Laptop plugged in, not charging - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Since the problem likely lies physically with the charging port itself, that kind of rules out software.

I think I know what the problem is (had this with my lap top). It's possible that the part where the charger connects to the battery and the motherboard of the lap top has short circuited and stopped working. Basically there really isn't any cheap way of fixing it. you just have to use the charger all the time now since the battery is useless. Getting a new battery won't help if my prediction is correct.

Damage to the port where the AC adapter connects to the laptop motherboard is orders of magnitude more common than what you have suggested. OP should be able to find a guide on the net on how to repair/replace. When I worked at our local computer shop this procedure was ~$150 to fix. There were a few laptops per week which required this procedure.

If I use the AC it's self without the battery, the laptop would turn off 10 seconds after I turn it on.
