The laptop must be turn on when you connect the adapter. If you feel that something is smelling again, is sign that the power supply inside of the computer is faulty, go to the repair shop for fix it.
However you can RUN the software diagnostic comign with the computer of download from the website manufacture supplier
God bless you

SOURCE: Notebook smells like burning plastic.

The 700 Presarios were notorious for Trace shorts at the Jack and F1.. There is a work around but these were not a safe unit as they can arc and smolder burning a hole in the systemboard. We reapired a ton of them back in the day.

SOURCE: 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

If you can determine that it is not the battery just going bad, then most likely it is a problem with the motherboard. I actually have this same problem, and have not been able to find a quick fix.

HP has a battery tester tool. If you are able to use this, then you are one step ahead of where my HP laptop is. I tried running this and it insisted that I did not have a battery installed, or that it was dead. If you have this same problem, then it looks like it might be time for a new motherboard.

In anycase, it might also be worth the time to try draining the battery completely and attempting to charge it back up. According to a few other sources, the laptop can sometimes get confused and think that a full battery is calibrated to be a low battery.

First thing to check is that the battery is inserted properly. Take the battery out, make sure there's nothing on the contacts, and then put it back in. The problem could also be that the charging jack on your laptop is loose. If you hold the charging cable plug in the laptop with a little (not a lot) force, or push it a little to the front or back, does it stay charging? If it does then the jack is loose. Your temporary fix is to hold it the way you did while testing to see if it was the problem. Be aware, this fix is strictly temporary, eventually the jack will get loose enough and not make contact at all. Consider calling Compaq customer service and checking to see if it's covered by warranty.

Try this:
1. Remove battery
2. Plug the charger or the USB Cable if you have it.
3. Place battery back in.
4. Let it charge (if it charges) all the way til you see green light.
5. Turn it on.

I hope that works.

This happened to me too, you have to take your phone back to who you bought it from so they can repair it. Its the chip inside the phone that is bad. Not the charger.

HP Pavilion dv7 Problem.


your laptop is hard wired to shut down when the input is to high into this port. You more than like have a damaged AC/DC converter box in the line (the little box on in the middle of the power cord). This handy little thing converts your powerful and destructive AC current to a DC range that is compatible with the delicate circuits of your system. I would recommend refraining from plugging this system in until the cable has been replaced as you may soon encounter catastrophic failure of key components. HERE is a link to heck out a few online purchase options.
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!!!! :D

My toshiba satellite p200 keeps turning off randomly.


Hi,

Often this indicates that the battery is nearing its end of life. Even when plug and using the AC adapter/charger, this would occur if the electrical consumption is always at its peak. Noticeable is especially when the built-in WiFi card is in use.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

My PC won't run with ac /dc power!


Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked. For more aditional info please post back. PS. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Romania, it is pretty hard for me to explain tehnical stuff in english.
