hi all, i got a faulty dell latitude, i plug the power supply into the wall and the light on it comes up green, now when i put it into the laptop that light goes out. the laptop wont power on at all. i've tried with no PS, PS and no battery , PS and battery but still nothing,

It's my understanding that something may have caused a short on the board around the power jack. anybody know how to resolve this? i understand that it will prob require some soldering which is not a problem, just chuck me some ideas possibly with images if you can so i can give it a shot.

Thanks in advance guys

are you sure its the laptop and not the power supply.

Why dont you take laptop down to local maplin store and see if any of their generic ones fit your laptop. Obviously dont tell them you are testing but want to buy a replacement. if it is the psu you can always buy the replacement.
