Yes you will be able to replace the power cord and transformer (the black box).

Just to be sure thought. Shutdown your laptop and plug the cable into the laptop again. The laptop should show LED's on the front of it to show that the power is plugged in and is charging the battery. This is usually symbolised by a green or orange led.

The easiest thing to change for now would be the cable but if you continue to have issues you may have a larger problem with the power input module within the laptop itself.

My hp pavilion a430n is not turning on. even though i pressed the power button the light wont even turn on. it is truly annoying and the screen says something about the power supply and green, red, blue...


I suggest to open your computer and unplug your power supply and look for the color green and black cord which plugged from your motherboard. Then find a piece of wire and short the color green and black wire to test if your power supply is working and plug to your power socket. And check your electronic parts (capacitor) near at your processor, it might your capacitor blown out.

Earlier my laptop shut down with no warning even though the charger was all connected and plugged in. now even though the charger is plugged in everytime i try to turn it back on the needs to be charged...


This could be caused by several things, but try the obvious first. I just bought a brand new power supply, and in less than a week the customer called and said it stopped working. I suggested she take the cord from the old charger and try it - it worked - the brand new cord lasted less than a week. The other thing that could cause this is a bad connection on the end of the power supply, going into the computer. It could even be a bad power supply.The last thing I can think of is a bad battery that won't hold a charge.

I left it on last night. This morning it was off


check your power cord to insure that you are getting power. make sure power cord is plug in the back.
look in back of computer. you will see a little orange switch. it says 115/220 click to 220. boot computer.
if computer boots up turn off and click back over to 115.
if it does not boot your power supply in your computer needs replacement.

I have a Gateway ml6720 and when I plugg it in to charge the light goes on and off now it will not even come on. Is it the cord or the peice in the back?


Most likely you have lost the charger "brick" itself. I have though seen an increase in the power cord that plugs into the wall socket go bad and that would be the last piece I would think of going bad but they do. The easiest way to test the cord is get another power cord that plugs into the power "brick", if the light comes on and stays on, then it was the actual power cord and not the adapter (brick) part. Less expensive "bricks" tend to run very hot and therefore do not last long. The cheaper "bricks" that are made in China, tend to last less than a year under normal load.

Freecom 500gb external hard drive not working


Try another computer, likely if it was plugged in though and was not protected with a surge protector its gone. Their are expensive services that might be able to retrieve it though, but that could cost hundreds to thousands of dollars.

Without being physically at the pc it's still going to very hard to diagnose it, try to find a family friend or someone who is well versed with computers to have a look. Or you might try a local repair shop.

Battery indicator flashes even when plugged in to electrical plug, computer recognizes plug-in. Computer will not run with power cord.


The battery indicator flashing when plugged in to electrical plug means your battery is completely dead and won't charge. You're computer should run with just the power cord. Your power cord most likely needs replacement.

If you know anyone with the same model of laptop ask if you can borrow their power cord and/or battery to test it out. It is rare for the problem to be the motherboard, though it does happen.

It may just be the power cord at fault as the computer should run without the battery, so you should replace the power cord, as it is probably the reason the battery is completely dead.

If the battery is at least a year old I would replace it since they generally don't last too much longer than a year.

Computer power won't turn on


First thing to do is try to plug the pc in another wall socket to see if it goes on, If not, the MB could have gotten fried, even though the other plugs seem to work. Hopfully you just need another surge protector as that could have gotten damaged.
