Keep getting disonnected from internet when using laptop power cord

My laptop instanteously disconnects from the internet if I plug in the laptop's power cord. If I remove the cord and run on the battery the internet connection returns...sometimes on its own...sometimes by running "repair". This happened one other time and lasted for about one day and then the problem went away on its own. In fact the first time I hadn't been able to determine what was causing the problem, i.e. power cord vs battery. This time the problem isn't going away and I have clearly found the problem. I have verified that this is happening in outlets throughout the home so it is not the outlet that is causing the problem.

Why does the end of the universal keep coming out of the cord

Sounds like you are using the laptop while charging, possibly bending the cord at the plug causing it to come loose. Or maybe you need to hold the plug itself firmly while unplugging from the laptop. Use the laptop on a table or other surface while charging to keep from having this problem.

Xbox consol has red ring only 3 lines not full ring

This could be a mjor problem.. Kindly Check this picture here for reference..

Or, you could try doing there simple troubleshooting steps:

  1. Restart the console.
  2. If this did not work, there could be a loose cord or cable. First, any cables and power cords that can be removed should be disconnected. Unplug the power cable from the wall plug. Firmly reattach all cables and cords back into the console. Now connect up the power and turn on the console.
  3. If the above step didn't work, then try turning off the console, unplugging the power and then disconnecting the hard drive. Now plug into the power and turn the console back on. If console does not show the three red lights error, turn it off and disconnect the power cord from the wall. Finally, reconnect the hard drive, plug in the power, and turn on the console.
  4. If you are using a defective surge protector, plug strip, or extension cord, your xbox may not be getting adequate power. Try plugging the power brick directly into the wall. This sort of thing happens more often than you might think. My DSL connection used to be very unreliable until I bypassed my surge protector and plugged my modem directly into the wall. I should have done this in the first place rather than making a lot of angry (and useless) phone calls to my internet service provider.
  5. If you think that your machine has overheated, then turn it off and let it cool down. Ensure that the cooling vents are not blocked in any way and keep your Xbox 360 in a ventilated and open area.

    Do not place near it any sources of heat. There are obvious sources like heaters and radiators and such. But less obvious sources include the electrical devices that are sitting on top or beneath your xbox.

    Try removing any dust buildup inside the machine.

    Cool off your console with a small fan.

    Don't forget to keep the power brick cool, so keep it off of shaggy carpeting. Better still, place it on an elevated surface. You can even hang the power brick by its cord off of a hook.

    Keep the rear of the console clear. Don't push it up against a wall and keep any debris away. This includes not allowing any cords and cables to get all bunched up in this area.

    Don't do any all day gaming marathons. Limit your gaming to just a few hours, then turn it off and let it cool down for a while. The warmer the room temperature is the shorter your playing time should be.
if all else fails, consider of having your XBOX repaired by a local tech or the nearest XBOX service center. this could be a little expensive but a quicker option..

My power cord does not stay charging while plugged in. Normally I hear the beeping as it conects and disconnects, up to 20 times a minute. Do I have a bad power cord? Is the best result just to purcharse a...

If it keeps connecting and disconnecting, it could be either the power adapter or the motherboard, but chances are it's the power adapter (and that's the cheaper solution too). You can usually get a new power adapter for $15 or $20, and that should take care of your problem.

Computer won't start

Try this; Disconnect from the AC outlet rmove the dc plug from the jack. Remove the Battery and wait for 5 mins and plug in the AC-DC adaptor without the battery. If the Laptop runs, then wait for the Windows to totally boot up and while running try to put back the battery and observe if it still charges. If it still won't boot up repeat the procedure and before connecting the power remove the memory modules first and install 1 memory at a time. Also, if you can find your way to where the CMOS Battery is, I suggest disconnect it for about 10 to 15 mins. while Battery, memory, AC source are also disconnected.

Hope this helps.
