Your mistake has damaged the power compartment. I think you better claim for warranty. Or find the experts who can replace the power  supply board part. it is not easy as you think.

I was given a easy pc E700 netbbok without any adapters. The battery was low, so I used a sord I had at home to work on for an hour trying to set it up for my wireless internet...anyway I havent figured...


TRY THIS...TAKE YOUR BATTERY OUT...AND USE THE POWER CORD YOU STARTED OUT WITH...SINCE YOU WHERE ABLE TO POWER YOUR COMPUTER ON... SEE IF THIS WILL START YOUR COMPUTER...YOUR BATTERY MAY HAVE BEEN THE PROBLEM IN THE FIRST PLACE.

IF THE ADAPTER YOU PURCHASED HAD A BOX(TRANSFORMER) TO PLUG IN...THEN THE BURNT SMELL WILL BE...THE ADAPTER TRANSFORMER BLEW.

MOST UNIVERSAL POWER ADAPTERS COME WITH ASSORTED SIZES FOR USB PORTS...SOUNDS LIKE THE SALEMAN/WOMAN GAVE YOU THE WRONG POWER SOURCE FOR YOUR NOTEBOOK. TAKE IT BACK...AND GET YOUR MONEY BACK!

BATTERIES ARE VERY EXPENSIVE, SO IF YOU ARE ABLE TO GET YOUR COMPUTER TO COME ON, THEN JUST LEAVE THE BATTERY OUT!

HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED...WHEN YOU GO INTO THE STORES...AND ALL THE COMPUTERS ARE TURNED ON...THIS IS BECAUSE THEY TAKE THE BATTERIES OUT, SO NOT TO RUN THE LIFE OF THE BATTERY DOWN OR OUT!

IF YOU NEED FURTHER ASSISTANCE, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME!

KIND REGARDS!

Sir i have acer 4720Z series laptop. when I plug in the power adapter it show adapter light green. when adapter pin connect the laptop then light show blink and laptop not charging.


Your laptop battery seems to be broken.
To be a 100% sure, can the computer run on only battery?
Try to have the computer plugged in to the charger for a couple of hours without starting it.

Burning smell on my laptop


Unless you have the ability to to replace the plug connector part yourself, you will have to take it in to a shop who can do that kind of fine soldering for you. If nothing else is damaged, it should be ok with replacing just that burnt out part.
