Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have apparenlty had two AC adapter power cords burn up in the last two weeks. My computer is running without any problems (when the power cords are working). The battery life is good. Any ideas why power cords keep burning up??? THis is getting very aggravating. The first cord came w/ the dv3 and the second one was purchased at Office Max. They were each plugged into two outlets, one at home and one at work. I'm open to suggestions.... please!

hi

find out if the fan is blowing air -- tun notebook over and see if the air is blowing out from under it, while notebook is running. I would say that the heatsink fan may have stopped working, and it shuts down the computer as a fail safe response, so that the CPU or mainboard is not damaged.

other possibility, ---- the power connection (when inserting the AC adapter cord) may be faulty .to find out : remove the battery from computer (while computer is off). Turn computer on, insert the AC adapter cord. If notebook turns on, its fine -- if not and disconnects intermittently, you have a faulty AC adapter or power cord or combination/hop this helps

Welcome to Fixya!

You can run the computer by just using the power adapter. Take out the battery and turn on the computer just using the power adapter. If the computer wont turn on then possible problem would be the power adapter itself or the socket where you connected the power adapter to your computer.
You need to send the computer to Lenovo depot repair center for repair.You may try to use other lenovo adapters just to check if the adapter is the problem.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Hp compaq nx7400 - battery died and power cord will not turn comp


Some laptops will not power up with a completely discharged or faulty battery. Remove the battery from the laptop, plug in the power cord and try to boot the system. If the system boots, your battery needs to be replaced. Replace your battery as soon as you can, it's not a good idea to run the laptop for extended periods with an open battery bay.

Battery or No


Yes it will (or should ) work without a battery, just make sure you don't unplug the connector while you are working with your computer or you will loose your work w/ no warning, laptop power cords become detached easily so be careful!

Sony Vaio ac adapter submerged


If the ac adapter was plugged into the laptop at the time may be bad news. Unplug AC adapter, take out the battery and hold power button for 10 seconds. Then connect AC adapter and hit power. If that doesn't work put battery back in without ac adapter and hit power button.

If neither test works bring to repair center for diagnosis. Best case AC adapter would need replacing. Worst case Motherboard fried.

Thanks

AC adapters


You will definitely want an AC adapter for your camera. You won't want to be tethered to an electrical cord while taking pictures, but when it comes time to edit the pictures stored on your memory card(s) or to download your photos onto a computer, you'll find the job much easier if you're running the camera via an AC adapter. Without the continuous power of an adapter, you'll burn through your batteries.
