RE: Dell Studio 1558 Charging Problem


I presume your system does not power on anymore. If it is so, then read on:

So, as per the video, I see that the light on the power adapter goes off when connected to the system.

There could be 3 causes of this, in this order:

Power adapter - Test the system with another power adapter and see if it works.

DC Port - the port where you connect the adapter might be shorted out and needs to be replaced - this is the part you need - http://bit.ly/2bZgPXB

Motherboard - which is my primary suspected part, if another adapter and dc port does not work, then the motherboard needs to be replaced. 

If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

You could also choose to purchase the parts from the 3rd party seller - link above.

Personally, I would suggest you to invest your money in a new machine than to repair this old system.

Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

Let us know if you have any other queries.
