Hi
you can customize your power management in windows by:
1- right click on an empty place on the desktop.
2- Select Properties, then select Secreen Saver, and click on Power.
3- You now get access to The Power Options Properties where you can change anything you want.

If you want to change the voltage level, you need to move the button on the AC/DC device to the right or the left. But! be careful, high voltage can cause your laptop to cut off. So, alwasy try the level under the one you using now.

Problem with HP 8510q laptop charging. Charging not working. Laptop working only that time when i have power in battery. Charging light not show. I try other charger but same problem. Is it inside some...


Inside? Yes. (If 'charger' is good)
Fuse?
No

Diagnostic flowchart:

A) AC adapter (Charger), has to be KNOWN to be good, before going on.
Used on a working laptop to see, or multimeter is used to check Voltage (DC)

The plug end that goes to the laptop, from the AC adapter, has a Center Hole, and a cylindrical outside metal shell.

The Function knob is set to DC Voltage. If just a symbol, the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line.
If more than one DC Voltage scale, the Function knob is set to the 0-50 Volt DC scale.

The Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter goes to the Center Hole, and the Negative (Black) probe lead of the multimeter, goes to the cylindrical outside metal shell.

You should be reading 19 Volts DC.

Also have an assistant gently wiggle the cable FROM AC adapter TO laptop, and the power cable TO AC adapter.
If there is a fluctuation on the reading, there is a broken wire, or wires, in one of those cables.

B) Check the DC Power Jack.
This is the jack on the laptop (DC_IN) that the AC adapter plugs into.

Has a Center Pin, and an inner cylindrical metal shell.
Battery removed, use an eraser on the end of a No.2 pencil, and see if you can GENTLY wiggle the Center Pin around.

ANY perceptible movement of the CENTER PIN, means replacing the DC Power Jack,
(By the way, is it an 8510p, or 8510w?)

http://www.alldcjacks.com/en/ppj052-laptop-dc-power-jack.html

Any movement of the rest of the DC Power Jack (Body), means replacing it; or may just mean the solder joints are cracked, and can be re-soldered.

C) AC adapter and DC Power Jack checks out?
Problem may be with Power MOSFET's on the motherboard, and associated MLCC's.

(Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitor, and they are SMD/SMT just like the Power MOSFET's.
Surface Mount Device/ Surface Mount Technology)

How do i change out the charger port of my gateway p-6301? I believe this is the issue... I have tried replacing the battery and power cord, but it still will not detect that the cord is plugged in.


Hi,


Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

Advent N270 netbook will not charge. Orange light comes on initially then goes off. Also when I wiggle the plug into the laptop the light flashes on and intermittently.


It sounds like either a bad connection on the motherboard or a broken wire in the adapter making intermittent connection.

1. With the power adapter disconnected, do you have a power light? This would indicate the adapter is good and the plug is questionable.

2. Check your power adapter output with a multi-meter.(be sure to wiggle the wires around) If the power fluctuates, replace the plug.

3. If the power is solid, replace the motherboard connector.

HP Compaq laptop won't charge/power from AC due to blown fuse


Hi there,

There's plenty of causes why your laptop would not power up from the AC adapter and won't charge the battery. Here are some possible causes and solutions to this problem:

Number one, if it's on battery power, the battery is dead or the battery is bad and number two the AC adapter could be bad. Let's roll out number one.

1. Take out the battery, remove main supply, hold power button down for 30 seconds. This will drain the charges in your

battery. Put only power supply in, do not put battery in, turn laptop on, put the battery in.

2. If the solution in no.1 doesn't solve the problem, pull the battery out, keep the battery out of the laptop for this test.

Take your AC adapter and check the voltage with a voltmeter. What you want to test for is voltage. Put the meter at 20

volts DC and take the tip, the power jack tip of your AC power adapter. You hold the black, (the negative part) of your

voltmeter on the outside of the power jack tip of your AC adapter and you put the red (the positive part) of your voltmeter

in the hole in the inside of the power jack tip of your AC adapter. Be very careful not to touch the red and the black part of

your multimeter and the power jack tips of your AC adapter together, otherwise it will create a short circuit.

After doing these procedures, if your AC adapter is good it will output a voltage which ranges from 18 to 19V DC on your

voltmeter, depending on the voltage that puts out on your AC power adapter. If your voltmeter doesn't show any voltage,

probably your AC power adapter is bad or damaged. But if your voltmeter shows up voltage, then we have to go to the

next possible cause why your laptop won't power on.

