When you connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's power socket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DC plug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltage should be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on the bottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that is printed on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Battery wont charge


Is it a different charger? If it isn't try plugging it into a car or at home on the computer or the wall. If that doesn't work maybe getting it checked out will help.

My laptop wont charge i think it has a broken internal power supply


Bad cord/charger, bad battery? What give you the idea that " i think it has a broken internal power supply" Your saying your laptop will not charge the battery? Does the laptop work? If so the power supply is OK.

Can you charge the 1440 using a usb to the computer?


For the software version: In the menu go to "Product Information" you will find it there.

If your GPS receiver has power pin port and a USB port the internal battery cannot be charged using your computer. You must use the supplied vehicle power adapter to charge the receiver's internal battery.

If your GPS receiver only contains a USB port it can be charged by your computer however we recommend using the supplied Vehicle Power Adapter.

Charging the internal battery using your computer may take up to 12 hours. Charging the internal battery using he supplied Pehicle power Adapter takes 4 - 6 hours. The receiver can be powered on or off while charging.

Power problem - led shows the ac plug is in - battery does not charge - can not run laptop on ac adapter - what is causing this problem


Hi,
The connection to the power supply inside the Pc is or has gone,
because your using the connection 1000 times a year, it faulters, and fails.

$150/$200 to get repaired.
Strip out the laptop solder connection back up,
rebuild, very common problem.

Regards
Richard.

Sorry to say, power supply for laptop is harder to repair then PC (but repair able). You will need to get access to the board.
Maybe get a standalone battery charger ?
