Where did you purchase the adapters from? You say they are correct because they match the specification on the bottom, but that does not mean they are of high enough quality to handle the contact power pull that a laptop gives.
If you bought these directly for PackardBell then contact them to get a refund and report your issues. If they are aftermarket adapters then the quality of the adaptor is not high enough for your laptop. Since your stepdad has an adaptor that works well with it, then find out what brand it is and try to purchase the same model as he has.

My samsung laptop charger gets hot and starts to melt when pluged in and powered up and does the same if i take the battery out please helptried a new battery and new charger could it be the jack on the...


I'm unclear however
Does the new charger get too hot? If so the problem is not the charger or the socket.
Does the laptop work with the new charger plugged in but no battery? If so the socket on the laptop is probably ok
Is the actual charger melting or is it just the plug that goes in the laptop that's getting hot, if it is the plug on both chargers then the socket will need repairing or resoldering, they are a weak point, the soldered pins go high resistance and can generate a lot of heat around the plug and socket. Its usually obvious if the socket is faulty because as you move the plug it makes contact intermittently.
DONT USE THE CHARGER THAT'S MELTING and if both are getting hot have the socket repaired.
If only the one charger getting hot the short is probably in the plug on that charger but read on
On a different note the genuine chargers should be over current protected and overheat protected, they should never melt.

I have no idea unless it was possibly plugged into a 220 outlet by mistake, I suggest you call RYOBI direct and ask their service department what might be the cause.

My blackberry 2 storm wont turn on


These type of problems are hard to diagnose. But first start with power. If using the home charger, try the car charger. If both do not work, check the battery to see if it's seated correctly. Are you using an OEM "original equipment manufacturer" charger. If you use a charger bought from a 7-11 then you may have burnt out part of your phone. Use a friends battery that has a phone like yours. If that works and it's out of warranty, buy a charger and charge batteries on a chrger, then insert them into phone each time. Got insurance on phone?

The problem maybe with the electrical circuit. Find an electrician to check it.

Laptop charger melting


The cause was high resistance in the charger, probably from a poor solder joint. It is likely your laptop was not damaged. You can use another charger.