3. The dc jack on your laptop might be bad, if the dc jack on your laptop is bad or not making a connection to the

motherboard then it look the battery is bad as well, because the battery is now not holding a charge or even taking a

charge. Also, even if your AC power adapter is good and when you insert it to the dc jack in your laptop it could not power

up the laptop because the dc jack is not making a connection to your laptop motherboard in other words the dc jack might

got loose, that's why it's not making any connection to the motherboard. The only way to solve this is that you have to

disassemble your laptop, and take the laptop motherboard out and look where the dc jack is connected. After you found it,
take a file tool and file off a spot on the motherboard where you can reattach the power jack and use a wire to reattach

the power jack to the motherboard.

Hope you find this answer helpful. God bless.

Battery wont change


A problem is just like a mountain. You don't jump over the mountain, you climb it in steps, one step at a time.

1.How old is the battery? 1 to 2 years old, you can expect it to be at the end of it's Life Cycle. Batteries are rated in so many hours of usage.
Best bet is to let the battery charge 24 hours, then try it.

Would be nice if you someone else that has an Inspiron 1525, and they would try to charge your battery. If it doesn't charge up, you would know it's the battery. If it does charge up you can move on down the charging system, to try to find the problem.

2.AC adapter, (Charger) If you have a multimeter, set it to the 50 volt DC scale.
Laptop and desktop computers use DC current. (Direct Current) Your house, for example, uses AC current, (Alternating Current)
AC is converted to DC by the AC adapter, (Charger)

An example of DC current are flashlight batteries, and your laptop battery.
DC current has a Positive pole, and a Negative pole.
The center pin of the plug of your AC adapter is the Positive pole. Any of the four outside pins on the plug, are Negative.
The Red, (Positive), probe of the multimeter goes to the center pin. The Black, (Negative), probe goes to any of the outside four pins on that plug.
Example of a DC Power Jack, for the Dell Inspiron 1500 Series of laptops, 1525 and 1526, (This is the jack inside your laptop, where you plug the AC adapter into),
http://www.megaemarket.com/dc-power-jack-for-dell-inspiron-150150015011505.html

3.It may be that DC Power Jack itself is bad, or one of the solder connections is cracked. It's hard to see it clearly on the link I provided, (So I Right-clicked on it, Save Image As, and put it right in my My Pictures folder. Then I magnified it), but in the photo you will see some metal pins sticking out of the rectangular body.

The metal pins are sticking up. In reality those pins go down, when the jack is mounted on the motherboard. They go through the motherboard, via holes, and are soldered on the other side.
It is these solder joints that may crack, is what I'm referring to.

Solution to 1?
Obviously buy a new battery.

Solution to 2?
If your multimeter findings show lower voltage than needed, it's time to buy a new AC adapter. They have generic ones that can be used on a variety of laptops. The voltage will be stated on the top of the AC adapter.
Example: 19.2V-1.0A
That's 19.2 Volts at 1 AMP.

It may just be the plug end on the AC adapter itself. The plug end that goes into the DC Power Jack, on your Inspiron laptop.

Solution to 3?
Unless you are a skilled Electronics Technician, and have Excellent de-soldering/soldering skills, I advise taking it to a computer repair shop. It may not just be cracked solder joints. The DC Power Jack may need to be replaced. Maybe the motherboard is one of a bad design, and where the DC Power Jack attaches to it, has cracked.

No ac power but plugged in


If you plugged in the ac adapter, and you still get no power and cannot turn it on, the first thing to check is the AC adapter. Get a voltage meter, set it to 200 DC, put the positive on the inside and the ground on the outside. Unless you have a highpower alienware laptop, it should read +/- 20 V, most likely 19.xx. If your AC adapter is good, then the DC jack, what the adapter plugs into, is bad. In this case, the laptop will have to be disassembled, the mother boared removed, the old DC jack de-soldered and taken off, and a new DC jack soldered on. You would really need to take it to a qualified techninician at a shop to di it.

When i plug in my charger to my laptop it doesnt work and i dont know whats wrong with it


This issue can be caused by any of the below possibilities. 1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge.
2.- Battery is bad.
3.- Battery charger board is bad.

Solutions:
1.- Computer AC / DC cable is bad not allowing the computer battery to charge
Verify that the AC and or DC cable is not bad by testing the computer only with the power plug connected and the battery out of the laptop.
2.- Battery is bad
It is possible that if the power plug is good that the computer battery is bad. Leave the computer connected to the power with the battery connected in the computer for at least one hour; if the battery does not charge, consider having the battery and/or the laptop serviced or repaired.
If the computer and/or battery is not in warranty consider just replacing the battery as it is very likely that it is just a bad battery.
3.- Battery charger board is bad
If the battery has been replaced or an alternate battery from an alternate identical laptop does not work in the computer, it is likely that the power or charger board within the laptop is bad. It is recommended that the laptop be serviced or repaired.


This will fix your problem.
