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.

    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.

How can you tell if your laptop battery is dead,or that your charger is bad?


Hi, if your mains plug has a fuse, I would check the fuse, if thats ok, put a multimeter on to the end of the of the charger lead and check for around 19v, it will say the exact voltage output on the sticker on your charger.

The green light malfunction indicates a issue with the charger not the battery.

Hope this helps

Best of luck

I have an ASUS X83V. All of a sudden the charger that came with the computer stopped working and the computer went dead. I purchased a compatible charger for the computer and it worked for about a week...


From the information you gave, my guess is that there's a problem with the power supply section of your laptop, or the chargers that you're buying aren't actually compatible... but it's more likely that it's the first case. If the laptop is under warranty, you should contact ASUS and get them to repalce the motherboard. If not, you could spend a lot of money replacing power cords every week. Good luck!

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!

Charger port not working.


I worked as a computer tech for 20+ years, and I still hate taking laptops apart. I strongly suggest you take it to someone who knows what they're doing, or you might end up with a useless pile of parts.

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?

Asus a6 notebook charging


If the notebook works while plugged in the it is the battery. If more than a couple years old then it may need to be replaced. First try recalibrating the battery. There maybe a utility in the BIOS, CMOS, System Setup or in the control panel to do this. If not, see if there is a utility to download from the manufacturer's site.
If the laptop does not work at all then it is probably the power jack on the motherboard. This would have to be fixed by swapping out the motherboard, replacing the jack on it or taking to a local technician.

Hope this helps!
