Tip

How to troubleshoot a laptop charger.


  • Step 1 Wrap your charger's exposed wiring with electrical tape before proceeding. This will help to prevent any kind of electrical hazard or further damage.
  • Step 2 Push the wire next to the charger base (the connecting tip near the laptop end) side to side to see if you can get a current to connect. This is a temporary solution, but it can help you salvage your files so that you can work with them on a different computer.
  • Step 3 Make sure that it isn't a battery problem. Many laptop owners believe their charger is the problem when their battery is charging. Laptop batteries generally begin to lose the ability to hold a charge after two to three years of heavy usage. Try removing your laptop battery. If the computer still runs, the charger is not the problem.
  • Step 4 Check to see if the issue lies in your computer. You can do this by testing out an alternate charger on the laptop--if the charger still does not work, it's an internal laptop issue. For this kind of power system problem, you will probably have to send your computer to its manufacturer rather than a local repair shop.
  • Step 5 Replace your charger. A replacement charger is usually easy to find and quite affordable. Instead of going to a local electronics retailer where universal chargers can cost $100 or more, look online for your specific model's charger. Some chargers can be purchased for as little as $5

    Toshiba satellite won't turn on


    Before you make a decision about the next step, maybe you would like to know why the laptop charger is not working. Here are some commonly found reasons for this problem.

    You have been using the wrong laptop charger for your machine, or someone else has been using your laptop charger for another machine. This may seem like a harmless act, but it affects the battery on your laptop, and charger you are using as well.

    Your laptop battery has become weak and worn out from excessive use. Due to this the battery is not charging at all (or charging very slowly) when you plug in the charger. In this case there is absolutely nothing wrong with the charger itself.

    The wire of the laptop charger has got a distinct curve at one point, and this is restricting it from transmitting power. You need to look out for such bends in the wire, as this will ruin the efficiency of the charger in no time.

    This may sound elemental and stupid to some, but it does happen to many people. Maybe you are simply using the wrong laptop charger by mistake, or maybe you have failed to switch on the power switch. Check both these things to be sure.


    Any of these potential causes could be the reason behind your laptop charger not working. As a result of these, either the mains power lead of your charger may be damaged, or the power supply unit may be damaged, or maybe the lead itself is damaged or broken somewhere, or some circuitry inside the laptop is damaged, and not responding to the charger. It's hard to accurately tell which of these problems could be the real cause of your laptop battery not charging, without physically examining the machine.

    Solutions and Answers

    Now if you are well versed in computer hardware you can attempt to fix this yourself. Most people cannot do this, and it is advisable for them to visit a computer repair shop instead. They will examine the laptop charger not working problem, and suggest some suitable remedies for it. Depending on your budget, you can choose an option that suits you and simultaneously solves your problem. Here are some recommended solutions.

    Buy a brand new charger which will definitely solve your problem of charging the laptop for a long time.

    If you're hesitant to pay that amount, you can try and purchase a second hand laptop charger from eBay.

    Get your's repaired and pay the repair shop the fees that they charge.

    If your warranty is still valid, you can simply get the laptop charger replaced.

    Hello,

    There are three possible parts of the computer which cause the problem.

    1. ac adapter or charger
    2. battery
    3. motherboard

    The charger is working fine which leaves the battery and the motherboard to be the possible reasons for that certain problem. What you need to do is to check which one is really the part that's causing the problem.

    Here's what you need to do:

    1. Remove the battery from the laptop.
    2. Turn the computer by using the charger alone. If it turns on then, the battery needs to be replaced. If it doesn't then it's a motherboard problem which is a very complicated situation. You need to see a computer technician for a motherboard problem.
