Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

My laptop is not being charged or getting any connection from the AC adapter. I purchased a Universal adapter, but my model LM6232 is not compatiable with the Universal. So, I purchased an AC adapter specifically for this model, yet upon recieving it today, my computer is not recieving a charge.

AC adapter 4750z


The solution to your problem lies in one of the following three areas:

1.) Your charger is faulty and is therefore not able to pass power to your laptops battery.

2.) The charging connector on the laptop has come loose from the contacts. Therefore a bad connection.

3.) Your battery is faulty.

I think possibility 2 is the most likely, although you will have to test possibility 3 by removing the battery and plugging in your charger and seeing if the laptop powers on.If it does power on then that rules out possibility 1 and 2 leaving a faulty battery.

If you need to buy a new laptop charger, the following to adapters are for your reference:

Fujitsu lifebook blinking battery led, bad ac adapter?


i would try purchasing a universal laptop charger on ebay and see if it works. they are under 25 bux. worse case scenario you will have a backup ac adapter. be careful plugging in other ac adapters because the polarity could be wrong or it could have to much amps

Universal power supply targus tip for Dell Latitude D620, won't charge battery, pop up says slow and no (charge), use only Dell. Is there a Targus tip that will go on Model APA10 Targus Universal power...


the problem is the BIOS of the Dell system is looking for an ID signal from the AC adapter so it knows what adapter is connected. If the BIOS cannot ID the power supply, then battery charger is disabled.

You will need to get a Dell AC adapter.

Dell insprion laptop not charging the battery, showing IDLE when charger is connected to it, my charger is showing idle even in bios setting what is the problem


remove battery.
connect ac adapter.
make sure ac adapter led is on.
connect ac adapter to laptop.
check if ac adapter led still on after connection laptop.
turn on laptop then check bios if ac adapter is determined.
check bios as well if it is updated. if not then download the latest bios update from dell support site.
after updating bios charge the batt while laptop is not use. check if changes will happen on the number of charge. make sure you check the charge in bios not in windows.
if charge in bios made changes while on windows still says idle and not charging then reinstall the OS.
if all fails no changes in charge % batt then have the batt replaced.

Today my cord for my toshiba was behind my pillow and i was lying on it. and I didnt notice, but then it showed that my laptop wasnt charging did my cord just get too hot? will it work later?


The power adapter does not have a temperature sensitive device, therefore it won't stop for overheating if not in consequence of a fault.

Try leaving the power adapter unplugged for about ten minutes.
In the meanwhile also remove laptop battery and put it back.
Connect it back to AC and laptop.
Ensure that connection to laptop and power cord connection to AC adapter box are both well plugged.
Before turning on laptop leave it connected for few minutes.
If laptop still does not turn on and battery does not charge, then the AC adapter is faulty.
A further test can be done using a multimeter to read voltage on AC adapter plug.

A replacement AC adapter is not expensive and can be purchased online. Try entering in Google your Toshiba model followed by the words "power adapter".

Toshiba Laptop not Taking Charge


ya the solder connection connecting the ac power input onto the transformer is probably weak. aside from taking the case apart and resoldering the connection, not much else you can do.

My battery will not re-charge. Loose AC jack - maybe?


What is the Model name and Manufacturer?

If it is a more recent Laptop you should be able to purchase a replacement AC adapter.

I am unaware of a way to fix the AC adapter if it is within the cabling; I hope you manage to track down a cheap one and get that laptop booting soon ;)

Charger/power cord not working


your problem might not be the AC adapter but the AC jack of your laptop. if you cant keep a charging icon steady then maybe the AC jack of your laptop is loose already. you might need the help of a guy knowledgeable in electronics to help you out with this one.

Compaq Presario 1200 won't charge battery


dear N9YK

you can follow this

If you have a loose connection where you plug in the power on your laptop, or it works intermittently, you could have a bad dc jack. Symptoms
  • Move the power plug and the laptop loses connection
  • Broken or cracked dc jack
  • Laptop won't charge but worked on battery
  • Power LED and battery LED flicker when the adapter tip is moved
  • Battery won't charge
  • Sparks come out the back of the laptop
Why does this happen?
  • Flaw in manufacturer designs
  • Use of universal or non-original ac adapter
  • Lots of plugging and unplugging of the ac adapter
  • Tripping on or pulling the ac adapter cord
or you can check your dc amper in your adaptor

oke



thx
