    Same notebook, ac adapter bent, bought a new one but I still need to hold the adapter into the connection tightly while battery charges, Does this mean the connection at the motherboard is going bad and if so, is it worth it to replace motherboard? 3 yrs old, warranty's done

    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?"

Are you talking about one of the pins on the motherboard that the 20/24 pin power cable plugs in to?.If it is then the board is no good.

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.

Dell inspiron blue screen error with any hard drive?


Have you checked the cable from the drive to the board? If it is loose or if a wire has cracked inside the harness it can cause this failure.

Also check the drive power supply. There is a chance that the drive is not getting the correct and constant voltage to run. It has enough to get started, but the supply dies after a moment, then resets itself.

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.

Exact same thing


Usually this means replacing the motherboard, but you could also have a bad power supply/charger. How old is the computer and is it still under warranty?

Dell inspiron 3200 powers up but no picture on screen


Check the VGA Card that it's placed correctly and/or the VGA Cable is connected, then remove the battery of the MB, power up the PC then see what will happen, if it doesn't work then re-check the power cables to the motherboard.
