Power Sockets Repaired

Some symptoms

The laptop only works when you hold the power plug in a specific way ( power socket is broken or loose).
The laptop will not charge the battery.
The laptop gets no power at all.
The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power socket.
The power socket may feel loose.
The laptop only runs on the battery (there is no power getting through the power socket).
Sparks coming out of the rear of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the power socket.
The laptop suddenly turns off.

                     How a power socket breaks: 

On most models of laptops, the power sockets do not have enough reinforcement within the structure of the casing and motherboard to handle the stress caused by movement of the power plug.
Sometimes some power sockets simply utterly fail under normal use of their computer. On certain models, after a year or two of usage, parts just come loose.
The plug jerks the power socket loose when sometimes the laptop gets dropped.
The power socket gets broken from the laptop power cable. Who are the culprits? People, pets and yes, even vacuum cleaners.
When the power socket gets moved back and forth enough times, it becomes loose. Cause? The laptop is moved around a lot.
In some cases the power socket are not soldered onto the motherboard well.


We will thoroughly check your laptop for any other problems besides needing the power socket repair. At Computer repairs of Corsham we also replace LCDs laptop screens, memory upgrades, inverters, hard drives, fans, keyboards, and even take care of software problems. We also clean out the dust/debris from inside the laptop when we do any internal repair, such as power power socket repair!
