Question about HP Pavilion dv1420us (EH439UA) PC Notebook

2 Answers

Dead Charger You know that end of the charger that plugs into the computer itself? Apparently, that bit actually got seperated from my charger. Now I have a 6 lb paperweight sitting in my closet. If anyone knows where to get a relatively cheap charger in common stores (KMart, Walmart, Target, Sam's Club, etc.), meaning around 20 or 30 bucks, It'd be very helpful, cause I have very important data on there. And buying a new computer is not in my budget right now.

    Update: Charger bought, but I have a new problem. Whenever I am using my laptop for 2-15 minutes, it operates normally, then BOOM! Screen goes out of Windows and displays distorted image or solid color, sometimes in the BIOS HDD test. I can't test it on an external monitor because it doesn't display on it. I have a VGA out, it doesn't work.

Your local Computer store or Office supply store may have a universal one made by Targus, but it will be more expensive than these:

39.99 plus shipping.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

    I have a VGA out, it doesn't work.


    Some PCs may have that output turned off by default in the BIOS.
    Check your settings on a reboot to see if yours is one of these.

My fujitsu wont work without its charger and when the charger is plugged in it wont actually charge the battery itself.


Probably your battery is dead because if there would have been any problem with your charger port, you cant be able to use it on plugged mode. Buy a new battery ASAP.

Dell laptop wont charge battery.


The Laptop charger or the charging point itself is bad or damaged. You'll need to try different charger to take your laptop to any nearest computer repair shop to have charging point repaired or replaced.

Battery wont charge on my Mid m9100 android tablet pc


Are you sure the charger is working correctly? When you plug the charger into the tablet and into the wall, then leave it alone for half an hour, does the charger feel at all warm? Is there power to that outlet, or is it a switched outlet (like one used for a lamp)?

If the charger feels warm after half an hour, does the back of the tablet also feel warm? It may actually be charging.

If the charger is dead cold (same temperature as a table) and you're sure that it's plugged into a good outlet and correctly plugged into the tablet, then it's a good bet that the charger is dead & you need to find another.

Can you also charge that tablet with a USB cable connected to a PC? That'd be a good test. Try doing that - if that ALSO will not charge the tablet, then there may be a problem with the tablet itself.

I have a car battery charger that plugs into a cigarette lighter. However, I lost the directins & don't know if the charger itself is charged. Also, How do I use the charger if the car battery is...


I am guessing that you mean you have one of the jumpstart devices that you plug into the lighter socket? If that is the case plug it into the lighter socket turn it on and try to start the vehicle. If that doesnt work or you think the unit itself is dead plug it into the lighter socket on a vehicle that has a fully charged battery to charge it. If you post the manufacturer, model and name of your charger we may be able to find a manual for it than i can answer your question better

I can't get the computer to recognize the charger. It flashes between battery and charger unless the charger is being pushed in. I have tried numerous chargers with the same result.


With the charger unplugger, look inside the plug end that you plug into the pc. On occaision, the center pin may be damaged or pushed into the plug itself. That small pin is what provides the laptop the power (wattage) info. Also if you know anyone else with Dell charger PA-10 or PA-12, try theirs. Good luck!

My Nuvi 200 will not charge and the USB port


My condolences. I would suggest you plug the unit in to your computer's USB port using an appropriate data cable (in case you no longer have the Garmin data cable, there are lots of devices, including cameras, that use such a cable with the large USB plug at one end and the mini-USB at the other). That would give you a handle on where the fault lies -- in the auto charger cable itself vs the nuvi's socket. If the nuvi charges from your computer, you're halfway home; if not, I suspect the cost of repairing the nuvi's USB jack could exceed the cost of a replacement unit.

take an ohm meter you can buy for ten bucks at radio shack put the volt meter on DC volts plug the charger into the battery charger end the black lead goes tothe outside and the red goes inside, set the meter for 12 volts dv and mesure the voltage. read the voltage output on the battery charger transformer see if it's within a half volt if not the charger is bad, if it's ok then use rubbing achol and a q tip to clean the battery connectors on the computer and the battery itself, if you do not get the light then pull the battery out and hold the power button in the on postion and hold the enter key for 1 minute and try again, if the lights do not come back on your battery is dead, if the computer will still boot with the battery then the charger is working if it won't boot up the battery is dead. Got it?

How do I recharge my Tom Tom One?


I talked to TomTom support about recharging. They say that the unit uses more power than it gets, but if you turn the power off while the car is running, it will recharge.
