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?

1.Turn OFF the laptop, unplug the AC adapter and remove the battery. 2. Without the battery and AC adapter, hold the power button 10 secs. 3. Put the power sources back and turn ON the NB. 4. Test if the keyboard is already working.
Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall.
ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time.
Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.
= 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$umable$" so
- - -- - -- - -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!.
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
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.
Try the following. 1. Remove battery and plug in the AC Adapter and
check if it works If yes - Battery is defective If no - Motherboard Problem/AC adapter
2. Check the AC adapter LED indicator if its
lighted or not(double check by a multitester) If lighted - it works
properly if not - replace 3. Try to reinstall WINDOWS operating
system by the use of the installer CD 4. Reformat your computer and install necessary drivers and applications
