My Sony Vaio wont charge the batter. It started as a small problem when I would noticed that I wasnt charging even when the cable to the a/c adapter was connected to the laptop.
I would then wiggle the cord a bit and it would eventually start charging again. Well, this got worst until it now doesnt charge even if I move the cable around. I bought a new a/c adapter and still no charge. Eventually, my laptop ran out of battery and now it wont turn on.
What whould most common problem and what is typically the solution? Cost? I might just purchase a new laptop anyway, but it would be nice to get my data plus it would be a shame to throw this current one away just because it doesnt charge.
Is there a universal laptop charger via USB available somewhere?
For a start if you dont feel confident in opening up you laptop then DONT. This is a very complicated job which usualy means a complete strip down until you are left with the motherboard. If you feel confident to do this then make an attempt but remember about earthing yourself to stop static and get some practice soldering before attempting to remove the old a/c jack. The part you need is very cheap, its the labour that is going to cost you.
