How to fix Power Adapter
Does your adaptor geting warmer when plugged to power outlet for some time (minutes)?
If not, than there are two possible solutions:
First (the easiest) thing is to check if both wires are not cut or short (one that you connect to power outlet, and the other one you connect to your laptop). You'll need some multimer to do this.
Most possible is that you'll need to open the power adaptor to do these checks.
Second thing is to locate and check the Fuse. Most of the adaptors have a Fuse inside.
If the fuse is OK, the wires are also OK, and the adaptor is getting warmer (or not), than you should buy a new power adaptor.
My experiance sais, not to belive much to repaired laptop adaptors (you don;t say what laptop you have).
Also, do not ask for substitute (cheap) adaptor!
Find an original one!
Most important is the following:
Please note that you should't try to do these checks, if you don't feel you are enough qualified. You should ask some friend of your's or some service. It should't cost you much !
Also, if you try to do this by yourself, be EXTREMELY carefull when adaptor is open. DO NOT PLUG it to power outled !!!
You might be killed !!!
