I had the same issue with a Gateway we use for streaming video to our TV. I actually sent it back to gateway as it was still under their 3 year warrenty buy some 2 or 3 weeks.

While some of their parts fail on a regualr basis (DVD drives) I have to say their service is right up there in my book. You can get to a tech pretty much on the first ring to support. They pay shipping of a carton for you to send in the laptop.

While a really good technical person could replace the part on the laptop, letting Gateway deal with it for you is the best solution. That port is soddered to the mother board and that has to be a perfect joint since it is higher voltage than in other parts of the motherboard.

Keep me posted.

Why would a year and a half old dell laptop stop charging and give the message "use a 65a Adapter" which is what the laptop came with and I'm using.


Dell uses a 3 pin charger.. inner ring, outer ring, and center pin. The center pin tells the laptop what the rating of the charger is. Is the pin broken? or bent.. or perhaps the charger is bad

My pin on my laptop is lose how can i fix it and my laptop dont turn on


Do you mean the pin where the charger (AC adapter) connects to? If so, this is often difficult to fix. This is possibly why the laptop won't turn on. Can't connect the charger since the connector pin is broken, so no way to charge the battery. This can sometimes be repaired by disassembling the laptop and soldering the connector back into place. If the connector itself is broken then some sort of hack job solution using generic parts canimplemented but the end result will not be very pretty. The bill for such repair jobs usually starts at around $100 & goes up in price.

I have a dell laptop and the charger pin is mest up on the laptop


The power port connector is soldered to the motherboard. So, you would need to replace the motherboard (costly). It would not be worth the cost. Sorry.

The little green light on charger goes off when i plug it into Dell Inspiron 6400, the charger works fine


Unplug the battery from the laptop and then plug the AC adaptor into the laptop. If the green light still goes off then your motherboard is shorting out the adaptor and the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Dell c640 charging problems.


Instead of spending alot of time trying to do something that could potentially harm your laptop..why not just buy a power supply?

You can get one here Click here for about 16 dollars. That's a great deal they are usually about $60 and its a Dell brand not some off brand.

Good Luck

The charger pin has become detached


What you have been told is correct. The charger adapter is an integral / integrated part of the mother borad.. This is something that can not be reasonably fixed / repaired, only replaced, unless you had access to the manufacturers parts suppliers. You might contact the manufacturer, and price out their repair costs. Also, you may find some hobbyist that could cobble togeather a fix to solder wires, and provide a way to get it to charge, but it would not be as convenient as the OEM Design.. I would use the manufacturers quote on repair / replacement as a pricing guide..

Sometimes you can find used laptops on eBay or similar that would be less than the repair costs.
