Question about Gateway 7405GX Notebook
Whenever my laptop is plugged in (NOT EVEN FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME) the power cord adaptor (the part that attaches to the computer) the plastic that touches the metal portion inside the computer itself, melts, you smell burning plastic and the laptop stops thinking its plugged in...
can i fix this?... or can someone fix this?
or know whats causing it?
Is the power adaptor made for the country you are living in? It's possible the plug you are plugging it into has a higher current than the plug was certified for. Have you tried plugging the laptop in in another location (like, in a different building)? You may just need to replace the adaptor, how old is it?
