Hard wire is not recommended.

If you are confident in opening a notebook up and working on a highly populated component motherboard with a fine tipped soldering iron then it is a task that some people may do themselves.

An easy way to get the socket is to take your AC adaptor to a good electronics component store (even radio shack, the source, Tandy, etc may carry one)

There may be some VERY fine tracks around the power socket and damaging those with the incorrect equipment may cause you a more expensive repair.

This site has some very helpful hints and guides about working inside laptops. this may help you decide if you want to do it yourself or get it done by a pro.

These are not expensive repairs

XPS M1210 Laptop not powering up


No Power Issues on Laptops

There are 3 things to consider in order for you to determine a No Power Issue

1. Battery
2. Mother Board
3. AC Adapter


1. Remove the battery from the laptop

2. Disconnect all non essential cables (external hard drive, usb memory key, printer...etc.)just connect the AC Adapter

3. Take out the Battery....Usually there is a battery indicator that you can push at the back of the battery

4. By Now the battery power indicator should be full since it was never taken out

5. If still theres no light on the battery.... replace battery

6. Turn the laptop on without the battery

7. If the computer still did not turned on check the AC Adapter if there is light coming out

8. If there's no light that comes out from the AC Adapter. Reseat the cable from the AC Adapter to the Cord

9. Check if there is no light that comes out from the AC Adapter. AC adapter needs to be replaced

10. Otherwise the Mother Board needs replacing

Troubleshooting Laptop Power Failures - The AC Adapter


Symptom:

Wiggling the AC adapter cord causes the power status LED on the laptop to blink.


Diagnosis & Solution:

The problem could be that the copper wires inside the AC adapter cord became frayed or broken right where they enter the connector on the end of the AC adapter cord. The wires (a number of very thin conductors twisted into a heavier cable) are sized for the amount of power the laptop requires. As thin wires break and lose contact, all of the power must flow through the remaining conductors, leading to overheating, which can cause damage or be a safety hazard.

To make sure that this is the case, first test the output voltage from the connector on the end of the AC adapter cord using a digital multimeter set to measure DC voltage. While measuring, bend the AC adapter cord in various directions. If this causes the reading to jump betwwen zero & the nominal output voltage (written on the label on the AC adapter), then you know that you will need to replace the connector.

In order to get this fixed, you will need a new connector and basic soldering skills, or you can take it to an electronics shop for a cheap repair but get the price before agreeing. If you decide to repair it yourself, then you will have to find a replacement connector. Most of these connectors are easy to find and your local Radio Shack often has them in stock. Just bring your laptop along to make sure you get the right size. However, some laptops use a highly proprietary connector for which you can't easily find a replacement, in which case your best option is to find a failed AC adapter for your laptop model, cut the end off (with plenty of slack) and splice it onto your AC adapter's cable.

If you work on irregular surfaces (like a lap) and allow the cord to dangle, the wires may break just inside the connector due to pulling, despite the fact that the factory connector is encapsulated in molded plastic. You can carefully take apart the molded plastic with a razor knife to temporarily fix a connection, but it's smarter to replace the connector end as soon as you determine it is causing intermittent power failures.

Another possibility might be that the power receptacle in the laptop (where you plug the AC adapter cord) has failed. Sometimes the center pin of the connector breaks off, sometimes the solder joints on the main board fail, sometimes there's a break between the connector contacts and the motherboard contacts. In all these instances, you or the technician has to gain clear access to the laptop's motherboard to make the repair. In order to get this done, you might need clear disassembly instructions, as well as decent soldering skills. You could get a replacement connector usually for less than $10, but the repair charge can be several hundred dollars for some models if you take it to a local shop.

I have a toshiba LT a205; the LED flashes 6x; what does that mean? the psu is rated at 19vdc, and puts out 18.5 vdc. The end of the power connector that goes to the mb only has 0.5 vdc on it, so I'm...


19volts is a nominal value. The AC Adapter will be fine from 18 volts up to 20volts because the power unit on the motherboard regulates the voltages very accurately.
You say you only have 0,5volts on the Mother Board power input. There's your fault. Between the Mother Board socket and the AC Adapter.
Replace the AC Adapter or Laptop Connection lead if you mean there is 0.5volts actually on the Mother Board but full oiutput from the Adapter.

