Help finding an ac power supply

I was given a desknote i-buddie xp notebook a while back and its power supply has burnt out! I'm trying to find a new suitable replacement but having no luck! The ac adapter that was supplied was a liteon a929 120w 4.74a that has 3 pin holes to fit in the laptop. I've trailed ebay, ebuyer and emailed liteon themselves but no luck anybody know where i can get one from???
I'm happy to accept all help my email is and you can use that to get hold of me on msn as well.
Thanks in advance

I was given a Dell Latitude E6420 with a bios password and i am wonderin if the laptop guru here could decode it for me, service tag 9WVC4R1-1D3B, thanks homies

Hi Allan.

We won't be able to do that-- you're looking at probably replacing the BIOS in the laptop to clear this out. Check for jumpers too.

Hope this helps!

Disconnect the Ac adapter. Remove the battery from the laptop. Press and hold down the power button for 10 seconds. connect only the Ac adapter and try to power on the system. If the system powers on shutdown and put the battery back in.

Cannot find where you put the battery on the ECSI-Buddie A900

It seems that the battery is optional and external.

This is an excerpt of manual (you can get it here):

The system provides you an optional battery with two connectors (3 & 4-pin) on one side to the DeskNote and the other side to the AC adapter.
  1. Use the 3-pin connector cable to connect between the DeskNote and battery.
  2. Plug the AC adapter's connector into the 4-pin connector of the battery.
  3. Connect the power cord to the AC adapter and then to a wall outlet. "

Toshiba m115 will not power on

Hi kipdidy23
You have eliminated all that you could with the fualt finding. You will unfoertunetly have to take the notebook in to a repair centre. The charging circuit on the motherboard is blown. Please feel free to search he Repair Service Directory on this site for a repair centre close to you.

Battery will not charge


It's your ac adapter that is causing this issue. The ac adapter doesn't supply enough power or doesn't supply any power at all to the battery. Try to borrow another ac adapter from any inspiron system and if that works, then you need to replace the ac adapter, else, it's the motherboard.

Hope you find it helpful.

Dekk Inspiron 6000 power

Start by checking the power supply with an ohm meter to see if it has the proper output. If the machine is starving for power it will jump back and forth from battery to AC. You can find the output ratings on the side of the supply. If the supply checks good, then I'm afraid the problem is with the power managment chip on the motherboard. The PM chip controls the power input and the switching from battery to AC, it also controls the charging system.
