As long as the output voltage from the power supply is the same as what your laptop needs your good to go, but, also check the output "amps" you need the amps rating to be the same or more on the power supply. The laptop will only draw the amps it needs so if the power supply amps rating is higher no problem, but if the power supply amps rating is lower it could cause the power supply to over heat and maybe die on you.
If you are unsure please check with someone familiar with electrical ratings.

The problem may be in the charger now. It could have shorted out. Do you see any lights on the unit when it is plugged in? James

I would like to bring to your notice one of the issue that came across with a Vista based PC of a EU who reported in his mail that in "Device" manager their are 6 to 4 adaptor is listing by name itself and for this he is unable to install any drivers as it is showing that the drivers are not installed for it. Even though EU is able to browse the internet.

Normally the above issue is related to TCP/IP transmission protocol that uses by Vista. As Vista by default support IPv6 TCP/IP protocol for data transmission over the network. 6to4 adapter is a component used for transmitting IPv6 packets trough IPv4 network correctly. If the drivers for this component is not properly installed or corrupted there will be a code 31 or code 10 error appearing beside this component. You may update the driver for your network adapter or chipset, and then try to uninstall and reinstall the this component as mentioned below. I am enclosing a snapshot of the issue along with the mail so that you can also have a clear idea of the issue.

=======Uninstalling 6to4 Adaptor==========

2. From the device manager window select "Action".
3. Select "Add Legacy Hardware".
4. Click on Next.
5. Select "Install the hardware that I manually select from a list".
6. Select Network adapters from the window.
7. Select "Microsoft" from left window.
8. From right window select "Microsoft 6to4 Adapter"
9. Click on next and finish the wizard.


After performing the above steps issue shoule get resolve. If the issue persist then, I request you to disable this device in device manager. By disabling this it will not effect your internet browsing or your wireless conectivity, as Microsoft also confirm this in their database. In order to disable this device perform the below said steps.

Hi; I Have a Dell XPS 1530 which is dull if I do not have it plugged in. I have three Targus power cords and cannot use any of them. The one that has the S35 tip fits, but only engaged...


I am showing the AC adpater specifications as:
Input Voltage Range: AC 100V - 240V
Output Voltage: DC 19.5V
Output Current: 4.62A
Power: 90 Watt
Does your adapter meet those specifications?
Although I am a proponent of Targus products, possibly purchasing an OEM adapter may solve the problem. We have successfully purchased ones available from reputible vendors on eBay at a discount.
Have you checked to always show the battery status in the system tray so that you can verify when the AC adapter is actually charging versus an intermittent connection or malfunctioning power socket?

Lenovo 3000 n100 won't power up


Hello,

I had posted the Aug 19, 2008 comment about having this problem twice. I tried a new universal AC adapter, and it worked! (new adapter is a Targus APA63US) Now battery is charging and laptop also runs on AC alone. So perhaps it's an adapter problem instead of a battery problem. Get one at a store with a good return policy, so if it doesn't work for you, just return it. And if it does work, then happier days. I've had mine about 2 weeks. So far so good, though with what I've learned about Lenovo since having this problem, it wouldn't surprise me if something else goes wrong, or if the damn thing just blew up, ha ha. Also, this adapter set me back about $100 that I really should not have needed to spend! arrgggh ...

Cheers and Best of Luck and hope this helps other frustrated Lenovo owners!
