Looking for a high quality AC power adapter

Q: Looking for a high quality AC power adapter

I need a new AC power adapter for my monitors. I have three Acer S243HL LED monitors, and the power adapters basically exploded a few months ago (I heard a loud pop, followed by the monitor just turned off). I tested it with a working power adapter (the one I'm using now for my only functional monitor), and the monitor itself is fine. The power adapter is not.

Anyways, to prevent this happening in the future, could someone recommend to me a high quality power adapter which won't short out on me?

The power adapter that I'm using looks like this

A: Looking for a high quality AC power adapter

I think there is no such thing as a high end power adapter, you could buy one with goldplated pins and from a quality brand, but the thing is not to let them get very hot and take good care of them, apart from that i dont know any

I just bought a wireless highpower adapter since my room is so far away from my router/modem.

I used the software that came along with my adapter to scan the surrounding network, but it didn't pick up on my net work no matter how many time I scan it. But it does pick up a few of my neighbors' wifi signal.

But I could connect completely fine with my laptop itself.

Hi All,

I've been trying for a long time to find software that allows HIGH QUALITY dvd Rips. Ive been using Nero to rip DVD's but it only supports mpeg formatt, and no matter what settings i use, the quality sucks! I recently tried a product called DVDFab as it had good reviews and was suposed to be 'high quality'. It wasn't!

I've seen others who can produce EXCELLENT quality dvd rips, but i cannot! Does anyone have any experience and can recommend software that I can buy that will allow me to do high quality DVD rips??? Or even some techniques that I can use that maybe ive over looked? Id preferably like to rip in DIVX formatt. Anyone help?

A:High quality DVD Rip

I use dvd decryptor and then nero recode to rip my dvds, I agree with you though the qualitys not great, the only reason that i work with it is because im so used to it. Have you tried clone dvd? Or maybe ConvertXtoDVD to burn avi files to dvd?

I have this site about Beyonce Knowles, and recently bought myself a domain. Now, i joined in order to get "high quality" images, and i payed for that. But it turns out that HQ images are only for companies (like magazines and newspapers). People like me, get regular sized images and they are tagged

Now, i know there has to be another site(s) that offer HQ images for pay. I know Gettyimages has a lot of images but they are all tagged. Im willing to pay for the images. I know for a fact there are other sites because most music fan sites that have their own domain get their HQ from these sites. Thanks in Advance.

Dear TSG and friends: I run two computers, a desktop and a laptop. Both run on Windows XP. I use the laptop on my home wireless network, with the desktop as the connection to my cable internet service. That service gives me about 1Mb/sec bandwidth. The desktop has a dual-core 2.2GB/sec AMD Athlon. The laptop has a single core, Intel Celeron 2.2GB/sec.

On watching Youtube video streams on the desktop, I can most often set the quality down to 240p and avoid interruptions in the streaming.

On watching the same stream on my laptop (the desktop is hibernating) from my wireless home network, the choices offered me by the settings button are only as low as 480p.

Question: Why does the settings button on the laptop's screen not offer me the 240p choice? Can I fix that? I often wish to watch a stream in my living-room, but the interruptions are discouraging at 480p.

A:Settings Quality Choices too High for me

You should be able to see the same resolution options... I'm not too sure why you can't.

Just out of interest, since you are on a cable internet service, you shouldn't be having bandwidth/lagging issues. What speeds are you paying for? 1MB?

Does anyone know anything about this? I currently use PhoneZoo to create custom Ringtones for my Phone, but they ALWAYS sound horrible in comparison to how they sound when played back on my Computer. Why is this? I can't figure it out. At first I thought it was because my Phone (Samsung Alias 2) was somehow limited in its audio playback. But the Samsung's default Ringtones are SUPER high quality, so it should be possible to take anything and make it that great. But like I said, whenever I try and create custom Ringtones and send it to my phone, they sound like absolute crap.

Is there anyone who can advise on the correct settings to print high quality glossy, 2 sided point of sale sheets on a Canon iR C3200?

When we bought it, we had the idea that we could do short run POS printing and get close to professional quality ourselves. And that was demonstrated when we got the printer. However, a year later, I have not been able to get the quality I need. The printer has been recalibrated and serviced recently. I have tried using paper recommended by IKON, who sold us the printer and no luck.

