Hi There,

Your problem is very common when the DC Power Jack (where you plug the adapter/charger into the laptop) is starting to fail. The only solution is to have it replaced. I send all my client's laptops in to any one of several DC Power Jack Repair companies that can be found on eBay.

Go to eBay and type "DC Power Jack Replacement Laptop" into the Search box and you will see companies with prices ranging from about $70 to $125 or so. You buy the "Auction" and then send in the laptop.

Or, find a local laptop repair guy in your area capable of the repair.

Best of Luck to you.

My charger will not charge the computer, and when it is plugged in it is getting really hot...is it my charger or battery??


Toshiba laptops run really hot, normally. It is one thing that I dislike about them. I never investigated, but presumed it was processor, as the heat was being removed by the fan.

First of all, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether.

Ac adapter problem with dell inspiron 1545


TRy to remove the battery, then power the laptop on with only the ac power adapter inserted. if it powers, then your adapter is ok, and insert battery while its on, battery charging should start. otherwise, you could be having a problem with your charging system.

My inspiron 1000 laptop from dell won't turn on. The adapter cord is not getting hot. I was defragging the computer when it shut off. Is this the adapter cord?


Hello there:
ok the first thing that i would suggest is to remove the battery and unplug the power cord from the computer
now check the area that the battery connects to and get a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and clean the contact areas where the battery connects to the computer at really good and let dry
next if the computer has a reset hole on the back of it use a toothpick or somthing small and press in on the reset for 2 min and than release than press and hold in on the computers power on button for one minute and release now plug in only the power cord and turn on the computer and it should now start
than after it does put the battery in and let charge for a min of 30 min
than you should be ok from there ok
Please feel free to post a comment to me if you still have problems ok
Hope all of this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

My Dell Vostro 1500 has a problem. AC adapter turned off when I plugged into laptop while battery plugged. It works either battery or AC adapter. Can't Charge battery. Please help!


Check the power adapter with a multi-meter, the voltage of the power plug that plugs into the power socket on the laptop should be slight higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the adapter.
If it is faulty, there are replacement power supplies available on the Internet or at your friendly computer shop.
If the adapter is OK then the power socket on the laptop is faulty or this socket has a dry solder joint connection on the motherboard.
You can test this by wriggling the power plug when it is connected to the laptop, if the charge LED flickers and if you hold this plug in a certain position the charge LED stays on without flickering, then the power socket is faulty.
This can be repaired, but requires the laptop to be completely
disassembled. I suggest you get a quote first.

Battery stopped charging


Your adapter could be faulty, test it with a multimeter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage printed on the label on the adapter.
If the power adapter is OK then the power connector on the laptop could be faulty, plug the connector into the laptop and wriggle the connector to see if the power LED light on the laptop flicks on and off. This indicates a faulty connector and can be repaired.

To check if the laptop is OK, borrow a charged battery or an adapter, connect it to your laptop and see if it boots up.

Doesnt charge


This could most probably be a battery issue. To check if it is really a battery issue, remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter. If the computer powers up, then this is definitely a battery issue and you'll need to purchase a new battery or call your computer's manufacturer and ask them if they have battery exchange programs.

Compaq evo n610c battery not charging


Hello All;
I used to have these same problems. I replace my BIOS battery, which I know was dead, because all settings get reset when I unplug the power and remove main battery. You might not have to replace it if its still good. Back to the main battery problem, You have a good change of solving this by going into BIOS, and under Tools there is a Battery Calibration option. Do the calibration for the main battery and-or other optional batteries attach and it will most likely solve the problems. This calibration process will take a long time; 1-charge, 2-discharge, 3-recharge, so leave it over night or however.

There was a mention of updating BIOS. This could solve the problem too, because BIOS controls the charging unit. Also, make sure you have Compaq Power Management install on your OS, (download at hp.com).

One note: it will not charge if the battery is about 93% or higher. 93 is not exact, but close to 90%. so test by discharging to below 90% and it will start charging again.

If anyone tries this, leave a post of your success or failure.
