Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Gateway laptop I have had intermittent problems with the
power connection. Under warranty, we had the MD and HDD replaced
to fix it. It seemed better, but still every now and then intermittent.
Now, we can not wiggle or anything to get it to work. I have 2 power
converter cables, tried both. Also tried with battery in and out.
Do I need to preplace the dc power connection?
You have 2 choices.. One : You can Desolder the DC Power Jack from the mainboard, clean the pins and connections on the board, then Resolder the DC Power jack back on. Or TWO: purchase a new DC Power Jack and Remove old one / replace with new one.. This will fix your Laptop Power problem..
