Can't connect scanner to laptop.

The cord on my scanner (HP scanjet 4600) cannot plug into the laptop. The prongs on the scanner cord are aligned differently than the opening on the laptop. Is there an adapter?

    Yes. Should there have been an adapter cable with the scanner?

It looks like there is no Win8 driver available at present. The joys of a new OS!

Toshiba SAT A505-S6005 Power cord was plugged when laptop fell to the floor and hit where the cord attaches to the receptical (on computer) which jammed (pushed) the thin connector prong further into

When this happens it means that the whole recepticle has been broken off of the motherboard and the whole laptop will have to be disassembled. This is not an easy job for someone who hasn't done one before. After it's disassembled it has to be determined if the recepticle can be resoldered or not. Sometimes the damage is not repairable. Good luck!

Please describe your how to hook up and compaq nc6220 to a tv. I have tried an adaptor with the three prong yellow/white/red to a video adaptor but no luck.

The easiest way to hook up any laptop to a tv is with either an HDMI cord, or an Svideo cord. It looks like your laptop supports Svideo, but make sure your TV supports it as well. The connection should look similar to this: snowyrat_0.jpg
If your TV does have the port, go to a nearby electronics store, and buy an Svideo cord. An employee there should be able to help you find one for a fairly decent price. If your TV doesn't have an Svideo slot, you should be able to get an Svideo to AV converter cord along with your Svideo cord. You can connect the Svideo to your laptop and the Svideo slot in the converter, then plug the AV cords into your TV. Hope this helps!

When I first plugged it in the laptop was beeping saying to connect to power cord or charge the battery. It was already plugged in. While I was away from my desk the laptop looked to have home into sleep...


I know this may sound crazy but was the power cord switched on and did you check that the cord was not seperated where it joins
also can you get your hands on another power cord to try as yours may be faulty

Laptop has 3-prong cord, house has 2-prong recept. adapter safe?

Yes ... If I am going to plug in my $1500.00 laptop in to an outlet, I wait to charge or run, not cook. I don't know how you feel about that. Are you a USA resident? Are you using 110 VAC or 220 VAC? Plug your laptop in only if the power is known to you.

The best way to overcome this problem is to have an electrician update at least one outlet in each of your different homes to the standard, three prong plug, which was established in the USA more 40 years ago.

Thanks for your interest in

No sound on s video to TV

S-Videois video only. You need to a cable to connect the laptop headphone jack to the left and right audio jacks on your TV or receiver.

To turn on an HP, make sure you have the AC adapter plugged in properly, and press the power key. But since you imply it has been a while since this was on, I suggest removing the battery BEFORE you start the first time.

The power key is identified by an ICON best described this way: a circle with a vertical line in the center. The vertical line is sometimes centered in the circle without touching any edges, and sometimes it is crossing the top of the circle slightly.

Once you have started the laptop and get to an OS desktop, you should check everything out to make sure everything works.

Then SHUT down, remove the power supply, insert the battery, reattach the power supply and start again.

Monitor the battery charge progress carefully. If the battery fails to charge, it will need to be replaced. This is because no matter how new a battery is, if it is left for extended periods in an uncharged state (or worse, fully depleted state) the battery will usually be defective. It cannot ever be recharged because at least one cvell will be dead.

As for the power cord, using a three-prong plug will be useless if you do not have a 3-prong jack and 3-wire cable. but if you do, you can cut off the useless 2-prong euro plug, strip the 3 wires and install a 3-lug grounded plug. Pay attention to the polarity then, because it is critical on 3 wire connections. In USA, black, white and green are the color codes. Green is the ground. In Europe, the colors are different and varies widely. Blue or brown will be the ground. You will need a VTVM to trace the continuity to the other end, to identify which is load, neutral and ground (earth). Be careful. Ifr you connect AC load to ground, you may damage your PSU -or the HOUSE !!!! :)
