Question about Computers & Internet
My computer charger broke and I just bought a universal charger at Best Buy today (Rocketfish AC Power Adapter). I tried every tip, and the only one that (M5) simply keeps the computer on, but refuses to charge the battery at all. I jury-rigged the old charger in hopes that putting a little bit of charge in the battery would help jumpstart the new charger. I let it charge to about 40%. No joy. Is this charger just not compatible with my notebook or can I make it work somehow?
Compare voltage and current (amps) from the original to the new. If the new one is different (voltage is lower, or current substantially lower), then it might not be an adequate replacement. If these are near identical, and you have the correct sized tip, there shouldn't be a problem with the new unit. Obviously, you could get an exact replacement supply $$. Also check online for replacements.
