My laptop doesn't seem to connect to any power supply anymore. I went to turn it on yesterday, but nothing. I removed and inserted the battery and it worked. Got a battery warning, but it wouldn't recognize the power supply. I then tried to put it on the docking station, but still no power being drawn. It did run off the battery for a while, but now that has died. Is this a motherboard issue or a power supply issue? The AC cord does work, I tested it.
Dell said it's toast, but they may also be looking to sell me a new machine. I use this machine as a supplement to my desktop for design work/presentations. I need to sync my current projects off the drive soon.
I really don't want my laptop to be a really expensive doorstop. Any advice?
