Charging laptop in car

I am in the car with no instructions (left them at home). How do I use the inverter to charge my laptop? It is plugged into the cig lighter and the light on top is yellow. It does not power my laptop. Does the batter have to charge?

Most inverters create a modified sine wave output, which is similar to, but not the same as the AC you get out of the wall. The power supply for many laptops (and most transformers in general) will not run with a modified sine wave input. There are devices available that skip the inverter and the power supply. They go directly from 12VDC to what your laptop needs.

Hello jorel, most likely its a failure of the system board particularly the charging section, a broken pin or a loose terminal. work will be internal, suggest you do away with the battery. its better to operate it at home, or bring the charger with you. Maybe its time to get a new one.
