Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Packard Bell Easynote R0422 and it is no longer switiching or charging. I was using it and it starting making some noise. I pulled the top of the laptop down for me to see smoke coming out of the port where the AC charger goes. I pulled it out and the laptop switched itself off. I thought that was the definate end of it but I switched it on and it booted for me to see the XP login screen. I shut it down and tried to see whether the problem was the laptop or the charger. So I put the lead back into the computer and saw that the light on the charger was flickering so I thought it was the charger and went out and bought a new 1. Only for me to discover nearly 9 hours after it had occured that the laptop is no longer switching on and is no longer charging at all.
There is a smell coming from the electrical port of the laptop like a burnt electrical smell. I hope it isn't the motherboard.
Can someone please help me.
Sounds like a bad dc port, but if it was smokeing and has a burned smell i m betting it burned the board