Well I have this awesome high quality trailer from Hellgate:London and its in avi format. I want to set it as my desktop background (im using Vista) but I have to change it from avi to either mpg or wmv.

So my first question is whether I can get a better quality conversion from avi to mpg or wmv? Size isn't important, I have plenty of space. The original avi file is 56.6 mb.

Second, what converter should I use? I want to do this with as little quality loss as possible. I'm not sure, but I think the avi trailer is in HD and it would be an excellent background.

I've googled but the first thing i've tried was PRISM video converter, and it did the conversion in under a minute and its terrible. The movie looks like it went from 1280x1024 resolution to 320x240 resolution, and audio is horrendous.

I was just wondering if you guys know of any quality converters before I try any other garbage I downloaded randomly from the internet?

Hi J-son.I use WinAVI Video Converter on XP and it does a great job with virtually no loss in quality.

I just bought a Gateway laptop (Win 7 64-bits) with a Realtek high definition. I listen a lot to classical music and I am disappointed with the sound quality of the card.

I listen the music with a good Seinheiser headphone. The problem is not the headphone because I switched back and forth between the new laptop and a 6-years old Compaq desktop and the desktop sounds much better. On both computers, I have the equalizers set as flat and no audio effects.

The problem on the laptop is that the sound sounds "muffed", with no treble and no color. I checked the drivers and they are the latest.

I am pretty sure that this is a good quality card and the sound should be good. What should I try?

I have never heard of such a printer and have no idea if a machine such as this even exists.

There used to be a company in Germany called Tektronix who used to manufacture inkjet printers that cost more than a luxury car. They sold the printer side of their business to Xerox, who seem to have discontinued these very expensive products because they are not featured on the Xerox website.

I have two essentially useless DVD Players one of which I purchased about two years ago( Toshiba SD-4000KU2) and the second (Samsung DVD -1080P8)

The problem I ran into with both is that when i burn dvds on my computer and try to play them on these machines, both "May" play a few minutes of a dvd and then there is breakup and they freeze up OR they don't play them at all, not recognizing the disk indicating "No Disk". For a while I thought the disk burns were bad and then discovered that they not only played perfectly on my computer but also played on the dvd players of friends whom I gave burned disks to try.

When I went online to research the problem I discovered that lots of people were also complaining about having the same problem with these machines and others so apparently this is a common problem. I did the firmware updates that were available but they made no difference in the end. The companies ask for $80 plus shipping both ways to repair so that's out of the question.Both of these machines cost less than $50 each. So I am now assuming that they are simply cheap machines and thus the problem. I am trashing both of them.

As far as codec packages, I would stay away from packaged codecs and download only what is necessary--DivX521XP2K, XviD-1.02-29082004-- although the package ffdshow may have all you will need.

So I'm thinking about buying a nice pair of gaming headphones and I was wondering if I would be needing to upgrade my sound card as well (currently my comp just has the stock Realtek integrated sound card on the motherboard). I have a USB audio adapter and I heard that helps with the sound. I was reading some reviews of these headphones and saw something about "impedance" which is why I'm hesitant of buying them.

These are the headphones I'm looking at:


Also, if I do end up needing a sound card, I'm not sure I'll have a slot for it because I already used my PC 16 express slot for my video card.

Thanks in advance

A:Integrated sound card + high quality headphones?

gaming headphones are good, but they will only be able to amplify the quality of audio that is produced by your sound card. if you don't have an available PCI or PCIe slot for a sound card adapter, there are other options such as USB (you have this already) and even a dock that fits in your 5.25 drive bays! if you're a gamer (which it sounds like you are) then you will benefit from buying a dedicated sound adapter because not only will it sound better, but you will have access to a bigger variety of software features and options.

Set in a world of great castles and strange machinery, three heroes are bound to a mysterious device called the Trine in a quest to save the kingdom from evil.

Not sure if this is appropriate place for this thread, it's about saving high quality images on the browser with Dynamic IP Address.

I used to be a DSL when I was in college, since DSL uses static ip address, downloading images are clean and crisp like PNG. Any image format will do that. However when I switched to Mobile Broadband (since this is the only option in the province where I work), saving images were noticeably degraded (like a JPG format) even if I press CTRL+F5 to load higher. I ask a person who distribute broadband to our town, he explain that Mobile Broadband uses Dynamic IP address and Static IP for DSL, therefore it's a big difference between the two.

