Electric connection not working properly

It seems that the connection at the computer to the electric cord is not working properly. The computer is older and the battery depleted. Even with electric plug in, it tells me that I need to plug in as battery is deficient. It seems that the computer connection my be loose. I am afraid that soon I won't have battery power and won't be able to access electric either. What's going on? What can I do?

    The power cord and brick seems to be working, have another computer just like it and it is giving juice, first thing I tried. I believe the connection is not good at the computer, where the electric plugs in.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.
Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.
Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r
Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.
They are either copper tin or gold.
The colour will tell you which they are.

Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.
Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.
Reseat the memory modules.
You should hear an audible click when they are in place.
Do not use too much force to reseat the memory module in to the slot this can cause damage to the module, slot or motherboard.
The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.
Could be a problem with the Hard Drive or the Hard drives PCB

There is a connection problem such as a bad cable

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA

the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a
secure dust free connections and are not faulty.
Although it would be very rare for the sata lead to be faulty.
Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty
Computers need power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
also
There are several possible reasons the computer may not be powering on.
The connections may be loose or damaged.
The AC adapter or power cord may no longer be functioning.

Only battery charge indicator working


Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

My new battery is not working with my Sony vaio laptop


What do you mean the new batter is not working? Does the computer turn on with the Power Cord? If not, the power cord is bad and cannot charge the battery. I have seen times when new batteries are defective. The new battery does not come charged so you have to plug in the power cord and let it charge overnight.

The power plug doesn't seem to connect properly and, when it does, the charging light invariably flashes and fails to charge the battery.


Try purchasing a new power cord and if that does nt work then it would be the port on the laptop itself and if that is the case then that is not fixable and will need a new motherboard or computer.

My computer won't turn on or charge.


You need to diagnose the problem.
>First try to take the battery out of the computer and just use the charger to make computer run.
>If it turns on it means that the battery is what's causing the problem.
>But, if computer cannot run using the charger/AC Adapter then it means that we have a problem with the charger.
By doing this diagnostics you know which part to replace.

I CAN'T SEEM TO GET ANYTHING ON MY COMPUTER OTHER THAN A BLANK S


Possibilities:
* broken connector where the power-cord connects to the computer
* dead CPU
* dead motherboard

My recommendation is that you take it (with both power-cords) to a local computer-store, and get it professionally checked-out.

I have a hp compaq6535b and i'm having power cord/charging issues. i initially thought that it was just a power cord issue but i borrowed an iGo universal power cord from a co-worker and for a few days it...


The component that you refer to inside the computer is called a 'jack', not a plug. The problem with the connection to the jack is that there is no mechanical connection from it to the circuit board--just the three solder connections and they usually will tear the copper traces going to the jack. A proper fix is to epoxy the jack to the board for mechanical support and use short sections of wire to bypass the broken circuit runs. As far as the intermittent computer actions are concerned, don't change the power plug in or out without shutting the computer down temporarily. Does the overheating occur just when the charger is connected and is it around the battery area? If so, the battery itself may be getting electrically leaky causing the heat. This may mean replacement time for the battery in the future. You might limit the charging time to just enough to keep the battery fully charged. Hope this helps!

HP Pavilion dv2020us laptop battery won't charge


How is your power supply? does it seem like you have to wiggle your cord that connects to computer to make it recieve power?...Many laptops power supply become loose over time form moving the cord around..when it does, the battery has a hard time getting electric power to recharge. Also, you my have other problems with your lithium internal battery that powers your cmos.

Check to see if your power supply is loose and go from there. the power supply is the little hole where you connect the cord to the laptop.

let me know what the status is
