Question about Dell Inspiron 710m Notebook
My 710 recently stopped charging with the AC power cord. I have read about possible fixes. I would like to know if there is a docking station that can be used to charge the battery or at least power the laptop when in use.
Have you checked the AC power pin (where the AC cord plugs in)?
Chances are that the pin has come loose from tugging and pulling on it. When this happens the battery charging is intermittent at best. The parts to fix this problem are usually under $10 but the labor if you take it in is gonna run $100-$200. You can repair it yourself if you're comfortable working with electronic components. Not that tough. WHen you get it fixed, invest in a Cable Retention device to keep it from happening again.
Here's a short video that talks about it. . .
