Im new to the board, have a dell inspiron 4150, been running for a couple years with no problems. lately, been having problems powering up the computer with my ac adapter. I figured that it was becuase of the crimped ac cord as it had no probems starting with my batt (as long as it was charged).
Here comes the problem.
My original ac adapter no longer can power up the computer (no matter how i try to reposition the plug) and my battery has run out of juice. ive already ordered a new ac adapter plug, but it STILL doesnt work.
Am i looking at a loose connection between mother board and ac adapter inlet? or is it something worse than that? since i have no juice on my battery i dont know if it will still boot regardless of the ac adapter.
any help or input would be appreciated, Thanx!
