Westinghouse Notebook power supply

I have a westinghouse notebook. I have had it for about 1 year. I keeps shutting off. Even if I have the electrical chord plugged in all the time. The longest it stays on is 15 minutes. The power light keeps flipping from grren to orange. Is my power supply dying and where would I get it serviced?

    Laptop runs fine for 12 - 15 minutes, then shuts off. I loaded Speedfan to monitor temperatures, thinking a thermal shutdown was causing the problem, but the Core and HD are running within parameters. Another possibility was an old graphics driver, but it is up to date. I took the back off and cleaned out the heat sink and fan area, but that didn't help. The only thing left seems to be the power supply, and I have no way of checking it without the help of a pro. Since it's a cheap laptop, I doubt I will invest more than about $50 in it. I'd rather find a good 2 year old IBM Thinkpad for $250. I'll let you know if I find the issue.

If it is under a year old it should be covered by warranty,so contact the seller or manufacturer,

It sounds very much like a power pack is on its way out, and they are a sealed unit ,

try it in another power point. if power point is working fine, but you still have the problem,

and its over the warranty period.

take it to your local computer store and have them test it for you ,they will also be able to order one in and sell you a new one ,if it is the problem.

good luck with that

My westinghouse 19H210S quit working 1 year 3


I also just changed the bulging capacitor and also it still does not work. Even though it was bulged when I tested it after changing it the capacitor tested normal. Not much help but clearly the 2200 capacitor is not the only problem.

Power chord problem


(1) Does the machine work with the cord plugged, if so it is the battery or the charger circuit at fault

(2) If it does not work then there is either a break in the cable where it enters the plug which plugs into the back of the laptop or the power supply has failed
