Power lead.

BillieTheBotBillieTheBot Posts: 8,723 Bot
I've got a problem with my lap top power lead.

I have to jiggle it for a while before the light comes on and it actually charges.

I dont want to have to piss about with it every time I use the computer and its really unreliable.

Is there anyway it can be fixed or is it knackered?
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    i think its knackered, thats what happened with my old monitor until one day when i ould see all the wires and the screen wouldnt even turn on so i went out and picked up a nice new one. have a look about, you may be able to pick one up for cheap, but until then i think may just have to keep up the jiggling :p

    Bugger, its a good lap top too, not massively new but it was really quick when it was bought and its still decent now.

    i dont think the laptops buggered, the inside of the cable might be damaged, the only reason i had to buy a new monitor was becasue the cable went inside my monitor so it wasnt as easy as buying a new cable. i would buy a new cable and see if that makes any improvement if not then you know for sure that its the connections on the laptop.

    The cables fine I think, you can feel the pug in the back of the lap top has moved in a tiny bit. I was expecting you geeks would know some quick and easy way to repair it.

    It's probably some of the internal connector bits have come loose, an electrician will probably fix it with no problem for you, but they charge a lot. I don't know exactly what you'd have to do inside so... sorry I can't be of mre assistance.