I wanna ask if there's a way to save images in high quality on a dynamic ip like it does on DSL with static ip. Thank for reading this!

A:Saving High Quality images on Dynamic IP user

I am ready to be corrected on this but...

There is no difference between dynamic and static IP. Dynamic is given from a range of IP address pool whereas static is reserved for that particular client again from the same pool.

Can you give a link to what you are trying to save? Maybe you are saving the link of the image and not itself(?).
CTRL+F5 where? in IE it just refreshes the page ignoring the cache.

I am about to install an ATI HD 5770 in my computer, and I am thinking about getting some games. I hear a lot of talk about games like Crysis heavily taxing graphics cards and what not.

If I play games like Crysis all the time (with as high settings as my card can handle), will that significantly change the lifespan or alter the card's performance at all?

A:Does a high quality game (Crysis) shorten the life of a GPU?

If I said yes, would you limit your game playing to Solotaire and Minesweeper ?

These cards are built for gaming.
So long as you have adequate chassis cooling and clean power delivery the card should not be significantly affected by intensive gaming. All cards fail eventually but normal gaming conditions should not significantly impact on it's lifespan, at least not until it has endured a few years of use.

hey all, I get weird black hatching lines across my model in Maya 6 when I turn on High Quality Rendering Mode. I have identified its my video card X800 XT Platinum Edition cause my friend has one too and he has the same problem. does anyone know how to fix this? If you turn on low quality lighting it fixes it but then you can't view normal maps which defeats the purpose.
I have tryed to reinstall my drivers, I've gotten the newest drivers, Ive gotten latest direct x, I've tryed screwing with the video card settings and nothing works.

I really need a fix for this so any information is much appreciated.

When I had XP, I could watch HD videos no problem at all and it was amazing. Now that I have vista, they jitter and stutter. Picture something moving smoothly across the screen, now picture is stuttering, I'm pretty sure its called Micro Stuttering.

It is not my connect, even if I let the entire video buffer out it still does it and this didn't happen with XP.

The video card I have is a EVGA Nvidia 9800 gx2 and I'm using the very latest drivers. I thought it may be a driver issue so I rolled back to the drivers I was using with XP and I still had the same problem.

Also noticed the issue isn't as noticeable in Google Chrome as it is in Firefox 3 but it still is there.

I have a WLI- CB HP 54 Buffalo wireless network card and it is supposed to reach further than regular wireless G cards, but my internal wirelesss on my laptop spans MUCH further.

I am using Windows XP SP2 and installed the driver and software about 3 times. I have found that windows configures it better than the software that came.

My question are a couple.. First. when i go and set up wireless zero configuration service to automatic, it keeps going off the next time i restart and when i search for networks it says "make sure your switch is turned on " .......

I called Buffalo and they said that it was my internal PCI adapter interferring with it. It is an A/B internal card. Within close range, the wireless card works fine.
I also wanted to know if there are dangers of having my internal A/B card and a wireless G card running at the same time.

Also the Buffalo says it is B/G, but doesn't pick up B networks well.

Thank you for your help.

A:Buffalo High Power Card Not high powered

Is your router A, B, or G? Also, I can't think of any danger, per se, of running both cards. This is a process called Multi-homing. If you plug in a LAN cable, you'll actually have 3 network connections, 3 IP Addresses, etc. Some apps may get confused & blow up, otherwise you're just using some resources unnecessarily. If it was me, I'd turn off the internal card if I had a G card I'd rather use...

Hey guys, I'm not a computer smart guy, so please deal with me on this. A friend of mine recently built me a pc, basically I picked out all the parts he recommended, and he put it together. Anyway, since its been built, back around end of September, it has been getting a blue screen of death while gaming, mostly on Team Fortress 2, as well as while watching youtube vids, specifically high quality ones. The bsod will not happen if your not gaming or watching high quality vids. You can browse the internet without a problem, comp will run flawlessly, its only during games, and quality vids it will blue screen.

I've been told the bsod error "124" is a hardware error, so I've tried replacing different parts in an attempt to fix the problem. I've replaced the graphics card, I've replaced the mother board, I've replaced the memory, and I've replaced the power supply 590w+. Still I get the same bsod, nothing has worked. I've updated bios for the motherboard, as well as updated the graphics card. I've ran memtest, and memory has passed, I've also ran DFT and hard drive passed. I hear if it was a hard drive problem, it would get worse over time, it hasn't gotten worse or better, it stood the same.

