Hello my power code was loose and would slip out of the socket occasionally and now the batter wont work and I am unable to power up the lab top. I purchased a new battery but that did not get it to power up. So at this point I have a dead notebook on my hands.

Re: Notebook is not powering up
You have a fairly common failure of teh power plug on the motherboard. You can get a replacement for less than $100and have it installed locally for about the same price if you are not comfortable doing it yourself.

try unplugging from the mains, remove the battery, hold the power button down for 30 seconds. plug the mains adapter in and try turning on. if it doesn't work then it's either the power socket or the mainboard. if it does work, then try it again with the batter in. if it stops working then your battery's shot.
What do you mean the new batter is not working? Does the computer turn on with the Power Cord? If not, the power cord is bad and cannot charge the battery. I have seen times when new batteries are defective. The new battery does not come charged so you have to plug in the power cord and let it charge overnight.
The most common reasons are your batter and power adapter.
Disconnect all cables, flip the laptop, unlock and remove the battery. Reinsert and lock, connect the power adapter and try again.
If still a problem, disconnect all cables, flip the laptop, unlock and remove the battery. Connect the power adapter again. If it works, your battery is faulty and needs replacement. if it doesn't work and there is no light on the adapter, your adapter is probably faulty.
Also, try this: wiggle the power adapter where it connects to the laptop. If the power goes on and off, the power jack is faulty and needs soldering or replacement. Leave that job to an experienced tech.
Looks like either the power jack of your adapter is experiencing a bad connection. Check if the power adapter's cable near the jack which plugs into the laptop is not severely bent.If this is the case, then you will need to replace the power adapter.
If this is not the case, check the DC socket where you plug the power jack into the laptop. This socket might be loose or broken. If this turns out to be the case, then your laptop needs to be disassembled in order to re-solder or replace this socket, depending on its condition.
MAKE SURE POWER CABLE CONNECTED TO REAR OF LAPTOP/PLUG END IN SOCKET/TURN ON SOCKET/MAKE SURE POWER AT SOCKET?
OPEN LAPTOP/SHOULD SEE LED(S) SHOWING?
LOCATE SWITC/BUTTON/PRESS/SHOULD HEAR HDD STARTUP AND SCREEN ACTIVATE?
Seems that your notebook's power socket, where you plug the power cord, is damaged & is causing a loose connection. The loose connection causes the power socket as well as the power cord's tip to overheat & burn.
it is called the AC power Wall Socket is that what u r talking about do u think u can replace it i think u should call some elec guy to fix it like maintenance guy it has nothing to do with ur notebook its just the pins inside the socket got loose and ur plug is unable to stand in there am i right pls vote if u find me helpful
You might of fried the whole motherboard when it sparked. Check if there is a fuse. Bridge the gap, and it should turn on. If not PULL THE PLUG.its something else that went wrong.If you don't, it smells really bad. Ive learn't from experience...
