Question about Acer Aspire 3680 Laptop

1 Answer

I broke a piece of my laptop! The male part that receives the female part of the AC power adapter broke off of the laptop. Now, I have no possible way of charging my battery. Any suggestions on how I can charge my battery? Do I need to get a new motherboard?

Install external monitor from desktop to laptop


If your laptop does not have the 15 pin plug (VGA Port) then you will need to get some type of adapter that will make the monitor work. You probably have a DVI monitor.

You just need to make sure you get the correct type of adapter and make sure the ends that plug into the computer are correct such as male or female. For example think of the human male and female body parts when you look at adapters. The vga port on the computer is called a Female port, but the piece that plugs into it is called Male. It's the same with DVI ports.

I think you need a VGA Male to a DVI Female so below is a link to one and for $2.54 from Cable Wholesale.

I have a coleman powermate 6250 generator with a 4prong 220v female plug on the power panel. My travel trailer has a 3 prong male plug. How can I convert my generator or is there an adapter that I can...


You do not want to convert anything to a 220 v connection !!!! Your RV is 12 volt DC and 120 volt AC.
Use a 30amp female to 15 amp male adapter to plug in to regular household receptacle on generator. Available at hardware store and RV stores.

Broke off my ac power supply nipple on the inside of my laptop where can I get a new one to solder on


Hi, if the Notebook is still under Warranty it is not recommended to remove and solder the Notebook with a Female DC Input socket of the Notebook. Although the DC input socket is available in any near by Electronic repair shop, please repair only if the Notebook Warranty is expired.

Is this what you need? http://cgi.ebay.com/4pc-Gold-Plated-Aerial-Female-Aerial-Female-Adapter-/180435080974?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a02c4d70e
although I would be surprised if the signal you have would be correct to supply your fm tuner, you may be better off with something like this (depends on how good your fm signal is locally) http://cgi.ebay.com/FM-AERIAL-KIT-RADIO-RECEIVERS-BALUN-UNIVERSAL-/310283558296?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_3&hash=item483e575d98#ht_2068wt_876
Alternatively, and I know this sounds crude, poke a long piece of wire into the centre of the aerial socket on your tuner and pin it to the wall or a door frame, it often works if you have a decent signal to begin with.

The female power plug isn't accepting a male plug. Is it a common problem to have malfunctions in the hardware in that area, and if so, can it be fixed?


Female rejecting the male ... very common ...

Now for yor problem ... you have the incorrect power adapter ... voltage or amperage is not right for the drive. If this is new ... take it back and get the proper adapter. If it is not new ... check the voltage (ac or dc and amount) and the amps required ... go to Radio Shack or other electronics place and get what you need.

Can i use my mp3 player with a fisher rs 727 receiver/amp


Yes, just connect a male mini-plug/2 RCA male plug adapter into the mp3 player and connect the male RCA plugs to the AUX IN on the back of the receiver. It may take several pieces to "build" the adapter, e.g. often you'll find a male mini-plug/2 female RCA adapter, so then you'd need an RCA "patch" cable with males at both ends to complete the link.

I purchased the Porter Cable 20 piece accessory kit part A00438, and no idea on how to assemble this. No instructions included either. This is the kit that allows to put airpressure in your car, bikes,...


First get some teflon thread tape, for applying 2 or 3 tightly wrapped turns around the male threaded quick-disconnect adapters, threaded end on your air hose and compressor before installation.
Note: remember that the female quick-disconnect adapter is also a check valve that will only release air when a male quick-disconnect adapter is inserted, i.e. do not install a  male quick-disconnect adapter directly to an air compressor outlet.
Note 2:Always remember to wear approved eye protection when operating air tools.
Start by installing the female quick-disconnect adapters on a male threaded end of the air hose and on to the outlet port on the air compressor tighten the connections with two open end wrench's. Then install the male quick-disconnect adapters to the other end of the hose, blow-gun tool, and the air chuck tool, (tighten as described above). The other implements in the kit (wire brush attachment, inflation needle, etc...) can be threaded in to the outlet port of the blow-gun as needed.
The operation of connecting  quick-disconnects are as follows: Grasp the tool in one hand, and with the other hand grasp the air line near the end leaving the thumb and fore finger free to operate the spring loaded outer release cylinder on the female quick-disconnect by pulling back on it. With the cylinder pulled back, insert the male quick-disconnect adapter in to the female quick-disconnect adapter, then release the thumb and fore finger from the outter release cylinder, thus locking the two together. check to be sure the lock has engaged by lightly pulling at the tool. Reversing this process will disengage the tool from the air line.
Hope this helps Good luck
