The reason why the adapter is running extremely hot is that either it is faulty and it's capacity too low for your laptop requirements.
Check the voltage and current requirements of your laptop, it is printed on a label on the bottom ofthe laptop.
The power adapter you require should be the same voltage and current (amps) or higher current rating that what is printed on the laptop label.

My power supply cord doesn't stay connected to the laptop. Is it possible to replace the part in the laptop that the cord connects to?


The power receptacle in the laptop (where you plug the AC adapter cord) has failed. Sometimes the center pin of the connector breaks off, sometimes the solder joints on the main board fail, sometimes there's a break between the connector contacts and the motherboard contacts. In all these instances, you or the technician has to gain clear access to the laptop's motherboard to make the repair. In order to get this done, you might need clear disassembly instructions, as well as decent soldering skills. You could get a replacement connector usually for less than $10, but the repair charge can be several hundred dollars for some models if you take it to a local shop.

Charging power cord doesn't fit snug therefore doesnt charge battery


Is this the original power adapter, or a replacement. If it's an original and you're having this problem, then you're probably going to need to get the female DC Jack on the motherboard re-soldered or replaced. If your power supply\adapter isn't the original one, then it could be that the replacement you got is not the correct replacement for your laptop. It could still also be that your female DC Jack has gone bad and needs to be re-soldered or replaced. Those are the 2 most likely reasons for your problem of the battery not charging.

Bought a new power cord because I had to keep moving cord around to get battery to charge, move and would lose charge received new power cord and still have to move cord around to keep getting a charge...


First thing you need to do is STOP trying to wiggle the cord to make it work. You could damage the motherboard.

The power jack needs to be replaced. It's a pretty standard repair. You can try finding a local laptop tech from Craigslist or visit your local shop.

This type of repair usually runs 70-100 out the door (depending on where you live)

I don't recommend you trying to fix it yourself.

My battery won't charge on my laptop. It gives me a message that says: The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. But I have my AC adapter plugged in and the little blue light does come on. I can't...


There at least three possible reasons for your problem.
.
1) You are using the wrong charger, or
2) Your battery may be defective, or
2) If you are using the original charger that came with your laptop, it may be defective, or
3) Your laptop charging port may need to be replaced.

You need to take your laptop to a local computer repair shop to have the problem correctly diagnosed.

My battery shows up. says 0% remaining (charging), but it never charges and shuts off as soon as the power cord is unpluged.


1) Could be the battery is bad.
2) The charging port could be damaged
3) The adapter charge cord could be damaged
4) If not too expensive, I'd try a new battery first or better yet, if you could find someone with a like model to test their battery in your pc and see if it charges in your machine.
5) Ask a local shop if they'd be able to troubleshoot it for you.

Pin from motherboard is broken. No more power


You'll need to replace the power jack.

Most shops / techs charge $75-100 but that depends on your location.

If you do itself it's about $10 for the jack.

You can get them on eBay fairly easy.

This type of repair is not covered under warranty.

Best of luck!

I have a compaq presario 700 laptop that is no longer charging.


The notebook battery may have a defect if it will not power on the notebook and if it will not hold a charge. The battery indicator light on the notebook either does not light or always blinks orange. The notebook operates correctly when connected to the AC adapter.
A battery that will not charge may be the result of an AC adapter failure, a system board failure, or a battery failure. Perform the steps below to diagnose the failure.
Troubleshoot the power supply
To verify that the AC power supply is functioning properly, follow the steps below.

1.
Plug the AC adapter directly into a functioning wall outlet, and plug connector into the computer. Do not plug into a power strip, surge protector or secondary power source.
2.
Verify the following operation and take the appropriate action:
*
That all power cord connections are secure.
If the AC adapter connection to the notebook is loose, the connector may be damaged and require repair. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
*
That the power button or power LED is lit when the computer is on.
*
That an LED on the AC power supply adapter is lit when plugged into an AC wall outlet (not available on all AC power supply adapters).
*
That the AC power supply adapter is the correct type.
Different notebook models require different AC power supply adapters. You will need to know the Product Number of your notebook to determine the Part Number of the replacement part. Click Start > HP Help & Support to view the product name, product number, and serial number that you'll need to have to speak with HP Customer Service.
View the See Also section for information about locating HP Help & Support in your operating system.

Troubleshoot the System Board
If you've verified that the AC power functions properly, troubleshoot the PC's system board by following the steps below.

1.
Remove the battery, and keep the notebook connected to AC power.
2.
Press and release the Power button to start the computer.
*
If the notebook PC powers on , then the AC adapter and system board are functioning properly. Go to Troubleshoot the battery .
*
If the Power LED is off , then the AC power adapter needs to be replaced. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance.
*
If the power LED is on , but the notebook PC does not power on, then the notebook PC needs to be repaired. Contact HP Service and Support for further assistance.
3.
Shut down Windows by selecting Shut Down from the Start Menu.

Troubleshoot the battery
If you have verified the AC power supply and system board are functioning correctly, troubleshoot the battery by following the steps below.

1.
Insert the battery into the battery compartment on the bottom of the notebook PC.
2.
Connect the AC power supply and allow the battery to charge for 15 to 30 minutes.
NOTE: The Battery Charging light should be on while the battery is charging. If it is not on, check the AC power adapter connection to the notebook PC.
3.
Unplug the AC power adapter cord from the notebook PC.
4.
Press and release the Power button to start the computer using only the battery as the power source.
*
If the PC does not power on, then the battery needs to be replaced. Contact HP service and support for further assistance.
*
If the notebook PC does power on, the battery is functioning properly.
NOTE: If you have purchased a second battery for your notebook PC or you have access to an identical battery, you can also check the battery by inserting the second battery into the PC and performing the Troubleshoot the battery steps again.

Charger/power cord not working


your problem might not be the AC adapter but the AC jack of your laptop. if you cant keep a charging icon steady then maybe the AC jack of your laptop is loose already. you might need the help of a guy knowledgeable in electronics to help you out with this one.
