Dell laptop charger

Hi,

Today I was on laptop and everything was fine. I went outside in plugged charger into outside outlet and now it doesn't charge. It doesn't show its green light and it has a beeping noise. My Dell Laptop charger was working fine until one day i saw that the charger was plugged in the charger and jack but not charging the laptop. I checked the charger, and saw that the Green light was turned off. I unplugged the charger and plugged it in again. I saw that the green light turned on for a second and then turned off. and it is not working anymore. I know that the problem is with the charger because i tried using my brother's laptop charger and it was working just fine.

Is there any way to fix it? or i have to get a new one? and if i need a new one where can i get it from?

If the charger is older and since you saw the light go on then off again, it could just be the charger wires. Assuming your charger has a black box attached to it, try pushing the cord in towards the black box (usually the end leading to your laptop) . If that doesn't work, wiggle the cord in that area. If this works, your problem is simply the wire is worn out. You can fix it by exposing the inside wire where the bad connection is, snip it, reconnect and cover with electrical tape. I just did this to my sister's last week.

Unfortunately there is no way of fixing the charger, you will have to get a new one. The cheapest place to get chargers (AC adapters) is on Ebay. This is where I get all chargers for my shop. They have many vendors that just sell chargers, and looks like one for the Insp 6400 runs about $20.

I had this problem. I slammed the charger hard against the kitchen counter. I did it several times, using several angles. I did it while the charger was plugged in and beeping. Suddenly, it stopped beeping and the light came on. I'm sure it's still a fire hazard, but if you have a deadline to meet, just don't forget to unplug when you are done.

The battery is fully charged, and the ac adapter is plugged into the laptop, when i push the on button the laptop will not start


Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How to enable bluetooth


Your computer has to have a bluetooth radio. You can check
Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager
Do you see a Bluetooth Radio listed?

If not, you don't have BlueTooth on your computer so you will have to add a BlueTooth device by plugging one into a USB port.

If you have a BlueTooth radio, go to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device and Printers > Add a Bluetooth Device

This option is used to connect a blue tooth device (e.g. bluetooth headphons) to your laptop through your bluetooth radio.

See this Windows web page for more information.
Set up Bluetooth enabled device

I will respond to any additional questions you have.

Button keeps blinking


It sounds like it could be either the battery is going bad and not holding a charge or the adapter is. I have had really good luck with similar problems going to places like Batteries +, and large electronic retailers, and my favorite the small local mom and pop computer store; where I end up asking them If I could try one of the adapters from the floor model to eliminate if is a faulty adapter. Other then that I'd if its not out of warranty contact Acers online chat support at http://us.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/service

Take it back to the place of purchase and get a replacement as it is under warranty.
Do not try to fix it yourself as you may void your warranty.
