I recently replaced the pwr jack on my HP laptop. Before replacing the pwr jack the laptop would bootup if I held the adapter plug at a certain angle. But since I replaced the pwr jack the laptop will not even turn on. What could have happened. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Obviously you'd need to hold the new power adapter at that "certain" angle so the battery can charge. Yep, hold it there for at least 5 minutes (or prop it). Then try and start it.

Can you confirm all the inputs/outputs are exactly the same on the new one? Match them up with the old one.

Try taking the battery out for a few minutes, then put it back in, plug the charger back in and try it again.

I finally got the lights to come on but the computer does not boot up( it did before I replaced the old pwr jack.) Could I have damaged something while taking apart the computer or could something be loose?

I am a newbie at computers.I have read several books and also studying for my A+ cert.exam and built my first desk top PC.
