dell latitude d610 won't power up
I have a Dell Latitude D610 that will not power up with the ac adapter but will fire up with the battery, when I plug the ac adapter into the jack on the main board the green light on the ac adapter goes off which I've read means a short ether in the plug/jack on the main board or in the circuitry. I have swapped out 3 different ac adapters & all did the same thing, green light goes out as soon as you plug it into the jack on the computer. I also read this is a pretty common problem with some dells where the jack on the main board goes bad, so I bought a new jack for the main board & had it soldered in professionally, but am still having the same problem. any ideas what to try next?
thanks in advance

Sounds like you need to send it back to Dell.
They are so versed in power supplies, especially wiring changes.Copyright protection & Intellectual property my ass. All you elitists want is more money & power. Enough is enough!

Videobruce, that lappy is 5-6 years old. I'm just guessing the warranty is expired.

I believe the next step is to find a large parking facility, 3+ floors. Bring friend and a video recorder of your choice, cell phones w/ video will work.
Gently nudge D610 from the ledge and record its plummet to the ground. Pause recording. Run down to the ground. Report effects of the fall.
Go to Dell.com and buy a new one. Cheers!
Seriously though, don't waste your money on a laptop that old. It really isnt worth the month on a D610 since the last one they produced in the D-Series was the D630 and they dont even make the D-Series line anymore!
You may put the money toward a new laptop or at the very least a newer laptop!
