Hello benno565, just the one's inside. This should give you a better connection (tighter), so the AC adapter is not too loose.
Think of things is this manner. You have a cable power cord that you plug into a wall outlet. You don't want to leave it plugged into the wall so you unplug it when your finished. Over time the power cord no longer fits tightly in the wall socket. So if you bend the power cable's prongs just a little bit (away from each other) the power cord has a tighter fit when plugged into the wall socket.

Hi. Our Advent Roma 2000 laptop seems to have a problem charging. Thought at first it was the charger so bought a new one, but still the same. The charging light flickers on and off as though there is a...

If you wiggle the connection to the laptop and it feels a bit loose, then the power connection on the laptop itself probably needs re-soldering. This is a common problem with laptops. Unfortunately unless you can do it yourself or know someone you can, then it will cost quite a bit to get fixed outside of warranty.

When i plug the charger in the first time it is working but when the charger is unplug the laptop is not working.

Hi Tim, As per my understanding you are experiencing issues with the laptop not working without a charger being plugged in.In this regards what I would suggest you do is see if the battery charges with the charger plugged in and in case the battery does get charged see if you are able to power on the laptop with just the battery connected and no charger plugged in.If you are able to get the laptop to turn on only with the charger connected and unable to power on with just the battery then it would be an issue with the battery not getting charge.So before you replace the battery please unplug all external devices from the laptop including the charger and the battery and without the charger or battery connected to the laptop please press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds after which please insert the battery into the laptop and see if you are able to turn on the laptop.This step is performed so that we could drain out unwanted static electric charges from the laptop.In case this step does not work please do consider replacing the battery since it would be an issue with the battery not getting charged. Best wishes for your effort.

Can't charge battery

Remove the battery and try if the PC turn on connecting to direct currrent.
If it turn on (whitout battery), the issue should be a connector problem or a damaged internal recargher.

Can´t start our computer

Your English is better than some Americans'. I would take out the battery and let the computer sit unplugged for ten minutes or so. Plug in the battery and plug in the power. A battery charging indicator should light letting you know the battery is charging and or the computer has power. Maybe it's just a connection. power connection. If this helps and the battery shows it is charging wait a half hour and turn on the computer. Hopefully this will work. If it doesn't work, post another message and I'll get it.

Turn on problem

Some times, the charging cable from the laptop will not charge a fully depleted battery. If you have not already done so, try charging it using the wall charger that came with the phone.

Hope this works!

Laptop problems

Hi benno565, it's not shorting it's too loose from plugging & unplugging, hence your notebook is not getting a steady charge. You can bend the two prongs (every so slightly apart from each other), (carefully), this will give you a better connection or you can just replace the AC adapter. Your battery seems unable to hold a charge, that defenitly needs replaced.