Theres also something I noticed with team fortress 2 Vs. Starcraft 2. The bsod will happen a lot more frequently during Team Fortress 2, than it will during Sc2. Can't figure that one out either.

This is a common problem (I see lots of posts)
The problem source is the [Dell] AC adapter.  PA-21 Family, 65W, P/N: NX061.  It is made in China.
I have an XPS M1330.  Using Dell after warranty service, replaced the Mother Board twice, replaced the battery twice, replaced the AC adapter twice - not fixing it.
Turns out the power warning message is very informative.  It states "Please connect a Dell 65W AC adapter or greater for best system performance".  So, I plugged in my Dell 95W adapter - WOW Problem Solved.
A lab test of my new Dell 65W AC adapter shows it to be 64.6 watts.  If this unit gets hot (like after several hours of use), it may not put out the full 65 watts - the system may not recognize the adapter, it may power the system ok, but won't charge the battery.
These units burn out after only a few months of use. Their cables are too fragile. If Dell's or their supplier's Quality Control can't produce a reliable 65W product - I found seveal "Made In USA" universal adapters.

A:AC Adapter - Alert - "AC power adapter wattage and type cannot be determined"

Well my solution was simple.
I just removed the battery pack and powered up my notebook. Then I turned off the notebook replaced the battery pack and VOILA. The error message was gone.

I discovered my old linksys dongle to be broken and faulty as it had constantly high ping and always dropped out signal even when not in use. I was using my boyfriend's TP-LINK TL-WN620G and my brother's Belkin F5D7050 usb adapter for a while, which worked fine, and have since bought my own brand new.
The TP-LINK adapter was good but did not work properly on my PC - if I used it for too long (4 hours or more) or left it plugged in while away, it would turn my PC to a blue screen DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. After numerous reinstallations and troubleshootings I figured it wasn't compatible since there wasn't an actual Windows 7 driver out there for the dongle and it worked fine on my boyfriend's XP machine.
However, since buying the new dongle, the belkin one as mentioned above, although it is the exact same model as my brother's and my father's (all used in this house), there are MASSIVE ping issues with it. 2 screenshots are attached of the ping of each dongle whilst using the internet normally to compare.

Well I think the title explains most of it. I have a bunch of paintballing movies that are in avi and a few others are mpeg formats. To name a software (price is not a problem) that will convert other video formats into a high or same quality VOB file for burning.

I've tried a few programs but they required me to use a crappy conversion to mpeg, then into VOB which ended in the whole movie all squared and chunked edges of detail. I need better quality because I want my files to stream together as smooth as possible, and not have chunched, crap quality in some places and then great quality (my video camera) on the parts where me and my crazy friends be me and my crazy friends.

Hey everyone

On Thursday, I received my copy of Windows 7 Home Premium. I skipped the Vista bandwagon, so I was moving directly from Windows XP Service Pack 3 (32-bit) to Windows 7 Home Premium. I opted to install the 64-bit version of Windows 7, as I had no issues when running the 64-bit beta.

As it turns out, I seem to have encountered an issue with my network adapter on Windows 7. Using any speed test site, such as, I get an extremely high ping (500ms +). I have tested another machine behind my router running Windows XP and there is no problem. Also, on the website, which tests connections per minute, I can only get around 200 on Windows 7, whereas I could get 2000+ on Windows XP with the same hardware.

Strangely, in games like Counter-Strike: Source, my ping is normal and in the 25-60 range on most nearby servers. Also, when running the ping command from the command prompt, most servers return a result lower than 100ms ... which is also normal. So, I don't understand why on,, and dslreport's flash speed test.. I get a ridiculous ping time of 500+ms. Web browsing does seem to be slow as well, as images take longer to load then they should.

I'm not sure whether this is a driver issue, or what. I have tried disabling both my firewall and AV software, so they are not at fault. I've tried 3 different version of the drivers for my NIC. One from the Gigabyte website, and two from Realtek's website (they released an update... Read more

For the last two weeks, every time I start my Dell INSPIRON E1705 while using the power supply I am greeted with the following message. "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined. Your system will operate slower and the battery will not charge. Please connect a Dell 90W AC adapter or higher for best system operation". I press the F1 Key and everything works fine. I've read about this on other websites and most say it's a design flaw in the power supply after the cord has been properly wound around the supply as designed. Apparently a few of the cords internal wire strands become broken and cause this message. My computer is from June 2006 and shouldn't be having this issue so early...or ever. This seems like a flaw that should have created some type of manufacturers recall since so many people are having this issue. I'm of course out of warranty, will Dell replace this free of charge?

