The plain and simple of it is that the store needs to find your adapter, or replace it. Once the system is in their hands, they are responsible for returning it to you in original, if not better, condition. Be adamant, ask to speak with a manager. Don't be mean, but unmoving, and they should come around.

I have an Eee pc laptop. The ac power adapter thing was replaced and the guy at the computer store didn't put it back together cause he was pissed we talked him down on the price to put in the new ac...


The motherboard has major issues, or it was put back together incorrectly, I would go after the computer store and demand proper service since you paid for it.

What wifi card for 12xl500 (compaq)?


It depends.

If your computer runs Windows XP or Windows Vista or Windows 7, every known brand-new wireless adapter will work.

If your computer has a PCMCIA slot (about the size/thickness of a credit-card), then you can buy a "PCMCIA wireless adapter".

If your computer has a USB slot (most do!) then you can buy a "USB wireless adapter".

There are three different data-transfer speeds for wireless communications:
* wireless B -- up to 11 megabits/second
* wireless G -- up to 54 megabits/second
* wireless N -- much faster.

Note that "high-speed" service from your local cable-modem ISP can receive at up to 10.0 megabits (or even faster) per second, while "lite-speed" service receives data at around 1.0 megabits per second.

So, when downloading, it's your cable-modem (or DSL-modem) that will be the "bottle-neck", not the "B" or "G" or "N" capability of your wireless adapter.

You probably can find "used" wireless-B or wireless-G adapters, in your local area:
* online, via 'www.usedEverwhere.com'
* local computer-stores
* online via eBay

for $10 to $20 dollars.

Pick a "brand-name", and you can download the device-drivers for it from the manufacturer's web-site ('www.linksys.com', 'www.dlink.com')
if Windows does not automatically recognize it.

Seems like power source in back of 1150 inspiron is loose


appears to be a loose connection between the AC adapter and the computer. Inspect the port on the computer where the AC is being connected for any damaged. If available, try using another known-good AC with your computer to isolate if the problem is specific to the AC adapter. If the same thing happens with another AC, the motherboard needs to be replaced. If the warranty of your computer is still active, contact dell and request a replacement for the motherboard

Power supply doesn't seem to supply power to Gateway labtop


Well its likely that you could have damaged the power cord. If one of the internal wires got yanked when your foot caught the cord it could have lost it's connection. Try going to an electronics store and asking if they have any universal adapters, look on the back and see if your laptop model is supported. Try it and see if it works, if not return the cord and the problem will be with the female plug in the back of the laptop. Like you said its probably not the laptop

Hope this helps, please comment back if you have any further questions or information about the problem. Feel free to leave positive feedback if this helps, thanks for stopping by at Fixya!

Latitude d520 will not recognize power adapter


I have heard about this problem with a number of Dell laptops, including the Inspiron models. The problem is that the connector for the power port may have been loosened after many years of use. This may require service from Dell on the motherboard.

This sounds like a voltage regulator problem. You should have it serviced. If it is under warrenty contact dell, and if not any major computer shop should be able to assist you. Sometimes they can get the replacement parts and service this in store, but more often they will ship it out to have it serviced if it is at all possible. This is not a problem you can solve yourself without a significant amount of know how in laptop repairs. Please rate this solution below, as to how nobody has yet to do so for any of my solutions. Good Luck

Power trouble


Try another known good AC adapter. You could try a universal AC adapter (targus/Igo or kensington). Call around to see what computer stores in your area will let you try one before you buy it.

If that doesnt solve it then you will have to take it somewhere to be disassembled and repaired.
