Question about Samsung RV520 Laptop
1) Is it the Samsung AC adapter the laptop came with?
I ask because a generic aftermarket unit may cause this.
The laptop requires 19 Volts DC.
I have seen 60 Watt versions, and 90 Watt versions.
You do NOT want the 60 Watt version.
To low a power will cause the AC adapter to overheat, and/or the laptop.
If it's a replacement it should state;
Output: 19VDC @4.74A ~ 90W
(Input: 100 ~ 240VAC 50~60Hz)
2) Laptop is not on a hard flat surface when being used. This causes blockage of the laptop's cooling system, and the laptop to overheat.
Heat = Wasted Energy
The AC adapter strains to keep up with the needed call for power, and overheats.
3) There is a part loose inside the laptop. Causing a short circuit.
May be a foreign object, and not part of the laptop at all.
This would mean wearing an ESD wrist strap, with it's alligator clip attached to a good Ground source; and disassembling the laptop to find out.
(Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
An ESD wrist strap relieves your body of Static, and keeps your laptop safe; when repairing.
Average cost is $3 to $6)
