Repair damaged laptop power plug
When I connect it to the power jack the computer starts up but then the power drops.
Can you think of a reason why?
The power jack seems to be fine. The computer starts up perfectly with a different HP power unit.
I haven't checked it with a multimeter yet.
I tried to use thick aluminum foil around the damaged part but it didn't work.
With no replacement HP power plug is my only option to replace both the plug and the jack with some other male-female power plugs?
