Evening all

My lappy has a dodgy power connection.

I have to wiggle the lead round for ages to connect then don't breathe or it goes off.

So before I throw it out the window can anyone tell me if this is a cheap and easy fix?

Many thanks

TheMrs

I have done a couple,if you know someone who is confident and find an online "strip down" instructions it should be an easy fix,,Are you certain it is not the power lead as they often break near the plug?,Easy to test if you know someone with a volt meter,I have come across this many times.

I had to order a new power lead about a month ago as the same thing kept on happening to me. It would beep all the time when the connection became loose, driving me mad.

Since getting the new one (cost about 14) I've had no problems smile

It's either the power adapter or the power socket.

Easy test, try another power adapter (we have them in, easy enough just to plug one in and try it). If that solves the problem, you have a crack in the power lead, replace and it's done.

If it still has the problem then it's probably the power socket on the board (or fly lead depending on make/model). Replace this (yes we can do it) and that should sort the problem out and let you breathe again smile

^ as the DR has said if it's the fly lead then it's easy to sort if it's solidered on then it's a bugger

Thanks all

Its def not the power lead as I've tried 3 of them and its still the same.

Its an ASUS lappy but can't look at the model number as its currently balancing on my knee smile

Next time it goes off I will google it and see if I can strip it down myself....If not..I'll be back