If a PC suddenly fails to boot properly, you should perform a hard reset as the first action. Performing the hard reset will correct many problems. If the computer still does not start properly, select your symptom from the list below to guide you to the recommended corrective actions.
  1. Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices and SD media cards. You want to test the computer not the accessories!
  2. Disconnect the AC power adapter, remove the battery, and then press and hold the power button for at least 15 seconds to drain all residual power and restore default startup settings.
  3. Reconnect the AC power adapter (but do not insert the battery), Press the Power button, Look for glowing LEDs near caps lock and num lock keys, and Listen for sounds of a fan or other moving parts turning.
  4. If the computer does not start, the LED lights do not glow, and the display is black, you can perform one or more of the following actions to resolve the no power issue.
    • Verify the computer is receiving power from the AC adapter . Verify that the AC adapter is not damaged and is connected correctly to a working wall outlet plug. Verify AC power is connected to the system board by examining the AC adapter, wiring, and pin connection for damage. The keyboard LEDs will glow when AC power is connected to the system board. Damaged components, like the AC adapter or the pin in the power connector, may require an HP-certified repair.
    • Use a different AC power adapter . If you have access to a different AC adapter or power pack that is designed for the computer, connect it to the notebook and try to start the computer. If you own or have access to more than one notebook, verify that you are using the adapter which belongs to the notebook. CAUTION: Using a power adapter that does not meet the power requirements or has the wrong type of connector may damage the computer. On newer notebook models, connecting the wrong adapter to the notebook may cause the power LED lights to blink but not power the computer.
    • Remove the battery and boot on AC power only . A discharged or defective battery may prevent the AC adapter from supplying enough power to start the computer. To verify that power from the AC adapter is available for PC; remove the battery, connect AC power adapter, and press power button. If available, try using a different AC adapter, that is rated for the PC, and repeat this test.
    • Remove the AC adapter and boot on battery power only . A defective AC adapter may not charge the battery and prevent the computer from booting on battery power only. To verify battery power available for the PC; connect AC power adapter, allow battery to charge for 30 minutes or more, disconnect the power adapter and press power button. If available, try using a fully charged battery, of the same type, from another computer and repeat this test.
      • If LEDS do not glow and the fan or hard drive do not spin, battery may need to be replaced.
      • If tests of both the battery and the AC adapter fail, there may be a problem with system board requiring service by HP.
      • If LEDs glow and PC boots, the AC adapter may need to be replaced.
      • If LEDs glow, but PC does not boot go to LEDs glow, fan is heard, but display is black or blank section.

It looks like the battery it is not getting charged, even after several hours connect to the outlet. The led on the side turns fast from green to red and vice versa.


Could be the issue with AC adapter pin or with the jack of the notebook where you connect the charger. So once wiggle and hold the connector until you get the blue light.

Check whether the AC adapter brick is getting warm or not.

If it is not getting warm replace the ac adapter.

If it is getting warm wiggle the charger at the port and if you are able to charge then send the notebook for service to replace the DC jack .

If all the components ( ac adapter pin, mother board jack) change the battery and check with another laptop.

This is a common problem, these adapter go faulty all the time, you need to test with a meter, or get a replacement Power Adapter... You need to take out battery and plug in adapter all laptops should work, with just the Power Adapter connected, if it doesn't then it is faulty.. well that OR laptop.. When you get a new charger you will need to leave charging at least overnight to recharge the battery.

My lap top computer (Dell) . The hookup to the electricity is broken off . The little prong that sticks out for you to hook up to is broken off inside the computer on the mother board


This will require attention from a technician that can disassemble your notebook and replace the power connector. Contact Dell or a reputable local computer repair shop. Most likely, you will receive faster and more affordable service from the local shop.

Hope this helps.

Laptop does not work with AC adaptor, does not charge. Mother board issue


You may be able to get a battery charger but its rare.

If you do wish to use the AC adapter, take care with positive and negative. Also the voltage of the battery is actually lower than the AC adapter in order to get charged. I don't know what is going to happen if you do choose to use AC adapter as battery. 75% chance that it will work.

Good luck!
