Question about Lenovo ThinkPad R61i 14 inch widescreen with integrated graphics PC Desktop
My AC adapter stopped working. The charge light will flash on for less than a second then shut off. I recently downloaded SmitFraud, and rebooted in Safe Mode, cleaned out my system, and it was after this that it stopped working. Any thoughts or should I just buy a new cable?
SmitFraud is not capable of doing actual hardware harm. It can be a pain to get rid of it software wise, but it can't do any harm to the physical machine. I think you've just had bad timing with this problem.
If the charger isn't charging, there's one of two problems. Either the charger itself is faulty, and it's not thinking the battery is charged when it isn't, or the battery is faulty. I would personally take your laptop into a shop that sells the same kind, explain the problem and ask if you can plug one of their adapters into your laptop. If the light comes on and immediately goes out, it's the battery. If it comes on and stays on, it's your charger. Either way you can find out which it is before you have to spend money on a replacement. Do be sure to do it with the shops permission, though - they won't like it if you help yourself, and you might find yourself swiftly banned from the premises.