A:Power Supply - "The AC power adapter type cannot be determined....."

You are correct, the failure is due toloss of the power supply ID signal. Sometimes this happens because of strain on the plug, which breaks the signal wire. Some even are so severe that the insulation breaks away from the plug; this is due to rough handling. The other cause is one or more of the power socket solder connections to the system board become broken. This also is related to severe handling. I have seen one case where all three power connections and three of four mechanical connections were disconnected. If the power supply is bad, a replacement will cure the problem. If not, then the socket is bad, and this will require a system board replacement. If you are experienced, you can try to resolder the connections. I am experienced and was not able to get my daughter's E6000 to work by resoldered. More recent Dells are using a replacable power connection board which is a much cheaper repair.

I have an IBM Thinkpad with a High Rate Wireless mini PCI adapter III radio inside. My router is a D-Link DI-524. I'm currently connected through an ethernet cable (DSL).
I have a separate computer connected to the router as the main connection. (I do file and print sharing, but i doubt that effects the problem I'm having.) This laptop (the one with the problem) occasionally connects to the same router through an ethernet cable, but should also be able to connect wirelessly.
The problem now is that my wireless connection does not show up (or rarely shows up) as an available network on my list of available networks. If it does, it's intermittent as to whether I can connect to it. For a while it seemed as though it could only connect to the wireless network if it was also connected by cable. If I can connect it lasts less than a few minutes, before the network disappears as an available network.
At the same time, my neighbors' networks do show up as available. They are protected, so I can't see if I can actually connect through them. I brought in a separate laptop which didn't have any problems connecting through my wireless. Furthermore, I borrowed a wireless usb adapter and was able to see and connect to my wireless and this computer that way. I'd rather not have to use an external advice though if possible.

If I shut off the POWER service high DPCs are eliminated. However, not having it on is not an option.

APPARENTLY, when it is active it is constantly checking status - that seems to be THE thing that slows any windows system down.

The system is designed to support both 45W and 65W adapters - see the specifications here -
When you plug in the adapter to the system, does the adapter stay firm or does it fall off easily? Is the adapter frayed? Could you test with another power adapter if possible?
Restart the system and press f2 key to enter BIOS - check the adapter status in BIOS with and without the adapter plugged in. Also, wiggle the adapter cable at the end and see if the status changes in BIOS at any point.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.

The short and terse User Manual notes on the final page that a 5Volt / 2.5 Amp Power Adapter may be connected. I called their customer support number and talked to a lady, but her best advice was return to the store and ask there. My experience with this store over the years has been fat chance for this kind of request. Has anyone got a suggestion as to where I can purchase such a USB Power Adapter?

A:USB Hub Power Adapter

Radio Shack would be a good place to start although you might have to get one of their adjustable models. A Google search should also turn up something. Actually I just replaced my D-Link powered USB1 hub with a USB2 model. The old one is just sitting around and it has a 5V 2.4A adapter. If you want it so you can use the adapter just PM me and I'll send it to you.

Hi, I have an ASUS A7M266 motherboard and 1.2 AMD CPU using Win98 SE. It came w/ the software ASUS Probe which tells me when it either goes beyond the threshold. The problem is that it pops up because the CPU temperature hits way over 100 degrees Celsius but just for a second. Also,the CPU fan goes at a low RPM at 2500 which is not normal (normal speed is 5800 RPM) - just for a second too. They both don't happen at the same time. this happens frequently everyday. Can someone tell me how to remedy this? thanks

A:Probe w/ High CPU Temp. and Power

Asus probe has been known to be very inaccurate and have that error message. Try downloading motherboard monitor and see what it tells you. It's freeware, suppose to work good.

So, after battling a myriad of problems with windows 10 for months now I've finally given up and went back to windows 7 and I'm noticing one main problem.

I was pulling 55 watts from the wall at idle with windows 10 and I am now pulling 120 watts from the wall with windows 7 with the same exact OS power settings, BIOS settings, and no Hardware changes.

