Question about Dell Inspiron 1100 Notebook
The power on my laptop goes off and on constantly. When no power is going through the laptop the screen gets a little dark and it lights back up when there is power. The AC adapter is fine. This has been going on for months now. Also, the light on front of the laptop the third light it blinks orange about 5 times then it blinks green once. This also has been going on for a long time now. Is there a solution to this because my pc cuts off a few minutes later when there's no power going through. I think it's the power socket on the back of the laptop where you plug in the AC adapter. I think it's loose or something because I can sort of move it while the plug is in.
You are correct about the DC plug on the 1100, they are well known for the problem you posted. It could be one of two things, the solder points where the DC jack is soldered to the motherboard could have "cold solder joints" and re flowing the solder will fix it. Or the DC jack itself is faulty (the more common issue with these Inspirons) in which case almost all PC service shops will insist that the Mother Board has to be replaced (Not worth replacing), but you can obtain the jack for a reasonable fee and either replace it yourself (if you are very good at desodering and soldering, It's surface mounted, and not through hole which through hole is a lot easier to do), or open the laptop remove the Mother Board and take it in to a reputable electronics shop and have them use their state of the art equipment to replace the faulty jack for a reasonable fee.
