My packard bell has stoped charging
If your laptop has stopped charging and you've already replaced the AC adaptor, then most likely it's either the battery itself or the power port on your laptop. If the battery was fine up to that point then it's probably not the battery. To replace the power port can sometimes involve soldering the new port onto the motherboard of your laptop so it's usually best left to a professional. The port you can usually find on ebay. I've replaced a few that is just a small power board that plugs into the mainboard but other have to be soldered. It's not really hard to do, but it involves dismantling the whole laptop to gain access to the motherboard and sometimes requires soldering. Sometimes its very obvious and you can tell by trying to move the metal pin in the center of the plug on your laptop where it plugs in. If the center prong moves then it has become detached and must be replaced. If not it could also be a connection problem due to corossion. Without pulling it apart and looking at it, it can be hard to tell. Deptending on the extent of the work, it can cost from 50.00 - 200.00. I hope this helps.
