@Captain K, what's wrong with your laptop exactly?

Dell Inspiron 1545. Power wouldn't come on, power light would flicker, noticed the power jeck was pushed in and bent. Seemed to be a standard thing. I took it apart and replaced the circuit board thing with the jack and... Nothing. Not a flicker. The whole thing seems to be dead.

The power had worked before, the transformer pack still has its little blue light.

Now it is dead. Damn thing.

It;s the power cable bro, I've had to working with a sony viao myself. I have had the laptop for 5-6 years I've had to replace the cable at least 12 times.

Universal power cable 20 bucks at walmart problem solved.

By cable, I mean the part you put into the computer not the entire cable, just that little flimsy tip. The things are basically designed to break over time so you have to buy a new one.

I actually had a Dell Inspiron 1545 until it died, battery crapped out. the laptop was several years old so I didn't bother replacing it for something else to go wrong. But that thing is terrible for power consumption and kills batteries.

But yea, Grassmonkey's right, get a new power cord that's not all bent up and it should be up and running. If not, your battery is dead. Although that should only be the case if your laptop can only last like 5 mins when it's not plugged in like mine at the end of it's life.

Thank you, will do.

Battery is new, power jack has been replaced. New generic cable is just 6 online so I'll try that.

Cheers amigos.

Not a problem, let me know how it goes.

Also, a side note I forgot to mention that the port where you plug in your charger could also be a bit screwed up (read shifted) and that could prevent it from being charged. Although that typically only happens if you drop your laptop on the side with the charger while it's being charged repeatedly or it falls really hard, which could also screw up the charger itself by bending it.

It did, it was all bent inside, so I took the machine apart and replaced it, expecting the magic power button light but no dice.

Stupid computer hardware grumble grumble.

Well if the inside bit gets shifted around, then usually the charger is messed up too. So replacing it should do the trick then. If not, try taking out the battery and putting it back in.

No, I wasn't worried, I am just reluctant to make Bobo actually do anything at the moment, so he's feeling a bit inactive.

I'm torn, part of me wants to go over to that guy and teach him a lesson. The other more logical part tells me to not interfere because it's not in our best interests to draw attention to ourselves.

As a note, they weren't formed from shadow. They emerged from the shadows, as if they had been hidden there the entire time.
