Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
The power cord itself is fine, the inside connection doesn't work unless you fiddle with the jack, etc. Very annoying, as Dell doesn't seem too concerned about it.
I am afraid it is going to be a a bit of work taking the laptop apart, solder the power jack than put back together.
If you are not confident to doing it i suggest you seek help by having a repair shop/centre service it for you. If the laptop is under warranty, you are better of raising a warranty call.
Anyway, you will need some screw drivers; small Flat and a Philips heads. You will also need soldering iron and lead. Finally, a work table will make things easier.
Check Replacing the System Board for help access the system board. Check and solder yo the power jack carefully and reverse the steps to put the laptop together.
Let me know how you get on.
