I have a compaq nc6120 laptop. The power cord where you plug it into the computer has a small hole that goes around a pin. That pin broke off the computer and is in the power cord. I can easily pull it out of the power cord, but don't know what is recomended from that point. Do I need to replace that part, or can you solder the thing together completely. I don't need to transport this laptop, so if it were permanently connected I would't care. Looking for suggestions?

1) When plugged into power, and plugged into the laptop, gently wiggle the cable from the AC adapter TO laptop.
Do the same on the power cord TO AC adapter.
NO? Go on.
2) The port on the laptop that the plug from the AC adapter plugs into, is the DC Power Jack. If we are discussing an Acer Aspire 5738Z Notebook PC, the DC Power Jack resembles this one, (Not installed),

you'll have to provide more details about the problem. From what little you've said, I suppose your laptop wont turn on both when trying it on battery and on power cord. If this is the case, you may be facing the well known Maxim chip problem. he nc6xxx series are known to have these problems with the Maxim chip and the power plug on the motherboard. You can find the Maxim chip and power plug resolder instructions here.
Yes. Usually they either work or they don't so obviously when they test good they should charge the battery. Dell laptops have a "data pin" that determines what wattage of power cord is plugged. If this data pin goes bad on the power cord or motherboard the laptop won't charge.
Take a look at the back of the laptop. Is the gold power pin still there or is it now stuck in in the end of the power brick cord?
HP actually extended the wty on these machines because of the power pin issues. If the power pin is missing you will need to have the machine serviced. Out of wty, replacement power pins are easy to solder on the board if this is the issue.
If your pin is still there... Your AC cord or power brick may be the next things to check. Connecting them to a meter will tell you if there is power. Try moving the cords to check for shorts in the wires.
If your AC cord and brick are good, try pulling the battery. Your laptop can run off AC only. Batteries with bad cells can sometimes prevent the machine from powering up.
If its still not powering up after all of that, there may be an issue with the motherboard in the machine.
I had the same problem on my CQ60. HP battery test showed one or more cells not working. After spending about 2 hours talking to some guy in India,or somewhere, he came to the conclusion that my battery was bad. HP sent me a new battery, which fixed the problem. kenbun
Is the cord broken in the computer, or the monitor or the pin broken and stuck in the machine? If it is in a desktop it goes into the power supply. Which you can change the whole power supply fairly cheap. that is if it in a desk top computer. 4 screws, 4 or 5 connectors and ta da new power supply, All you need is readings off power supply such as wattage. Good luck
well known fault caused by faulty motherboard,you can disable your usb ports which will stop the annoying fault reports and you can use your latop as normal but obviously you cannot use your usb ports as you have disabled them
