I didn't know where to post this, so here goes. I changed out the DC jack on my laptop. The battery couldn't be charged so it was drained. It was an easy fix and everything was plugged back into the proper places, but it still doesn't work. I plugged it in to charge, and nothing. Any help or advice? I'd appreciate it.

Thanks.

Apart from suggesting that the best fit might have been the "technical advice" thread (which, I'm sure, is buried deep) I have nothing useful for you, ma.

If you have a voltmeter, you can verify if the charger still works...

No... before even considering taking apart the laptop...
I'm guessing you have a charger that plugs into the wall.
You'll want to plug it in, and use the voltmeter on the end that would plug into the computer.
First, be absolutely sure the meter is set on Volts, and in the range of 25 volts or so.
Most laptops seem to be between about 17 and 20 volts.
It's possible the plug end that goes into the computer, has sockets (maybe three),too small for the probes of the meter, so you'll have to CAREFULLY put pins of some sort into two of the sockets, being certain NOT to let them touch each other. Try all the combinations of pairs, and see if any of the pairs has voltage. If you get 17 to 20 volts on any pair, I'd guess it's a good charger.

Another thing that does happen is, the battery just gets old, and stops holding a charge.

No, it doesn't. On average it happens every 7 years...

Hate to spoil the fun, but this runs around the web and people don't even think about it, just pass it on.
