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.

Xantrex inverter/ charger smells like burning electrical


I would call or e-mail the manufacturer of the inverter. The dealer or dealers may know the issue but likely the manufacturer will be more help.
Some devices like an inverter will have a smell in the beginning, power supplies are like that. You said that the inverter didn't get hot but smell indicates something is hot.

Notebook smells like burning plastic.


cud be your onboard voltage regulator for the battery charging. if you remove the battery and use the external power source does it smell also?
if the battery charges normal out of the unit, and the laptop works well with the AC power unit without the battery, then it's your voltage regulator for the batt charging

Notebook smells like burning plastic.


If the new Targus charger is really rated correctly for your laptop, your battery isn?t charging and you smell the burning plastic coming from the laptop when you plug it in that is a fairly dangerous situation and you shouldn?t plug it back in anymore. The power from the charger runs through a PCB board which distributes power to other components in your laptop. I suspect one of the components (probably a capacitor) had a catastrophic failure and is the cause of the smell and the lack of battery charging. Once again assuming that the Targus is the correct one for your laptop current you probably have a laptop damaged beyond home or economical repair.
