    The laptops right side DC-IN port (check the Wattage also as there are two) is a PnP (plug and play) type and connects to the motherboard internally and its not hard to do. You have to first open the lower case and then fit the new DC-IN plug/cable, see below. Make sure that its not the internal charging circuitries also that are aiusing your problems and also check your charger/adaptor if it doesn’t switch off (as that is a safety) with all charging/adaptors if there is an internal or DC-IN plug short, check all that as DC-IN cables don’t go wrong only the external side DC plug wears out.

    DC-IN cable at right top side of laptop. When back case is opened its on the left top side.

  • egydiocoelhoegydiocoelho ACE Posts: 81,661 Trailblazer
    It is a tape that holds the dcin cable. You can indeed remove it. But remove carefully!
