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.

I misplaced my power cord to my notebook. How do I determine which powercord is the ccorrect one?


A) Look on the bottom of the notebook. Usually states the Voltage (V) and Amperage (A)

Should state > Input: 18.5V/3.5A
(18.5 Volts at 3.5 Amp's)

B) Look at the charger;

The AC adapter (Charger) will state;

Input: 100 ~ 240V/50 ~ 60Hz
Output: 18.5V - 3.5A

Should look similar to this,

Compaq Armada 110 works only, when AC adapter (PSU) is connected. I changed a new battery (refurbished) and now fully charged, but when unplug AC cable power will be lost. It was same behaviour with the...


OK, check the connection IN the laptop make sure they are actually making contact and are actually working. Now IF that is all in order, then I suspect, that your Battery Charger/Internal Power Supply, has faulted, the External and Internal supplies are separate, with exception for tap off to battery charger.
I have had this many times in my shop, you can most likely buy the Power supply sub board assembly and replace it.
Below is a service manual that will show you what to do and the part numbers. Most likely Ebay will be your best bet, or go straight to Compaq or Compaq dealer for the spare parts, or use the 'net.

Compaq Presario CQ60-215DX. Doesn't start


You will need to buy a new battery, there is no way old one will be OK. To see if it works, remove battery, and use wall adapter ONLY, PC should work fine. If not maybe Flat CMOS, replace, If replace and still NO go.must be bad motherboard (maybe try charge battery 5 hours left alone)

My c500 presario won't charge and i think it's the charger. But when my battery went dead other times and i try to turn it on the lightning bolt indicator would always blink for a few secs. But now it just...


You probaly have a broken DC JACK on the motherboard. Therefore, regardless if you have a good power adapter. The power is not making a connetion to the battery because the DC JACK throught which the power flows is broken.

Try another adapter and remove the battery. If the computer is powered up using the new adapter then the old adapter is bad and the DC JACK is good. Replace the battery and if the batter charges, you can identify the old power adapter as the culprit. If the batter does not charge but the laptop powered on. Then both the battery and the charger is faulty-battery not holding charge.

Good luck

No Power vailable to Compaq R4000 PN495AV


well..this will require a new motherboard(around 200.00) and two hours of tech time(around 200.00) so compaq was high, but not that high..

check in the repair listings at fixya for more on this option
