Hi

Your best bet would be to have a look on ebay for the charger. i've posted a link. just look around a bit you will find a lot more.

As for the ac adapter frying.. looks like you have some voltage issues. use the adapter with a powerguard or power stabilizer.

My laptop starts to shut down within 20 mintues being on it. my battery don't hold up either, it gets to hot. i've tried a cooling pad also


Good day.
You haven't mention how old is your laptop. Laptop battery operating hours diminished as it gets old. This is just normal for the type of battery being used in our laptop (also in cellular phones). If your laptop is really that old, there is a need to buy a new battery pack, Just be sure of the brand/model before your buy.
In some cases, the cause of your problem is in the charger or the charging mechanism. You may test your charger/adapter using voltmeter for the actual voltage reading and comparing this to the rating stated in the outer case of the adapter. If you observed a discrepancy in the reading, then buy new adapter.

Just let me know if you need some more help.
Good luck.

The power in the battery is 0, not recharging, it is 2 month old


first you have to purchase new battery pack. while doing that you can use your laptop without battery pack. just plug the power adapter into the socket and to your laptop.
And, if the power adapter is plugged in, then still now power, you have to purchase also a power adapter.

Itermttit ac and battery power on laptop compaq presario r3000. ac sees to work fine and then goes to battery (battery discharges in less than 30 miutes) - mp


your are probably experiencing a short in your ac cable, the next time it happens wiggle the cable, if the ac pops up in the task bar stop using the charger and buy a replacement.
PS check the slot where the adapter plugs in the back of the laptop to see if its loose, if it is take to the repair shop.
compaq are known for tis problem.
