Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
I replaced the battery and adapter. I had been getting messages that the adapter wasn't properr (it was supplied by Dell). No changes occurred. I still get the message; the computer doesn't stay on AC power, unless I fiddle with the adapter at the computer.
This sounds as if the jack in the machine is loose or broken. Take a small screwdriver, place it in the jack, and see if there is any play in the jack. If there is play then you know the jack is loose/broken. I would suggest checking it or having someone check it. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch that can do severe damage to the machine, so if it is the jack, you will want to get it fixed ASAP. I also suggest not using the machine, if possible, until the jack is checked out. If it turns out not to be the jack, then it's going to be a problem with the power management system, and this is a major fix. From what you've posted, I'm going to say that it's the jack, and repairing the jack will fix your problem. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.
