Question about Dell XPS M1730 Laptop Computer PC Notebook
My power supply for my Dell M1730 suddenly stopped working today. The small blue light on my power supply is going on anymore and it is not sending any power through to my laptop. Unfortunately my laptop ran out of power before I found out what happened. A few days ago it wouldn't turn on but after shaking it a bit it started working again, I tried that again today and it didn't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.
