Question about Computers & Internet
My power adapter recently broke,so my battery eventually died. i just got a new power adapter and plugged it in and the computer will not boot,i've taken the battery out and put it back in and tried again, and still no luck. any suggestions? do I need a new battery too? the computer is not very old, just over a year. any thoughts?
Based on what you have stated, it looks to be your AC connector that is loose or broken from the motherboard. This connector just needs to be soldered back onto the motherboard. Have a technician look at this before you start spending money on a new battery.

Take an ink pen and push the tip inside the jack and see if
the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have to take the laptop
apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto the motherboard, so you
will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.
If the DC Power Jack is bad, then eventually the battery is going to die and you won't be able to boot your laptop. If the dc power jack is bad, the ac adapter power cord can't charge the battery.
