Hi jyasa,

More likely the mother board - because about all the modern laptop built today are integratedly built into a single board, where the power port is also integrated.

Hope this helps and good luck.

ASUS adapter for 501J series has a short in the cord. Am in need for a Model # ADP-65JH Input 100-240V Output 19V - 3.24A. What do I need to order. E-mail: krfecht@mac.com


You need a mains adapterthat has Input 100-240V Output 19V - 3.24A and the input plug that fits into the power socket of your laptop. It does not need to be from ASUS.

Google search the Internet for a suitable power adapter, make sure the output voltage is the same and the amps is 3.24 or higher.

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop. The original adapter is 100V, 1.l3A input and 19V, 3.95A (DC). Can I use an adapter with 100-240, 1.1A input and 19V 3.42A output?


The input voltage doesn't matter - the 100-240 just means the adaptor will work in most countries.

The output voltage is the same, and the current is only slightly lower - so as long as the plug to the laptop is the same AND has the same polarity [+ and - in the same places on the plug] then yes, you will be able to use it.

Laptop will not stay powered after replacing dc jack


Dear friend,
You must have some knowledge atleast about the various kinds of power supplys used in different electronic appliences. Otherwise you can't move further. The power supply generally goes to various ICcs and switching devices in the motherbord for differnt purposes. It varies from manufacturer to manufacturer; model to model and so on. What about your status in electronics? The output voltage of the adapters - and thus which in the motherboards- varies form company to company and model to model. You can veiw it on the adapter as ' OUTPUT:19V, 4.74A' and like this. It will be the reading that you must get with the adapter. If you don't get this voltage -without plugging it in the AC outlet- the adapter is faulty. If you don't get the voltage mentioned in the adapter on the motherboard- if the adapter is good- then it is somthing wrong on the motherboard.Reply if you need further assistance.

My Gateway laptop use AC cord with the output 19v = 3.42A. can I use the AC cord with the output 19v = 3.95A?


Yes you can use one that has an higher current rating. The system will only use what it needs. If you try to use one with an lower current rating the power supply would fail. Just check to make sure the pin out is the same..ie postive tip or negtive tip.

Melting power adaptor


Is the power adaptor made for the country you are living in? It's possible the plug you are plugging it into has a higher current than the plug was certified for. Have you tried plugging the laptop in in another location (like, in a different building)? You may just need to replace the adaptor, how old is it?

Laptop adaptor problem


Yes should be no problem if the plug will fit in the laptop. Probably won't charge the battery but seeing as it is putting out less amps I can't see it hurting anything. Have used an adaptor like that on my IBM for some time now. Calls for 4.5 amps but I only have an adaptor that puts out 3.8. Works fine just have to turn it off to charge the battery.

No power


Measuring the voltage outputs without applying a load doesn?t eliminate the adaptor as the problem. You also have to know how may amps it can supply as well. To answer you specific question common problems are defective battery, A/C power supply and my favorite?s defective power connector or circuitry inside. When you plug in the A/C power adaptor do any of the LEDs light, up? Does anything happen? Also try removing the battery, plugging in the A/C adaptor and try powering up. If this doesn?t work please supply answers to the above questions plus any other pertinent information you may have. As always please don?t forget to rate the posting but please wait till after we?ve finished.
