What kind of laptop is it? and the main cause of sparks is that the part of the laptop which accepts the energy plug is touching some other metal part inside the laptop and is causing those sparks.

best option is to have it checked my a professional.

Ac keeps shutting


Hi,
Remove the battery and plug in the AC adapter. If you can not power on the laptop, your AC adapter has gone bad on you and will need to be replaced.

If it will turn on with the AC adapter, place the battery while the laptop is on. See if it registers the battery as charging in the task bar. If not, there may be something wrong with the battery or the components connecting to the battery within the laptop.
Also you can below steps to check:
1) take the battery out of your laptop and the laptop charger
2) plug your laptop charger in your laptop without the battery in it,
3) Try to turn it on the normal way:
If it turns on, then your battery has gone, (Its drained and run out of use like all batteries do)
if it stays off then its a charger problem
You would want to hope its a charger problem as they are cheap and easily replaceable
Hope i helped
I guess its a charger problem because its not turning on and the laptop automatically would use the charger as a main power supply if the battery doesn't work
and oh by the way
If the battery isn't in it, your laptop will act as a pc whereas if you plug the charger in it will work, but if you take it out while the laptop is on then it will go off instantly without a successful shutdown which could mean a loss of work

Rahul

Step 1:
If your laptop charger seems broken, it's most likely because the battery will not charge. You plug in the cord, the lights come on, but the charging light doesn't change or blinks repeatedly. When you remove the power cord, the laptop shuts off instantly due to the depleted battery. There's more than one cause for this, and it's not always a broken charger.

Check the connection between the charger and the laptop. It should fit firmly in the DC jack without wiggling. If it is loose, use electrical tape to hold it in place so the charger can receive power. This is a temporary fix, however, because a faulty connection can create sparks and cause a fire or injury. A loose connection will just get worse over time, so have it sent to a DC jack specialist as soon as possible. Turn off the laptop and flip it upside down. Locate the latch that secures the battery and slide open. The battery should pop out; give it a tug if it doesn't. Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol (Methylated Spirits)to the tip of a cotton swab and use it to clean the battery's connectors. Dirt can build up and interfere with the connection, giving the appearance of a broken charger. Let the alcohol dry completely and re-insert the battery. Slide the latch to secure it and plug in the power cord to test it. See if the laptop powers on with the charger only and battery removed. If it does, the battery is the likely culprit and should be replaced. If the charger is truly broken, the only thing to do is to replace it or the power cord attached to it. Look on the bottom and write down the part number. Call the laptop manufacturer for a replacement charger or search for the part number on eBay. If you purchase from anyone other than the original manufacturer, ask for genuine parts to reduce the possibility of problems. Troubleshoot Mag Safe adaptors

Laptop charger smells


Laptops (esp. older ones) should never be left plugged in 24/7. You need to stop using the charger (the problem is only in the charger and NOT the laptop?) and replace it. The burning smell is something overheating which can lead to a fire and sparks are rarely a good sign.

I'd cut the cord on the charger, so it can't be used again and replace it.

Okay if my gateway m285 pc tablet wont turn on how do i know if its the charger or the battery itself?


just do a simple test. plug your charger in AC mains, at the jack end, insert a wire and then try to make instant contact with the jacket of the jack. you will see a brief spark. If spark is there, it means your adapter is good. rest you know that if charger is ok and still laptop is not working it means that there is something wrong with the power section inside the laptop. Even with a bad battary, if adapter is good, laptop will work, provided power section of the laptop should be ok.
cheers

My Laptop charger is not working


Srivastav,What you have described indicates that the charger has gone. And unfortunately these things can not be repaired. In the past two months I have had to replace three chargers due to spikes or high voltage. Too bad. So, please replace the charger and see your laptop running again. And use a good voltage stabilizer that has cuts high voltage.

I CONNECT THE CHARGER AND THE CHARGER DON'T CHARGE THE LAPTOP. NOW I I REMOVE THE LAPTOPS BATTERY AND PLUG IN THE CHARGER AND THE SAME THING HAPPENS THERE'S NO LIGHTS, NO POWER AND THE BATTERY IS DEAD....


Hello,

There are 2 possible problems with your notebook.

1) Adaptor/Charger problem. (common)
2) Notebook power problem. (slight)

To check if there is a problem with your charger.

a) Plug in charger to any wall socket.
b) Get a small solid wire (prefferably insulated).
c) insert one end of the wire to the positive point of the adapter or the inner side of adapter.
d) scratch the outer side of the adapter using the other end of the wire to check for sparks. a spark is highly visible on a 12v power.
e) if no spark is created, then there could have been a problem with your charger.

Hope this helps.
