Hi anyone help please, we have a Dell Inspiron 1525, was working fine then power started to flicker, it would go off then after a short time come back on again, this went on for a few weeks, then went off all togeather, not a scrap of power, green led was lit on AC adaptor but still i assumed that was the problem so bought a new one.

Connected new adaptor, not a scrap of power, don't know anything about removing bits stc.

Any suggestions please.

It sounds as if your plug in the machine has developed a broken connection. The description is typical of the process. I would suggest (depending on your own level of expertise or daring) to either open the case, find and repair (solder) the broken connection by yourself or bring it in to a repair shop to have the job done for you.

Thanks will try the repair shop, tried to remove back but cannot get it off completely.

If you feel that your problem has been answered (to thee extent that this thread can handle it) please mark the thread as "solved"
