Power Supply or Power Jack Problems? We can figure it out

There are a lot of purchases made by people in error when it comes to Replacement Laptop Power Supplies. The common reaction when their laptop is not being powered by the charger is to think that it has failed and  to buy a new one. However once they receive the replacement laptop adapter this too will not power the laptop. The first problem could be that you have been unlucky in receiving a faulty adapter, the second could be a fault within your laptop.

To test a charger you could plug it into one of your friends laptops of the same make. If it works on that but not on yours then your laptop could be at fault. Another way to test the charger would be to use a voltmeter. See if there is any kind of output.

The diagnosis people do not want to hear is a fault with the Power Jack inside their laptop. Whilst it is not all that difficult for a competent technician to repair, it is not something you can try to do at home without knowing what you are doing. It involves stripping the laptop down and soldering a new DC Socket on to the motherboard. Laptop Power UK can diagnose this fault within seconds. Once we have diagnosed the fault just leave your laptop with us for 24 hours and with the best Liverpool Laptop Repairs your laptop will be fixed and charging again in no time.