As this is a HTPC, it is on idle a lot and that extra power is going to cost.

Is this normal? Does windows 10 really have half the idle power requirement of windows 7?

Hardware is:

AMD FX-8350
ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
Nvidia GTX 670

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

*Also I'm not seeing any abnormally high CPU usage or anything like that.

My mother was given a pretty nice HP pavillion entertainment laptop from a friend, but when I plug it in, the blue light (where I plug it in) comes on, but when I hit the power button, there is a faint high pitched squeel. Any idea what the problem could be? It will not power on enough to run any tests or anything. It is fairly new and would be great for my mom considering it was free, and she's never had a computer before.


A:High pitched squeel when trying to power on?

Is this the wrong forum?

This is off topic for these forums, but I thought I may as well try.

Im looking for a LED flashlight, here are my potential requirements:

Very bright (maybe 3W Cree, though im not sure I know what im talking about, i was referred to them many years ago).

single LED (only ONE led in flashlight please, no multi LED arrays).

Small and compact, fitting only two CR123 rechargable lithium batteries and the LED itself.

High quality (prefereably not made in china... )

Below ? $30 - $40.

Looks good.

I prefer a link to a trustworth retailer for the flashlight, another for 2 rechargable lithium CR123 batteries would be appreciated.

Im sorry if no one here knows enough about LEDs...

A:High power, compact, LED Flashlight?

"Im sorry if no one here knows enough about LEDs"...

Me too. I have seen bright LED flashlights all over the place. Google can't point you in the right direction?

I have a Precision 7510 updated with the latest Bios and drivers. Today my TB15 arrived. I haven't tested connecting a monitor to it yet only a network cable and USB 3.0 stick - this worked fine.
I also tried starting the laptop from the button on the TB15 which also works fine.
However on startup I receive an error message:
"Alert! You have attached an undersized 130W power adapter to you system, which is less than the recommended 180W power adapter" ... message carries on a bit.
Now the thing is both the TB15 power adapter and 7510 power adapter are the same (identical part number) and  are shown to be 180W output.
What's the problem here and what do I need to do ?

A:Undersized power adapter

Any one any idea on this error ? Message appears at Bios post stage... i.e. early on just after switching on.

I recently purchased a Del Latitude 7202 Toughbook.
At same time purchased 12V power adapter.
The adapter was shipped separately.  SKU 469-4546.  The power plug did not fit computer.
It is too fat.  Spent 4 hours with tech support and they told me the wrong part was shipped.
They said they would send a replacement.  10 days later I get a package with an HDMI cable in it.
Call support back, was told they would just issue me a credit and I can purchase one online.
I was told I needed part.  450-AAYR.  Web page for that part lists the 7202 as compatible.
It arrived yesterday.  Still doesn't fit.  I am returning it as well.  
What is required to get the correct part?

Hi all,

i hope im posting in the right section....(apologies if not)

The power adapter/charger for my toshiba laptop failed recently.

Im looking for a replacement and have see several different options.

The original toshiba part (part no: PA3290E-3AC3) is available for about 50 pounds
however ive seem lots online which are the same spec, and described as replacments for the above part. the thing is these cost less than half the price of the original
Although these are not the genuine part it says they will work.

i was a bit worried that it may damage my laptop if i dont use the exact part.

could anyone advise me on this please and the best thig to do.


A:power adapter does not work

I have a Toshiba that I am using an adapter made by Lite-On. I have been using it for about 2 years and no ill effects. It was about 1/3 the cost of the Toshiba adapter.

I have a compaq nx6325 lap top, which will not turn on at all. The power adapter
shows 18V between the inner and outer ring and appears ok, led on etc.But what's the tiny center connector for in the plug? Should there be a voltage on it to earth, or to the ring connectors?Finally,should I be able to power-up the lap-top with the power adapter plugged in, and the battery out?

A:Power adapter center pin

Sounds like the Centre pin has broken away and lodged itself in the plug. I cannot tell you which is positive and which is negative with regards to the rings on the plug. Because different Manufacturers use different combinations and with that different Voltages too. Generally speaking the outside piece is the male end and the receiving plug is the female -go figure-
Hope this link works you can see what I am mentioning, obviously this is not your cable but for the example of male to female ends the description matches the pictures ( not the 'Y' cord on the link )
