    I am having the same issues-- I have to jiggle the power cord and hold it at a funny angle to get it to charge.



    Whats the piece that I should look up to replace?

  • Anonymous Jan 12, 2009

    My Dell Inspiron 2200 Wont charge at all, I never really tried to jiggle the power cord because when I talked to the Dell Tech. Support people they just said my Motherboard had to be replaced. So at the moment I have the Laptop Unassembled, but what should I look for to diagnose this problem. Please Help.

How come nobody said "open it up, look for what doesn't work(the AC Adapter port), solder it, test it and..." well the rest is obvious... or if you are too scared, get someone else to solder it for you. at most the supplies needed to accomplish this should cost about 20 dollars give or take 5...instead of like $100-$300 based on what i have seen while searching for a new battery and charger...i figure i can use my girlfriend's charger from her vostro.... i got this inspiron 2200 from a friend with no charger or battery because she didnt want it anymore but me being a ****** for computers and gadgets, i said "oooooo can i have it. i can fix it. i want it." and i told her it simply needed to to be soldered and she insisted "the tech guy said it needed a new motherboard" i said "ok, can i still have it?"

Hi, I had this problem. Bought the part on Ebay for £6 delivered. Then paid a guy who is pretty good with repairs £30. It is like brand new. You can get the repair done including part for £70 to £90.

Burnt connector inside dell inspiron, first connector at motherboard (after power box) Can I fix it?? If so, can u help??


LOVE your user name!

I'll try to guide you the best that I can.
Sorry, first connector after Power Supply does me no good.

Let's look at a basic schematic of the motherboard for a Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop PC,

Dell Support > Inspiron 530s Desktop PC > Dell Inspiron 530s Series Owners Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insp530s/en/OM/HTML/index.htm

I would like you to click on - Removing and Installing Parts
In the left column click on - System Board Components
{System Board = Motherboard }

This is a basic view of the motherboard with No hardware components installed.
It is also how the motherboard sits in your computer.

This is a pictorial view of the motherboard,

http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Motherboard-Inspiron-Systems-Compatible/dp/B003CO0WQS

Now, compare the Dell Support motherboard illustration, to the pictorial.
Looking to the far right in the illustration, the first connector is marked with the number 8.

On the pictorial it is the rectangular Black connector at the bottom/middle. (Next to the rectangular White connector)

This connector is for a Floppy Drive.
Is this the connector in question?

Is it the white rectangular connector next to it?
This connector is for the main power cable coming from the Power Supply.
In the illustration is is marked by the number 7.

This is a basic example, of the power cable coming from the Power Supply (power box), that connects to the white connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain24

{Note* Color of the main power cable's connector does not matter. It can be any color }

IF this connector on the motherboard is burnt, you may wish to stop.
Electricity has more than likely fried the entire motherboard. May also include the Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, and a graphics card, if installed.

I know. I'm a 'ray of sunshine'.

How could this connector be burnt?
Four ways I know of;

1) Lightning storm, or power outage. Also could have happened if the power utility company was doing some changes in the power lines, utility pole transformer, etc.
(No. The utility company cannot be held responsible. I don't agree with that)

2) Power cable was not plugged in tightly. Lock on side was not locked into place.
Air gap created in-between the connecting contacts in the power cable connector, and the motherboard connector, created resistance.

Resistance creates heat. Burnt connector/s will result, and perhaps worse.
{Could also create a small power surge }

3) At one time Dell was a Proprietary computer manufacturer.
This means Dell wanted THEIR replacement parts used on THEIR computers.

If an aftermarket computer component is installed, Dell cannot warranty their computer.
Using THEIR parts in THEIR computers, Dell could.
However Dell computer users did not wish to pay the price of the Dell replacement parts.
The aftermarket parts were cheaper, of good quality, and readily available.

If we use a Power Supply for an example;

Dell had the motherboard manufacturer switch the socket holes around, in the Motherboard connector, for the main power cable.

They also had the Power Supply manufacturer switch the pins around, in the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector, to match.

The aftermarket power supply manufacturer built the power cables, and connectors, to follow industry standards. Dell did not.

This means if you plug an aftermarket power supply's main power cable, into a Dell motherboard that was built proprietary, the motherboard usually fried. The only sign may be a burnt connector on the motherboard.

Could also have fried the Processor, Ram Memory, Harddrive, optical drive/s, and a graphics card, IF installed.

[ Looking at the Playtool link again, look at the photo to the far right.
See the different colored wires?
The color coding indicates what the wire carries as far as Voltage, or if it is a Ground wire.

1) Orange insulated wires = 3.3 Volts
2) Red wires = 5 Volts
3) Yellow wires = 12 Volts
(All are DC. In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC)

4) The Black wires are Ground wires

(The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. Abbreviated as PS_ON)

The Orange, Red, and Yellow wires are power wires.
The Black wires are Ground wires.
Guess what happens if a 12 Volt wire is connected to a Ground?
(Instead of going to a 12 Volt connection)

Things start frying.

{To state connections in the main power cable connector, and it's respective connector on the motherboard, correctly;

Looking at the middle photo you see the connection end of the main power cable.
Plastic connector with individual plastic rectangular shapes, that have metal 'tubes' inside each of them.

The motherboard connector has socket holes to match the individual plastic rectangular shapes.
Inside the socket holes are metal pins. Contact pins.
The contact pins go inside the metal 'tubes'.

The metal 'tube' is a Molex Socket Terminal,

http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Molex/36664-0002/?qs=sGAEpiMZZMvz8LftK4jerhl0r50z%252bUNRzFCdHbJqUTU%3d


4) IF the Power Supply, ( looking at it from the Back of the computer), has a rocker switch, or slide switch, to set the incoming AC power to 110 Volts, or 220 Volts;
And the power supply switch was set to 110, and plugged into 220 Volts,
the motherboard connector would fry.

Plus the Power Supply. May also of course include Processor, Ram Memory, Motherboard, Harddrive, optical drive/s, and graphics card IF installed.


Replace the connector? No
Could be;
A) Replace the Power Supply. Still no?
B) Replace the Motherboard. Still no?
C) Replace the Ram Memory. Still no?
D) Replace the Processor. Computer operates but no graphics?
E) Graphics card installed? Replace graphics card

Unless you can test each individual component, and the cost is not much less, or equal to a new computer, the obvious choice would be to purchase a new, or good used computer.

Repairing power connector inspiron 2200


The connector is special to Dell, and not generally available. You may need to purchase a new power supply. The connector has 3 concentric terminals, and one is used to 'ID' the power supply as genuine DELL. A plain DC connector can be used, but the batterys will not charge.

Dell Inspiron Laptop powers off by itself.


Hi,

This could be a couple of issues. One, the computer could be over heating and shutting down. Ask her if her laptop was warm and if the fan was constantly running. The second possiblity is the cord that plugs into the laptop has become loose and once wiggled will cause it to turn off because the battery doesn't hold a charge. Have her put the laptop on the table and with the computer running wiggle the cable. If it shuts down its a bad connector. In this case find someone with mad soldering skills and re-solder the connector on the motherboard.

Armymason
If this sounds like a good solution a high score is appreciated.
