I would be amazed if you could locate such a part. These are not sold, as it is expected that if a power adapter is damaged, it should be replaced. Sorry for the bad news, but you will need to buy a new adapter. If it is any consolation, it would not have to be the "brand name" version, but could be a compatible "generic" if you want to save some money.

Even if it were possible to replace one piece of an adapter, it would not be a good idea, given the amount of damage (catastrophic range) that would likely be done to your PC. Please post back if you need more help. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Usb receiver broke on my kensington pilotboard desktop set, any ideas


You can contact Kensington's customer service and see whether they will ship you a replacement. As an alternative, you could buy another Kensington Wireless Pilot Board mouse and use its receiver. As a third alternative, you could buy another Kensington wireless mouse or keyboard and see whether the receiver for that will pick up the Pilot Board keyboard. Finally, you could buy another wireless mouse or keyboard (not Bluetooth) and see whether its receiver will pick up the Pilot Board.

Aspire 5251-1513 ac adapter broke


Don't do that if you are not good for repairing laptop. That will damage your laptop and be dangerous.

Either repair your laptop adapter or buy a new adapter. If you can't let your laptop charger repaired by yourself, you had better replace a new charger.If you are on a budget on a new charger, consider buying a third party charger:Intocircuit Acer Aspire 5251 AC Adapter 65Watt 19V 3.42A

Nc6400 no power on


What kind of adapter did you buy? Did it come with 5 - 10 different tips that you try on the end of the power cord until you find one that will fit into your laptop? If so, no wonder you're having problems, those things will burn your board out. AC Adapters have different power requirements (watts) If you have one that has changeable tips, but the watts are constant, you're asking for trouble. Stay away from those one size fits all Ac Adapter Power Cords

I have an Asus Eee and would like to use my Kensington Universal car/air adapter to power it. As far as the voltage is concerned, there is no problem as the laptop runs on 19V which there is a fitting...


Thank you for using FixYa

The physical connection is one thing. If it looks the same it may work, however you might want to know the amps as well, and if the tip is positive or negative. As an alternative the USB adapter may be easier fix and even WalMart has one that fits in the cigarette lighter. My Asus is 19v. 2.1amp, with a tip +.


I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

The power adapter that plugs into the laptop HP DV4000 is broken, and I can't use the charger. where can I find a new one to replace the broken one, or will I have to buy a whold new charger? thanks


Do you mean only the power cable that linked the power brick with laptop was broken? Of course if you are 100% sure that's the only part that fail, you may only buy a cable. Check this link blow:

But if you are not that sure, i'll suggest you buying a whole new charger:

Replacement tips for Kensington 120W AC/DC adapter model 33197


I have the same model adapter for my dell, I believe there is a number on the tip that you need, have you tried ebay for the part they are called 'smart tips'. I think it's a different adapter direct from kensington now, but you can buy them from 3rd parties.

I need a power tip for the kensington power adapter for my new dell xps M1730.. I contacted Kensington and they are not much help...


In the same boat. I've contacted Dell and gave him a good talking too. They sell the Kensington, advertised as compatible with XPS when it's not. It's false advertising and should refund you.
