just bought one of these laptops secondhand but it comes without a charger, can anyone advise me as to exactly what charger i need as from searching the web i cant pin down the exact charger i need? the orginal broken charger that the seller is not posting to me due to the extra postage weight has these details he informs me
Info off broken charger is
Delta Electronics Inc Model ADP-120MB Input 100-240V ~1.8A Output 19.0V ~ 6.32A
with searching on these details i get differing results from 2pin to 4pin to plug in 2.5, so i dont want to purchase one yet as i will most certainly get the wrong one and my cheap laptop will end up being quite expensive.

Without the Make, Model of computer It's difficult to help. But a word of advise, Beware of inexpensive aftermarket Batteries and cord/chargers. They sometimes , at best, do not work properly, a worst, can be a fire hazzard. It's cheap for a reason. Be sure to buy the EXACT power specs, Voltage, Amperage. Look to the Laptop Manufacturer for exact replacement. They may be pricey, but , in the long run a better bet.
First of all, it could definitely be something with the battery. Batteries have a finite life-time, and yours might had reached it's end...
Anyway, chargers for laptops are quite "unique" for each brand, sometime even for each model. There's a chance that by your "trial and error" you might even caused more damage... :/ You should CAREFULLY take a look on what your laptop consumes, in terms of VOLTAGE and CURRENT. Connecting incompatible charger (even if it's plug fits perfectly) might (and often will) damage your battery and/or the motherboard.
With that said, try replace the battery (if you can try it without buying a new one - better), then use your ORIGINAL charger. Of that doesn't work - use a replacement branded charger. If that doesn't work either - you might need to check it the laptop still works.
if you just plugged in a new charger you should be able to power it on even if your battery is dead. laptops can be powered on even without its batteries as long as the chargers are connected to the laptop.
i think you have to bring your laptop for servicing.
Check to make sure that the adapter (where it plugs into the back of your computer) is not loose. I know that I just had to replace mine due to the saudering coming loose. If when you plut it in and you can move it around and there is play to it, then you need to have the "charging port" replaced with a new one. Usally this means taking it into a computer service to have them take apart the lap top and fit a new one.
is the new on/off switch new or second hand if its new get it exchange cause these switchs have a spring in them with 2 channel cutouts in them once depressed when it starts to come back up it automatically goes into another channel which keeps it on faulty switch thats all it can be if secondhand again take it back cause its faulty this is the only thing it can be they are simply made so they dont mess up try doing it when its not on the washer love peter
