Re: Attempting to prolong laptops life
There is a very good chance the power port on your laptop is damaged. If you are skilled in soldering this is no problem, I wasn't when this happened to me. I had this exact situation and ended up dropping $500 on a new motherboard since eventually the port went completely out.
