Gateway 405ROG AC Adapter Output Polarity

I have a 406ROG but no AC adapter. I have other 19 VDC adapters but before I try one, I would like to know if the polarity is correct.

Could you measure the DC voltage at the output connector of a 405ROG adapter and tell me the polarity (+ or -) of the outer shell and the inner contact of the connector.

Thank you for any information that you provide.

It doesn't matter if its + or - , make sure the pc runs on 19 volts and that the AC adapter does also, look underneath the laptop to find out if it does run on 19 volts but make sure the power jack fits the socket o the laptop before plugging it in to the mains

What is the power output of ac dc adapter in jensen jta 460? Can this adaptor be changed with 220volt ac dc adapter with required dc output?


For Any Adapter:
As long as the Voltage and Power output of the power supply (wall outlet or other) matches the input requirements for the adapter whether 110V or 220V.at enough amp output; and
IFF the dc output of the adapter is exactly the same voltage and has for amps at a minimum matches the maximum amperage requirement for the input of the device, any of them will work, as long as it has the right connector with the correct polarity needed for the device!

Or, in other words...

Supply Output V = Adapter Input V
and
Adapter Output V = Device V
Adapter Output A(min) >= Device A(max)

Power adapter is good, but Gatway MX6025 will not power on. It does power on briefly with battery installed. I've tested the ac adapter with a multimeter and it appears to be good. Green light on,...


Try to check with another adapter if possible.
The connector of the laptop might be damaged. so the battery is not charging and also not staring laptop on AC power. Check the ac connector of laptop.

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.

The adapter could be faulty or has failed slightly and is below the operating limits. This means you probably need to replace the power adapter.

i would try purchasing a universal laptop charger on ebay and see if it works. they are under 25 bux. worse case scenario you will have a backup ac adapter. be careful plugging in other ac adapters because the polarity could be wrong or it could have to much amps

Just bought a second hand acer travelmate 4200. I have never owned a lap top. How do I change from using battery power to outlet power


On the left side, towards the rear is a DC jack. Plug the power cord in there. It should automatically start operating on AC power, and charge the battery.

I have a dell vostro 1500 laptop when i press power sw. the power led lits for a second then turns off again nothing else done


This normally is an indication that the AC adapter is not powering the system and the remaining residual power in the battery only powers the system momentarily. Things to try:
  1. If available, try a different AC adapter. If no known good adapter is available, then use a multimeter to see if 19 VDC is available in the DC connector. If system powers up on a different adapter, or the Adapter has no power at the DC connection, replace the adapter.
  2. Remove all drives, Memory, battery, and wireless cards, and see if the system powers on. If it does, add 1 RAM module, and see if the system boots. If it does, add other components back one at a time until you ID the failure. If system doesn't change, then replace the motherboard.

Gateway MX6428 Power Problem


faulty wiring in the wall (hopefully not) or the AC adapter try another adapter or outlet

Battery not recharging.


Look on the charger itself & it will have the correct output voltage & polarity stamped on the charger. Then get a volt meter to verify if the correct output voltage is present. If the volt meter reads less than what is stamped on the charger, then I would recommend replacing the charger at that point.
