Eee PC 2G power supply

The power supply cord is rated 110-240V. When using it on a 220 power supply the plug end of the cord popped and began smoking. No damage to the computer, but now I need a new power supply cord. Where can I purchase such a cord or can I snip off the plug end and attach a normal 110 plug so I can once again recharge my Eee PC?

Why don't you contact the supplier and get a replacement. It must still be within its 1 year warranty period?

The only thing to do at this point is to replace the Power Supply with a KNOWN to be good, compatible unit, and see if the rest of the computer hardware components are okay.

Going by your information stated that the Power Supply is an Enhance ENP-2224B SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply), it is a special shape.

If it wasn't for the Slim Micro-ATX computer case you have, you could use an easy to obtain ATX form factor Power Supply.

From a quick search though it looks like a replacement unit is affordable,

There is simply no way to tell if the motherboard, and/or Processor, and/or Ram Memory, and/or Harddrive, etc., is okay without having power.
Unless you transfer the components on the motherboard to another working motherboard.

[NOTE*
If your Power Supply has a rocker switch on the back that lets you use 120 volts, or 220 volts, make SURE it is set to the right voltage.

USA?
120 Volts
Europe?
220 Volts
Australia?

The power cord for your laptop is a transformer. However, is is in all likelihood, meant for use in the U.S. only and does not have a selector for 220v. You will need an power cord that is meant to work with 220v. I'm sure there is one available for your laptop. Just make sure that when you purchase it, that the output is rated the same as the one you use now and you will have no problems.

I accidentally plug my aiwa excelia cd player model xc-003 to 220 volts instead of 100 volts. Iheard a small popping sound when i plug the unit to 220 volts.


If you're lucky you'll have just blown the internal fuse.

You need to remove the cover and look for the little glass fuse on the PCB where the power cord comes in. If it has blown then look at the metal cap on the end of the fuse and is should tell you what rating it is (2A etc). You should also check to see if any other components appear damaged before replacing the fuse.

When I plugged my pc into the surge protector and turned it on, it began to start and then a loud pop, now it does not get any power. Can I replace the power supply to fix this problem.


Wow. Never heard this one before. If was like an electrical pop, then you could try using another power supply. But there is also a chance that your motherboard could be fried as well. I've never ran into that problem.

An International Power Supply usually has a power selector switch on the back of the printer. Asia uses 240 VAC (At least I think it does).

Check the back of the printer and make sure that it is set properly and try again.

Be aware that if you plugged a 220/240 source into the printer and the printer is set for 110, then more than likely, you have fried the power supply.

My eee pc 4G surf won't turn on. It started having problems when the power cord was bumped - causing it to immediately shut down. Then it just stopped booting all together. I replaced the power cord and...


Most likely, either the power jack inside the machine (jack itself or solder joints) or the plug on the power cord was damaged; obviously the plug is only a few dollars to replace, the jack also only a few dollars, but much more labor intensive. My experience tells me it's probably the power jack. If you have any way to externally charge your battery and, using it, find the machine operational, that pins it down pretty well. When the external supply is used, the internal battery is supposed to be switched out of the load circuit and into charging mode.

Plugged my computer into a 220 outlet!


You burned the Power supply you don't need to switch motherboard out just knew power supply. And in the future there is a switch located on the back of them that will make them a 220v powersupply. But usually only a high end PC for gamers will need that so just put in a new powersupply and you should be good

Asus Eee PC 2G series will not boot up


Try to unplug the battery, wait 10-15 seconds and plug it again. Sometimes it gets stucked with hardware issues and this is a kind of "reset". It doesn't affect your data.
