This is pending doom for your systems mother board if you do not replace the power supply, the first thing you will notice is the loss of use with your USB ports if this happens the next thing will be the video and other motherboard components, You should unplug the power from the wall and get a replacement power supply, If you would like to save a few dollars, you could use a universal power adaptor, stay away from the RadioShack you will save money there. The power supply from HP is a little over 1 hundred dollars- the after market power supplys should run about $35.00 to $65.00.

Why do dimmer light switches run hot to the touch?


Dimmer should be warm... but never HOT
7 x 65 = 455 watt
Dimmers are rated 600 watt to 1500 watt

Sounds like you have bad dimmer.

Can i use any charger on s505


The Toshiba Satellite 5205 series of Notebook PC, and the S505 series model; uses an AC adapter (Charger) that produces 15 Volts DC.

http://www.sparepartswarehouse.com/Toshiba,Satellite,5205,PS520U-31P1RV,Laptop,AC-Adapters.aspx

You will see AC adapters sold that show 15 to 24 Volts. (DC)

http://www.duracelldirect.com/toshiba_satellite-5205-s505_ac-adapters_laptop_ac-b20h.aspx

This is because the AC adapter (Charger) has PFC.
Power Factor Correction,

Also I see it is just a two pin AC adapter plug, to laptop.
Center hole is Positive, outer metal cylindrical metal shell is Negative.

Go for 75 Watts or higher though, and not a 65 Watt model.

[ On the case of the AC adapter;
Input: 100 ~ 240 VAC 50-60Hz

Means it can use from 100 to 240 Volts AC, and either 50 or 60 Hertz.

Output: 15VDC 6A

Means 15 Volts DC at 6 Amp's. (Amperes)

Watch the outside dimension of the cylindrical part, and the center hole dimension. Outside cylinder may be correct, but center hole may be too small. Or vice-versa.

When I started my DELL Inspiron 1525 running Win 7 Ultimate, I got a white-on-black screen which questioned the voltage from power adapter. Diagnostic program run.. Stopped with the following msg: Error...


2000-0142 and 2000-0146 are hard drive SMART errors, indicating the HDD will fail.
To boot message about the AC adapter was a BIOS level message that normally appears when a Auto/air ac adapter or other 65 watt ac adapter is used to power the system.

How do I get my computer to recognized my new ac power adapter?


The computer doesn't need any drivers to recognize an AC Adapter. If you have purchased the correct AC Adapter for your laptop then it should just work when you plug it in. If it does not then my guess is either you have received a faulty AC Adapter or the DC Jack which you plug into in the back of the laptop is bad.
I am assuming your battery is dead and when you plug it in and turn it on nothing happens?
You can also try taking the battery out and try to power it on with the AC Adapter plugged in.

The Dell Latitude D610 takes a PA-10 or PA12 AC Adapter. It's 65W or 90W

For 90 watt Adapter the output voltage on your AC Adapter label should read 19.5V and 4.62A
At least that's what the Dell brand reads so it should be close to that.

There are isues with HP external power supplies - if it is a dv7-3xxx series you require AC Smart adapter (120 watt) - 100-240VAC input, 50-60Hz, 2.5A - 18.5VDC output, 6.5A, Pt No 463953-001

for earlier models require AC Smart power adapter (90 watt) - 100-240VAC input, 47-63Hz - 19.0VDC output, 4.74A, 90 watts, with power factor correction (PFC) 463955-001
If you are within the warranty period utilize that warranty if not contact HP and see what price a replacement external power pack is.

HP DV9000 Display Works with battery not AC almost


Have you checked whether the Power Adapter of your Notebook is a 65 Watt or 90 Watt ??

If you are connecting a 65 Watt adapter with the Notebook, try wiht a 90 watt one from any other Notebook if available..

Notebooks with Nvidia Graphic card need a 90 Watt Power adapter to supply the adaquent power required for the Graphic Card and a 65 Watt adapter may not be able to supply the required power.
