You could stick it into a USB PC-Card adapter instead.  

Otherwise, it sounds like the connector's shot and you'd have to find a replacement and desolder the old one to put the new one in.  If you want to just fake a fix you can use a needlenose pliers or narrow spatula forceps to bend the USB shield to grab better, or stick some dense foam where it can do good holding your USB WiFi adapter so its connection is solid (e.g. superglue a sleeve of it to the back of an old laptop.)

How do i get pictures off my sony memory stick pro duo with adapter on to my hp laptop


You will need to purchase an adapter that will fit the SD card slot or USB connector. When connected, use the computer to open the files from your memory card and save them on your computer.

These adapters are available from big box stores and online from eBay and Amazon.

Replacing the OEM 18.5 V 3.5 A ac adapter with an 19V 4.74 A adapter for my c551nr compaq, should not give me problems, will it? It should be within spec, hopefully.


Specification of Compaq Presario C551NR AC Adapter:
Power: 65W
Output: DC18.5V 3.5A
DC Connecter (Barrel) :
Internal Diameter: 1.7mm
External Diameter: 4.8mm

But it's OK to use a 90w 19V 4.74A adapter on your laptop only if the connector tip fits your laptop.

Thefollowing three conditions should be met for you to use an ac adpater safely. 1)Output Voltage is within +/- 5% of your old charger's output.
For example, ifyour old charger provides 19.5V, then you can use a charger that provides 20.5Vor 18.5V.
2) Output Current is the same or higher than that of your old charger.
For example, ifyour original adapter provides 3.42 Amps, then you can use a charger thatprovides 3.42 Amps, 3.9 Amps or higher.
3) Connector tip must fit securely into your laptop.

I can't find the series # of my note book---- where can i get a replacement charger?


Any charger which fits the following conditions will be a good fit to your laptop:
1. Charger has a jack which fits in the laptop's power socket.
2. Charger can provide enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the charger. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery.

Alternatively, you can look for a universal laptop charger which is suitable for your laptop's model.

Can this HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter fit for Compaq Presario V3000 laptop? I doult that HP Pavilion DV9000 laptop adapter on website:http://www.laptopbatteryshop.ca/hp-pavilion-dv9000-ac-adapter.htm...


Have a look at the label on the bottom of the V3000 laptop and check the voltage and amps power rating of the laptop.
If the DV9000 adapter has the same voltage and current rating (amps) or higher amp rating then it is suitable for the V3000 laptop, provided the power plug fits the V3000 power socket.

Dell Inspiron E1505 shorting out adapter


I would replace the battery if you had for some time. Over time charging a battery will slowly not take a charge. If you tried two adapters, about the only thing is left is the battery.

well, the connector that comes from the 2nd speaker goes into the speaker port in the back of the first speaker.

The wierd cord possibly fits into the 12v dc slot in the back.. and the other end would go to a power adapter..

Seems you are missing a power adapter,, like you said earlyer.

Basically you would need a standard power adapter which fits into the speaker.

You could get some universal power adapter for it like
http://cgi.ebay.com/UNIVERSAL-DIGITAL-AC-ADAPTER-ADJUSTABLE-VOLTAGE-NEW_W0QQitemZ150275118131QQcmdZViewItem?_trksid=p3286.m20.l1116

Or

something to this direction
http://cgi.ebay.com/UNIVERSAL-AC-TO-DC-POWER-SUPPLY-ADAPTOR-ADAPTER-CHARGER_W0QQitemZ230275174536QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item230275174536&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1318


If you want to make sure you get the right kind of power apdater
Try contacting jbl directly
http://www.jbl.com/home/product_support/JBL_contactus.aspx?ProdId=PLATINUM%20SERIES&ProdName=COMPAQ:%20Platinum%20Series


I was looking around ebay, found this
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-JBL-Platinum-Series-PC-Speakers_W0QQitemZ260266345340QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item260266345340&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1318

Theres the power adapter in the middle, I think the odd cord goes to the back of the first speaker and the other end would go to a power adapter.. try contacting jbl they should be able to get you what you need.

Seems you have everything else you need except for the power adapter.
