Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
I have recently purchased a new Ac adapter for my laptop. When I plugged in my laptop to charge the connection got so hot that it began to melt. This was happening with my old adapter as well, the overheating no the melting. This occurs both while the laptop is in use and while it is on standby charging. I don't recall hearing any fans to cool the system down either. Is this a problem with my laptop or the AC adapter?
It could be a fault with your laptop which is drawing more current than what the AC adapters can supply.
The adapters are under too powered for your laptop.
Check the voltage and current rating requirements of your laptop, this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the laptop.
The adapter should have the same voltage and current rating or same voltage with a higher current rating.
