Question about E-Machines M2350 Notebook
For the past week or two, when I use my laptop (plugged into the wall), I get a "critical battery" message. Usually, the message goes away in a minute or so and I can continue.... I didn't worry, because I hardly ever use battery power (always plugged into the wall). However, the computer is now shutting off approx. 1 minute after the message is displayed. Now, the computer won't even turn on at all. I suspect it is a power supply issue, but I just wanted to confirm before I make the purchase. Advice? Thanks in advance!
If your AC adapter can no
longer power your battery because the power connector is loose or
damaged, this part is vital to keep your laptop or notebook running.
The jack can be bought here for $5.98
eMachines is known to use both 1.65mm and 2.5mm center pin sizes, personal verification must be done in order to get the correct part. The 2.5mm pin size is the most common size used, please see PJ013 for the 1.65mm size.
If it also needs a new battery, the cheapest I've found is $69.00 found here
If it also needs a new DC adaptor, look for it here (make sure you get the correct wattage)

Power connector in laptop is broken, must remove board and replace the jack on the motherboard.

It's one of two issues. 1 - power supply. 2 - the power management chip on the motherboard. Since the power supply is the lesser of the two, try a new supply first. If that doesn't do the trick then it's the pm chip and the motherboard will need to be replaced.
*NOTE* The power management chip recognizes the type of power being used and allows the computer to switch between AC and battery power, it also allows the unit to charge the battery.
