Hello. This has likely been asked before, but I'm getting really irritated and need the help. I have a MSI A6200 laptop, and a little while ago it stopped charging when plugged in. I tried taking the battery out and powering up, nothing. I tried shaking the machine to see if the power jack was loose, not the problem. I tried ordering a replacement power cord in case the original cord was messed up somewhere, nothing. I'm worried that it might be the motherboard, but does anyone else have any other ideas of what it might be, bar soldering any parts because I don't have access to the technology?
Have you tried opening up your laptop to check the connections of the power jack? This might help you pinpoint the problem. Simply opening up and checking connections can be very helpful. (For instance, my brother's laptop fan wasn't working, and it was simply unplugged. (Not sure how that happened though…))
If you have any electrical testing equipment, such as a multimeter, you could try testing the separate parts of the charging setup (the cord, the jack, the battery, etc.).
I had a similar issue with my Dell laptop, and Dell support said it might be a motherboard problem, but then it was fixed after they replaced the battery and the charging cord. If you still have a warranty, contact MSI.
