INSPIRON 6000 laptop?

Do you have any problems with the power cable jack plug?

Mine keeps falling out all the time :mad:

I've got an Inspiron 5100 laptop, but I've never had that problem.

It pulls out easily if the cable's caught on something and I move the computer, but it doesn't fall out on its own.

The power supply does get VERY hot though.

My wife works at Dell - just asked her about it, and although she works on the services side of things and not hardware, she has suggested if it's still under warranty (how old is it?) - to get Dell to send you another power cable. This will hopefully cure the problem.

If it's out of warrenty, then still call the Dell helpline and ask them what they think - they may sell you another cable - or failing that go to PC World or another outlet.

Hope this helps - annoying though isn't it! ;)

What's up with this exploding battery mumbo jumbo :incheek:

I've had my dell (the right model) for ages, and nothing's gone wrong. But it says, if it explodes, I get a brand new todays version of the computer....which means I'll get an XPS ... if the laptop is ruined by the battery exploding.

Check the reg number on the battery - and check against the list on the Dell website. If it appears on there then call Dell and tell them - don't know what they'll do though - new battery I s'pose can't see them giving away new computers!! ;)
