

Laptop will not turn on when i press the on

Normally, if the LCDs light momentarily and go off, then the system is not getting power from the AC adapter (Even if the light is on on the brick)
  1. If another Dell D-Series AC adapter is available, try it. if not check the output for the plug to the system for 19 volts DC, if no voltage, replace the adapter.
  2. Check the connection on the system for cracks or loose connection to the motherboard. If the connector is damaged, then the jack or the motherboard will need replacement
  3. If the system will not power on with a known good battery or AC adapter, then try these steps.

Battery not recognized Pavillion zx5000

A $150 dollar or so MB on EBay should resolve the issue. I know this is a pain, but there is an apparent issue in the charger curcuit

Loose connection - won't charge

If the pin is cracked or broken, you'll need a new motherboard. Same issue on a friends Toshiba Laptop.

The little green light on charger goes off when i plug it into Dell Inspiron 6400, the charger works fine

Unplug the battery from the laptop and then plug the AC adaptor into the laptop. If the green light still goes off then your motherboard is shorting out the adaptor and the motherboard needs to be replaced.
