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 lg 50 pn45 made a loud pop sound last night and shut off when I tried to turn it back on makes a crackling sound in the back where the power cord plugs only stays second and shuts it self back off


Fault to the main power supply regulator section. Either it will be on a separate board, or on the part of its main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.

It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

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.

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.

Unit keeps losing power. Cord has power light and


I had the same problem. It was the pin inside the **** clamp that was broken. As I wiggled the plug in the unit the pin would dislodge. eventually the pin got lodged in the 12v power cord.

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.

Sony Vaio Loses Power, with both adapter AND Battery..


Sounds like your power outage might have damaged either your charger or your computer (or both). What type of electrical thingy did you use and where did you use it? Did it have a red clip and a black clip? or does it just make noise when you get close to the wires?

If it has a red clip/black clip then it is probably a multimeter. You'll need to look at the symbols on the power adaptor and look for the voltage output. If it says 19.5v. then you have to set your multimeter to that voltage range and then touch the red pin or clip to the middle of the plug and touch the black to the outside of the plug (both at the same time) and look at the readout. It should show either positive or negative 19.5v. or really really close 19.6 maybe. if it doesn't then the charger is dead. If it does then the computer has sustained damage. It can be repaired but it may be expensive.

If I were you I would call the power company and ask them what they plan on doing about the fact that their system fried your computer.
