Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
My Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop periodically shuts down. With the AC adapter plugged in, the green "power" indicator light on the laptop sometimes turns OFF. If I unplug the adapter, the indicator turns orange, and when I plug it in again it turns green for a while. When I put the cursor over the power icon on the status bar it indicates battery either 1% or 2% charged and charging. But, it doesn't seem to go above 2%. I checked the power adapter with a voltmeter and it is about 19.6 vdc. I checked battery terminals - I don't know which ones supply power, but some terminal pairs read 12.6 vdc. I got a new aftermarket battery about 8 months ago. How can I determine if I need a new AC power adapter, new battery, or a laptop internal problem?
Sounds like the power jack in the back of the laptop is loose. Try wiggling the power cord where it connects to the laptop.and see if the power indicator light goes on and off. If your power jack has a loose connection inside the laptop, it won't charge your battery and will kill it faster. It's usually around $100 to have someone fix it. If your good with soldering small electronics, you can find the jack on Ebay and carefully solder a new one on.

You've checked the p/s and it has volts out. Try removing the battery and running the laptop just on the p/s. If it works like this the battery is dead. Otherwise the laptop has a problem.
If the battery is dead, buy a new battery or run it on p/s alone. Laptops should be run on battery alone as much as possible, or the battery dies.
