Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, I have had this computer for about a year now, but today the charger decided not to work. The green indicator light goes on on the charger itself, but when I plug it in, nothing happens. I have checked both batteries and the same thing happens. Same for outlets. Occasionaly(1/15 times) it will charge, but only for 2-5 minutes. Any help would be great, thanks!
Try another AC adapter - Those use a simlar charger to a lot of toshiba and compaq notebooks - something in the 18.5-19v and 3-4a range will work or a universal targus/kensington kit.
If a different adapter does't do it then you may have a power jack that has broken on the inside of the laptop. Normally about $100-$150 repair - get a recommendation from someone for a local repair shop that has had a laptop repaired (ideally for this same problem) There is a wide variation in the quality of techs that work on laptops.
