Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

Computer recharger Hi, I have a gateway laptop T-6321 . I want to bring it in Europe.(this is where I will use it) . The problem is with the plugin and the different voltage that we use back home. I have a head that I could attach to the plugin but is this going to affect the laptop because of the lower voltage that we have there ? Should I better buy another recharger ? or a head transformer plugin attached on it ? What would be the best solution ?

Hi,

To my knowledge most current laptop AC adapter are designated/designed to be autovolt. This refers to the capability of the adapter to accept (without any problem) any voltage anywhere and still process it to a useful output that the laptop can use. This could be verified by looking over the sticker/nameplate of the adapter. If it says 1--~240VAC, then it is auto volt. The next area of concern would be the way the AC plugs are designed. US standards differs from European and for the AC adapter/charger to fit the European wall outlets, some sort of mechanical adapter is required. Most US AC plugs are parallel polarized flat prongs whereas Europeans would be small circular prongs.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I got a new battery it worked when i got it now it wont charge ac adapter works though after i made sure the battery worked i put the computer away for a present for my daughter i have my own laptop so the...


Hi,
Welcome to FixYa!
Im very sorry to hear that, please follow these simple steps for you to be able to isolate the exact problem.


1. Removed the battery.
2. Connect the laptop directly to the power outlet without using the battery just for the meantime.
3. Turn on the laptop. If the laptop is able to power on, that means that the AC adapter is working fine as well as the DC port. If the laptop is not able to turn on, it maybe the AC adapter itself or the DC port.
4. Try to use another AC adapter if possible, make sure that that AC adapter is working fine. If the laptop is still not turning on, the problem is with the DC port itself. In that case, you will need to replaced the Motherboard itself.


Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

Gateway cx210x notebook: screen flicering and becoming pinkish


hi there, it may be that your cable connecting your monitor to the computer is being wiggled loose. You need to leave this to the pros as this can't be explained over the internet. You need to bring it to a computer shop for them to reconnect the computer. Tell them that the monitor cable is being severed from the graphics card.

Battery not charging


How old is the battery? If this laptop is a couple of years old, you may need a replacement, depending on how many recharge cycles have been done.
