The connector on the motherboard needs to be resoldered. This is a common problem that has to be fixed right away. The loose connection will arc inside the unit and eventually damage the motherboard. Unfortunatly the entire laptop has to be disassembled as the motherboard needs to be removed . The connector needs to be removed from the board and reinstalled.

Laptop won't charge


Step 1:
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

Inspiron 1525: "plugged in, not charging"


Not charging means the battery is not being charged. Batteries only have a useful life of so long, then they die and will not take a charge so you have to replace them.

If the laptop works fine when the power cord is plugged in, then just replace the battery. if the laptop does not work on the power cord, then you need to either replace the power cord or look to see if the DC Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop is broken or wiggles. When the DC Jack it bad the battery will not charge and eventually the laptop will not turn on if the power cord can't make the connection correctly.

Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.

Gateway MS2291 wont power up


Did you check the DC Jack where the Power Cord plugs into the laptop? If it is bad (wiggly or loose) then the laptop will not power on. Take an ink pen and put it where the power cord would plug into the laptop and see if the jack wiggles or is broken. If so, that's your problem.

The old power cord might be some good if the problem is with the DC Power Jack.

Bad power cord or bad connection on laptop?


Probably the DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugs into the computer. Take a ink pen and stick the tip in where the power cord goes to see if it wiggles. If so, that's your problem.

I am having charging problems, i can wiggle the cord and it will charge if I hold my thumb on it. I ordered a new cord and that didnt help at all


Ordering a new power adapter is not the solution, this is a common problem with all laptops.

The power connector that we wiggle actually shakes the power connector on the motherboard of the laptop and slowly disengages it from the motherboard hence it does not charge the battery under normal conditions. During initial stages wiggling the cable works, but later when the metal contacts go bad we are in trouble.

The actual solution to this is to replace the motherboard of the laptop or you can contact a local technician who can open your laptop and re-solder the power connector or connect a new power connector socket to your motherboard and solder it.

My laptop would not charge, after I held it up on one side, it began charging. What's going on?


You power cord connection is probably getting ready to go TILT on you. Take it to a LAPTOP repair company near your residence and have then check the soldier connections on the POWER CORD CONNECTION RECEPTICAL where it is attached to the Mother Board. This could save you a ton of money and maybe even your computer if the mother-board was to break totally. Some pressure, more than likely, has been applied to the Power Cord Connection in the Laptop. BE VERY CAREFUL. It could go at any time.....

Have a Gateway Laptop Computer Model #MT6708. Previously computer had blank screen and no power. Currently purchased new battery and power cord. Computer now operating screen and power is on. However, when...


First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

I can't actually solve this, but I have to wiggle my cord around to get it to "connect". I'm pretty sure my jack is loose, but haven't opened it up yet to check.

Laptop connection not charging battery also turns off from time to time.


Hello benno565, just the one's inside. This should give you a better connection (tighter), so the AC adapter is not too loose.
Think of things is this manner. You have a cable power cord that you plug into a wall outlet. You don't want to leave it plugged into the wall so you unplug it when your finished. Over time the power cord no longer fits tightly in the wall socket. So if you bend the power cable's prongs just a little bit (away from each other) the power cord has a tighter fit when plugged into the wall socket.
