Question about Computers & Internet
Hi theetum - Is that a Targus with the interchangeable tips? If the tip is tight but still has wiggle while it's connected it sounds like the dc jack on your laptop. It's a board inside that has the pin on it that goes inside the connector on your ac adaptor. You can repair it yourself if you feel up to it or have it done by someone for about $50-75. If it's the Targus adapter with changeable tips and the tip is loose you can buy a new tip for $6. Look on the tip and it should have a number like 1,2,3,4,etc. If I sufficiently asnwered your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If rating as helpful please don't rate at all as it only hurte my ratings. If you need further help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Tips for a great answer:
Try firstly removing the laptop's
battery as it may be at a critical voltage and the system will not
start because of it. Plug in your ac adaptor and monitor what
happens. Does the power light illuminate? If it does it should then
boot up, if it doesn't, try a known good ac adaptor before going any
If the adaptor is fine and the laptop still won't start, then you may have a mother board fault and should contact a dealer/repairer for further advice.
Hope this helps.
