Question about Computers & Internet
Common causes of similar problems are a loose connection or a cold solder on the DC jack at the end of the laptop. In some instances, it could be the actual charger/AC adapter that may be at fault. This however could be verified with the use of a voltmeter measuring the DC voltage at the output plug. As to the DC jack, it would be more of a concern opening the laptop and exposing the underneath of the motherboard (where the solder are) rather than the actual repair which is soldering. Incidentally, there are cases where the terminals/pins of the DC jack might have been cut off hence a replacement may be required. Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
