The Adapter no longer works

The adapter for my "Brother GeoBook NB-60" no longer works. I can't power the computer on at all, and the batteries have already died. The Adapter cord doesn't appear to be visibly damaged, but there is obviously no current going through it when I plug it in. Is there a way to fix this/ a place to buy a new adapter?

Where can i get a compatible brother or epson printer for my brother geobook NB-60?

The Brother HL-1440 laser printer works with both the Brother Geobook NB60 and NB80C. I would also have an HP color inkjet here that would work. We have a pile of parts and experience with the Brother Desktop Publishers and Geobook.

My younger brother was trying to tape our Toshiba satillite notebook cord together but, he put the wrong wires together and than it sparked. The notebook no longer turns on but, when we had the fully...

The power adapter is probably faulty, shorted out when it sparked.
You will need a new power adapter.
I suggest you take the Toshiba to a computer repair shop first and get them to test both the laptop and the power adapter. Then you will know whether you need a new power adapter.

Acer one notebook no display and automatic shutdown

= if your laptop computer will not start =
laptops have power supplys that can lock up
the power adapters conectors break all the time 
and the batterys are designed to be "con$umable$" 

- - -- - -- - -power reset - - -- - -- - -- - -
remove the power adapter's wall plug & 
leave the power adapter plugged into the computer 
but pull the laptop battery out of the laptop.
press the power button just like you are trying to start it 
but press it longer, this will drain & reset 
the internal supply, now relese the button.

-- - -- - -power adapter only test - - -- - -- - - 
reconnect the power adapter's wall plug 
press the power button to start it with just the power adapter , 
If the power adapter starts the laptop on its own go down to  
"If the computer can be started"

If the power adapter does not start the laptop on its own 
leave the power adapter plugged into the computer but 
remove the power adapter's wall plug & press the power button 
just like you are trying to start it again, 
then relese the button 

- - -- - - battery only test - - -- - -- - - 
unplug the power adapter & put the battery back in  
press the power button to start it with just the battery

if the battery starts it on its own go down to 
"If the computer can be started"

if the battery ALMOST starts it on its own 
DO NOT BUY A NEW ONE! it may only be discharged 
locate another laptop just like yours and charge it, 
and yes this is crazy and yes i am sorry!.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
- if your laptop computer cannot start at all - 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

this can be caused by a bad; 
connector ($5-$60), power adapter($5-$60), 
battery ($70), internal supply ($40-$90), 
or main/mother board ($100-$300)

If the internal power supply is bad or if the 
power conector fails at random (intermitant) 
most of the cost is determined by how dificult 
finding parts and dismantling the laptop is 
and if it's external or internal

My hp pavillion was no power, please give an advise.

There could be a problem with the battery. A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
To verify this, unplug your laptop & try to run it on battery only. Watch out how long it will stay on (if at all). If it didn't work on battery alone, or worked but for a very short time, then your battery is defective.
