I have a laptop that will not turn on. From what I understand it is not the battery or the charger ( the charger is brand new ), what part do I need to fix it and is it difficult to install that part? I got the laptop for free and would really like to get it working.

When you plug the charger in, does the battery charging light come on?

Does the cable feel loose inside the computer?

If it's jiggling, that's not good. Either your power port is broken, or your battery isn't holding a charge. The only way to tell, is to take the battery out of the laptop, plug it into the wall, and try to turn it on. If it still doesn't turn on, then your power port's fucked.

Yeah, it's an unfortunate problem for laptops.
