The repair shop should only need the make/model of the laptop. At most, they will need to see the laptop to know what you need.

The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.

Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.
Hope this helps.

My IBM T20 won't start up, i tried to place the AC adapter but it is not charging. when I pressed the turn on button, not even a light is flashing. what should I do.

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

best way is to just try out the battery on another laptop, or try another battery on yours. If the laptop is not very old, and I suppose yours isn't more than 2 years old, your battery shouldn't be dead.

I have a compaq presario 700 laptop that is no longer charging.

The notebook battery may have a defect if it will not power on the notebook and if it will not hold a charge. The battery indicator light on the notebook either does not light or always blinks orange. The notebook operates correctly when connected to the AC adapter.
A battery that will not charge may be the result of an AC adapter failure, a system board failure, or a battery failure. Perform the steps below to diagnose the failure.
Troubleshoot the power supply
To verify that the AC power supply is functioning properly, follow the steps below.

Plug the AC adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet, and plug connector into the computer. Do not plug into a power strip, surge protector or secondary power source.
Verify the following operation and take the appropriate action:
That all power cord connections are secure.
If the AC adapter connection to the notebook is loose, the connector may be damaged and require repair. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
That the power button or power LED is lit when the computer is on.
That an LED on the AC power supply adapter is lit when plugged into an AC wall outlet (not available on all AC power supply adapters).
That the AC power supply adapter is the correct type.
Different notebook models require different AC power supply adapters. You will need to know the Product Number of your notebook to determine the Part Number of the replacement part. Click Start > HP Help & Support to view the product name, product number, and serial number that you'll need to have to speak with HP Customer Service.
View the See Also section for information about locating HP Help & Support in your operating system.

Troubleshoot the System Board
If you've verified that the AC power functions properly, troubleshoot the PC's system board by following the steps below.

Remove the battery, and keep the notebook connected to AC power.
Press and release the Power button to start the computer.
If the notebook PC powers on , then the AC adapter and system board are functioning properly. Go to Troubleshoot the battery .
If the Power LED is off , then the AC power adapter needs to be replaced. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance.
If the power LED is on , but the notebook PC does not power on, then the notebook PC needs to be repaired. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance.
Shut down Windows by selecting Shut Down from the Start Menu.

Troubleshoot the battery
If you have verified the AC power supply and system board are functioning correctly, troubleshoot the battery by following the steps below.

Insert the battery into the battery compartment on the bottom of the notebook PC.
Connect the AC power supply and allow the battery to charge for 15 to 30 minutes.
NOTE: The Battery Charging light should be on while the battery is charging. If it is not on, check the AC power adapter connection to the notebook PC.
Unplug the AC power adapter cord from the notebook PC.
Press and release the Power button to start the computer using only the battery as the power source.
If the PC does not power on, then the battery needs to be replaced. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
If the notebook PC does power on, the battery is functioning properly.
NOTE: If you have purchased a second battery for your notebook PC or you have access to an identical battery, you can also check the battery by inserting the second battery into the PC and performing the Troubleshoot the battery steps again.

How to fix Power Adapter

Does your adaptor geting warmer when plugged to power outlet for some time (minutes)?

If not, than there are two possible solutions:
First (the easiest) thing is to check if both wires are not cut or short (one that you connect to power outlet, and the other one you connect to your laptop). You'll need some multimer to do this.
Most possible is that you'll need to open the power adaptor to do these checks.

Second thing is to locate and check the Fuse. Most of the adaptors have a Fuse inside.

If the fuse is OK, the wires are also OK, and the adaptor is getting warmer (or not), than you should buy a new power adaptor.
My experiance sais, not to belive much to repaired laptop adaptors (you don;t say what laptop you have).
Also, do not ask for substitute (cheap) adaptor!
Find an original one!
Most important is the following:

Please note that you should't try to do these checks, if you don't feel you are enough qualified. You should ask some friend of your's or some service. It should't cost you much !

Also, if you try to do this by yourself, be EXTREMELY carefull when adaptor is open. DO NOT PLUG it to power outled !!!
You might be killed !!!

Hi there.
The laptop has to be taken apart and a new power supply adapter that fits that model soldered on to the motherboard, you will also have to order the replacement parts first.
The keyboard will probably need replacing, the part number is underneath the keyboard so you will have to remove the keyboard to view it. You can get a power adapter socket from sites like ebay, you will have to search for this part by laptop make and model and is fairly inexpensive to purchase.
Replacing these components will give the laptop new life so if your confident with a soldering iron and know what to do around a laptop motherboard you know what parts to chase.
If you feel your not that confident, you have the option of phoning a reputable PC repair shop and ask them if they can do the repair on the power adapter instead of buying a replacement motherboard, if they can have it repaired by them and also maybe they can do you a deal on a replacement keyboard.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Power plugin in back of m65

In laptops they consider it the power supply, because they usually replace the whole unit, you can probably find a new pin, just the broken one, at an electronics store such as Radio Shack/ Source by Cirquit City, and solder it to the board. Be aware it is quite difficult servicing a laptop and if you are not adept at electrical service you may severely damage the unit, in this case I would take it to a service shop.
