Power cord has a bad connection to the system

I bought a new power cord thinking there was a short in the cord. But it still would not keep power going to the system. I actually had to tape the power cord in a certain position to keep the machine power turned on, but that doesnt always work. Is the connector inside easy to repair and cheap?

If it keeps connecting and disconnecting, it could be either the power adapter or the motherboard, but chances are it's the power adapter (and that's the cheaper solution too). You can usually get a new power adapter for $15 or $20, and that should take care of your problem.

Computer will not stay powered on...power cord not keeping good connection.

Power cord could be bad. I bought a multi-pin power cord from Walmart for $100 (so it would work with any of my laptops).

If it isn't the power cord it could be in your boot up.

Verify that the light on the power block is green with the cable only connected to the wall. If the light goes out when it's connected to the PC the your motherboard is bad.

Sounds as though the power cord reset switch might be bad and need to be replaced. If not, then there is a short somewhere in the system. Do an ohms test on the switch to determine if it is bad.

Power problem

I don't think you are dealing with a short in your system. Your battery is probably dead and/or needs to be charged. See if your new power cord will work and will turn your computer on. Make sure that you have the exact power cord that your specific system calls for, because not all laptop power cords are the same. I mean you can't just use any laptop power cord; it has to be one that is rightly built specifically for your laptop system.

Power cord

You may have a broken solder connection - some sort of broken or intermittent connection. Common problems are broken solder connections at the power jack (inside the laptop). If this is the case, the laptop will need to be disassembled for repairs to be made. Note: There are online sites with DC power jacks available, crossed by Model number.

Wiring can also break (external to the laptop) especially if the wire/cord is flexed frequently (like when wrapped up to put into the laptop bag). Sometimes there is no external evidence of a break.

Also, if indeed your laptop has a pig-tale as you describe, the jack where you connect might be worn out- just not making contact with the plug.

Find someone with a little tech savvy, if necessary, and locate the exact nature of the bad connection, and make repairs from there.
