No Power Hi, I have a Sotec 3120 and recently it just won't power up. At first I thought it was the adapter, but I purchased a new one and it still won't power up or charge the battery. Could you please let me know why this is. Thanks.

First things first:
1) You maybe fried the onboard for Sotec 3120, using anothe Power Adapter that may have diffrent AMP. but same DC.
2) you can RMS your product, for a new one, if warranty apply **
3) Consult the manual for other way to power up your device at this point.

Power supply for a gateway GT5634H

Hi Debbie ,

Yes that power connector should be just fine the extra 4pins are an addition 12v rail to reduce the amperage on one line , you can just connect it offset to one side, not centred.
allthough there will be more current than the newer 24pin PSU, id reccomend buying an additional 20 to 24pin adaptor from

hope this helps .

My PC power supply crashed, burnt resistors, Powerman IW-P250A3-1 20 pin plug to motherboard, bought new power source, but the old power source had a white cable to the 20 pin plug which was -5vdc 0.3amp....

For your system to boot up properly, you need an identical power supply for your system. Most likely the reason why your system won't boot up right now is because you purchased a different power supply and it is lacking something(which is the other pin).

My battery icon shows "plugged

When this issue occurs it is generally due to a bad power adapter. Power adapters tend to get hot when plugged in and in use. The actual temp inside the adapter would naturally be even hotter than the outside.

Over time wires inside any component that creates massive heat will simply breakdown. Sometimes they can get hot enough to catch fire.

My suggestion would be to purchase a new power adapter and see if that fixes the problem. You may want to find someone with the same laptop and "borrow" their power adapter to see if that fixes your problems. That way you won't spend any money until your sure.

THANKS! Hope that helps.

My inspiron one 2305 won't power on. The light on the adapter cuts off soon as i plug it in. It work fine the last time i shut it down.

Welcome to Fixya
This sound like a hardware problem not much to do to try and fix this issue but you can try this.
Remove the ac adapter and battery. Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. By doing this we are draining the flea power of the laptop. Residue power sometimes causes a no power issue. If this does not fix the problem then you would have to get the laptop serviced.

Hope this helps

My Asus eee pc 901a: i get no charge lights i get no power light even when the charger is pluged in. ive gone as far as unpluging bios battery and replaceing. any suggestions

Hi. This could be a power adapter problem. Try this troubleshooting first, if nothing happens then i suggest you purchase a new adapter. Take out the battery and unplugged the power adapter to the wall socket. Press and hold the power button for 30 secs. Put everything back in then turn ON the computer.

The power in the battery is 0, not recharging, it is 2 month old

first you have to purchase new battery pack. while doing that you can use your laptop without battery pack. just plug the power adapter into the socket and to your laptop.
And, if the power adapter is plugged in, then still now power, you have to purchase also a power adapter.

Hi; I Have a Dell XPS 1530 which is dull if I do not have it plugged in. I have three Targus power cords and cannot use any of them. The one that has the S35 tip fits, but only engaged...

I am showing the AC adpater specifications as:
Input Voltage Range: AC 100V - 240V
Output Voltage: DC 19.5V
Output Current: 4.62A
Power: 90 Watt
Does your adapter meet those specifications?
Although I am a proponent of Targus products, possibly purchasing an OEM adapter may solve the problem. We have successfully purchased ones available from reputible vendors on eBay at a discount.
Have you checked to always show the battery status in the system tray so that you can verify when the AC adapter is actually charging versus an intermittent connection or malfunctioning power socket?
